Ebook Answers Bonus — How can you write your ebook faster? (Free teleseminar)

Some people ask me how I managed to write so many ebooks in such a short amount of time (It’s about 23, I think, at this point.)

It used to be a hard question to answer because I didn’t really think about it much.

I just had a certain way of going about it.

But over time, I got even better at it. And quicker. And I systemetized the process so I could follow the process time after time. And now, new ebooks get written blazingly fast! (You’d be surprised at how quickly I wrote one of my best ebooks — you’ll find out on the next page.)

But, in advance of the Big Bucks Ebook Kickstart webinar, I wanted to share with you some of my

Ebook Answers #11 – How to KickStart your Big Money Ebook

I used to think that the biggest problem with writing ebooks is getting started. We all have dreams, and passions, and knowledge — or simply a desire to sell something online — but a whole bunch of us have trouble actually writing those first words.

It turns out, though, that I might have been wrong.

The biggest problem is NOT writing those first words.

The biggest problem is writing those first words FIRST.

Okay, that’s got to be a bit confusing to you, so I’ll explain.

There’s a big difference between writing a small-money (or no-money) ebook, and writing an ebook that sells continually, throws off lots of money, and builds a business for you — what I call a Big Money Ebook.

Because, look, quite honestly, writing just any old small-money ebook is actually easy. Just type what you want to say into Microsoft Word. Tap. Tap. Tap.

You may feel fulfilled that you got it all down on "paper", but you’ll spend all of your time struggling to make it sell. It won’t.

(I just got an email the other day from a reader in Africa. He said, " I have several ebooks on a $18,000,000,000 yearly industry and yet i cannot seem to find the people (to buy it). " Sheesh.)

Great example. But just typing the words is not what we’re talking about here.

Ebook Answers #10 – Do you suffer from the Passion Trap?

The other day, I asked the question, “What makes YOU an Expert?

Did you read that article? If not, I suggest you do. It’s important because so many people — aspiring online entrepreneurs like you — fill their heads with negative talk that keeps them from living their dreams.

Well, today, I’ve got another perspective on this whole Expert thing. And, like yesterday, you might hate me, or think I’m wrong, or crazy to say what I’m going to say.

Well, if you do, let me know. But it will be at the expense of your own success.

You see, a lot of people DON”T write a book because they don’t think they’re enough of an expert to be writing one. Those same people believe that you DO have to be an expert in order to be qualified to write anything.

So those people — probably including YOU — are PASSIONATE about their field, COMMITTED to their purpose, yet are STUCK by their own silly mental rules in an immobilizing situation.

And so they go NOWHERE with their dreams, their businesses, or their lives.

Where does the problem come from?

It’s because they

Ebook Answers #9 – What Makes YOU an Expert?

The bad thing about this next question we’re going to tackle is that it’s a crippling one — until it’s answered.

In fact, this one question may keep more prospective authors — people like YOU — from writing their ebooks than almost any other question.

It probably stops more people than "how to make a pdf" or "how do I put up a website.’

And the bad part about this question is that it strikes at the heart of your business, your personality and your own identity.

So what’s this important question?

Here it is:
