When Cesar Kuriyama saved up enough money to quit his advertising job at the age of 30, he planned to take a year off to travel and spend time with family. To document the year, Kuriyama filmed one second of video every day.
“After just six weeks, I realised I was going to be doing that for the rest of my life,” he says.
After editing the clips into a single video, Kuriyama had not only a record of daily life, but a new perspective on how he lived day to day. Inspired by the experience, he developed a smartphone app, “1 Second Everyday”, which will allow users to create their own videos.
The app is funded at Kickstarter successfully and on its way to go online!
With Shawn Welch, a tech wizard, Guy wrote APE to help people take control of their writing careers by publishing their books. The thesis of APE is simple but powerful: When a self-publisher successfully fills three roles—author, publisher and entrepreneur—the potential benefits are greater than with traditional publishing.
APE is 300 pages of tactical and practical inspiration. People who want a hype-filled, get-rich-quick book should look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you want a comprehensive and realistic guide to self-publishing, APE is for you.
