Author Tip Transcript

If you have an idea for your book in mind, start writing it down. Start bullet pointing

You can use a program/software like Workflowy. It’s a free program that allows you to make bullet point lists without anything fancy so formatting doesn’t distract you. Or, if you’re on an iPhone you can use the Notes feature. All Google and Android phones have some kind of notes function as well.

If you’re thinking you want to share your story, impact the world, build your business, it all starts with compiling your thoughts.
