The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 9/21/18

Sep 21, 2018 | 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 why publishing a book can help your business.

From Michele DeFilippo: Publishing a Business Book – Self-publishing for Professionals

“I’m sure I’m not alone in my experience, which is why if you are in business of any kind or have reached a pinnacle in your profession, if you’re a blogger or want to become a thought leader in your industry, if your accumulated knowledge can enlighten others or help people solve a problem, it’s time to write a book. Because a business book is the ultimate promotional tool; it’s better than your business card.”

Here’s a link to my recent post titled “Writing a Book: 5 Things that Make it Harder.”
