I am writing for both selfish reasons and generous reasons.
The selfish reason is that as I write, you will perceive me as an expert: someone who knows what he is talking about. And when you need help with your online business, you will feel confident to ask me.
Another selfish aspect is simply training. When I sit down to write, I have to put my thoughts in order. I make a mental plan; I consider what the message that I want to share is, why would you care, and how can I make it interesting. Writing gives me clarity, and it also forces me to consider the value of my processes.
The generous reason for writing is to teach. My aim with each post is for you to feel you have learned something useful that you can apply in your online business. Reading this post, you may feel inspired to write too. And a tip I have is: don’t write about you. Instead, write for your customers or the people you want to serve.
I will end this with a thank you to my brother. He is the one who first encouraged me to write and got me over: “my writing has no value” mindset.
