What's Up Family,
We are looking for a few good men to co-author a book
together. That's right a book containing the ideas, and
points of view of men on a variety of topics.
Can you see this? Can you do this? Picture this; Dad's
On Duty talking, and writing on a variety of topics? Open
topics: "World Views", "Peace", "The Economy", "War",
"State of the black family", The Environment, Public
Safety, Joy, Pain, "Relationships", Writing a book,
Organizing your life, "Etc". The subject matter is endless.

Why? Good question. Glad you asked. Writing a book together
will give each of us an opportunity to bond, grow, share, and
document some of our experiences, and opinions with the rest of
the world. We will be in  position to become authors, and began to
legitimize ourselves, and our organizations. We will raise the bar,
and set the new standard in which other groups will soon follow.
Speaking engagements, book signings, conferences, all sorts of
opportunities. Hint, Hint, Clue, Clue "Make Some Extra Money
Talking and Writing." (These are things we all like to do anyway.)

The Advantage of writing a book together opposed to each individual
doing it alone is awesome. It shows a united front, a collaboration of
men utilizing a book to reach an audience of people. We have within our
group many men who have already written books. Now is the time to
empower each of us with this new skill set. Most of us have within us a
book already, however we won‘t write it, unless we are encouraged to.
Hint, Hint, this is why we can all rise up together each one teaching one,
overcoming some of the challenges, and weaknesses that we all face.

In about 90-120 days, if each of us does our part, stick with the
program, complete the assignments, etc. We will have a finished
product. (A book) A tangible object that if only for your edification alone
would far exceed your not completing it.

If we only sell one copy each, at least our opinions will be out there
somewhere in the universe. I personally will approach this from a
position of personal growth, and development. I see all sorts of

If we each approach this situation from a open minded position, who
knows where it will lead us, or what doors it will open? The opportunities
are endless.

This is going to be a wonderful experience of growing, learning and
experiencing something together.

The time period: August 3, 2009-December 31, 2009. About 120 days.
We will be focusing on orientation, organizing, brainstorming, writing,
critiquing, editing, publishing, branding, marketing, promoting, public
relations, fund raising, prospecting, selling, speaking, etc.

The Cost? To do this project successfully, and in order is going to
require some money. Our proposed budget requires an initial
investment $250. It could be higher.

We each will have about 90 days to acquire those funds. We will work
together to assist each man in reaching his financial obligation and
accomplishing this task.

What do we need? Head-shots, personal biography's, domain names,
websites, social media sites, pay pal accounts, marketing material,
training, workshops, publishing of books, etc.

To get our book writing experience off to a proper start we need to
establish the purpose of our chapters within the book. Your Why? Why
are you doing this? Is it to change lives, make lots of money, generate
more sales for your business, or organization, give you more credibility
or maybe to give you speaking opportunities? Whatever it is write it
down and clarify it.

Sometimes a book is a means to an end. Is there a bigger picture for
you? Now is the time to determine what it is. Your purpose may change
how you write, and structure your topics. Go ahead think about it and
email me with your purpose.

Writing changes everything for me, for you, and everybody else within
our circle of influence

This is an awesome group of men, with an array of talents, and
capabilities. More men will come later, and that is good. However, we will
have a cut off date after our orientation period. (30 days)

Our homework assignment: READ the book "The Ultimate Business
Card" Matthew D. Miglin. Go to the website:www.expertselfpublishing.
com, download the audio presentation, tour the website, and seek out
the information that is available.

Our next meeting will be next Monday August 31, 2009. 7:00-9:00pm Oz
Pizza Restaurant downtown East Point. We will physically meet once a
month, all other training will be done over the phone, or via the Internet.

I also encourage each of you to get on the DOD Sunday night call, or at
least play it back on the playback line. (218-844-8799) (1070958#) We
will be focusing more, and more on Training, Informing, Mobilizing,
Educating ourselves, and others to the ways of executing a better life
