Bernadette Johnson-Hairl, President of By The Book Accounting says, “The most popular question I have been getting lately is: WHEN DID YOU HAVE TIME TO WRITE A BOOK? After being asked that question multiple times, I began to really give it some thought. My realization is, I simply made time to get it done. It’s been my desire to write this book for three years and all I had were excuses (not reasons).

Then one day, someone asked me a few questions: He said, “Do you really care about small business owners?” I said “YES!” Then he said, “Do you believe your book will change lives?” I said, “Yes.” Then he said, “Well why haven’t you written it?” That last question hit me like a ton of bricks. It was at that moment that I realized I could continue to make excuses or I could make progress. I knew I could not make both.  So I “scheduled” time to write.  I invested six weekends of my time and I got it done.”

    she actually wrote her book in six weekends ?
    wow she's organized. how long did it take for the proofreading and editing phase before publishing ?
    she sounds like she really knew what she was doing.

    No doubt this must be a must read.
    thanks for the heads up

    @RE - POD313 TechTips ~ Oh yeah. I already have my copy! :-)

    @RE-POD313 - the proofreading and editing process took 5 weeks. Bernadette sent chapters as they were ready, and I started editing. Of course, we had to do a final read as a complete book, but the "edit as you go" helped us get into production by the mid-October deadline.
