Writing Prompts to Write and Plan a Brilliant Business Book

What’s the best way to write a business book?

Is it to pull up a chair, turn on your computer, and wait for inspiration?

Is it to write the first thing that comes to mind, and hope the book will take shape – eventually?

If you’ve answered ‘nope’ to both of those questions, you’re absolutely right! I’m sure you’ll agree writing a book requires careful planning and preparation.

But why write a business book anyway?

Put simply, it can elevate your business to new giddy heights.

It will establish you as THE expert in your field, attract media attention, launch complementary revenue streams, and so much more. It’s too good a marketing tool to ignore.

But here’s the challenge.

By the time a client has approached me to help them write or edit their business book, they will have spent months if not years, feeling frustrated and overwhelmed.

Their frustration is rarely because they don’t know what to write. It’s usually because they don’t know how or where to start.

Does that sound like you?

If it does, you’ll enjoy using my new journal and workbook, designed especially for coaches, consultants, business owners and entrepreneurs.

At last, a tried and tested formula to carefully plan and write a brilliant business book.

There are plenty of books on the market which explain how to write a business book. My journal SHOWS you how, by walking you through the process step-by-step.

I’ve created prompts to walk you through:

  • how to define your book marketing goals (start with the end in mind);
  • how to research what to write about;
  • how to define and write for your target reader;
  • how to structure your business book (with examples of six common types);
  • how to create a great title;
  • how to write a compelling introduction and conclusion that leaves your reader wanting more;

PLUS I’ve included plenty of motivational quotes to spur you on, tips on how to independently publish, seek a publishing contract, and much more.

As a developmental editor, ghostwriter, and writing coach, I’ve helped scores of clients successfully write and publish books as best-sellers in their genre. In this journal and workbook, I share my method for structuring an outline to help you as a busy business owner write with ease.

This 6 x 9 in (15.24 x 22.86 cm) college-ruled, journal and workbook is the perfect size to fit in your bag, so you can work through the exercises and jot down notes while on the go.

If you’ve always wanted to write a book to promote your business but never got round to doing so, today’s a perfect day to start.

What will you write about? I’d love to know.
