Eight ways authoring a book can catapult your career to the next level

expert panel

Unlocking the potential of writing a book goes far beyond merely sharing knowledge and stories. As a New York Times bestselling author of eight books and the founder of Legacy Launch Pad, a collective that helps business owners publish authority-building builds, I've seen the power of influence that comes from publishing quality thought leadership. Not only can the process of publishing a well-crafted book land you speaking gigs around the world and reach new clients and partners, but it can also push your boundaries and help you find clarity in your own ideas. If you're a business leader or industry expert who is hesitant about authoring a book, I asked eight members of Fast Company Executive Board Book Authors, a community I lead, to speak from their experience about how their book(s) changed the game.

How to leverage your personal CVC


By leveraging investments to get smart about where your industry is heading, you'll be setting yourself up for success.
