At times, I struggled as I was writing my book. I had one friend who shared the early release on Reddit, where it got creamed. I mean, seriously if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it… but that’s a topic for another time. Nice or not, it did cause me to think about what I was doing. Why does what I’m writing matter? Is it important?
The negativity helped me reach deep and focus. I had clarity when writing. Clarity about who I was writing for, and clarity about what I hope to share.
Still, today I got more clarity reading this tweet:
My message is not about the “technology” (or features) of dividend investing. It’s about the behavior of investors (or rather of non-investors). I attack the things that keep people from investing in the first place. Sure, if you invest in other ways and want to learn about dividend investing you will learn something from my book. That’s not the deep focus I kept as I was writing though. There are a lot of books (or online blogs and newsletters — be sure to start with Sure Dividend, my favorite dividend investment newsletter) to help you with learning about dividend investing.
If you don’t know where to start or are too unsure about how to “do it right” please sign up for book release updates because my book is written just for you.
