Today our expert guest is Honoree Corder, an “authorpreneur” who coaches business professionals, writers, and aspiring non-fiction authors who want to publish their books to bestseller status, create a platform, and develop multiple streams of income. But really, that doesn’t even scratch the surface of everything she does, and her badassery is legendary!
Honoree is, incredibly, the author of over 50 books, including You Must Write a Book, the Prosperous Writer series, and most recently, Write, Publish, and Market Like a Boss: The Complete Series. She is also previous guest Hal Elrod’s partner in the Miracle Morning book series.
So how does writing a book help someone develop multiple streams of income?
First, of course, book sales can generate money, if you write it in a way that it is readable, it adds value, you publish it professionally, and you market it until you die.
But after that, a book can birth multiple streams of income: speaking, consulting, coaching, group coaching, events, and anything else you can do to repurpose the content of your book.
The 5 people that should be on your book business bench:
Self-Publishing VS Traditional Publishing
The traditional publishing route isn’t for everyone. It’s full of gatekeepers, and frankly you’re not actually likely to make very much money – Honoree is working with a six-time New York Times bestseller who teaches writing classes to pay her bills.
But when you self-publish, you have complete control. You get to choose what to write about, when to publish it, where to distribute it, and for how much.
The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway
“You have to have a belief in yourself in order to make anything happen. You can want something, you can wish for something, but if you don’t believe that you can have it or that you deserve it, then you won’t actually go for it. You can achieve anything that you believe you deserve to achieve, and you should believe that you deserve anything you want.”
