Business Resources for Authors

Don’t Miss Business Resources

Consider choosing one of the following books as your business reading for the quarter.

Professionals know they must spend time not only sharpening their trade skills (i.e. the writing craft for writers), but also enhancing their business-related skills. As a writer, if you aren’t reading one non-writing resource per quarter, you’re probably neglecting this aspect of your professional development.

Since it’s a challenge to keep up with worthwhile resources, we’ll share a few highly recommended books we’ve read recently.

The Accidental Creative by Todd Henry – Henry talks about how to develop “on demand” creativity and provides a unique method to quarterly, monthly and weekly planning.

The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick) by Seth Godin – Projects invariably become sticky and hard in the middle. Godin gives advice on knowing the difference between a project cul-de-sac and a mere “dip.”

Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard by Chip Heath and Dan Heath – The Heath brothers—through the use of real-world, compelling examples—show how to make critical internal and external changes. They also discuss the war between the rational and emotional mind and how to satisfy them both.

A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future by Daniel Pink – Pink is a former White House speech writer who has moved on to pen some fabulous non-fiction resources. In this book, he talks about the six new “senses” and how using them can help you be more successful in business and life.

Consider downloading a sample of each book and picking one as your business reading for the quarter.
