Have you ever considered writing a book? Could it fit into your schedule? Are you even qualified? Can anyone write a book? The answer to these questions is easy— absolutely. It wasn’t until Abbey read the book The 4% Fix by Karma Brown that she realized writing a book is possible, and maybe even a passion of hers.
It’s no surprise that as multi-passionate business owners, we seem to attract other multi-passionates. Kerrie has been a friend of ours for years and when we heard that she also wants (and is actively) writing a book, we knew we needed to have her on the podcast. We needed to hear how the process has been going and how she made this dream a reality.
Whether you’ve considered writing a book or the thought has never crossed your mind, we urge you to listen in! We truly believe there is a story in everyone. It might be your season to share it with the world.

Book Writing Resources & Tips That Helped Kerrie
Kerrie is the first to admit that she didn’t lean into many resources at all when she chose to start writing her book. The truth is, you don’t have to be an expert to write a book— anyone can write a book! You just need to have the passion and drive to get started.
- Reference books that you love. How are the chapters structured and organized? Ask yourself why you loved reading these books. Take tips from these authors that you already know and love as you begin your own book writing journey.
- Friends who are also considering writing a book. Can you team up with someone for accountability purposes? Traveling a new journey like this can always be more helpful with a friend by your side.
- Smart Passive Income Podcast: his specific episodes on ‘how to write a book’ have been extremely helpful for Kerrie. His best piece of advice for Kerrie was “outline your chapters and then write each section of your book as you were writing a blog post.”
- Don’t complicate it! Use Google Docs and just get started.
