At some point after you begin your booklet adventure, you will have an end goal in mind – a finish line. Maybe it will be a certain amount of income coming in. Maybe it will be a series of booklets that are created and doing well in the marketplace. Or maybe it will be something beyond writing – such as speaking, with an entire product line to offer your audience. Whatever your idea is of your finish line, there’s one thing you need to know – reaching that finish line will feel great, but it isn’t the end.
What Money Can Do For You
If income is your goal, it’s attainable with a booklet, but dont’ you think you can always use just a little bit more? If you’re making $50,000 a year, wouldn’t it be nice to make $75,000? How about $100,000 or $200,000 or more?
It’s true that money can’t buy happiness. But, it can buy a romantic vacation for two. It can pay off the bills and the mortgage. It can help the kids or grandkids go to college. It can help alleviate some of the stress for you and your family.
With most businesses, if you want to make more money you have to do alot more work. But, that’s not the case with booklets. The difference between $100,000 and $200,000 might be as simple as a single phone call. Or it could mean offering your market just one new product – a product that took you very little effort to create, or maybe no extra effort at all.
When it comes to income, there is never a finish line. You may be happy and comfortable with $200,000 a year and that’s fine. But if you don’t come up with a new goal to work toward things become stagnate and you will get bored. Your new goal doesn’t have to be a monetary one. It just needs to be something you truly want and are willing to work toward.
Why Even A Single Booklet Is Not A Finish Line
If you create a booklet and it does well, it stands to reason you will want to create a second booklet. If the second one does well, you might create a third one. Now you have a series or a family of related booklets to offer your marketplace. But, why stop there?
Just as there can’t be a finish line for your income, you don’t want a finish line for your booklet either. You may not want to create several different booklets or products, and if you’re happy with a single booklet to offer and that’s all you ever want to do, great. But, you’ll still want to continue to offer that booklet to new prospects and you might even find ways to get your customers to buy your booklet repeatedly. Even a single booklet that is doing well cannot be a finish line. There is always more to strive for!
Of course, if you do want to create additional products and booklets, then you can keep going indefinitely. Isn’t that wonderful? You never have to reach a finish line with your booklet or your products. You can continue to create them as long as you have viable ideas that excite you!
There Is Always More You Can Do
Have you thought about speaking or teaching about your booklet’s subject? This may be a goal for you, but it is not a finish line. Just as there is always more money to make and always more booklets and other products to create, there is always more you can do to further your expertise, your business and your career.
Maybe you’ll start out speaking at local clubs or colleges for free. Wouldn’t it be nice to get paid for that? Of course it would! That would be your next goal. And once you are getting paid, wouldn’t it be nice to get paid more? Yes! And then, wouldn’t it be nice to be invited back on a regular basis so you have a regular income from speaking and teaching? Yes!
You see, when you imagine your goals, whether in terms of income, products or your career, those goals seem like a finish line. But, they’re really just a turning point in your booklet adventure to something greater. You want to reach your goals, and then go in that new direction to reach the next, even greater goal – whatever that next goal is.
