2. The Only Good Reason to Write a Book

You can’t possibly imagine how many people tried to steer me away from writing books over the years.

Back in the day, before self-publishing was really a thing, the line was “You can’t make any money writing books.”

Even my mentors told me to keep my day job.

But money wasn’t my only reason for writing, so I kept at it, and eventually found a way to make it work for me.

I kept writing because my reason for doing it was strong enough to get me past the naysayers and my own doubts.

Have people in your life discouraged you from becoming or author?

Or maybe people are always telling you that you should write a book, but you’re not sure if you want to.

The choice is ultimately yours, of course, but in my experience, there’s only one good reason to write a book.

You can write your book: to grow your business, to build a platform as a coach, speaker, or expert.

You can become an author to stretch your creative muscle or just to prove that you’ve got what it takes to get thousands of words on the page.

You can write a book to create an income stream or to get famous.

All those reasons are legitimate.

But there’s really only one good reason to write a book.

In this episode, you’ll find out the only good reason to spend weeks or months of your life writing your book.
