Writing articles is not as difficult as it sounds. You don’t have to be a professional writer, just write your article as if you were talking to a person sitting there beside you, one-on-one. Research your subject information and share what you know.

Write short articles around 500-1000 words. Then market your articles in different areas. Post you article on your web site, publish it in your Ezine, Submit your article to other ezines, offer as “free content” to other web sites, and/or compile a series of articles into a “free e-book bonus”.

Get some grit.

Stiffen your backbone.

Get out there and take some risks.

Birds of a feather may flock together, butrepparttar brave eagle soars alone.

Find something that will put a spring in your step. Something that makes you want to hop out of bed inrepparttar 117559 morning and start slaying some dragons.

Get fired up.

Even little Tommy Turtle knows if he wants to move forward, he has to stick his neck out.

Forgetrepparttar 117560 free lunch and start sticking your neck out. You may get hit onrepparttar 117561 chin a few times, but you'll know you're alive.
