Reid also wrote another short note I wanted to share with you.

Will you give what it takes to become an author?

There’s nothing easy about becoming a published author. Writing for a novel or a blog takes time and commitment. Create a plan, stay focused and your dreams will come true.

“Publishers see this more often than they want to:  Authors who get publishing contracts, but expect everyone else to be responsible for their success.

Being a successful business leader and author means being someone who makes things happen. Successful business leaders and authors don’t make excuses about why they weren’t successful. They just keep trying until they are.” ~ Reid Tracy
