To Be An Author

I’m at a speaker event in Los Angeles and have met about ten people so farm, who want to write a book. Can you imagine or have you ever been to an event where the room was filled with authors or people who want to write a book?
It is so inspiring to be around people who have dreams and aspirations. It makes me think about all the people who live their lives without direction or simply existing rather than living their life to the fullest.
When you have a choice to write your book and join the magical world of being an author, going out and inspiring others to live their dreams, why would you choose to do less?
It is a matter of choice. Even if your book doesn’t become a number one best seller on the New York Best Seller’s List, getting your book out into the world is a major accomplishment. I can’t imagine anyone writing a book just to get it on any best seller’s list, because the main goal of an author should be to become a spokesperson for their topic and generate an interest in others for their topic.

Attending Speaker’s Events

I’ll be attending an event in Los Angeles next week for Speakers. So, why would I write about a speaker’s event at an Author’s blog?
All authors become speakers if they are to become successful.
Being a speaker is one of the top requirements of an author. Whether it is to speak to a small group of ten or eventually ten thousand, speaking is the core foundation of an author’s exposure to new audiences. The most popular and financially rewarding activity for an author is to speak to groups of targeted audiences.
I love to attend speaker’s groups because the event offers concepts which are often inspirational and are productive and profitable. The people I meet at the events are most often the type of people I truly enjoy being with. Speaker’s generally see much more potential in the world than those who are not speakers.
I try to attend at least three or four events outside of the Bay Area every year and at least one needs to be a speaker’s event and another an author’s event. I have the greatest respect for the speakers and authors of the world. They are willing to put their passions to the test. They will stand for their principals. And when I attend events where authors and speakers are the primary audience, I am inspired by their stories and the paths they have taken to get where they have arrived.
