When Writing Isn't Your Thing
Post date: Apr 27, 2014 10:42:44 AM
Since starting my business, creating my websites and the various blogs I have started over the years, I cannot remember how many times I have thanked my grandfather for encouraging me to get a good grasp of the English language.
My grandfather spent his life teaching people (he was a school teacher all his adult life and retired as a school principle) and my most vivid memory of him (he passed away in 1984) was that he constantly encouraged everyone around him to "hone" their grammar skills, because he was a firm believer that the ability to communicate clearly and concisely with those around you would open up many "doors" that may not normally be made available to you otherwise.
We are now at a point in time when my grandfather's belief could not be more true - with everything moving online now and more and more businesses "self promoting" via blogs and social media posts, the ability to communicate more effectively using the written word is now more important than ever (and I will forever be in your debt because of your guidance and tutorage "Pa").
Saying this, I am very aware that many people who run their own businesses have not been as fortunate as I have been to have people like my grandfather around them to help them with their writing skills and this is a big reason why I have interviewed Sean Kaye of Rapid Action Writing on this episode of BookPals Business Sanity.
You may remember that we spoke to Sean about his Rapid Action Podcasting course some episodes ago and the feedback from this episode was so good that we had to have Sean back to talk to our listeners about his copywriting services.
If writing isn't your "thing" and you know you have to start marketing more using the written word, check out this episode of BookPals Business Sanity because the information that Sean provides about his Rapid Action Writing services is invaluable.
As always, we hope you enjoy this episode of BookPals Business Sanity.
