Read Louder than Words: Harness the Power of Your Authentic Voice Online Free - The next step in personal effectiveness, by the acclaimed author of The Accidental Creative and Die Empty.
There has never been a better time to build an audience around your idea or product. But with so many people and companies clamoring for attention, it’s also more challenging than ever to do work that deeply resonates with the marketplace and creates true and lasting impact.
According to Todd Henry, the key to standing apart from the noise is to find your unique voice. Those who identify and develop their voices will gain more attention and wield more influence. But first they have to identify what they truly stand for, develop a compelling vision, and become masters of expressing their ideas in whatever media they choose. Henry offers strategies, exercises, and true stories that illustrate the five attributes of resonant work:
• Authenticity: Uncover the narratives that are at the core of your personal and professional identity.
• Uniqueness: Identify what makes your work distinct from that of others, and learn to creatively package and present your message.
• Consonance: Cultivate internal consistency and harmony in your work.
• Empathy: Listen to your audience’s aspirations and struggles to make your message more compelling.
• Timing: Learn how to coordinate your work with ideas that already have cultural momentum.
Making your work speak is a life-long process of trial, error, and realignment. Henry’s audiobook will help listeners build a body of work that resonates deeply and achieves lasting impact.

Where I got the book: Audiobook from Audible.
This was a bit of an impulse buy because it was recommended by a blogger I trust, but for me it was the right book at the right time. I’ve been doing a lot of work on the B-word, branding, lately, because I’m at the point in my writing business where I...

Didn't finish it. Good content, just too dry for me. Too many other books calling my name ... not sure why I lost interest.

I might as well rename my blog "cover first, blurb later" because for whatever reason I thought this was a self help book for introverts when I initially won it from Goodreads.
Well, it is self help, just for business type people like bloggers and writers and the like.
Obviously this book applies t...

Excellent book, loved it. I have read it carefully and even took notes. This book I would recommend to everyone who has an instinct and drive to achieve an inner strength. I paint, draw, and write. But I get discouraged easily. Inside me I have a need to do these things and for some reason I stop...

Innovative; this book shed light on points I had never considered. I'm glad I stumbled upon this read because, with a little practice, my writing will never be the same. Thanks, Todd Henry.

A book about finding your voice. These are the thoughts I'm still thinking about...
"If you examine the most contributive, impactful, and ultimately influential people throughout history, the one thing that clearly sets them apart is their unique voice. They had developed a personal expression tha...

I came across Todd Henry after reading "Die Empty". I appreciated his simple, but highly insightful approach to creativity and decided to join the Facebook book club for the next book he wrote. I finished reading it one day and took over 7 or 8 pages of notes that I want to follow up and integrat...

Once again, Todd Henry has written a unique perspective on how we can find our voice in the midst of a noisy world. I devoured Todd's previous two previous books, The Accidental Creative and Die Empty. In this volume, he inspired me to not follow the crowd but to have a vision for finding meaning...

Steven Johnson's keeping a spark file.
(1) What is it? a document containing observations, hunches, incomplete thoughts and half-baked ideas: Let's make it a habit to regularly reread this file to see if any of previous ideas or observations are relevant to what I am currently working on.
