Getting Started with Your Writer Platform
Curated resources to help you start building your audience, your influence and your writing career.
There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
~ Marianne Williamson
If you’re new to Your Writer Platform, this is what I believe in:
1. Playing big. You are a writer. Obscurity is your nemesis, so find your voice and let the world hear what you have to say.
2. Providing you with the most extensive, practical and insanely useful content that can be garnered for each article. Then making it highly actionable by providing the steps for easy implementation.
3. Regarding your writing career as a business, and you as a professional. Published or unpublished, developing your public visibility and authority is largely (if not completely) up to you. Having the tools, hacks and skills to build your currency as an author is both powerful and necessary.
4. Creating momentum by developing a platform that works for you around the clock. While your platform spreads the word about who you are and what you’ve already accomplished, you can do what you do best: write.
