Guests of the Book Launch will receive a FREE copy of the eBook.
The full book title is Conquering Hollywood the Screenwriters Blueprint for Career Success.
As you will find out, after hearing this interview or reading the book, solid business principles rarely change from one business to another and whether you are a writer, author, screenwriter, producer, etc.. if you don’t treat what you are doing as a business, there is greater room for failure.
I have known Gary for a few years now as a great friend and mentor. Gary is my go to guy when I have business questions or issues. He is also the guy I go to when I just need to get some positivity in my life. Gary is empathetic and incredibly supportive, he is rarely critical or judgmental, but at the same time, he does not pull punches or allow for pity parties or whining.
Gary has talked about putting out a book for a couple of years now based on his very successful “Scaling the Great Wall of Hollywood” teleseminar, so when I heard he was getting ready for his book launch I immediately asked for an interview for the book.
Gary is one of my favorite story tellers and story tellers always make for the best and most interesting interviews. I was not wrong… this interview will go down as one of my favorites, as Gary really gets down to the core of what success is made of. Relationships, failing forward, truth, consistent persistence and so much more.
I do many interviews where as soon as the recording starts, the interviewees change their demeanor. They go into marketing mode or they become nervous and have a hard time conveying their thoughts and feelings. Gary is Gary. He talks to me in this interview the way he talks to me when we go out for coffee.
I am excited about this book “Conquering Hollywood” because Gary has worked every aspect of the business and been successful in each. Gary found scripts, sold scripts to major studios, hired talent and crews, found funds and produced films from the ground up.
I believe this book will do more than teach screenwriters how to break into Hollywood. I believe it can teach anyone in any business how to succeed in conquering the challenges of business and life.
Do yourself a favor and get to the book launch and if it is too late to do so, read this book. I believe you will be sending this one to friends. – JW
