If you are in a professional field, being a columnist for a publication will offer immense benefits for you. Each professional field is flooded today, as we become more and more of an over-credentialed society. Those who stand out in their fields are often those who promote themselves as much as possible.
My book, You Can Be A Columnist, is once again, back out on the market. It is for anyone who aspires to being a columnist, whether to write an informational type of column or a creative one. The book is a classic, having been a Writer’s Digest Book Club Selection.
Check it out on Amazon.
It demystifies the process of generating column ideas, writing guest or regular columns, and getting them published. Numerous rewards and recognition will open up for you as you make yourself known to the public. Speaking engagements and consulting work are just the tip of the iceberg.
Never discount an opportunity for advancing yourself. Investigate whether this is something you would enjoy and whether you can spare the time.
