1. Authors are Business Owners Too!

o If you plan on selling even one book – you are running a business!

o It’s easy to treat your authoring journey like a ‘hobby’, but it can be whatever you want it to be – and it can be profitable if that’s what your intention is.

o I have spoken to many authors with boxes of unsold books in their house, waiting for them to magically sell themselves

o Once you set a direction for your authoring business and some goals, you can set a strategy and make it happen!

2. How Big Business Thinking can help solopreneurs

o Most authors are solopreneurs – you can still be a successful business!

o Start by thinking like a business – ‘Big Business Thinking’

o You are the CEO, CFO, COO, Marketing and People manager of your business – even if it is just you

o Caring our just an hour a week to think strategically about your business will set you in the right path

3. The Power of the Magic Budget

o Once you begin thinking like a business, lets set some direction and goals

o From a financial perspective, we will set a budget

o I call all budgets “The Magic Budget” as, when used properly, they are lifechanging in terms of motivation and achieving growth
