TAP 045 - Zander Robertson on Honouring His Gift, Travel & Becoming a Professional Ghostwriter

Z.jpg

Summary:

In this episode Zander Robertson shares some great stories and insights that he's had in his life to date.  Including following his heart to become a writer and making some hard decisions in the process.

Zander Robertson is NOT a professional writer. At least that's what he told himself for most of his adult life. A personal breakthrough at the age of 32 finally woke him from his slumber and got him back into writing where he belonged all along. The signs were there from a young age, when Zander ran a newspaper with his brother and cousins. What pulled him away from his love? Who knows? Social pressure? Failure of vision? 

Experiencing vulnerability in a business mastermind group for the first time ultimately led him back to his passion. 

Today, Zander enables world-class, heartfelt people to tell stories and share powerful messages. He's ghostwritten more than 20 books over the past 5 years and coaches new writers.
