Writing a book to share your message, experiences, and knowledge with the world can be an amazing journey and a great asset for your business! Some studies claim it’s the best way for an expert to prove her authority in a niche. But how do you find the right idea to write about? How do you turn that idea into a book people will resonate with and want to buy?
Thanks to Carrie Green of the Female Entrepreneur Association, I was able to answer this question and more. Carrie invited me as her guest expert for a 10 Minute Masterclass interview, during which I shared “3 Amazing Tips to Get Started Writing A Book.” During the brief but super detailed conversation we covered:
- choosing the right idea for your book (instead of trying to cover every topic)
- how to take your business to the next step and grow your audience
- the benefits of checking out your competition
- and a lot more!
As per her routine, Carrie and I also issued a challenge to listeners to help them jumpstart their book projects: I encouraged the audience members to go out and investigate what other books are competing against theirs and analyze them for strengths, weaknesses, audience insights, and ideas that can help them improve upon their own book concepts.
Dozens of people chimed in with comments and more advice and thoughts, which was awesome because I love a good ongoing conversation. It was also great to hear what kind of book projects people are working on and what struggles they’ve overcome. It’s so important to share your experiences with your fellow authors and entrepreneurs so we can all learn from one another.
Do check out the full interview, which is very short and chock-full of insights and advice. You can view the complete video in their archives and join in the conversation via Facebook!
