Big Promise: How to Overcome the Barriers to Writing a Book
Thanks for having me here. I promise you that the next few minutes will be very, very valuable for you. My big promise to you is that you will overcome the barriers to writing a book. You know, everyone wants to write a book, but somehow they talk themselves out of it.
During the next few minutes, we are going to go over some of the most frequently asked questions. [bctt tweet="Anyone who wants more business should write a book." username="danielhall"] If you are a bricklayer, you show up for work every day. No one says, “Oh, I don’t feel inspired to dig my ditch today,” or “I don’t feel inspired to lay bricks today.” Or, “I’m waiting for some inspiration to come so that I can dig a ditch.” They just show up and work. Somehow, for writers, it’s like, “I’m looking at a blank page. I have writer’s block.” Well, you know, the secretary is filing a ton of insurance forms a day. She doesn’t get “filer’s block,” but somehow we get blocks. So, in the next few minutes we are going to overcome some of those blocks, and I’ll show you how you can write a book fast, fast, fast, fast, fast.
