Your LNC business can grow by writing a book – have you thought that? Over the years, I hear more and more people say they want to write a book. Understand that ‘writing’ and ‘wanting’ are two vastly different things. One involves a desire and the other involves action. A lot of action.
If you are committed to writing a book, read on to discover how your LNC business can grow as you become a published author.
Writing a book can feel intimidating and overwhelming, however, once you get started, the process can be rewarding.
Book Sales Profits
It is a great feeling of accomplishment once your book has been published and you are making sales. Financial gains will allow you to re-invest the funds into your growing business. It is exciting to receive royalty payments from publishers or watch the deposits into your account from your Amazon sales. (I earn between $500-$700 a month in royalties from Amazon.)
However, you should understand that direct book sales are not the big money. It’s the gateway towards better rewards.
This is how your LNC business can grow by writing a book.
Gain New Clients
LNC authors can gain a higher level of respect and notoriety in their field. This respect can lead to paying clients who need your service. Even if you make $8.00 per hour for the time to write the book, you will make so much more financially in the form of new attorney clients.
Expand Your Expertise
When you have published your LNC-based book, you may very well become known as an expert in legal nurse consulting. In fact, you could become a desirable LNC expert witness. Yes, there are other nursing experts, but they probably have not written a book. That edge can benefit you and your career for many years.
When you consider all of the years you have time and money spent attending school and working as a nurse, it is impressive. However, the additional time spent researching for your book, expanding your knowledge, breaking it down, and writing the book, you have certainly earned being viewed as ‘an expert in your field.’
You will attract people wanting to hire you as a consultant.
Additional Exposure Opportunities
Exposure comes in a variety of forms. You will receive exposure when the book is published, you gain a wider audience through:
- Speaking Engagements – live or virtual
- Book Signings
- Podcasts – being a guest
These are just some of the ways you will experience exposure. Once you have published your first book, consider writing a follow-up book.
Expanding Your Reach Allows You to Become Recognized in Legal Nurse Consulting Faster
Writing a book is time-consuming. That is a big reason why many people may ‘want’ to write a book never start or complete a book. You took action and wrote your book. You are worthy of being looked upon as an expert.
