The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 8/2/19

Aug 2, 2019 | Reading Lists

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Even though writing and storytelling and blogging and SEO aren’t your day job, you want to do them better.

You need to get the most value you can from your reading time. That’s why every week I pick the one post from the web’s multitudes that will help you get better. This week I’m pointing you to a post on better business writing. Thanks to my friends at Smartbrief on Leadership for pointing me to his post.

“These tips are intended to make an immediate impact on how you communicate, starting with your next email. They are designed for people who are already overloaded with tasks. If you follow these basic guidelines, you will find that people understand what you mean and what you want to do, and they will even communicate more effectively with you.”

Here’s a link to my recent post titled: “Writing a Book: Master the Mundane.”
