This week on The Type A Creative we have Sonia Ruyts and Kimberly Rich chatting about what it’s like to write a book while running a business. Both Sonia and Kim are coaches that work with creatives, they both host their own podcasts, and they both are fighting for time to finally write their book already!

On this episode we talk about:

  • Do eBooks count as books?
  • Personal writing vs. writing about other people
  • When do you start the editing process?
  • How does your Type A hinder of help you get that book on paper
