We couldn’t be more thrilled or proud of Ron Kitchens, a Write Brilliant Alumni, whose book just released from Baker Book House: Uniquely You: Transform Your Organization By Becoming The Leader Only You Can Be.
We recently sat down with Ron to learn what he discovered in the writing and release of this incredible book.
Where did the idea for your book come from?
The pain I see in the leaders we coach and work with who are struggling to keep with an Instagram / Pinterest world of “perfect” that is not real and not their unique Journey.
What prevented you from writing your book sooner?
I lacked the clarity of how to tell and structure the journey for the readers.What’s one big lesson you learned in the writing of your book that would help fellow writers?
There is no one, right way. Just start telling the story. Editing comes at the end.
What’s one big lesson you learned in the marketing of your book that would help fellow writers?
Unfortunately you do have to have your own following to serve as your launch pad of readers. I like a lot of writers felt insecure asking my friends to buy until I realized that the content is a gift I am giving to the reader, they are paying for the paper.
What’s the biggest joy for you in seeing your book published?
The stories that people share with me about their dreams and struggles that in many cases, it is the first time they have told anyone.
Anything you’d like to add?
The fear of sharing your story is real but so is the opportunity to change lives. According to the New York Times, 81% of people believe they have a book in them and yet less than 1% actually write one. Simply writing a book makes you a hero to the world.
If you haven’t ordered a copy of Uniquely You, we encourage you to pick up a copy today. It will show you how to transform your organization by becoming the leader you can be.
