Synopsis

What does it take to start a movement? How can an ordinary person build a life that creates meaningful ripple effects across the globe? Could one even influence his own and others ego?

Casey Fenton, founder of Couchsurfing, has spent the last 20 years pondering and answering these provoking questions. Casey’s efforts building Couchsurfing, which he grew to a tight-knit community of 20 million participants offering friendship and free accommodation, launched one of this century’s greatest living experiments. With it came a new era of human connection in an internet-based world.

Often called “the grandfather of the sharing economy,” Casey’s work on Couchsurfing fundamentally altered the way hundreds of millions of people build relationships across geography and culture. For the very first time, Casey managed to figure out a way to turn the internet from a place of suspicion and fear, to one where we now trust virtual strangers — as evidenced by our willingness to jump into an Uber or rent out our place on Airbnb.

Now, on the 20-year anniversary of Couchsurfing’s birth, Casey is revealing his latest social technology: “Ego Hacking, a neuroscience-based method that relies on a robust scientific body of knowledge, generates increased cooperation and collaboration at scale. Ego hacking involves using specific communication patterns to activate people’s most positive qualities, so they can cooperate effectively with others and build big things together.

This riveting book — part travelogue, part Silicon Valley success story, part pop-psychology bestseller —  charts Casey’s journey a from shy, small-town boy in Maine to emergent leader of a 20 million-person global movement. The story of Casey’s trials and tribulations engages the reader with both the monumental rise and crushing fall of Casey’s tenure at Couchsurfing. Through these vignettes, readers discover the scenarios through which Casey developed ego hacking’s game-changing communication tools.

Full of quotable insights and easy-to-remember frameworks, and having already been vetted by thousands through Casey’s keynote speeches and live focus groups across the world, Ego Hacking is poised to be the ultimate breakout personal development framework in the era of complexity and uncertainty.

Casey has already built one household name — “Couchsurfing” was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2008 — and his new viral movement promises to do the same with “Ego Hacking.” The book emphasizes simple tools that naturally inspire readers to share the framework with others, and lays out a process for starting an “Ego Hacking Group” in their community.  Ego Hacking demonstrates how meaningful ripple effects don't have to start in high leadership positions and with enormous resources; it is created subtly and intentionally by each and every one of us, and that power by itself is priceless.

Outline

Each chapter will open with stories from Casey's life experiences, which then segue into the central theme of the chapter. They close with broader lessons and concepts that can be applied to reader's lives directly.

Introduction: Question Everything 

Chapter One: What Is Wealth

Chapter Two: What Is Freedom

Chapter Three: What Is Learning

Chapter Four: What Is Love

Chapter Five: What Is Escape

Chapter Six: What Is Travel

Chapter Seven: What Is an MVP

Chapter Eight: What Is Execution 

Chapter Nine: What Is Growth

Chapter Ten: What Is Community 

Chapter Eleven: What Is Resiliency 

Chapter Twelve: What Is an Entrepreneur 

Conclusion: What Is the Future

Audience

Casey Fenton is backed by his numerous businesses and communities of entrepreneurs and travelers, including Couchsurfing.com, Mastly and Wonder. His ventures revolve around his vigorous lifestyle and attract the same breed of independent movers. These will be the main medium through which to obtain pre-orders.

  1. Core audience of young and aspiring entrepreneurs, particularly those who are feeling stuck, etc., trying to figure out what path to take in life.
  2. Secondary audience of existing Couchsurfing community (15 million registered users worldwide)

In his exciting publishing debut, Casey Fenton speaks to a diverse audience of fellow life-travelers, freaks and adventurers, and the next generation of social entrepreneurs. His audience is poised to build a new world, through the latest technologies and innovations, but is drawn, like the author, toward the road less taken. Like Casey, it's for everyone who has a curiosity about the world and wants to understand themselves better in relation to it.

In the next 20 years, the rise of remote workers will drastically affect the world, according to DNX Global. With job security at an all time low and starting a business via the internet is a low-barrier, more and more people are leaving their 9-5s – and their home countries – to explore the world from the laptop. 

  • 1 billion digital nomads are projected to populate the earth by 2035
  • 40% of the people will be married by 2035
  • 50% drop in price of international airline tickets since 1985, and 75% drop by 2035
  • 73% of young adults value “experiences” over material possessions.
  • 46% of the Millennial generation are interested in starting a business.

As these statistics show, young entrepreneurs and digital nomads are trying to find a different kind of life. They are marrying less and dating more, driving less and traveling more, buying less and renting more.

