My Other Love: Teaching What I Know
As much as I love writing and I love gardening, another of my passions is in teaching others to do the things that I do. That’s why I write two blogs (see my other blog here) and why I wrote the book Write a Book and Ignite Your Business
How can you demonstrate best how much you know about your business? Write a book. How can you add a new income source to your business that augments what you are already doing? Write a book. How can you demonstrate to another person that you know your business better than the next guy? Write a book. I believe that writing a book is a great way to show the world what you know.
Why should you write a book? Writing a book will help you demonstrate your expertise and create a new income stream for your business. Today more than ever, you have no excuse for not getting that book out that will demonstrate that you are knowledgeable in your business.
What should you write about you ask? You can write about how to do an aspect of your business. Here are a few ideas. If you’re a mechanic, a plumber, or a carpenter, write about how to do simple repairs that the average person can do. If you’re an electrician or a mechanic write a book about what the average person can do if they are having problems and know whether you’re being cheated or not. If you’re a real estate agent, share why the average home buyer needs an agent and how to avoid shady real estate deals. If you started your business, write about what you faced in starting your business, the problems you had, and how you avoided them. You might even tell what you wish you had known before you started your business that would have saved you time and money in the long run. If you’re a writer, of course, you can write about your process, how you avoid writer’s block, how you found your agent, publisher or how you self-publish, or just about your publishing journey. There’s more about choosing a topic in Write a Book and Ignite Your Business.
Write a book to leave a legacy. I personally decided to write this book because I wanted it as part of the legacy that I am leaving my children. I wanted to encourage them to share what they are doing with others as I have shared what I am doing by writing this book.
I wanted to help others make the most of their livelihoods. Life is short and it should all be about making money. Life shouldn’t be all work and no play. It should be about enjoying the life that you create for yourself, and I believe that writing a book is one way to help you do that.
