In this anthology, we are presenting stories to celebrate, honor salute, and acknowledge black women across the globe. It’s our time ladies. Time to collaborate and embrace greatness while we release our stories of success, business and increase to bless others. Black women have come a long way and it is time to celebrate us.
The sole purpose of this book is to uplift and showcase the stories of black women’s successes, great sacrifices and celebrations that have been unseen, unheard, and swept under the rug for centuries. I say “NO MORE HIDING”, join us in writing and releasing the stories that set us on a path to greatness and gratitude.
This morning I woke up to royalties in my bank account. I decided in 2021 that I refused to let my books sit on thousands of websites and not make money. What was the whole point of me publishing in the first place? Publishing created passive income for me. Publishing for me meant I could get paid for all the pain and toxic mess I’d been through. Publishing for me meant I could build freedom. This meant I could make money I didn’t have to physically work for. You write and publish one time and it creates wealth over and over again. 💵
Many authors only publish for a title, to become famous or popular. Damn a title, I needed to produce some major results outside of how many books I sold at my book signing. Then no one sees or hears about the book ever again. Meanwhile, you’re still trying to figure out how to start a business and truth is, you already have one. Your book is a whole business that produces wealth if you position it to.
Your title as an author means absolutely nothing if your not benefiting from it. Your book can be an entire brand if you position it to be. Many authors get so caught up in a book cover with their face on it and don’t realize it’s not about you, it’s about the message. It’s about the information someone is searching for right now that you have in your book. What are you doing with your message? Messages are meant to be monetized not trapped in our heads or in a book we have failed to market or expose to our readers we haven’t met yet. Do yourself a favor, go live, write a blog post, or better yet send an email to your subscribers who haven’t heard from you in a while. They are searching for answers right now that are in your book.
So what, you published a book? How are you and the world benefiting from your published book? What else are you offering after you sell one book? You begged family and friends to support this dream of yours and then after the book signing they haven’t seen your book or heard from you. 🤔 I have seen authors 10-15 years later forget they even published a book. My take on that is, they never meant to impact the world with their message. They only wanted to be an over night success without putting in the work.
If 2020 didn’t teach you anything about building your own streams of income then I’m clearly not talking to you. For those who received the wake up call, what are you waiting for? Learn how to create real wealth from your book today. Connect Today on Instagram @blackwritersspace
It’s amazing how folks will give credit to a community or group of people for someone successfully building a business. Over the years I’ve heard things like, oh XYZ CHURCH built his or her business or once she got the job at such and such company that’s how they’re business blew up.
I find it crazy that you rarely hear anyone give credit to the owner/entrepreneur for building their business with blood sweat and tears. What I know is, no one is there when you are burning the midnight oil. No one knows how many marketing plans you went through to figure out which one worked the best. No one knows how many sleepless nights you’ve had. It’s so much that goes on behind closed doors that’s unseen and not given credit for.
Let’s normalize giving credit to the entrepreneur for working hard to build their business and stop giving credit to your unreliable opinion.
Being an author CEO has an entirely different meaning to me now. My literary goals sit different in my brain now. For years we’ve disrespected the art of publishing. For me it’s the art and the passive residual wealth my words produce. It’s the wealth for me💰. I’ve worked labor jobs my entire life but nothing quenches my would like writing. Have you ever loved something so much you can feel it down in your soul. It’s the joy in writing for me. It’s time to work smarter not harder. This is the season where quarterly goals are at an all time high. Take the time to create some passive income in your life. Whether it’s an eBook, a digital course or a checklist. Once it’s created, it no longer requires your time. It’s time to wake up with money in your bank.
