What it is to write a book like to start a company
Do you have an notion you can't let go of? It could turn into a deal or a novel. I' ve been spending a great deal of my life discussing how companies should tackle a new company and I've found that there are many more similarities between setting up a company and introducing a new one than you can one.
When I published my first novel, The Entrepreneur Equation, I thought I would give some insight into the similarities between the two. The decision to set up a company is different from the decision to set up a company successfully. It' difficult to know what to do if you don't know your ultimate destination.
Same with your work. Do you hope to make a living with it or are you using it to send a good news item (by the way, if your aim is to make a bit of cash, would you like to start by chatting with some business professionals)? This will not only influence the design and strategies of your script, but also the introduction and commercialization of your work.
I' m always in the shop to preach about how important it is to know the client, but my first script was somewhat inadequate in this section (which was corrected in the second round thanks to the great feedbacks of the people!). In order to be successfull in your company, you have to know which point of pains you solve for your customers and how you create value.
Plus, if "everyone" is your client, you're going to have a tough timeframe ever to reach anyone, so having a focus at all is crucial. This also applies to your textbook (especially non-fiction). Wonder what concrete benefit your readers will gain by spending their own precious resources and resources on your work.
Not only will this determine how you convey your story in the story, but also how you want to promote your work. At a time when we have acess to practically everything we want and need, plus a lot of shit we don't give a damn about, it's difficult to have a really new notion.
For a company, the concept is not of value; it is implemented every single working days on the company's daily schedule. Same goes for a work. As soon as you have the concept, you have to start writing the script and then go to Markt, Markt, Markt, Markt! The majority of publishing houses take at least as much, if not more, concern themselves with your advertising plans as with the contents of the work.
So even if you have a great notion if you can't or don't want to hit the sidewalk to achieve your objectives, there isn't much value there. When you are "Open For Business", that's when the hard work begins. Designing a good concept and drawing up your own plans is child's play in comparison to what you have to put up with every single workingday to make your company work.
Same goes for a work. As a general misunderstanding, you'll be done when you're done with it...not like that! As discouraging as it may seem, composing the script is simple in comparison to everything that comes next. Be prepared to invest a great deal of your own efforts (and, according to your objectives, money) after the work has been completed!
Be sure to review a ledger and get ready for it, just like a company if you want to succeed.
