Transcript from the Episode

[00:00:00] Mark: Welcome back to another edition of the Boostly Podcast, and this is a very special one because I have some breaking news.

[00:00:13] Mark: So, uh, really big news today, uh, on today, a very special day. We have just launched the book Direct Blueprint. This is the follow. To the playbook, the follow up to the workbook. This is the blueprint. Uh, please, please, please head over right now to Amazon. Uh, go to your store, uh, and go and find the book Direct Blueprint.

[00:00:36] Mark: Uh, now the reason why this is special because as you know, earlier on in this year, I released a playbook. It went really well. Worldwide bestseller, all those cool things. Um, and it really impacted a lot of people, but it focused solely on marketing. And from what I've learned from throughout this year and from chatting to people that are getting started, or maybe even like a year in two years, or maybe even a couple of properties, and there's still so many people that are struggling with the foundations, the basic things that they need to have in place to be able to not only.

[00:01:06] Mark: Start a short term rental business to scale it, grow it, and potentially sell it. So the idea was, is I wanted to reach out to some of my friends, some of my peers, vendors in the industry that could help contribute to a book. So this is just not me. We've got some amazing co-authors that have put together this book.

Co-authors of the book

[00:01:27] Mark: So, uh, we've got Chris Mor, uh, and Neely from ipr. Uh, we've got Maddy from. We've got a team at Price Labs.

Uh, Leo and the team there. Great work, uh, Manum, which is Mark, which is Allie, which is Sage. Great work from behind the team there. Dee Travel, which is something that I'm personally, selfishly really wanting to get into this book, which is all about how cryptocurrency and Dao and this web free world is going to influence the world of hospitality as we know it.

[00:02:19] Mark: Um, so it's great work from the team there. Uh, and we've got the co-host expert, which is Roberta Nuez, which takes the idea. , um, working with corporates to a whole other level, and probably one of my favorite ones is I get to showcase the talents of Tom O'Brien, who is someone who's been. With me now, since 2017, uh, we started working on one website together.

[00:02:42] Mark: Now we do thousands together. He's the CTO of Boostly and I wanted to give him his moment to shine in this book. And we've got a chapter. So each one of these offers, each one of these vendors have contributed a chapter to the book. And the goal with it is that for everybody that you've got with here, you've got all of the foundations that you can place at the bottom before you start to build your house.

The goal of the book

[00:03:01] Mark: And the playbook was all about don't build in your house on someone else's. The blueprint is all about those foundations.

Profits go to charity

[00:04:00] Mark: Now, the big reason why I want you to go and grab this book today, go on to Amazon. It's called the Book Direct Blueprint, is that every profit that we make from the book sale, every single profit, so after Amazon have taken their cut and all those other things. Any profit that is left, and hopefully there's tons of it, is gonna go to charities.

[00:04:16] Mark: Um, something that I really wanted to, to sort of do with this book and all of the offers are on board of it, um, we're gonna influence and we're going to help food banks. So we're gonna do it locally. We're gonna do it, um, statewide, countywide, countrywide, and we're gonna help all over. Uh, so if, you know, if there's a food bank that really does need some, uh, needs some money, please reach out to me.
