    Have you 'resolved' to write a book in 2014? T Allen Hanes, Best Selling Author Explains How it Can Do Wonders for Your business


    Have you ever thought about publishing a book? If you’re a business owner, publishing a book can do wonders for your business. It can:


    • Brand your business
    • Boost your credibility and authority
    • Provide value to your audience
    • Increase profits
    • Broaden your reach
    • And much more!


    Your book can also serve as material for future content, including social media posts, blog content, articles, and emails. If you’ve ever thought about writing a book, the best way to approach it is the same way you’d approach any business building initiative. You’d set a goal, create a plan, build a team and get to work.


    Despite rumors to the contrary, writing a book is no different. In fact, you can write a book in 30 days.


    Why This Is Possible – The 30 Day Deadline Isn't As Extreme As It Sounds, explains T. Allen Hanes Best Selling Author of Houston Texas.


    It takes years to write a book, right?


    Well the truth is that it can take years to write a book.


    However, that time frame is generally reserved for people who are writing their magnum opus or life story.


    It doesn’t apply to people who are writing a business or non-fiction book. So the myth that it must take years to write a great book just doesn’t apply.


    But it still takes a long time, right?


    The time it takes to write a book is entirely up to you. If you’re writing a book on a subject that you know nothing about, say Quantum Physics, then it could take several months or maybe even years to complete. You’d have a lot of research and learning to do before you could sit down and write.


    Here’s the thing…


    You’re already an expert on your business topic. You know what you’re talking about. You’ve written an abundance of content on the topic and you’re in touch with your audience. That’s all you need to be able to write a book for your business.


    We’re going to break it down in a bit but for now think about how many blog posts you publish each week and how much you already write. If you wrote two blog posts a day for a month, and pulled them all into one file you’d have between 30,000 and 40,000 words. That’s a book!


    And writing a book is much easier than writing 50-60 blog posts.


    If you’re still scratching your head and wondering how on earth you could start and finish an entire book in a month, take a look at the following questions and answer them for yourself.


    • Are you an authority on a subject?
    • Do you possess a skill or information that others wish to learn?
    • Do you have specialized knowledge or unique experience?
    • Have you created a process or system that can help others?
    • Do you have a desire to tell a story, share information or teach others?
    • Can you talk about your subject?
    • Do you already have an abundance of information published on your topic (i.e., video posts, blog posts, interviews etc…?)


    That last point is an important one. You probably already have much of the material you need to write your book. In fact, you’ve already written it. The key now is to create a cohesive and compelling theme and to pull it all together.


    This report is designed to help you not only realize that you MUST write a book for your business but also to show you how you CAN write it in a month. You’ll create a blueprint for book writing and you can use it over and over again – by the end of next year you may be a multi-published author. Sounds pretty good, right?
