Writing with Persuasion
How to win people over without losing your soul
New chapter alert!
Thanks to everyone who gave feedback on Chapter 7: Spheres of Context.
The general consensus is that the information is valuable, but the chapter was too short and didn’t share enough detail. Message received. Reworking it!

This week’s chapter is about something I’m passionate about: Persuasion.
Persuasion is an essential skill for every entrepreneur, but many people have “icky” feelings about it. I think it’s because folks confuse persuasion with manipulation.
In this chapter, I aim to show you how to be ethically persuasive.
Please feel free to leave comments in the doc. I’d love to know:
What do you love?
What don’t you like?
What is confusing?
When you’re done, I’d appreciate if you took 1 minute and 12 seconds to answer this 2-question survey (that’s the average time it took folks last week):
Note: Bouncing between chapters
You may notice that I’m jumping around chapters quite a bit. That’s because I’m in the middle or reorganizing the entire book. Originally the book was 10 chapters long. Now I’m leaning towards 20-25 shorter chapters, possibly broken up into 3-4 sections. This is all TBD. If you have any ideas, I’d love to hear them.
Thanks it for now. Thanks again for being on this journey with me. Happy writing and reading.
