In his blog, Marc Sparks asks a poignant question. “Why would anyone write a book?” The two most obvious reasons are quickly mentioned: money and ego. People want to sell books, earn cash, and get their name out there. Of course, other more positive reasons to write a tome exist as well.
Using a book to give back to other people is most assuredly a source for motivating authors. Upon achieving a high level of success, a certain segment of the entrepreneur class choose to share their wisdom with others. In doing so, they do their part to aid others in overcoming hurdles and achieving greatness. Someone who has attained success knows a thing or two about how to get ahead. Rather than remain selfish and keep such things secret, good-hearted entrepreneurs and business professionals opt to share what they have learned.
Mark Sparks is one of those people who is focused on sharing his knowledge. The book he has crafted is definitely a viable and valuable way to do this. Checking out his blog reveals a bit more on his motivations and the book itself.
