We all lose faith from time to time.
In our friends, our partners, our children, ourselves. In our governments and institutions, our spiritual figures or powers, our bodies.
And we especially lose faith in our jobs and businesses.
Not on the Docket Today: Losing Faith in My Business
I wasn’t planning to write about this when I got up today. I was planning to blog about self-publishing, in between killin’ it with the client work and talking to a few new prospects. It was supposed to be a good day.
Moving abroad with kids was easy!
… said no parent ever in the history of humankind.
Because moving with kids is not easy. Doing anything with kids is not easy. Bad grammar aside, kids just are. not. easy.
However, leading a nomadic (or, in our case, semi-nomadic) lifestyle is possible, especially if you put the right safeguards in place ahead of time.
The other day I was facing a blog post on my screen and I thought to myself …
I’m going to write it quickly. It’s only going to be 500 words. It won’t take more than 15 minutes. Let’s do this.
It took me 45 minutes. It was 1,500 words.
Such is life.
“I have all the time in the world and never worry about meeting my deadlines and personal goals!”
… said no writer ever.
Nope. In this world of schoolwork and bosses, raising kids and making lunches, getting to the gym and consistently failing to get to the gym, it’s increasingly hard to set your writing priorities.
So you’re wondering how to publish a book and if Amazon self-publishing is the way to go.
Perhaps you haven’t had any luck in the traditional publishing space. Maybe you don’t care about traditional publishing and haven’t even tried to land an agent or catch the attention of a big publishing house. Possibly you just want to put a little book out there to boost your business or make some extra bucks.
Whatever the case, Amazon self-publishing may prove to be the perfect path to your authorial dreams. Whatever your why is, we’re here to talk about the how.
Because who doesn’t love a good how?
All lame jokes aside, if you’ve been wondering how to self-publish a book, then I’ve got your back, Jack.
You already know that humor writing is a powerful persuasive technique, but the question is: Why is it so persuasive, and how can you put it to work for you?
Good question, self! Let’s talk about that!
My best friend and I have used a particular expression to describe tough situations ever since we were 14: You laugh or you cry.
Usually, this is itself said with a trace of humor, although sometimes (more often than I’d like to admit), it is said through tears.
