Dear Hard-Working Business Owner,
Writing a book is a huge “bucket list” task.
You know it will take a lot of time and effort to create something good.
Something worth your reader’s time and the $14.99+ you’ll charge for the paperback version.
You know that you have the expertise to write a book, but every time you think about writing it, you’re plagued with doubt and anxiety.
Do I know enough to fill a book?
Will my information be interesting to the reader?
What will be the reaction of my clients, customers, friends, family, and competitors?
Why should I write a book when the marketplace is already filled with other experts in my field?
Will this book make a difference in anyone’s life?
Those are just a few of the most common questions I’ve received from those who are thinking about writing a book. I’m sure you could add a few more.
Here’s the truth: There is no marketing tactic or strategy that can make as big of an impact on your business as writing and publishing a book.
Successful marketing requires good content marketing.
Content marketing can be blog posts, white papers, emails, video content, audio content, podcasts, articles, eBooks, quizzes, interviews, and more.
The problem is that everyone else is creating content.
Each day, millions of words are communicated through all of the above. There is pressure on all marketers to continue the never-ending task of feeding the “content beast.”
And now that artificial intelligence (A.I.) is on the scene—in the form of ChatGPT—it’s easier than ever to crank out a bunch of words.
But a book is different. I know this because I wrote and published a book.
My Book Story
Ever since I was a little girl, books have been my faithful companions. From the time I learned to “see Spot run,” I’ve had a life-long love affair with good stories and knowledge.
My parents called our local library my second home. And it was true. During the summer, I would pedal my candy-apple red Huffy bike four miles one-way to the College Hill Library on North Bend Road in Cincinnati.
As I grew older, I saw books as my teachers. I might not have had the opportunity to sit in an auditorium listening to Dale Carnegie, but I could certainly learn from his wisdom found in his classic book, How to Win Friends and Influence People.
It astounded me that people could write a book and the impact could last years… decades. Even centuries!
I knew that someday, I wanted to write a book. I didn’t know what it would be about, but I believed with all my heart that I “had a book inside of me.”
I was right. And if you’re reading this, I believe you do, too.
When you think about how many business books are available, it’s easy to think yours won’t make a dent compared to the dozens that already exist. You may wonder what you can say that hasn’t been said already.
Here’s an earth-shattering truth: your book won’t change your readers as much as it will change you.
Do You Want to Be an Author?
In 2021, I decided I wanted to help others achieve their dream of writing a book. So, I created an 8-week guided writing program called “BOOK It!”
I remember how it felt when I sent a copy of my own book to family and friends. I was proud of my achievement. I knew I had done something that no one in my family or circle of friends had done.
And I want you to experience that very same thrill, knowing that you did it. YOU accomplished something others have not. You'll be walking down the street with your head held high as you say to yourself, "Yes. I am a published author!"
I created the "BOOK It!" Program for:
The person who wants to get started on writing a business book, but not sure where to begin
The person who wants to complete a rough first draft in weeks, not months
- The person who is ready to let their brilliance SHINE
So, what will it involve? Keep reading.
