francine picYou can do this — even if you’re not a writer.

Write the story  you have been thinking of — your life’s path,  your family’s history  or commemorate a significant person(s) in your life.

I am an author, ghostwriter and public speaker. I give workshops as the one below on how to write one’s life story.

I am launching a six-week course at Unity, 2222 Bush St. near Fillmore Street. The dates are Thursdays, May 5, May 12, May 19 (not May 26), June 2, June 9, and June 16. Classes will last from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

The cost is $125, payable to me, Francine Brevetti. I can be contacted at Francine@FrancineBrevetti.com. 415 397 7830.

The course focuses on focusing – getting a clear idea of the manuscript you want to write, learning how to write it and keep writing it.

I provide wisdom on how to get through challenges that memoirs and autobiographies or any nonfiction work can present.

This course will lead participants to the satisfaction of knowing they can do this.

Have you ever written a loved one’s obituary?

Or maybe you want to write your own?

FB_portrait3On May 26, I will be delivering a step-by-step guide to writing an obituary – whether your own or someone else’s – at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.

It will most likely be a stressful time if you’re charged with the responsibility of writing the death notice of a relative or close friend.

These are some of the topics I will discuss:

  • The proper format
  • The difference between writing your own and writing someone else’s
  • How to coordinate with your relatives
  • How to coordinate with the newspaper that is publishing your obituary and the mortuary you maybe using.
  • Why you may write your own obituary to save your relatives the stress of doing so.

The Commonwealth Club at 555 Post St. is the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum.

Join the networking event t at 4:45 pm before my remark start at  5:15  pm.

stock-photo-19668496-noir-style-journalist5 STEPS To Write The Book To Boost Your Business—

Even If You’re Not A Writer

The most obvious reason for writing a book about your business is to establish yourself as an expert and promote your services and products. You want to sell and you hope your book will help you do just that.

More and more entrepreneurs understand the stiff competition they face in marketing and promoting their products and services. A book with your name on it is obvious evidence that you are a master of your area and well-placed to give advice to readers on how to make choices in your field.

Envision yourself offering a book with your name on it to a prospect instead of or in addition to your business card. Doesn’t that make a statement?

Envision yourself selling your books at events and venues where you speak. Won’t that make you feel good? And how about selling it at events where you speak? More satisfaction and more sales.

Besides attracting more clients, you will gain visitors to your website. Your book might lead to other books, such as a workbook or audio/video media.

When you have authored a book, other things happen: you feel great about yourself. You attract media attention. Your book can inspire a reporter, broadcaster or blogger to ask you for an interview.

You are now among the tier of people who can be invited to panels and symposia along with competitors and other authors.

You have not only established yourself as an expert, you have strengthened your credibility and your brand.

This blog is meant as an introduction to an upcoming e-book entitled,

5 STEPS TO WRITE THE BOOK TO BOOST YOUR BUSINESS

Even If You’re Not a Writer

This e-book will sell for $9.95 upon publication.

Or you can order it now for only $7.75.
