Resource of the Week: Top 5 Blunders Business Authors Make (& How to Avoid Them)

2 Oct

Your Resource of the Week is actually a 2-for-1.  I began writing about the title resource and had to include info about the guy who referred me.  Enough chit-chat, let’s get down to business…

In 2006, I set out to write a book.  My reason…uh…because…I wanted to write a book???  So I met with a local publishing company to see how much it would cost to self-publish this book that I dreamed of writing.  After meeting with Nina Wells of Kingdom Publishing, I roared off to start writing.  Before long, I realized that writing and promoting a book takes a lot more effort than I originally anticipated.

Tons of aspiring authors start with this goal in mind – to write a book about a subject they have a passion for.  This is what most aspiring authors fail to realize. If you write a book with yourself in mind, your book becomes a product of your dream.  If you write a book with your market and your mission in mind, then the book will promote your business.

Last week, I received an email from Tom Buford about a young lady named Donna Kozik, who is hosting an event for aspiring authors to write their books in a weekend.  At first, I was a little leery of this idea.  On second thought, I remembered that I was a bit leery of Tom’s philosophy called Charge What You Deserve.  But after implementing the information in his free reports, my business income did increase by about 40% within one month.  So I figured if I made that much money with Tom’s free report, it would be worth it to at least visit Donna’s website.

So, I went to Donna’s site, MyBigBusinessCard.com, to check out her philosophies.  She has a free report called The Top 5 Blunders Business Authors Make (& How to Avoid Them). 

What it took me 2 and a half years to learn, Donna Kozik sums up in this free report.

    Thank you for bringing my special report to the attention of others.

    Yes, writing and publishing the wrong book can waste so much time and money (like I did) that I wanted to make it my personal mission to stop others before they made the same mistake.

    And then I wanted to show people how to “write the right” book and use it as their Big Business Card and that’s how “Write a Book in a Weekend” came about.

    In addition to my special report, I’ve started a group on Facebook — the “Write a Book in a Weekend Club.” Feel free to swing by and see what we’re all about. (I give a two minute summary in the video where I’m wearing the red top.)

    Hope to connect more…

    You know, I have to tell you, I really enjoy this blog and the insight from everyone who participates. I find it to be refreshing and very informative. I wish there were more blogs like it. Anyway, I felt it was about time I posted, Ive spent most of my time here just lurking and reading, but today for some reason I just felt compelled to say this.
