#1.60: How to be an Authority in Your Industry by Becoming an Author
April 2, 2020
Writing a book and becoming an author is one of the best ways to establish yourself as an expert. Learn how to get started and use your book to drive business to your door.

Want to know the ultimate business card is? Believe it or not, it's a book.

More and more experts are writing these days as a way of demonstrating their expertise and positioning themselves as the go-to person in their industry. You can do it too!

Just think about it for a moment... If you were considering hiring someone to give advice, consultancy or solve a problem, you want to hire an expert, right?

There is no better way to show that you're an expert than being a published author (or perhaps speaking on stage or TV).

While it takes time and effort to write a book, it's something most people can achieve and there's a lot of help and advice available. You've then got a killer business card you can give (or sell) to would-be clients and sky-rocket yourself up to the top of their list for who to hire.

Even publishing isn't an issue these days with the ability to self-publish.

My guest today is a friend of the show, Karen Williams. Karen appeared on the Get Real About Business Podcast back on episode 16. Her latest book Becoming an Authority is now out and I invited her back
