Ep 4: One Book Agent Away from Inspiring Creativity in the Masses

Allen Gannett is the Author of The Creative Curve and former founder and CEO of TrackMaven (merged with Skyword), a marketing analytics platform whose clients have included Microsoft, Marriott, Saks Fifth Avenue, Home Depot, Aetna, Honda, and General Electric. In this episode Allen and I discuss the impact of his book agent, Jim Levine, and how he helped make Allen’s dreams possible. He discusses how even though Jim was supportive and encouraging in his feedback, he also pushed Allen to be better in his work and his writing. After navigating all the challenges of writing a book proposal, Allen shared his feelings of signing a book deal with Penguin Random House during the Election on Donald Trump. Towards the end of the episode, Allen talks about the aftermath of releasing his book and the opportunities that arose after releasing The Creative Curve.
