On several occasions, as a team that has seen several clients pass through our hands-on journey to become published authors, we have encountered prospects asking us this question, why should I write? And we have always answered that everyone should write.
At the end of the day when you leave this engaging earth, what will you be remembered for, and what will you leave behind for the forthcoming generations?
Everybody has a story to share and each of them can either be inspiring or a learning experience. I would rather ask, what will I lose when I do not write a book? this will help you understand my perspective.
I strongly believe that there is a book in all us’ – but the question is when will you get this book out? life is a journey in which you learn something daily worth documenting. The acquired knowledge and experience we all have can help others, pass through where we struggled swiftly.
