  • I am a great starter and a great finisher. I needed to find a co-author who was a great middler.
  • Working with a co-author gives you a sense of accountability. You know who does what and when.
  • It’s important to have an audio book because executives like to listen when they drive. It’s an amazing way to learn things.
  • Have a clear vision of what you and your co-author are creating together. Create an outline that shows who needs to do research.
  • Find comparable books you want to model your book on – format, size, length, how many chapters, what works and what would make the reader want to continue reading.
  • Find a co-author you know, like, and trust.
  • Find a co-author who is different than you. I find the funny side of things. I needed to find someone who could give it weight.
