I tell people I’m a writer and – most of the time – their immediate reaction is, “Wow. Someday I want to write a book.” They have a glamorized version of what it means to actually be a writer. Here’s a secret for your eyes only: you write.
Well, okay, maybe not quite. Yes, to earn the title of “writer,” one must actually write. But it takes a wee bit more than that. (And, yes, sometimes there is a game or two of solitaire. Don’t judge.) That being said, you ought to be working your way to a book.
- As an entrepreneur, having a well-written and published book establishes you immediately as an expert in your field.
- Your book leads to other types of engagement, like speaking gigs.
- Imagine a potential client’s face when they ask for your business card but you offer instead a copy of your book.
- Writing a book builds your confidence, establishing you as an expert in your own eyes.
The last reason is probably the most important. It opens you to possibilities, which raises your vibration and makes you more attractive to your ideal clients.
