First 5: Step #4 Test Your Theory
Now that you’ve figured out who you’re writing your book for, how can you know that you are answering their questions and solving their problems? How can you be sure that you haven’t gotten the persona wrong? If people only buy books that they believe will help them, how can you convince them to pick yours over all the others out there?

First 5: Step #3 Pick Your Persona
As an aspiring author, chances are you want your book to do more than just sell – you want it to change lives. But a common mistake many aspiring authors make is that they write for themselves instead of the people who will buy their book.

In the second episode of the First 5 series, Coach Tam examines some of the ways that writers short-circuit their own progress, as well as how to overcome these limiting beliefs. Stop letting your mind talk you out of what you know is possible!
