Do you want to see your name in print?

 

Imagine what it would feel like to see your article on The Huffington Post, in Cosmopolitan or a national newspaper. Can you feel that excitement in the pit of your stomach? Imagine seeing your name as a published author. Now picture yourself sharing your success with your friends, family and clients. 

If you're dedicated to putting the effort in to raising your business profile and taking your writing to the next level, you need to get published online, in print or both. It not only adds credibility to your business, blog or website, but when you finally see your very own article in a magazine, it gives you a wonderful sense of achievement – trust me, I know. But it can also be pretty tricky to get your writing ‘out there’ into the big, scary world of publishing, never mind getting over writer’s block. What should you write about? How can you get started? What do you do with something you’ve actually written and where should you send it?

 

How many times have you sat at your computer and stared at a blank screen? Do you have an idea that keeps going round and round in your head but never makes it on to the page? Perhaps you’ve written something and hidden it away because you didn’t have the confidence to move forward with your project.

Whatever sector you work in, being published adds a certain credibility to you and your work. People are impressed! And more than just that, it is a fantastic way to springboard into more publicity and get in front of the people you want to reach. Pretty cool, huh?

 

I want to tell you that this is a completely possible and realistic dream to have, and if you’re serious about your business or your love of writing, you need to commit and get your voice out there!

I’m Rachida, a copywriter and journalist, and I’ve worked in publishing for almost 10 years. Not only does that make me feel rather old, it also makes me feel pretty certain that I know all about the writing process, and what comes after.

I’ve written in a range of different publications covering all sorts of topics, from European affairs, to lifestyle pieces to business and ethics. Writing is my life and I love the sense of pride I get when I see my name in print, even now.

In my entrepreneurial journey, I’ve come across so many lovely people who feel lost, lack confidence and don’t have faith in themselves when it comes to writing. They are overwhelmed, think it’s not for them and decide to focus on growing their business in another way.
