I never thought I’ll be an author
until someone told me I can do it.
Thanks, Chinkee Tan! Imagine if nobody pushed me to fulfill a lifelong dream that I had when I was a fresh graduate. I also wanted to write a book, in fact, some people told me that I was going to write one.
In my mind, I asked, how can that be possible? I am not a writer. That was the biggest hurdle that I had to face. The belief that I can’t write.
Remember the social media platform, Multiply. That is where I started writing my first blogs. I was so happy to see 20 people read my thoughts.
Then I learned about adding value to your blogs. Thanks, Carlo Ople! Always bring value to your content and people will keep coming back.
So I wrote down my thoughts. Spending hours on my blogs. Then I saw my readership doubled. Then tripled. Oh, I remember the day when more than 500 people read my blog post.
Then came the big push. I had been writing a book about knowing God’s will. I had finished the manuscript in 2010. Then the resistance happened. It stayed on my laptop for more than a year. I was afraid to push the publish button.
Late 2011, I couldn’t sleep. I decided to do something about the manuscript. I studied how to get it into Amazon. Might as well launch it worldwide.
Boom. Published after two hours!
And then…… in a week’s time How to Know God’s will for my Life was #1 in Amazon’s Christian living category. And then it was featured in Amazon.com’s sidebar.
But in the Philippines, I had another hurdle. An ebook author doesn’t have the same clout as a published author. I had to muster enough courage and faith to publish my book.
In 2013, one year after publishing my ebook on Amazon, I published Rich for Life, my first book on finance.
Since 2013, I have published two more books, Act Like a Man and the Great Sex book which I co-authored with my wife. Collectively, I have sold more than 25000 books which is a blessing from the Lord since I am not a full-time writer or speaker.
In light of God’s blessing, many people have asked how I authored my books and how I became a best-selling author. So in 2016, I designed a course on book writing called Write Now! Write your Book and Spread it Like a Virus. I conducted two seminars last 2016 that has produced best-selling authors yet I knew I also had to spread this message to many people who want to be an author.
So again, with enough courage and working overtime, I launched my Write Now course on Udemy. I am excited to share my journey with anyone who is willing to take that step of faith in starting their journey to become a best-selling author. In this course, I shared best practices and secrets on how I was able to spread my ideas to thousands of people worldwide without quitting my day job (which I absolutely love).
What are the requirements?
