82% of Americans Want to Write a Book and Never Do

Yes, I’m still a CPA and I still work in the tax world. I have private consultations, prepare tax returns, and do a lot of research.
Today, though, I want to talk about writing. A staggering 82% of Americans want to write a book. Sadly, most never do.
I had always wanted to write. My first co-authored book came out in 1994. I’ve been writing business books ever since then. I stuck with the nonfiction market because there is more demand for these kinds of books and the price per book is more. It just made sense to write about what I knew, taxes.
Since then I’ve learned a lot more about both writing books, but also publishing and tricks to launching so that you actually make money with your writing.  

How Much Money Can You Make Writing? 

There are a couple of credible Facebook groups that talk about writing for your market, and making money when you do:
20 Books to $50,000 per year.  

28 Books to $100,000 per year.  

I know that doesn’t make logical sense (How could just 8 more books double your income?) but there is a reason why that occurs. It has to do with the type of books written. 

FREE Workshop to Get You Started 

I’m setting aside a Saturday in April to run a FREE online workshop, all about writing a book. It is open for coaching students only and we will need to limit the class size. I’ll send out info to coaching students this next week about how to register. If you can’t make it, that’s okay. You’ll get the workbook and an edited video of the presentations as part of coaching. 
I’m going to start with nonfiction and focus first on writing a book to promote your business. If there is interest, I may add different genres later. These will only be open to coaching students.
The writing a book started as part of Sustainable Digital Empires, which is part of the Wednesday coaching classes, but it has taken on a life of its own. If you’ve ever thought of writing a book, this FREE one-day workshop may be just the thing you need to get going. Although it is focused first primarily on writing a business book, the principals can be used for any type of business. 
Our coaching schedule is:  

First Wednesday (5 pm Pacific) – Real Estate 

Second Wednesday (5 pm Pacific) – Sustainable Digital Empires lesson 

Third Wednesday (5 pm Pacific) – Business 

Fourth Wednesday (5 pm Pacific) – Sustainable Digital Empires lesson 

If there is a fifth Wednesday in a month, you get an extra day to catch up on all the content you’ve received. 
Plus, remember you can ask questions live or send in a question to Coaching@USTaxAid.com
If you are just joining coaching, make sure you download all of the Home Study Courses and the past lesson. As a way to get ready for the all-day workshop, please make sure you review the Sustainable Digital Empire for an eCommerce business Lessons #2, #3 and #4. Plus review the lesson from 3/10/2021. These will all help you prepare for the workshop.
