My work continues to get awesome media mentions. This one is from Meridith Levinson at CIO.com. She titles it How Writing a Book Can Boost Your IT Career and Your Income.
“Jason Alba always wanted to write a book. When he started his own business, a service for job seekers called JibberJobber, in 2006, he finally had the time. One night in January 2006, while dining out, Alba shared his book idea—an explanation of how job seekers could use LinkedIn in their job search—with some friends who had books published. Alba says they loved the idea, and one of them offered to introduce Alba to his publisher and serve as his executive editor.”
This is really a fun story… you can read the article here. I know many of you are interested in writing a book. My advice? DO IT!
One of my favorite quotes from her article:
“Even if your book sucks, even if it’s small, even if it’s lame, just being the author of a book … gives you credibility.”
Even if it SUCKS?
Yes, even if it sucks.
I’m not saying to write a sucky book, but don’t put it off for years, while you get to “excellent,” when you can get it published sooner, at “good enough.”
Meridith, thanks for letting me share my story with your readers
