Want to become an author? Eager to promote your professional expertise and position yourself as a published leader? Or do you have clients whose message might be best communicated in book form?
If you have an idea for a book to share your professional insights, publishing has never been easier—“all” you have to do is write it.
We’ll talk about business and technological developments that have made publishing more accessible and have made self-publishing easy, professional, and inexpensive. Print-on-demand books mean we can now publish for an audience of one, a hundred, or a million. This could be how you can find a publishing niche for you or your clients with a minimum of expense and a maximum pay-off.
