For the A to Z Challenge, I’m posting promo and other tips for writers, along with a daily photo.(All photos taken by me.)
Now, that may seem like an odd topic for a writer. Entrepreneur? Business owner?
Well, if you’re going to make any money as a writer or author, you need to start thinking like a business owner.
Knowledge - There’s two things that kill new businesses in the first five years, and one is a lack of knowledge. Study the industry. Learn and understand all aspects of publishing before you embark on the journey.
Capital - This is the other thing that kills new businesses. A lack of capital. Big publishers pour tens of thousands of dollars in the creation and promotion of a book. I doubt your investment will be that large, but no matter which path you choose, you will need capital. Develop a business plan and realize you are investing, not spending.
Time - It will take time! You’ll invest time into writing, editing, researching, promoting… all without pay. Owning a business means long hours. And if your author dreams are big enough, you WILL find the time.
Are you ready to open for business?
