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. Here are some recent blog posts and articles that might help.

From Pamela Wilson via CopyBlogger: How to Write Your Way to the Top of Your Industry
“I’m meeting my business goals with my writing. And more importantly, my writing has helped me reach thousands of people I’d otherwise have no contact with. I teach, share, and encourage them with my words.”

Becky Robinson is my go-to friend and expert for launching business books. Every week, she publishes a book launch tip on her blog. This week’s tip is “Create Bulk Buy Incentives.”
