*** FREE webinar on Speaking on Cruise ships Thurs Dec 19 ***
Do you have a book that you have written?
If so, honestly, how much money did you make from the book? How long did it take to you write the book? Simple math – divide the amount of money you made by the number of hours it took you to write the book.
Was it worth it?
Having a book that you have written is good form for the cruise ship seminar leader. It fact, it is a given. No book? Good luck getting a speaking gig.
I can think of 3 reasons why you, the cruise ship speaker, should want to write a book.
1. Credibility – if you have written a book it establishes you as someone who is willing to make the commitment to sit down and do the work, put yourself out there and open yourself up to criticism – good and bad.
2. New Calling Card – to get on radio or television AND to get on a cruise ship having written a book is a requirement. Instead of giving someone your business card, give them a copy of your book. Not everyone mind you … only those people deserving = interested in having you speak for them.
3. Door opener – I tell people that a monkey can write a book. The book might not be any good but it’s a book nonetheless. Getting your book read is the hard part. When your book does get read, however, watch for doors to open that traditional marketing cannot do.
Here’s my advice – write a book.
