I read an article in CIO about a guy who had a start-up business called JibberJobber, a service for job seekers. He also had another idea – to write a book about using LinkedIn for job searching. Pretty soon, he had a publishing contract.
Zip forward five years. He’s sold 12,000 copies and earned just under $100,000. His company has “credibility” because of his book. He’s now considered an authority.
In the article, he goes on to tell readers how they, too, can do what he did.
Now, before you all zip over to read the article, leave a comment and tell us what kind of book you would write and about what? What expertise do you have that you could put in a book and re-make yourself as an expert who would be paid to speak at conferences and other venues? What would be your book’s title? Or, give us a one-line tease for your book.
