Hey Martin,

I agree - Amazon is fantastic for individual publishers like you and I, but they're constantly in legal battles with publishing companies like Hachette.

I'm also an entrepreneur, and I think these lessons apply well to people like us. For example, every business is based on strategy, whether we use that term or not. Last year business strategy shifted to incorporate customer experience because it's a rapidly growing field (lesson #2).

I've also found that I need to connect with other entrepreneurs to exchange ideas. Many of my best moments come out of those conversations (lesson #3).

What sort of work do you do, Martin?

Roy: Thanks for your reply. I am a blogger, podcaster and social media evangelist, spreading better ideas on new business, business philosophy and the good life.

This spring / summer I will be involved with a new online venture, spreading messages on different gears to specific target audiences. The goal is to evolve into a "network of brands, blogs and shops for the benefit of your social life."

Roy: Why do you think book publishers "hate" Jeff Bezos? I will publish my forthcoming book via Amazon's service called CreateSpace.

How could I as a solopreneur, apply these 3 lessons on my worklife?
