It’s never been more important than in today’s crowded business environment to give yourself every competitive advantage possible. For many people this means you need to rise above the crowd and become a recognised expert and a leader in you field, but just how do you do that?
What will you do in 2011 that will reinforce who you are and to demonstrate the knowledge you possess? What will you do to help attract more interested clients in your direction? Will you commit to regular blog posts, submit articles to your trade or industry publications and conduct talks or seminars?
Here’s one idea to raise your profile and a very powerful one at that. How about getting that book written… the one you’ve always said you should write, but never got round to it?
Just think what it could mean to you and your business to be a published author? A leader in your field, an authority on your topic? And do you know what… it’s not half as tough as you might imagine, with the right help (no pun intended).
Writing a book is a great way to get your thoughts down on paper and share them with the world. You can assert your expertise and gain respect as a recognised expert in your field.
It could open so many doors for you. Let me tell you… it could make all the difference… and stand you head and shoulders above your competitors.
I made the commitment myself last year. I planned the outline for my book, who it was targeted at and mapped out the content. Just a few weeks later, I was a published author and my first book “How To Thrive Not Just Survive” was in print. The next one is on its way…
So stop just thinking about it. Thoughts alone won’t make it happen! If you want to see your book in print, you need to make it a priority, make a plan, and obtain some skillful guidance to help you write the best possible book!
