||Business of Garden Writing: Session 3
Steven shares his insights after stumbling upon the concept of the “long tail” when he wrote a niche, self-published book that is now in its 4th print run. The book—which isn’t for sale in stores—has built Steven a worldwide audience, helped him be known as an expert, and has allowed him to have lots of fun embracing his garden nerdiness. If you’re an entrepreneur but full-time selling and marketing isn’t for you, this talk will help you as you think about the subject of your next project.

Adam Bienenstock tells us all about his garden/playground and his philosophy that underpins his projects.
