What comes to your mind when you hear the word- A Writer? A person who writes, a person who wrote the Novel you read last time or the night Owl who can write anything!
Today writing is far more than any stereotype you might be thinking of. Today writers are the Entrepreneurs. We shall give examples of the people who chose writing as a career and became so successful that today their names are on the list of Most influential person.
Before you think anything else, I want you to understand following two things-
- How technology and Entrepreneurship have made books more powerful than ever before.
- How you can “Profit” from this unique Opportunity.
Now, right now, is the best time to start writing, and you’ll find WHY ahead in this article. Today writing and Publishing is not limited merely to the Paper and Pen, like the Traditional writing and Publishing. Today, technology has given us many more choices.
Overview of Options, we have today:
Traditional publishing is the way in which the author sells publication rights to a publishing house and receives an advance and possibly royalty payments in return.
When authors self-publish, they take on the full burden of developing their book, from writing and editing to cover design and distribution. They may choose to seek help with some aspects of the process, but ultimately they are overseeing everything.
An electronic book is a book publication made available in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on the flat-panel display of computers or other electronic devices.
This is the most convenient and easy way for writers to publish their books online. All you have to do is to have good knowledge of what you want to write. You put your e-book on platforms like Amazon Kindle and immediately your book is available to the millions of Amazon users.
Blogging is a way of publishing in which you create a platform of your own on World Wide Web (WWW) in the form of websites. This is very easy. All you have to do is to get a basic knowledge of blogging, which is easily available on the Internet or you can hire an expert for setting your blog (One-time job).
Writing is the new PhD
– says the Author of a Best-selling Book Authorpreneur.
By definition, an entrepreneur can adapt and rise in the rapidly changing environment. So, familiarizing yourself with those behaviours is the smartest strategy for long-term success, whether you plan to freelance, start your own business or work for a bigger organization.
Everyone should develop entrepreneurial skills. Advanced problem-solving, decision-making and content-creation will be the most valuable disciplines in the workplace of tomorrow.
As logic-based tasks became largely software operated, companies are seeking people to excel in the creative and complex domains. They are valuing entrepreneurs over all other workers.
Companies like google and Facebook use this strategy to bring teams of 1-10 people on board, paying millions of dollars to acquire new employees with entrepreneurial backgrounds.
To bring this all into focus, you need to realize that – writing a book happens to be one of the best ways to develop entrepreneurial skills. By writing and publishing a book, you’re experiencing entrepreneurship in two ways-
- Self-Learning is one of the most basic principles of being an Entrepreneur.
- By writing and Publishing a book, you are developing your own Entrepreneurial skills, while simultaneously establishing yourself as an expert in whatever you are writing about.
The Act of writing, publishing and marketing your book is unarguably the best training program for excelling in the Entrepreneurial Economy.
Self-Publishing is the new Business Card
-Says, James Altucher, 1st self-published best-selling author (Book- Choose Yourself).
Who Can Write a Book/E-book/Blog?
Simply today, Writing books in no longer for the authors. it is for anyone who wants to gain upward mobility and It is for anyone who has something worth saying or teaching. Power is rapidly shifting from corporations to individuals, but it won’t be handed to you on a silver platter. you have to seize it.
Again, If you think your life is screwed, every day you go to your office, sit in the cubicle and shuffle papers until it’s time to head home and you think this is not what you want to do- Writing can be a great escape you may want to think of.
