Who we have today on Internet Dreams is a very special individual, author, speaker, and social media expert.
Yup, it’s Jon Acuff!
I want to personally thank him for taking some of his time to answer a few of my questions.
Before we move onto those questions, let me formally introduce him to you guys who might not have heard of him yet.
Hence the title of this post, the New York Times (and the Wall Street Journal) has recognized him as a successful Bestselling Author of four books.
His other three books:
Not only becoming a successful author, prior to becoming an author he has worked with large brands such as Bose, Home Depot, etc..
He even works with Dave Ramsey and joined his team!

I hope you guys have gotten an idea of who Jon is, ever so slightly.

Of course, he has his own blog and you can see it at: acuff.me
In this post on Internet Dreams today, I’ve asked him my top three questions.
Again, it was very unselfish of him to step down to Internet Dreams and answer a few of them.
I hope only success to you in 2014 and the upcoming years.
Continue to kick ass and show the world what it takes to achieve true success!
Q: What is your secret on being discovered and featured on large media brands such as CNN, the New York Times, etc…?
I don’t really feel like it’s a secret. There’s not one special thing that I did, it was more that I didn’t stop. I’ve written millions of words online and it built up over time.
You even wrote a book on this. I bet it must have helped many people pull out from their regular, boring job and put themselves into their dream job.
Q: Now, how do you juggle your regular job and work on your dream job simultaneously? How do you keep yourself from burning out during this process?
You make sure you leave time to rest. Rest is a key part of hustling. I think a lot of people forget this and end up getting burned out.
It took an unimaginable amount of work to even have your first sale, never mind become a “Bestselling author”!
Q: Based on your experience on writing books, what is your number one tip you can give us on writing a successful book?
Don’t wait to figure your voice out. The only way you find your voice as a writer is to write. Just keep writing.
