Dalan joins the team at Archieboy Audiobook Production

Dalan joins the team at Archieboy Audiobook Production

SoundFridge continues to grow as I was invited to join the team of professional audio book producers at Archieboy.  This company works with publishers and rights holders to create audio books that will be sold on Audible.com.  This is a significant step forward for SoundFridge and will open up whole new kinds of possibilities.

Archieboy produces about 50 audio books per month.  They identify projects with good sales potential, then hire audio book actors directly to produce them.  This approach is a little different than the revenue-share model that is used on ACX.  It helps rights holders avoid the frustration of getting low-quality auditions for revenue share projects (as we’ve talked about here), while allowing audio book actors to eliminate their risk exposure for accepting them.

Thanks to Bo Benent, PhD and the team at Archieboy Audiobook Production!  Here’s looking forward to a fruitful partnership.

SoundFridge closes deal to produce Dan Stirling’s “3 Steps to Success”

SoundFridge closes deal to produce Dan Stirling’s “3 Steps to Success”

UPDATE: This audio book is now live on Audible.com.

“It is easy—far too easy—to get into the mindset of ‘I can’t begin my path to success until I read this one more book I just heard about,'” writes Dan Stirling in his new book, 3 Steps to Success: Create the Life of Abundance and Fulfillment You Were Put on Earth to Enjoy.  “This book is designed to get you started on your path to success, as quickly as possible. It doesn’t matter whether you are 12 or 92. There are a million paths to success, but most start you reading, learning, and preparing for an unnecessarily long time when you should be taking action. So if you want success to come immediately, then begin here.”

Cutting the clutter

Often we are too busy to be successful.  Dan Stirling urges the reader to consider how their goals and activities fit with their life purpose.  In chapter 12 (“Finding Focus Through Rituals), he writes: “Any time you are confronted with a new obligation, whether at work, at home, or with family, ask yourself where it fits into your goals and dreams before accepting it. If your boss asks you to take on a new task, you should consider, ‘Is this going to add value to the company or dilute my ability to focus on value-adding work?’ It could be an organization asking you to contribute your time to an event or to recurring meetings. Remember to determine whether it adds value to your life. If an organization is important to you, figure out whether you can better serve it and yourself by donating money to it in place of your time (and maintaining your focus on your business and personal life).”  Our moments are precious, he observes.  After all, each moment adds up to part of a life.

13 chapters of self-inspiration

Stirling’s book includes 13 chapters covering a variety of topics, including how to find your absolute truth, dreaming big and in vivid detail, prosperity and freedom, the legacy mindset, (re)igniting focus, learning to forgive and move on, using obstacles as opportunities for growth, and much more.  Readers (or in this case, listeners) will find themselves buoyed by his wisdom, conversational tone, and occasional touch of humor.  Dan Stirling’s book draws upon years of research and his work as a life coach to help the reader become their own inspiration.

Dan Stirling is the founder of 2 Spare Minutes. He is available for individual coaching and speaking engagements.  You can reach him at dan@2spareminutes.com.

Audiobook edition coming soon

SoundFridge is honored to partner with Mr. Stirling to bring this powerful nonfiction book to audiobook form.  It will be available on Audible.com, iTunes, and other audiobook retailers.
