Write a Book, Run a Business & Have a Life - NSA-CT 3/26 Meeting

Suzanne Bates, CSP: Write a Book, Run a Business & Have a Life!National Speakers Association - CT Chapter (NSA-CT) Meeting
Monday, March 26, 2012, 6-9 pm

A Workshop for Professional (and Aspiring) Speakers on Finding the Time, Energy and Resources to Write and Publicize a Best-Selling Book
As every professional speaker is aware, a book is the fastest, most potent way to establish your unique professional expertise, create a brand name for yourself, and drive more business to your door. Perhaps you've never written a book and would like to get published; or, you've written a book but haven't found the time and energy to publicize it enough, or heaven-forbid, write another one. One thing is certain; your book isn't going to write itself, and your business won't run itself while you write. What to do?

Come to this meeting and learn how to finally get your rear end in the seat and get that book done. Suzanne Bates, CSP, best-selling business author, speaker, and CEO of Bates Communications, will share the proven strategies that helped her publish her third book, Discover Your CEO Brand (McGraw Hill 2011). Suzanne says "If you're a speaker, you're already a writer!" and she will help you finally translate all your expertise, and desire into a book you are proud of - one that differentiates you as a speaker and expert, and creating tremendous marketing gravity.

Among the strategies Suzanne has used, that she will share, are:1. The power of "knowing why"
2. Find your "third" place
3. Early morning inspirations
4. Chapter bucket strategy
5. The big "O"
6. Color coded writing time
7. The art of saying "NO"

Among the discussions we'll have will be how to look at your real motives for writing, make time for the "right stuff," and get your end game clearly in mind. Suzanne's first book, Speak Like a CEO, is in its 11th printing and is published in five languages. She credits this book for transforming her business, helping her attract dozens of Fortune 500 clients and build her company into a multi-million dollar consulting/coaching/training practice inspite of the fact that Suzanne has a family, and a business with 11 employees, she was able to get her CSP, be president of NSA New England, and raise a now-college age daughter while writing these three books. She shares this not because she's superhuman at all, in fact, quite the contrary; she believes every speaker can achieve whatever they want to achieve. She will inspire you to have a better conversation with yourself about how to get it done.
