In today’s episode, we learn about getting creative projects done with soon to be Canadian MEGA star, Daniel Beirne. Also, Kevin eats perogies and talks about not dating in small towns. Plus Catherine refrains from spilling the beans.

Daniel Beirne is one of the creators of Space Riders: Division Earth – a web series through CTV that won a Canadian Screen Award in 2015. He’s also won a Canadian Comedy Award for Multimedia / Best Writing in a TV or Web Series for another gem, Dad Drives. Dan has many creative projects to his name (as you’ll see int the show notes and his imbd page), and has a knack for getting things done (and done well). In today’s interview, Catherine picks his brain about being creative and productive, and why it’s important to treat each project like it’s your career – because it is! Whether you’re making moola or not from the gig.

Writer, producer, director and actor – Daniel Beirne is an up and coming Canadian talent to notice.

Kevin has been working with a blogging expert, Jenna Dalton, who has been helping him and those in Kevin’s webinars learn how to write and pitch guest posts for blogs. Registration for Jenna’s course ends Sunday April 26th 2015. So, giddy up if you want to learn about guest blogging. In today’s conversation, you’ll learn:

  • Why you need an email list
  • Why you want to guest blog
  • How to find your audience
  • What is the effective writer
  • How to pitch well and serve others
Register for Introduction to Guest Blogging

And to be clear, Kevin works with Jenna. His writing coach community has been asking for marketing advice, so he’s teamed up with Jenna to help fill that need. (‘Cause Kevin just doesn’t get blogging. It stumps him.) That means he does make money if you decide to buy the course. Yay Kevin making money by affiliation! Yay learning how to guest blog! Yay life!
