Two On-going Exercises
Produce your own personal inventory. This inventory should be focused on the following:
1. What you know: focus on the attitudes, knowledge and skills
2. Experiences you've had
3. Training you have had
4. Destinations that you have been to
5. Titles that you have earned
Create a list of several hundred, even thousands, of descriptors. Note: you will have to keep pen and a pad of paper on you at all times as you will realize all the talents you do have!
Now create a list of "What You Are"
Record a description of yourself. For example, I am a woman, mother, wife, fitness buff, a lover of pizza, wings and Indian food, interesting, a resident of Long Island, have two degrees, play the piano, traveler, teacher, author and creator of websites to assist writers in reaching their goals and fulfilling their dreams!
Keep in mind, when deciding on your writing business, that you want to make sure of two items:
1. the market you are targeting has tremendous wants and desires and
2. the market has money to spend - in other words, it is hungry for your information.
Spend some time journaling for a couple of hours. Let it all hang out. Write as quickly as you can and get in touch with the real you.
Narrow business possibilities to two or three. You can do this by playing the devil's advocate with each of your ideas. Provide as many reasons as you can why you shouldn't go with an idea. Now check by completing a focused target market key word analysis on your top two or three ideas.
My best methods of creating a book and building an online business are three fold:
In doing the above, you will gain a much better grasp at the gaps that exist in the market place and you will gain a competitive advantage as you seek to fill this gap.
Put these exercises to work for you and enrich your life and your pocketbook. Writing for money is an within reach!
