With Scribe, you don’t have to write your book alone
Most of you know that I recently published The Solopreneur’s Money Manifesto, and if you listened to episode 71 you heard about my amazing experience with my ghostwriter. Today, I want to share more about the fantastic experience that I had with Scribe so that you can understand how writing a book can not only be an amazing accomplishment but a boon for your business.
When I first got the urge to write a book, I thought it was a great idea but I didn’t have the time. Then, when Covid came along, all of the sudden I had the time, but I quickly realized that I knew nothing about writing a book. Instead of sitting there scratching my head, I enlisted help. That help came in the form of Scribe Media.
The Scribe team will help you focus on your goal
Scribe is a one-stop-shop for people that have a book in them but don’t have the time or experience to get it out. Scribe provides a team of experts to bring your book to fruition–from unlocking your story to writing to publishing to launching and marketing.
Writing a book means sharing your experience with others which begins with telling your story to a Scribe ghostwriter by answering loads of questions.
The Scribe team is not crafting the story you are, so the story is all yours. They provide inspiring writing and storytelling, beautiful design, and expert publishing.
Before teasing out your story you need to think about the outcomes you are looking for. Do you want to sell tons of copies? Drive leads to your brand or business? When you start with your why you’ll be able to stay on target and focus on your goal.
Don’t let imposter syndrome stop you from telling your story
Many people feel a bit of trepidation about sharing their story with the world. This fear is natural and takes time to overcome. Imposter syndrome can also hold you back, but if you are willing to relate your expertise you can help many people. The team at Scribe can help you work through your imposter syndrome to craft your amazing story.
If you have been thinking about writing a book but are not sure that your ideas are worth sharing consider the problem that you are trying to solve. Do you have a solution for a distinct group of people? If you do, you may have a book in you.
A book provides a long term ROI
A book is a long-term business tool that will keep bearing fruit for years to come. After the book launch, the initial bang of attention fades after the first few months, but it builds into a snowball for years down the road. A book is a timeless tool that you can continue to use to market your business, get keynotes, podcasts, Ted Talks, and more. Think about where you want to be in 2-3 years. Do you think a book will help you get there? If so, check out Scribe to get started.
