How can business shows enhance your writing career?


Hi everyone

Whether you are looking to start a career in writing or you have already made a career out of it. Going to business shows can put you in touch with businesses that can enhance your career. Anything from building a website to sell your books, to creating a promotional video for your book, getting you on the first page of Google, or to publish one of your future books.

Here’s a behind the scenes sneaky peek of The Business Show 2014.

I hope it gives you a flavour of the show.

I won a copy of Brad Burton’s latest book!


Hi everyone

I thoroughly enjoyed The Business Show today. I heard from a lot of successful business people and entrepreneurs. I am feeling excited, invigorated, challenged and inspired.

My highlight was winning a copy of Brad Burton’s latest book; Life. Business. Just got easier. Also,  having my photo taken with Brad and speaking to the new Commissioning Editor at Wiley about writing opportunities.

I have to give a special mention to Paul Lancaster, who is a Wiley published Author and did a great job at explaining how to implement social media into your business.

Looking forward to another exciting day tomorrow, to learn a ton of new stuff.

The Business Show – Here I come!


Hi everyone

Thanks to everyone who has left comments for me, and thanks for the positive comments about my videos and to those of you who have subscribed to my channel. It’s always a little scary trying something new and I wasn’t sure how you felt about videos in blogs but you seem to like them so I will continue. They are a bit rough around the edges but I just wanted to post natural videos because I try to always be true to who I am on this blog.

I am in London for The Business Show and I have had my phone switched off for most of the day due to low battery power and meeting up with a friend. The signal was bad on the train and it wouldn’t let me reply to your comments. I will get around to messaging back but it may be after The Business Show, as it is after midnight now and I have to get some sleep.

I have taken two more videos but my phone won’t upload them.

I can’t wait to see and hear some successful published authors speak at The Business Show, to gain valuable insight,  hints, tips and insider knowledge to pass on to you.
