Have you thought about writing a book to put you and your business on the map?
Todays episode is about exactly that, writing a book. Not just any book but a book to share your thoughts and ideas with the world. When I talk to business owners and creatives, I hear them them say, “I really should write a book about this” or “I started a book and someday I will finish it between helping clients”.
The problem is that we are entrepreneurs and creatives and not really book writers. We are busy coming up with big ideas and new projects and its really hard to see how we can find time to write that book.
