5 Reasons to Write Your Book NOW!

What can a book do for your business? 

You've worked hard to build your brand and become an expert in your field - but are you reaching everyone who could benefit from your knowledge? A well-written, attention-grabbing book can help you increase your credibility, attract a wider (even global) audience, and serve as a "calling card" for media outlets.

Maybe you've had a book idea simmering within you for years - or maybe your concept hit you like a lightning bolt just last week. Either way, it's time to take inspired action and bring your book into being!

Here are five reasons why NOW is a great time to write your book: 

  • A book will up-level your expert status. Want to expand your presence on the speaking circuit? Establish credibility with media outlets? A book lends authority because it’s a tangible accomplishment.
  • A book is a robust compilation of talking points. A well-written book can serve as the basis for dozens of products for your business. Video courses, audio classes, seminars, workshops … you can create any number of offshoots from your book material. Also, key points in your book can be reworked as “teaser” blog posts, free gifts for your web site, and other marketing materials, or expanded into independent e-books.
  • Procrastination is an antidote to success. Even writing a page (or less) per day will get you closer to your goal of being an author than doing nothing at all.
  • There are more publishing options than ever before. In addition to traditional publishers, there are a number of great self-publishing and hybrid publishing companies who can help you get your book out into the world (like Inspired Living Publishing, for whom I've been the chief editor since 2009). 
  • You don’t have to do it alone! Working with the right editor, co-author, or ghostwriter can make the process of creating a book easier and faster.
