You’ve worked really hard at growing your business over the years, and you are beginning to gain some recognition for all of your hard work. You are being asked to speak at conferences, you are being sought out for interviews and panel participation - and then the day comes: a publisher approaches you to write a book in your area of expertise. It is an honor to be recognized for all your hard work and part of the reward is the fulfillment of a dream: to publish a book in your chosen industry, where you will be seen as a subject matter authority in your area of expertise, whether it’s tech or tamales. Authoring a book (or several books) is very time consuming, and balancing the task of authoring a book, staying within a publishers time line requirements while still maintaining and running your day to day business is requires skills of organization, prioritization, delegation and patience! Lisa Sabin-Wilson is the owner of a busy and successful web design and development company: E.Webscapes. While maintaining the day to day operations of her business, she is a regular public speaker at national conferences and she is the author of several books in her area of expertise, WordPress and web design. Since 2006, Lisa has written a total of 7 books for Wiley Publishing and, in this session, she shares her experiences in balancing books and business without completely losing her mind, business, family or friends.
