Enter Elmira Bayrasli who I’ve known since we both participated in Dialogue2010.

When her book launched last year, and she was in Istanbul for a few days, I asked if she would share some of insights and takeaways from her experience.

As I reviewed our interview, it became clear that Elmira’s generous sharing of her experience can apply to anyone in creation-mode, so whether you’re writing a book, building a business, or creating a product, there is something for you in this 30-minute interview.

Here’s what you’ll hear us talk about:

  • How a daughter of immigrants learned about entrepreneurship in an effort to create jobs for people
  • How the Silicon Valley spirit of entrepreneurship has gone global
  • Understanding how a book (or other creation) is like another member of the family
  • How to shift your story to the point of view of your reader (client/customer)
  • Elmira’s favorite mantra to overcome perfectionism
  • Gearing up to face the physical, mental and psychological obstacles that may derail your efforts
  • Who to have on your support team
  • What happens when you say yes to yourself rather than wait to be invited to the conversation
  • Elmira’s advice for anyone at the beginning of the book creation process
  • The most joyful part of creating this book
