Several years ago, Dave Flanagan was laid off from his “boring computer job” (his words). But it’s what happened next that is interesting. He took what should have been a setback and turned it into completely different career in a completely different field; writing guidebooks.
Since then, Dave has authored or co-authored 5 super high quality guidebooks on climbing, cycling, and traveling in Ireland. Join me as I talk to Dave about how he made the transition, the ups and downs of writing for a living, how he selects projects to work on, and much more!
Note: this episode was recorded over a year ago (sorry!), so Dave’s newest book on Cycling in Ireland is already out! Get it here!
