You want to write a book, you’ve always wanted to write a book, however you have no idea how to do it, no idea where to start and what the process even looks like they were going to impact that and how to get you on the road to writing and publishing your very first book. Hey guys, what’s up and welcome back to my channel. So you guys saw it in the title that this video is all about. Like you want to write your book but you have nowhere to go. You have no idea where to start or how to do it. And I get that a lot. I did a poll on my Instagram and I said, Hey, you guys want to write a book so why haven’t you done it yet? A lot of people were like, well, we don’t, we don’t know what to do. Don’t know where to start. And I was like, okay, cool. And so then I created something for you guys to help you with that. However we were discuss that at the very end. And so we are impacting you three things. We’re talking about what’s truly stopping you from writing your book. We’re talking about why you actually need to write your book and then we’re talking about the first step to get you started. So yeah, so first there’s probably some fear. There’s probably fear in the way. Maybe you feel like, Oh, this is scary. I don’t know if I can do this like bad. I don’t know even where to start so I’m not going to try. Then also there may be some feeling of inadequacy at like, I don’t know if I’m coming for this. I don’t know if I know enough for this. I don’t know if I need three writing a book, you may feel like, ah, I don’t, I don’t know if I even have enough knowledge to write a book, but I’m telling you that every single person, I believe that every single person has a story within side of them as needing to get out of them. Okay. Like you have been through something in your life that you can help other people with. If you were just published your story, like what in your life almost broke you but didn’t, what in your life did you learn the hard way? But now you know, and now you’re an expert in it, but, and you want to help other people not go down that same path. What? There’s something there is literally something. So my challenge to you is to dig deep within yourself and find what that thing is. Okay? And most of you watching this video probably already know what you want to watch your book about. You just don’t know where to start and what to do. All right, we’re going to get to that. Don’t worry. Another thing that may be actually truly stopping you from running your book, and I believe this is the biggest thing, probably this and fear probably the biggest things. Procrastination. The second biggest thing that I’ve seen when I’ve asked different polls on YouTube and I’m Instagram and stuff, is that you guys don’t feel like you have either the time to write. You don’t feel like it’s the right time and stuff like that. And what I hear in that is procrastination. Okay. And we’re going to help you get through that. I want to help you work through that. You, we’re not stuck there. We are not claiming that that is not yours. Okay? That procrastination is about to be gone. All right? Because we’re going to give you the last step. I’m going to give you the first step to get started at the very end of this video. So stay tuned for that. So with procrastination, my biggest tip for you is to just start like stop. Stop saying almost start tomorrow and start tomorrow. Start tomorrow. Because tomorrow’s not promised and you never know what tomorrow’s going to come. And if you’re actually gonna start tomorrow, you know what I mean? Like, so start today while you’re thinking about it. Even if you’re not ready, I’m gonna give you a tip. Okay? You probably will never be ready. It’ll never be the right time. That’s really all. Like there’s never the perfect time. There’s never the perfect day to start. Sometimes you just have to do it and make it work and it made some things may be little fuzzy or some things may like, Ooh, that’s a little rough. However, at least you started. So onto the next thing is why you actually need to write a book. Why you truly need to write a book, and I’ve talked about this a little bit before in this video, but listen, you have a story inside of you. You have a book inside of you. You have a purpose inside of you that can be communicated so well through writing your book. Okay? You can touch so many people, so many more people in so much less time. If you simply write a book about it, then establishes your expertise, but it also establishes you as an expert in your field and your area and what you’re talking about in your book. So listen, you need a book because whatever you’ve learned in your life, like for example, me, I got about 80 books inside of me based on things that I’ve learned of the things that I’ve seen. No, I’m not done living in life obviously. But that doesn’t mean you wait till the end of your life to write a book. You know what I mean? Like I mean you can gay it if you want, but that’s kind of chanting it cause you don’t know if tomorrow is promised. So my biggest thing for you is to really realize that deep with inside of you, you have something that other people, you have something inside of you that as to the solution to other people’s problem and people are waiting on your obedience to hear what you have to say because they may need help knowing that they can get through this, that you got through it. And this is the way you got through it and you are um, being a light to them to show them and their situation, they can make it through to you feel me. And so that’s the whole point. That is why I’m so passionate about testimonials, about your stories, about sharing your stories. Okay. And that is why I’ve created book babe, which I will talk about a little later. It’s going to teach you exactly everything you need to know about writing and publishing and self publishing your very own book and getting that book in your hands. Okay? Okay. So don’t let fear get in the way y’all stop procrastinating. Procrastination has done for, we are not doing that no more. We are going to set goals and I will have several videos on my channel. And how does that, how does that goal you will actually stick to, I’m going to make that video very, very, very soon. So yeah, you have a book inside of you and it’s time to get it out and you most likely right now, you, you already know what your first book could be. You already know on the top of your mind what your first book can be and will be. All right. And so you already know what it needs to be and don’t let your life pass you by and don’t let time continue to pass you by and you not have that book out. You know what I mean? Like not only is that impact for other people, that’s also another form of passive income. And no, we don’t do things solely for money obviously, because you’ll quit that easily. But um, it’s also a great benefit. You know what I mean? Like you are going to get paid for your work in that. Like how about you’ve put your pain