This one is interesting because many of my friends and clients wrote either a business self-help book geared towards helping people in some business-related aspect or they wrote a personal development / personal growth, self-help book.

The reason I bring this up is because for those friends and clients of mine who wrote ONLY business-related books, I said to them, “Where is your personal growth and development book?”

Most of them looked at me with some strange expression on their face. Why they looked puzzled at such a simple question I don’t know. Well, here’s why I brought up the question:

  1. They wrote one book, why stop? Write another one!
  2. They have one book bringing in some kind of extra income (hopefully); get hungry and write a second book to bring in more income.
  3. Two books can be sold in a bundle faster than one, sometimes. Since they’re both your books, you keep all the profits. If each book cost only $3.00 to print and sold as a bundle for $30 and then an audio version of each book is included, the profit becomes $24 per sale. Make 4 sales and walk away with $96 in your pocket! Sell 20 bundles that day at a trade show or seminar and make $480. NICE!
  4. They know a lot about business-related matters. I’ll bet they know of something to write about that might help people in their personal lives. That’s what I know and why I write for both business and personal growth.

So you see, these are some of the motivating factors that go into writing a personal growth and development or self-help book. Here are more that I wrote that fall into this category:

Who's Hungry? (Cookbook) by Bart Smith

B.S. The Book by Bart Smith

Motivate Yourself To Succeed by Bart Smith

Find The One For Me by Bart Smith

Laws Of The Bedroom by Bart Smith

Watch Out Ladies by Bart Smith

As you can see, I like to write for the personal development, self-help genre. I have several more books in progress that I’m writing in this category.


Watch the video below to see all the personal development, self-help books that I’ve written and let them inspire to write your own. Remember, they don’t have to be lengthy (in page count).

So, what do you think? What kind of personal development, self-help book could you write? Think about it and take action! Remember, every day you don’t have your book, you’re missing out on potential extra income. So, hop to it!


Let me know if you need my help. Together, on the phone, for example, we might be able to come up with your subject matter to write about, a title, sub-title, even the table of contents. When that’s finished, you’ve got your writing assignments to get to. See how that works?
