I recently read a book called Multiple Streams of Income, by Robert Allen. He discusses 10 different ways to build up multiple income streams. One particular income stream I was very interested in is what he calls infopreneuring. This is providing information to others as an expert in a particular area. In this industry, it would be successful entrepreneurs such as Guy Kawaski, Robert Kiyoski, and even the author of the book I was reading, Robert Allen (who I actually never heard of until my friend gave me the book). These are people who have made millions being entrepreneurs and now make millions more teaching others how to follow in their footsteps. This comes in the form of books, DVDs, cds, tapes, newsletters, seminars, games, ect.
One thing that really caught my attention was what Robert said about writing. He has written many successful books and continues too do so even when it gets difficult. He said if he could boil down all of the income over the years from his books and other writings he has gotten a return on his investment of about $20 for each word he has written.
My goal is to reach that achievement of $20 per word. I am passionate about being an entrepreneur and helping others get through the fog of becoming one and staying successful. The more I write, the more I start to brainstorm about new ways to make learning how to be an entrepreneur fun and inspiring. Ultimately, I want to be that infopreneur that Robert is talking about in his book. I want to build a one of a kind informational system from the ground up, an educational network where entrepreneurs guide other entrepreneurs.
Anyway, this is one of the many additional articles I plan to start contributing to the website. At $20 per word, I will eventually end up making about $9,300 for this article alone.
So how do you make $20 per word? I suggest you do the same. Take a moment every day from your schedule and write down your thoughts and ideas. Believe that every word you write down is worth something more than just words on paper. To take a line from the movie Boileroom, "Act as If." "Act as if" you are getting paid for every word you write. Even if your goal is not to make money from your writings, I believe it will pay off more handsomely than you might expect.
I invite you to write and share your thoughts with our viewers. If you are an entrepreneur from anywhere in the world and you have a story to share, email it to us. Email us your Article!
