Write a Book…Build Your Business Empire
By: JW Dicks & Nick Nanton
One of the most common goals people have in their life is the desire to write a book. Few people, however, understand that writing a book can be the keystone to other things they want in life as well, be it fame, fortune or just a great business. A book opens up those doors as realistic possibilities because a book should be the focal point for a business.
Over our career, between the two of us we have written books as launch vehicles for our law practice, Small Business Legal Kit, How to Start a Business in any State, 50 volume set How to Incorporate in any State; Financial and Investment Advisory firm, The Mutual Fund Investment Strategies, Financial Freedom, The 100 Best Investments for Retirement, The Florida Investor, Moonlight Investing; Real Estate Sales and development firm, How To Buy and Sell Real Estate for Financial Freedom; and our Branding and Marketing Agency, Celebrity Branding You. Some of these books have become bestsellers, some not. What they all did was help us position ourselves as the expert in that field, and they all served as a platform to build a business on. This is what you should be doing.
The sale of books themselves can make you money, but the vast number of authors, including us, have not found that to be the case (even though three of Jack’s books were published by McGraw Hill and Simon and Schuster, two of the most successful publishers in the business). Truly, it isn’t the publisher or the content that makes a book become viral and sell millions of copies. It is the combination of timing and message or as marketing legend Dan Kennedy would say, “Message to market match…at the exact right time.” No better example needs to be mentioned than the The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris.
My message to you is to write the book your heart compels you to, but concentrate on building a business behind the book, which will, in almost all cases, make more than even a blockbuster business book and create lasting value for you as the author/business person — the expert in your field.
