It’s Labor Day: Are You Where You Want to Be In Your Career? Recharge Your Profession and Learn How to Write a Nonfiction Book
As someone that teaches people how to write a nonfiction book, I—like everyone—need a day off every now and then. But before you venture out for that last trip to the pool this weekend or enjoy some barbeque before back to school really kicks into gear, have you ever thought about the real meaning behind Labor Day?
Labor Day was created because workers felt they were spending too much time on the job. In the 1830’s, a time when manufacturing ruled, workers averaged 70-hour work weeks! Yikes! They were overly exhausted and had no free time to spend with their family. These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter eight-hour workday. They also focused on getting workers more days off, such as the Labor Day holiday, and reducing the workweek to just six days. (Source)
So while you’re enjoying your well deserved day off today, I’d like to ask you one question. Are you where you want to be in your career? Have the hours you’ve put in at the office panned out into the career you’ve always dreamed? Think for a moment before you respond. Many of us still spend countless hours working to climb the invisible corporate ladder, but is it working? If you’re not in corporate America, maybe you’re a coach or speaker that’s desperately trying to book speaking engagements to no avail, yet you have a powerful message that could change someone’s life if you had the opportunity to get that message out to the right audience.
If I’ve just described your career situation and you want to fix it, keep reading.
Write a Book and Recharge Your Career
Some people look at writing a book as something to check off their “bucket list.” While it feels good to mentally check off items on our bucket list, let’s not wait until we’re old to learn the value of writing a book! Let me explain.
Whether you’re a coach, speaker or business executive, you’re a different entrepreneur. You have the expertise and solutions that can help others. You know how to tell a story, and you have testimonials. You’re talented, and what you have to say matters. Perhaps you’ve been a mentor to others, and you know that what you know could benefit more than you can reach in one person. But do other people know how credible you are? Does you’re boss or audience know you’re an expert in your field? The truth is that you can increase your credibility, recharge your career and attract a following by writing your book. But without a book, you’re just another self-proclaimed expert. And we don’t need any more of those!
If you want to know how to become an author, you’ll want to work with an Executive Book Coach. When you have a book, it establishes you as an expert in your field, increases your credibility, and makes you attractive to your employer—all while building a personal following.
