Buy the book, BE a Reader, and Jeff Goins will make you a Writer
There are plenty of resources that you can tap, if you want to become an influencer. This one is worth much-more than the sticker price of his book: You Are a Writer (So Start Acting Like One).
(Jeff and I worked together on a short pre-launch project for a well-known author and as a result I read this eBook.)
Profound simplicity. That’s what makes his rudimentary approach unique: it’s big enough to make a profound impact, but it’s small enough that you might actually follow through.
If you believe in destiny, perhaps you understand the work of a prophet, seer, or guru. These are the people who can see in you, the things that might not even be in you yet, and they can typically help you develop in the right direction. Jeff shares some of the secrets of his ascent to guru status, but he doesn’t hold back the ugly details of self-doubt, sacrifice, and commitment. He didn’t believe that he was a writer either, so the title shouldn’t prevent you from taking the first step. Writing for an audience of one, makes you a writer. Even if you are the one.
You’ll gain insights, inspiration, and the book includes examples of how to approach and engage the three types of people you’ll need to become remarkable: fans, friends, and patrons.
Practice in plain sight. Connect.
Relationships matter. Be generous.
Writing is work, so stop dreaming. Start writing.
