5 Reasons to Finally Write Your Book

People have many different reasons for writing books.

For me, writing has mainly been about sharing my story. My first book started from me journaling my experiences with household management. When I shared my strategies with friends, they wanted to know how I managed tasks so efficiently. I was eager to share my skills with anyone who was interested, and this led me to write the book, Calculate Your Savings.

Many people have ideas and experiences that can inspire MILLIONS of people and transform lives.

As an entrepreneur or professional, you have gained invaluable knowledge and experience that can be captured in a book and shared with others in your industry.

Here are 5 Great Reasons to write your book:

  • Share Your Life Story/Transformation
  • Make Your Brand Stand Out
  • Reinforce Your Credibility
  • Train or Educate Clients
  • Generate Income

5 Things I Wish I Knew Before Self-Publishing My First Book

Writing and self-publishing a book teaches one many valuable lessons. I have learned and taught many of these lessons and I want to share what I’ve learned with you.

Here are 5 key lessons that I have learned since self-publishing my first book 6 years ago.

  1. Don’t Try To Fit Every Idea Into One Book. This is one pitfall that many aspiring authors easy fall into. Within every book idea, there are endless tangents, spinoffs and complementary ideas. Knowing when a particular book adequately and sufficiently achieves its goal is a very valuable skill. Alternatively, attempting to capture every detail and nuance of an idea in one book will lead to burnout and ultimately you will NEVER PUBLISH! Narrow your focus.
  2. Editing Is Worth Every Dime.  Having an experienced editor review your work before publishing is non-negotiable. The editing process is key to ensuring that your book will be coherent to your audience. Never skimp on this!
  3. Connect With Your Audience Before Publishing. Getting input from your potential audience is key to ensuring that your published work will be well received.
  4. Aim For Excellence NOT Perfection. Perfectionism is one of the greatest prohibitors to writing and publishing a book. We all want to put out our absolute best work. We want the perfect idea, perfect book title, perfect book cover, etc. I guide my clients to strive for excellence and NOT perfection (which is unachievable).
  5. Write Each Chapter With The Book’s Overall Goal In Mind. This ensures that your book’s main idea is maintained throughout the book, and keeps you focused.
