How To Get From Where You Are To Where The Riches Are

Are you wondering how you’re going to accomplish your vision for your booklet business?  Does the journey from where you are to where you want to be seem too difficult?  Maybe you’ve just heard about writing booklets, and you’d like to do it but you’re having trouble connecting all the dots to understanding how to make it happen.  Or maybe you’re somewhere in the middle, with a created booklet, and you’re trying to figure out what your next step is.  No matter where you are in your booklet adventure there is one thing you must NOT do in order to succeed.  You must never give up.

A Booklet Business Isn’t Build In A Day

Building a booklet business isn’t something that happens in a day.  It happens over time, step by step.  Everything you do for and in your business is like a building block or a brick.  There is a process to it.  You can’t make a sale until you have a product to sell.  You can’t have a product to sell until it is created.  And your product can’t be created until you first come up with the idea from which it will take its shape.  If you’re at the very beginning of your booklet adventure, then you must come up with an idea.  You won’t be able to move forward without knowing what kind of booklet you’re going to create.  Once your booklet manuscript is written, then you must move to the production step of the process, because you can’t make a sale without a finished product.

Each step of the process unfolds as you continue in the adventure.  Sometimes, a particular step isn’t always completely clear, but in time you’ll have the answers you need as long as you don’t give up.  Keep going.

What To Do When You Don’t Have The Money To Move Forward

Sometimes knowledge isn’t the problem.  You might be completely clear on what your next step is, but you don’t have the funds to move forward.  Don’t let this stop you.  Booklets are downright cheap to create compared to self publishing a book.  Instead of thousands of dollars, you’ll only need a few hundred dollars, and that amount is attainable for anyone.

If funding your next step is your problem, and you’re trying to figure out how you can come up with the money you need, first take a look at what you have and where you spend it.  Does every cent literally go for living expenses and food, or are you spending money on movies and lattes that you could put aside toward your booklet project?  You may have a little cash each month that you could save toward getting that next step in the process completed.

No extra cash?  All your money goes toward your living and food expenses?  How about doing a little fund raising, such as writing articles or selling off some things you’re not using on ebay?  How about getting your extended family and friends together and doing a big garage sale?  Maybe they’ll even donate their earnings from the sale toward your project.

Maybe you have another skill, aside from writing, that you could use to get the money you need for your project.  No?  Perhaps you could take a temporary, part time job such as working at your local state fair when they hire, or taking a temporary job during the holiday season.  As a writer, even a non-fiction one, you’re forced to have a certain amount of creativity.  Use that creativity toward finding a solution to your funding problem.  Don’t give up.  You can do this!  You can make it happen if you’re willing to put forth a little creative thinking and then take action.

Which Way Will You Go?

Nothing worthwhile is ever achieved without a few road blocks.  The road blocks are what separate those who overcome from the ones who cower in fear and turn back.  They are what stand between those who thrive, and those who merely exist.  And the road blocks are what make the rich rich, and keep the rest living paycheck to paycheck.

How will you deal with the road blocks in your booklet adventure?  Will you see them as insurmountable and impassable and turn back?  Or will you face them head on, conquer them and move forward?  The riches are on the other side.

To your riches!

  1. I just finished building a boat…launched it last weekend. The best way to finish a large project or even a small one, is to just doing SOMETHING towards completion every day. Many a day while building the boat, I just cut one small piece of wood and glued it on. In the morning, the glue was dry and I was ready to do the next piece. Complete one small part every day. Even if you can’t call a portion finished, do something towards its completion. I’m in a club with guys who build their own airplanes. It can sometimes take years to finish. Their advice is always, make one small part a day. That way, you won’t lose momentum, even if that momentum is small and slow. Go great guns when you can.
    Barbara Sher’s book, “Wishcraft” has the best method I’ve ever seen for working out a plan so you’ll always know what needs doing next- even if that ‘next’ is working at something else to make the money you need for your project. Barbara’s reverse flow-charting is revolutionary. Get her book and read all about it.

    • You built a boat? Wow! I’m impressed! And now your building an airplane? I admire your ambition. How exciting! I guess booklets are no problem for you!

      Thanks for your insightful comment. One step at a time, one day at a time is how anything of magnitude worth doing gets done. Someone once asked how to eat an elephant, and the reply was, “One bite at a time.”

      When your booklet project looms too large and overwhelms you, break it down into smaller steps and figure out just what you need to tackle today. The rest can wait until tomorrow. A little progress today, a little more tomorrow, and very soon it will be done.

      Thanks so much for sharing this with everyone. I appreciate all of your comments. And the book sounds great! I love books, and haven’t read this one yet, but I’ve seen it at my local borders. Time to go browsing again!
