After having a lot of conversations with family members, friends, and even strangers I meet throughout my day, I’ve come to realize that a lot of people don’t know how books are made. Similar to the music industry, the publishing industry can look a little bit like magic to people who don’t work in it and see the ins and outs of the process.

I wanted to demystify the process of writing a business book because I want all business owners to know that writing a book is an attainable goal if it’s something you want to do. It’s easy to get frustrated and overwhelmed before even starting, but I think if you know what you’re getting into and if you have realistic expectations, your chances of reaching your goal increases dramatically.

The first article in the series introduces the stages of writing a book and helps you get organized and answer a few questions for yourself before you even think about starting to write. You can read the article here, and stay tuned to this blog and to Businessing Magazine for the rest of the series!
