On occasion, I love to introduce you to extraordinary men here on Extraordinary Women Radio. And this is a good one, my friends! Today I’m pleased to introduce you to John David Mann, who has coauthored 30 books, including the bestselling classic The Go-Giver with Bob Burg and a handful of New York Times and national bestsellers.
In this delightful interview:
- John narrates eye-opening analogies that became his light not only when he’s writing books but also in the way he lives his life.
- He reminisces his younger days and his feeling of fulfillment when composing songs that eventually led to him discovering his love for words.
- Enumerating the steps and embracing the not—so glamorous parts that most aspiring writers disrupt while laying their words to paper.
- John discusses the impact of letting the story unfold in itself and how beautiful it is when it takes you in a new direction that you would never thought otherwise.
- Listen as to why John looks forward to the process of revisions and how it helps elevate his work from good to better.
John David Mann started out as a concert cellist and composer. At 17 he dropped out of school and started his own high school, where he went on to teach. He pinballed through careers in holistic health, publishing, and sales leadership before becoming a full-time writer. He has coauthored 30 books, including the bestselling classic “The Go-Giver” with Bob Burg and a handful of New York Times and national bestsellers. His first novel, coauthored with former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb, is “Steel Fear,” just came out this July. Iconic “Jack Reacher” author Lee Child calls it “an instant classic, maybe an instant legend.”
“Ultimately, once you got the story to emerge, the story becomes the boss. You have to serve the story.” – John David Mann
