Three Effective Methods for Writing Your Autobiography

It's taken years to get where you are today, and you want to share your journey by writing your autobiography. An autobiography is more than just your life story. It's a tool that entrepreneurs and business professionals can use to grow their businesses. Here are three options for getting your autobiography from brain to paper.

Three Tips to Consider

  • Sit down and write it. No one knows every little detail of your life story better than you do. If you've got the time (and the writing skills), pull up a desk chair and get started! There are no barriers to entry here - but just because you're a leader in your industry doesn't mean you're a great writer, and after writing your autobiography, you've still got to publish and market it.
  • Hire a ghostwriter.A ghostwriter is a professional writer who will spend time with you, listen to your story, and then work on writing your autobiography based on your discussions. This is a time-saving option that can lead to a well-researched, well-written book. Just remember, you get out what you put into it. You'll want to do your own research, too, so you select a ghostwriter who will do justice to your life.
  • Talk Your Book. This pain-free way to create a book puts your life story in the hands of a project editor, who will interview you over the phone. An editorial team will take the ideas you've discussed with your project editor and bring them to life in a manuscript that's ready for design and launch.
