3 Reasons Successful People Don’t Write Books (and How To Change That)
Writing a book has probably been on your to-do list for far too long. It’s your “maybe someday,” your “pipe dream,” your “after I finish X, Y, and Z.” You’ve accomplished a lot in your lifetime, but you just can’t seem to get a book out the door.
So why hasn’t it happened? It’s surely not that you aren’t capable. In fact, you’re probably a highly capable individual.
But even the most successful people can’t do everything at once, and you might be running into following roadblocks...
1. YOU HAVE A LOT OF WISDOM, BUT YOU’RE NOT A WRITER—AND YOU DON’T HAVE THE TIME TO BECOME ONE.
You could talk for hours about your passions and expertise, but getting it all down on paper is another story. You’re a speaker, a story-teller, an idea person, but you’re nervous you don’t have what it takes to become an author. In addition to writing being hard work, it’s time consuming. You simply don’t have an extra year to dedicate 100% of your time to writing.
2. YOU’RE IN HIGH DEMAND—SO YOU BARELY HAVE THE ENERGY FOR YOUR EXISTING RESPONSIBILITIES.
Living in today’s busy world, chances are you already have too much on your plate. Between work, family, and everything in between, you’re already juggling a lot. By the time your head hits the pillow at the end of the day, you’re exhausted. Now add to that writing and editing 50,000 words? It might seem impossible. You’re stressed out enough as it is.
3. YOU’RE FOCUSED—AND BREAKING INTO THE PUBLISHING INDUSTRY IS INTIMIDATING.
Turning your ideas into a published book is a lot of work. There’s brainstorming, outlining, writing, editing (and editing some more), formatting, designing, publishing, marketing...the list goes on. And chances are, at least one of those steps is outside your realm. And taking the focus off of your day-to-day responsibilities in order to figure out the publishing industry just doesn’t make sense.
So how do you push past it all and share your knowledge with the world? How do you find enough time to write your book, and get it to the point where you’re proud to call it yours?
Here’s what you do: you focus on providing the best advice, information, and experience, and you let someone else do the rest.
You come up with a topic, develop your table of contents, test your ideas, speak your book into a recorder, and have it transcribed. Then you hire a ghostwriter to make it read like a real book (and save yourself from doing the actual writing). After that, you hire someone to design the cover, get it published, and put together a marketing plan.
But if the thought of all of this overwhelms you and you’re looking for a team of professionals to come around you and handle getting your book written and published, then hybrid ghostwriting and publishing is probably the right path for you.
How does it work?
Instead of just handing some ideas over to a ghostwriter, a team of professionals comes around you to draw out your book contents, publish your book, and get it into the hands of those who need it most.
