Jo Bottrill worked for Nature, Taylor & Francis and Cambridge University Press before setting up Out of House Publishing over 11 years ago to help academic and educational publishers to develop, edit and produce their content.

In this episode, we talk about how Jo grew his business from freelancing to being a global partner for major publishers and how he dealt with the challenges that that change in scale brought. And also about how building trust is crucial for success - both between you and your clients and suppliers, and within your business.

Jo recommends The E-Myth by Michael Gerber.
