David Letterman, Top 10 Lists, and Booklets

It was pointed out to me the other day that this is the time of year to see lots of "Top 10" lists printed in magazines, ezines, newspapers, and, of course the ongoing nightly antics of late night talk show host David Letterman. (Stay with me here, even if you are a fan of Jay Leno instead or you go to bed too early to have any clue to the reference at all.) So what's that got to do with booklets? Well, let's start from the end and work backwards here. David Letterman had his nightly comedic top ten lists compiled into a book and sold it. Hmmm, you see where I'm going with this already, don't you?

Many life and business coaches, among other solopreneurs, have been encouraged to create top 10 lists. So now there are lists of the lists, which can readily be compiled into one or more tips booklets quite painlessly. Where the lists may have been articles posted on your own or other people's sites pureful for publicity and exposure, compiling the lists into a tips booklet can convert what you've already done into a new source of income . Not bad, is it?

Go pull those top ten lists out and see what you've got. If you haven't started those yet, you'll probably find it easier to think of making a list of "10 ways to ..." and "10 tips for..." than starting off with the goal of writing 3,000 to 5,000 words.

Until next time,
