When I first became a Published Author (in 2010), I intuitively recognized that, in order to become a Bestselling Author, I would have to treat being an Author as a Business! So, I became what I called an Authorpreneur. And in today's publishing industry, that's even more of a necessity than it was a dozen years ago!
Before we go any further, I do want to offer a caveat:
It's perfectly okay to just be an Author.
What do I mean by that?
If all you want to do is write and publish the book(s) of your heart, so you can show your friends and family that you've done that and crossed it off your Bucket List, that's perfectly fine! You've made your dream come true of being a Published Author. And, at LetLoveGlow Author Services, I help a lot of wonderful writers and human beings do just that!
But ... let's say that you want more than that ...
YOU want to have a shot at being a BESTSELLING AUTHOR.
YOU want READERS AROUND THE WORLD.
YOU want to MAKE A CAREER OF BEING AN AUTHOR.
YOU want to MAKE A BIT OF MONEY DOING WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO --- WRITING AND PUBLISHING THE BOOKS OF YOUR HEART.
Well, sweet friend, that means YOU NEED TO BE AN AUTHORPRENEUR!
The majority of my time, and what I love to do most, is take my LetLoveGlow Authors from AUTHORS TO AUTHORPRENEURS.
So, the next logical question becomes: How do I do that?
And the answer is that it all begins with your Mindset. YOU must LEARN AND APPLY THE MINDSET OF BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR to BEING AN AUTHOR/AUTHORPRENEUR.
The easiest way to begin that transformation from Creator (Writer/Author) to Entrepreneur (Authorpreneur) is by reading all the great reads you can get your hands on about all-things Being an Entrepreneur. And in this new blog series, I'm going to share a few of my faves.
To launch this series, I've chosen the amazing Rachel Rodgers and her phenomenal book WE SHOULD ALL BE MILLIONAIRES. I am not only learning a great deal from Rachel's philosophies and tips, but I love Love LOVE her sassy, unique-take-on-basic-good-business-scoop author voice!
She had me when she said it's time to STOP MAKING BROKE ASS DECISIONS (BADs) and MAKE MILLION DOLLAR DECISIONS (MDDs). And she's helping me make and understand those decisions in new and fabulously fun (lol!) ways.
I know it says this book is for women, but it's a serious guide for all you guys, too!
I can't wait to hear what you all think of this gem of a read!!!
Cheers Hugs and Love --- DD
