How To Write An E Book

Write Your First E Book

Writer Extraordinaire

The purpose of this post is to help you write an e book.  Whatever phase your in, writing an e book can be fun.  I like to write short freebies for my list and I find it to be great practice for the real thing when I’m collecting money for my e books.  I am always in the process of writing something, whether it’s my blog, an e book, poetry, songs, or just my journal, so I would be someone who could tell you how to break out of that nasty writers block and do it for the bliss of it.

Of course we want to move past the hobby aspect of blogging and writing and become an expert professional.  We want to be paid.  So we are going to have to solve problems.  That’s what your e book should do for your readers.  It should solve a problem for them in a quick way and make their life better.  Part of the beauty of this process is that you can do it all from home.  You don’t have to leave the house, except for the events.  Just imagine collecting money in your pajamas.

Not that you’d always be wearing pajamas.  You might sometimes be dressed in pants and a nice shirt.  Smelling good.  Feeling good.  Feeling like you could in fact be your own boss and explode your income to heights it’s never been before.  What would the e book look like if you felt that way as you wrote it.

Here’s something that might help you.  Before you write your e book, take 15 minutes and visualize solving a problem with your e book.  Take that time and really see what it looks like to have an e book that your subscribers will get a lot of value from and just do that for 15 minutes prior to writing.  Try it Today!

Back to the subject of how to write an e book, like I’ve already said, you’ve got to solve a problem.  The value for the reader is that you’ve helped them fix their life.  Help somebody fix their life, or add to their life, will gain you more and more subscribers.  Once you get to that 1,000 subscriber mark, you’ll be ready to make your first product launch, and you’ll find out just how much money you can make in your first month.

Then you’ll be writing e books for money, and not just to give more of your valuable content away for free.  Soon, if you choose this path, you’ll be working from home full time, making a full time income.  Nothing succeeds like success and your made of it.  You are after all capable of making money off your blog, so there should be nothing stopping you from making 4 times as much off your own business as you do working for someone else.  The question is would you be satisfied with that, or would you want more?

I’ve been reading Catherine Ponder’s “Dynamic Laws Of Prosperity” and in it one of the affirmations is the following:


Something I wanted to end this post with, maybe try using it when your relaxing in your down time.

How Do You Finance Your Dreams Of Blogging For Income?

Work Hourly.

Right now I’m paying $40 a month to keep this website running, and to keep a list up on my site.

It costs 10 dollars a month for the site, and 30 dollars a month for the email list.

That’s not too bad considering you could be paying a lot more to be part of a network marketing company.

And maybe I will join another network marketing company, when my list gets big enough.  I may want to sell the Empower Network again.  Only this time I’m blogging on my own domain, and not on the Empower Network blog.

Because that’s what I would tell you to do if you joined the Empower Network with me.  The information is worth the price, and you can learn a lot by being apart of the Empower Network.  I propose that even if you never resold anything, you will still get your monies worth.

But I am in the business of creating profits.  So I want to sell things, and I want you to sell things and I am looking to be a part of the business of selling information.  I say if you don’t want to spend the money on Network Marketing, then you could build your business from scratch by starting your own blog.

And that’s what I do.

I work hourly 5 days a week and I earn my pay.  I don’t get paid that much because most anyone could do the work I’m doing but I’m still improving enough, and providing enough value to get raises and bonuses.  So I’m doing good at my hourly job.  If you want to learn how you can duplicate my success with your hourly job and increase your pay, you can read Success Hourly, my free e book.

So say you’ve got your hourly job, and you’ve read Success Hourly, and are on your way to getting raises there, then you may still want more!  You may want to take what you earn per year and turn that into your monthly income.  I say it can be done!  And you can do it online.  And it all starts with blogging.

So I work my hourly job and I read and write with my free time, along with taking care of my family.  It’s a good life and who knows, when I’ve finally made it with an online business I might STILL want to keep working my hourly job.  Although I probably will take the time and spend more of myself on the writing.

So I’m secure.  Nothing is going to stop me from making it online.  I plan to make it BIG.  When I do my focus is going to shift from helping people work their hourly jobs, to helping people blog and make money off e books and network marketing.

Because think of it, if you had an e book for sale and it did well, that would be an easy transition into network marketing.  You would already have a list and a body of work to support your efforts in whatever you choose to do.  It’s really a win win.  I say don’t settle for less.  Make more!  Earn more!

And it doesn’t take much money to get a business going.  I’m paying 40 dollars a month and that’s what I need to blog and get a list going.  And I can easily pay for that by working a few hours each week.  And if you consider the potential returns, you’re really risking very little with A LOT to gain.

But today was a good day.  I started at 10am this morning cutting ham off the bone and turning the ham into portions for sandwiches.  I spent two hours doing that, then I was sent to the other two stores, driving the box truck, to drop off bacon and crackers.  That took me about 3 hours.  I spent another hour in the store after I got back from my trip and I got off at 4pm.  A good six hours.  I got paid today!

And there will be plenty more where that came from.  The place I work at will have me for as long as I want to stay there, and that’s a good thing, because with blogging and starting a business online, you really could be looking at years before you start to get any results.

The way I look at it is, you have to put about 10 years of it in before you can say you’ve mastered it.  And I definitely want to master blogging.  So I’ve really got another 8 years to go before I reach that time frame.  Chances are I’ll make my first dollar before I’ve mastered blogging, and that’s a good thing, because I can learn as I go.

Because I say you can be at any point in your business development and STILL be able to provide value to the reader.  So it doesn’t matter if you’ve never blogged before, you can get started today for very little money.

And if you want to free yourself from your job, like me, that’s exactly what you’ll do.  And you’ll work it, day in, day out, really adding the bam bam bam bam to everything you do, and you’ll be a better person because of it.  I say the more work you put in the better.  David Wood of the Empower Network recommends you blog daily.  I don’t do that much, but I do post on a regular basis.  If you want to get updates on this site, put your email address in and subscribe.  I’ll send you out the link to the latest post so you know when one is up.

And you can come back and get more inspiration!

I just wanted to write this to you to let you know that you can put your money to good use by blogging and starting a business online.  And that your investment in yourself could really produce a return.  But you’ve got to keep working your hourly job to support yourself in the meantime, but hey, who knows, with enough daily work you could be free in no time.  But really though, it will probably take you a number of years to make any money at all.

But I know it can be done because there are examples of it all over the internet.  You can make money blogging and selling e books!  All it takes is some time everyday, a work ethic, a little money, and a big ambition.  And you can run your blog and work an hourly job at the same time!  There’s really nothing to lose.

So go now and write your blog.  Write your e books.  Get your list up.  Read books.  Take action and improve your life!  Have a beer and drink to your health, wealth, and wisdom.  Here’s to your success!  Cheers!
