Experiences, both good and bad, can lead us to wealth and fame if we let them. We can accomplish this fame through a thrilling book. Books help develop our position in the online world. If you aren’t yet aware, you should know that the internet is the future of fame and wealth. Those who ignore it tend to get left behind.
A book isn’t as easy to sell as some might expect. However, I believe anyone who has experienced anything interesting in life has a story in them. All it takes to get our story out is the time, motivation, and tips needed to get started on writing it.

Tips for Starting Your Book
The first thing you need is a topic. There are many things you could go for but here’s a list of questions that should help you figure out the best topic for your book:
- What have you been through that others could relate to?

Answer all of these questions and you should already have the basics of your topic right there. Don’t pick up your pen just yet though! We’re not quite ready to start writing yet.