This is driven by a desire to experience more, explore more, and build a lifestyle of freedom - all of which takes unconventional thinking to accomplish. The educational systems of today cater to traditional companies of the past. And today's generations are not prepared for the shifting economy, which certainly allows for a more adventurous lifestyle but demands flexibility. This book is a necessity for those building our future.

As founder of Couchsurfing.com, Casey is backed by the couch surfing community of 15 million+ subscribers and users (1 million+ monthly active users). This book is, in part, for this audience directly, and will be a medium to obtain preorders.

Larger orders and corporate sponsors will come from pre-existing relationships and new ventures. These will also act as distribution points for the book during preorders.

Speaking engagements will boost awareness and preorders for the book. Casey is often invited to speak about his story and share his message about building the life you want to live in, and will actively pursue an increasing number of these speaking opportunities, including keynotes.

We believe that authors should have access to high-quality, elegant publishing services and full-scale in-store distribution without having to give up their publishing rights or control over the timing and execution of their book.

That's where we come in. Wordsmiths, idea sculptors, and enthusiastic cheerleaders for the human race, we make a difference in the world by helping authors to make their difference in the world. We publish primarily practical nonfiction in the following categories: Business and Tech, Health and wellness, Parenting and Relationships, Personal Development, and Inspirational Memoir.

1106 Design, LLC logo 1106 Design, LLC

500 copies • Completed manuscript.
1106 Design provides book design, production, and publishing services for independent authors who seek all the quality of traditional publishing without forfeiting their rights and royalties in return. 1106 Design provides traditional publisher quality with one-stop, end-to-end services from copyediting to worldwide distribution. We operate just like a publisher with one difference: YOU maintain complete control of your book, your schedule, and most importantly, your payments.

In our model, distribution accounts are set up in your name. When a book is sold, the retailer takes a cut, the printing cost is deducted, and the balance is deposited directly into your bank account, never ours first. The difference can amount to several more dollars per book in net revenue to you. Our most popular package for non-fiction books, 50,000 words and under, including copyediting, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and distribution set up in your name is just $7,353. Fiction titles are slightly lower, $6,488.

Gladiator Publishing Company logo Gladiator Publishing Company

Gladiator Publishing Co. has held a reputation in the Literary Industry for nearly 100 Years as a Writer-Loyal company. Nearly 100-years later, Gladiator Publishing Company still maintains that strong characteristic. We place our Authors publications first and foremost. You may hear many other "Publishing entities" state that they are "the first" to do this or the "originator/pioneer" of that. If everyone is using the same marketing, promotional, and advertising pipelines what makes them so original?

As the proud recipients of six-awards in 2018 for our innovative marketing techniques, media outreach, extremely low budget compared to the Global Industry Standard (72-83% cheaper), and an Author-inclusive style, it is no wonder we are the #1 Requested Publishing Service on the East Coast. We are staffed with industry-specific professionals that are dedicated to market and brand development.

Full Editing Services (substantive, copy, formatting, proofreading, story flow, line) are INCLUDED in the price. No hidden fees, no extra cost for something that Publishing Services should be more than happy to provide to benefit the manuscripts success. The industry has turned toward greed and away from literature. It's sick and inappropriate, it's ok to agree, they know it too.

Maintain 100% of your royalties in all formats.
Maintain 100% of your Copyrights, Intellectual Property, and Creative Control.

You be the Author and we'll be the Publisher.

Project Bestseller logo Project Bestseller

Bestsellers are great. Long-term sellers are even better. We'll help you do both.

Project Bestseller is about creating bestsellers. More importantly, it’s about building author platforms and long-term success. We’re building books that sell well over time, generate income for their authors, and create a lasting impact for their readers.

How? The surface answer to this question is:
- crafting each book for maximum appeal to readers
- editing, design, and production with quality to match or exceed traditional publishers
- building an author platform to build loyalty and reach
- optimizing marketing elements such as keywords, categories, and sales copy
- leveraging promotion and advertising to generate sales at a profit

A deeper answer is: with strategy, curiosity, and intense passion.

Why? We believe good books should sell. If you're like most of our clients, you have a big vision for your book. It represents you. It says something about who you are. Now you’re ready for it to start touching lives.

You can probably think of half a dozen books that have become part of the grain of your life, because they gave you exactly what you needed at the time—whether it was a feeling, an experience, a different perspective, or just the information you needed to unlock your next possibility.

Now it's your turn. We can help you impact your readers with your book. It's what we do.

We've been helping authors finish and publish their books since 2012. Services include: ghostwriting, editing, cover design, book design, formatting, publishing guidance, launch planning, marketing.
