Making more money is a great reason to write a non-fiction book. Besides selling books, most entrepreneurs and business professionals can leverage a book into higher income through consulting, coaching, workshops, paid speaking and so much more. But, there are many reasons beyond money to write a non-fiction book. In this video, Amazon best selling author Julie Broad explains.

Everyone talks about the credibility you'll gain from a book and the resulting boost to your income that comes from that.
And there's even a lot of money that can be made from selling books.
But, money isn't the only reason to write and publish a book.
Stick around, I've got seven reasons to write a book this year.
As I've talked about before, you can even make money selling your book despite what a lot of people will have you believe.
My first book, More Than Cashflow, put more than $63,000 in my pocket in just four years.
Only from book sales on Amazon and in book stores. That doesn't count the thousands of dollars in sales I made at the back of rooms when I spoke or the bulk sales from associations or companies that purchased my book in bulk to give away or to sell to their clients and members.
But, there's a lot of reasons to write a nonfiction book that go beyond dollars and cents or loonies and toonies, as we say in Canada.
We actually don't have pennies in Canada anymore.
Here's seven reasons to stop procrastinating and get that book done this year besides the money.
Number one, holding it in your arms is a special moment.
Number two, seeing it on someone's shelf is priceless.
Number three, get clear in your thought process.
You'll end up coming up with marketable phrases and processes like our five P's, which is pen to paper, process, publish, platform and promote.
Or the brand magic formula, M A G I C, that I developed when I wrote The New Brand You.
It's amazing how powerful it is to spend time thinking about what you do to explain to someone else. You'll find that you refine your business process, find trademarkable phrases and get clarity on who you can help and exactly how.
Number four, highlight your best client stories. It's a way to thank them and give them positive exposure, while also showcasing how you helped, what you do and sharing lessons learned.
Number five, legacy. I heard an author on a podcast say he stopped worrying about how he would leave a legacy for his kids once his book was published.
He knows his book is something that will live on and that's a really cool thing.
You don't have to write a book to mass market it.
Writing a book to share your family's story, so it lives on for many generations is a pretty powerful reason to write a book.
Number six, it's cheaper than therapy. Writing is proven to treat PTSD and many other things.
Writing about what has happened to you and how it's impacted you can do amazing things
for your health and since you're writing a book to help someone else learn a lesson from something you've learned, typically, you're also helping them while you help yourself.
Number seven, the people you'll meet once you're an author of a great book.
You kind of move into a new category of people often labeled as thought leader.
When I became a speaker, I started to move into this group and I became friends with other people I previously sought to learn from.
When I became a published author, I started to meet even more interesting people.
It's not necessarily that you meet better people, you're just meeting people doing bigger things.
These are innovators, risk takers and successful adventurers in business and beyond.
You become their peer and that's priceless. So, there's seven reasons beyond money
and money's still a darn good reason to write a book if you ask me. But, there's seven reasons beyond money to write and publish your nonfiction book.
