We’re living in a different world today. People are inundated with marketing messages. Over the course of a day, you might be bombarded with 3000-5000 marketing impulses from all around you in your environment. Add to that the constant notifications from social media channels on your mobile device, and you start to understand why people are faded out. If you’re trying to stand out in the midsts of all of that “noise” as a creative entrepreneur trying to make a living, you might have a tough time. It’s time to focus on what truly matters. It’s one of the reasons I created a growth hacking class.
But the real problem lies deeper. With all that information being out there, even the picture that we paint of ourselves, becomes a little vague. And that’s how others start to see you as well, you’re not really the clear personality that you really are. As a creative entrepreneur, you really need to stand out and have a clear picture of you: what you are, what you do, and what you have to offer.
If you’re familiar with building businesses at all, you know how fast the landscape can change. Trends, tools, and best practices often shift, grow, and become different over time. As a creative entrepreneur and author, doors have opened for me that otherwise would have remained close. A book, when done right, helps establish you as an authority in your field. It’s the premise of my book writing program Write a Book in a Week. I certainly don’t claim to know the full future of being an author—but what I do know is that it’s bright. From launch parties, to emails, to social media marketing, there are as many ways to make money from your book as there are business ideas in the world.
There are a lot of budding authors out there. You might be one of them. But there aren’t enough who are truly committed to the dream of making their book a reality. You’re doing great things already, and for me, writing a book is about giving back to your community. Everyone has a story inside of them that deserves to be heard, and can be of benefit to others when shared. Are you ready to get started?Write a Book in a Week
