What Would You Love to Accomplish During the Pandemic; Write a Book?

What would you love to accomplish during the pandemic; Write a Book? The pandemic seems to be over; however, a race between the new variants storming the world is still possible.  How we handle any new pandemic will be different. 

However, vaccination shots take a back seat in most countries over new variants.

Like many folks, I feel confident that we as a world are in a better place.

What Would You Love to Accomplish During the Pandemic; Write a Book?

According to writer Joseph Epstein, “81 percent of Americans feel that they have a book in them – and should write it.”.

Mission Accomplished – Keep Reading If You Have a Book In You.

I wrote a book after several failed attempts over the last few years.

Over the last few decades, I have had a passion for investment real estate. I am also going into my tenth year of helping clients purchase their first investment real estate property.

I coached most clients in person and saw no need for a website or formal content in a workbook or book.

But the more I worked with coaching clients, the more they asked me if I could, at the very least, create a workbook and planning guide—in other words, a place where they could keep the learning they were receiving from our coaching sessions.

Working with a beta group of clients, I wrote my workbook and planning guide, which captured my investment real estate methods, processes, and content. I was proud of the workbook and planning guide, ready to use with one-on-one clients, and then boom—the pandemic hit the world.

My workbook and planning guide editor said, Rick, this should be a book. At first, I was resistant to this notion, but as my coaching clients dried up from the pandemic, I knew it was time to mope around or do something special.

The Book Writing Journey Began

What Would You Love to Accomplish During the Pandemic; Write a Book?

The first advice I had been given repeatedly was to niche down. By niching down, you can have more impact on people. It was very general when I started writing a book on investment real estate. There are many excellent books and content on investment real estate; how could I offer something different?

I analyzed my coaching clients and joint venture partners, and they shared one common trait: they were all first-time investment real estate investors.

I niched down and wrote a book for first-time investment real estate investors.

Invested in Me – Honed My Self-Publishing and Marketing Book Skills

During the pandemic, I decided to get more education on self-publishing and how to market a book. I attended a Writers’ Conference through Zoom in the fall of 2020. The experience was fantastic, and the learning was excellent.

I was introduced to a self-publishing and marketing book expert and coach. I signed up for a twelve-week beta writers’ group program, a godsend.

Advance Review Copy, Free Copy of My Book

Part of launching a successful book is getting folks to read your book before your book launch. It would be best to reach out to influencers in your industry and readers who would like your book’s content. Getting these folks to read your book in advance would offer readers a free copy and ask for an honest review of your work.

What Else Could I Offer?

Not only have I offered my advanced readers a free copy of my book, but another benefit is that the book is not yet available for purchase.

I am also looking for feedback to improve my book and will recognize the contributions of advanced readers in a portion of it.