and it turned that into purpose. You seen on parents say turn that into something that can help other people going through whatever they’re going through. So that is why I believe you need to write a book. And a lot of people may say, Oh well I’m not good enough this, I don’t have the expertise at this. I don’t have this, I don’t have that. Those are excuses. And yes, you do. You have everything you need right now inside of you to get this book out. If you okay, you have everything inside of inside of you that you need to know, right? So let’s do this. Okay, no more excuses and it’s okay. We are becoming are at constant work in progress. You are never going to truly arrive because when you’ve completely arrived, you’re dead. You see what I’m saying? Like you’re always becoming a better version of yourself. You’re always becoming more and more of you. If you have a brand, if you have a business, um, whatever. If you are a caterer, if you are, I’m a poet. There’s power in publishing your story and publishing your book because again, that is wanting to establish herself as an expert in your field. Imagine, imagine me and caterer and getting booked by someone and say, Oh, also, here’s my recipe book. Here’s my cookbook. Yo, what you sit. I’m saying like that. That’s like, Oh well she fancy that. I think that’s just an amazing way to get cloud. I’m about you. But then also to have that as your expertise and show people what you made of the lynching GAT. Okay? Books are still powerful and that’s why millionaires and entrepreneurs are reading 24 36 books a year. You know what I mean? Like books are so powerful, and so that’s why I encourage you to get it out one expertise, but then two, to share your story and to share your impact facts. Here are a few things to help get you started. All right. So first and foremost, you’re going to start brainstorming, brainstorm. If you already don’t know, if you don’t already know what you want your book to be about, start brainstorming on what you could possibly write a book about. Okay? Just start brainstorming. If you love poetry, there is a possibility you could have a book on all of your poetry. It’s okay. You know what I mean? Like you can branch out, do different things. I’ve seen books of poetry too. So anyway, all that to say is start make it, I just like to have a blank so I don’t even have to have like lined paper. I actually grabbed like a piece of computer paper and uh, or print paper and I will just start writing stuff down. What are you good at? So write that down, write that question down and then write down and right under that, what are you good at them to? What do people ask you about the most? What do people always come at you and say, Hey, your name. How do I do this? What do I need to do in order to do this? What do people ask you the most about? And that can be your book. That can be the topic of your book. You see what I’m saying? Number two is to research a lot. This is where a lot of people go wrong and various things over on social media is that people create content that they want to see and not that what their audience wants to sees. Don’t want to see you want to write a book that is going to sell. Obviously you want to write a book that is solving someone’s problem and that right there is the key. So you’re going to research to see exactly to make sure that people were actually looking for the answer to their problem and that you can actually solve that answer to your problem with your book. And so you guys may be wondering, okay, well how does a cookbook solve somebody’s problem? Well, a cookbook and actually help a working mom be able to, um, be able to throw recipes together way quicker than what it would take her scouting around on the internet. You see what I’m saying? I’m trying to say poetry document with somebody. Okay. Like she’s expressing herself as I express myself as well. It can be anything and of course a story of impact and show somebody how to get through what they’re going through or just to feel that they’re not alone. You know what I mean? Like so that’s my biggest thing is like, like see research to make sure that your book is something that people are looking for one and then also make sure the troop book is the answer to somebody’s problem. And then step number three is you probably can guess it is to simply start writing. Okay, don’t think about it too hard. Just simply start writing and then when you start writing, don’t edit, don’t go back and critique your writing it right at that point. That’s why you have different drafts and different read throughs of your writing. And my biggest tip is whenever you start writing, I highly recommend you use a Google doc. I’ve used word docs and my entire document has been deleted or hard drive crashed or something like that. So I personally, I use Google doc one because I have my laptop, I have my desktop, I have my phone, and it’s easy for me to be able to connect all those different things in one platform. Um, and so I love Google doc, but my biggest tip I’ve all this is to simply start writing. Don’t overthink it. You have everything inside of you that you need to do. I’m already assuming that you are an expert within your field. You are an expert and you can establish your expertise even further by getting a book out and imagine how it will feel to have your name. Learn how one of my books right here to have your name on the copy of a book. Like what? Like what you feel me. And so like this is my book, thrive, her thrive. It’s a workbook to help people thrive in their hair care journey and develop a kick butt, their care routine. Okay? And because of that, like literally people were able to take this and this is a solution to so many people’s problems. Because I had, I had used, my channel used to always be all about hair. And so I know people were struggling with this. So I created something to fill that void. You see what I’m saying? So your book is going to be the answer. So ones problem, but just imagine what it will feel like. That sense of accomplishment and what it will feel like for you to be able to say, this is my book. I wrote this book, I designed this book, I created this book, whatever. Um, imagine what that feel like for me. It was a feeling that I can’t even explain. It was this overwhelming feeling of like, Andrea, you did it, girl, you did it. Okay, you’re pushed through. Okay. Cause it wasn’t easy, but it was 100% worth it. So my question to you as well, would it look like for you to finally finish your book? How would that feel for you to finally finish your book? Let me know down below in the comments. What, what feeling like that sense of accomplishment. Let me know what that would mean for you. Okay. I mean for your family and mean for your audience and your pupil. I’m supporting you and stuff like that. And people who are buying from you. If you’re a business or a brand, what would that look like for you to be able to finally finish your book?
