  • Your signature story helps people get to know, like, and trust you.
  • Your signature story is your defining moment, not your entire biography or resume.
  • When you write your book, you gain more clarity and focus. Your ideas become sharper and easier to understand.
  • Your book can explain how you do your work so you can attract the people who like your process and repel the people who do not.
  • If you have issues that prevent you from writing, you can dictate your book.
  • Chances are you have plenty of content already created – articles, presentations, blog posts, and webinars – that you can turn into a book. You are not starting from zero.
  • Do you want to hire the guy who read the book, or do you want to hire the guy who wrote the book? Great quote from Jim Kerr.
