10:30 - So it's like, I have a book, I want to tell my story. We can actually tell your story in a blog post or a book, but the book obviously has a spine, but it may not sell. Maybe you sell 200 books but you're blocked. Now your post we'll reach 5000. So what do you want to do? If they tell me I'd rather do a book than a blog post, then I know they're doing it for the fame because they want their name on the spine.
20:00 - I remember reading a book a long time ago and it said just put on some lipstick and you'll be fine.

59:37 - Final Words
Our Final Words of the Show:
I always tell people, those that show up, go up, meaning, just show up in your life, show up at places when you're invited to different things to show up. Then bring your A-Game, bring your best self, show up to go up.
Don't just be in life where it's just participating but really be intentional about it. Where you are going and who you are meeting matters, if you genuinely liked someone, like, I genuinely like Scott, make sure that you make those personal connections. Social media and all of this technology make it really easy for people to hide. But if you're really real with people let people know that you like them that you appreciate them that, that you promote them, you share with them, and it just works.
