Episode 324: Helping Business Professionals Become Published Authors with Paul G. McManus


Are you a business professional or business owner who’s weighed up the idea of writing your own book? 

You’ve been raised in a world where you’ve been psychologically conditioned to trust a book, but now everything is digital and to add to the confusion, there’s AI!

Paul McManus is the co-founder of More Clients, More Fun and the author of ‘The Short Book Formula’. 

He’s in conversation with TDM’s Mark de Grasse, and together they’re exploring the reasons why you should publish your own book. 

This starts with seeing your book as a marketing tool and an authority builder.  

They promise that what you should do with that book to generate sales will be discussed in a ‘part two’ episode soon. 

For now, the emphasis is on the hard copy book as part of the marketing, lead generation, and sales process. 

A book can create a brand, facilitate trust, and it elevates your status. 

If you feel that actual writing is too much of a barrier to entry to your masterpiece, or that you’re just too embarrassed to convey your story, then Paul’s publishing process involves system creation, ideation, and reforming concepts into something that’s deliverable and scalable, will be right up your alley.
