I’m sure that someone has said to you, “You ought to write a book.”
Am I right?
Maybe you pooh-poohed the idea because, well, writing sucks the life out of you, and it takes too much time, and publishing is a shark tank, and writing is for other people.
Yes, there are people who people who find pleasure in the flow of words that comes before having anything to say. That’s fine. I’m one of them and have been since I decided to be a writer in third grade. But I also know that it’s not only “writers” who have some valuable, compelling, life-transforming message to impart.
That includes you.
Can you imagine what it would mean to your professional practice to have authored a book?
- The respect and esteem you would receive from clients, prospects, and colleagues?
- The opportunities to reach wider audiences through speaking and teaching?
- How easy it is to share a referral when your clients can just hand someone a book?
What if the barriers were down? If you could complete the book in a few hours instead of months and be sure of having a professionally produced book that you will be proud to share? Would it make a difference?
Have you thought about writing a book?
Would you like to think again?
