"As an academic who doesn't have a marketing bone in my body, Jeff Goins helped me understand branding for my blog in a new way."
"Writers now have the option of building an audience, a brand, and affecting thousands -- maybe millions -- of people with their words. Jeff is showing you the door. The question is, will you open it and put your foot forward?"
From the Author
One day, a friend asked me about my dream. I said I didn't know. "Really?" he said. "That's too bad -- because I would've thought it was to be a writer."
That hit me hard. I told him that was true. I did hope to be a writer. Maybe. Some day. If I was lucky.
He shook his head and smiled: "Jeff, you don't have to want to be a writer. You are a writer. You just need to write." So that's what I did, and it changed everything.
This is an eBook about a journey of becoming a writer. It's a guide to writing and publishing, including how to navigate the world of platform-building and getting your work noticed. Mostly, it's about believing in yourself. About the process of self-doubt we all go through and the declarations we make to do what were made to do.
Whether you realize it or not, you are a writer. You just need to write.
