As #authors...or aspiring authors, we have such brilliance in our dreams to make a difference in this big world of ours.
Authors and business owners are in business, not just to make a living. Our purpose is to impact the world we live in. Often non fiction writers have one of three goals:
- To leave a legacy
- To build our existing businesses
- To reinvent ourselves and create a brand new business that in in harmony with who we are and can showcase our wisdom and expertise.
The goal of this exercise is to create a business in harmony with the lifestyle you desire, using your knowledge, expertise and professional experience.
