Build Your Online Rep…Publish an eBook

Have you ever considered writing a book? Many people have. One of my 2011 goals is to take some work I’ve done to grow my professional career and convert it into an ebook. I was a little more motivated today to follow through on this goal when my wife sent me a post from Michael Hyatt’s blog.

Michael Hyatt recently published a very useful ebook recently titled Creating Your Personal Life Plan. As a follow up piece, he’s written about “How to Create an e-Book in Seven Steps.”

Michael Hyatt. I was first introduced to him back in 2003 when Dave Ramsey was in negotiations with Thomas Nelson on his Total Money Makeover book. I still remember the day we went over to Thomas Nelson to do the book contest pitch. Dave had brought in one of his friends, Ron Sorbo (link 1 , link 2), to play the steel drums while Dave and Michael discussed the concept the Total Money Makeover contest…$50,000 and a trip to Cancun if I recall correctly. Well that was 2003, and now Michael Hyatt has become a power users of blogs and social media…possibly the leader in the world of book publishing executives.

So why am I mentioned Michael Hyatt? A friend forwarded something from Michael’s blog to me this week. It was a good post, so here it is. Three Common Mistakes New Leaders Make (And How to Avoid Them)
