Successful authors are on a mission

Bob Baker on The CAP Podcast

In this excerpt from the second episode of The C.A.P. Podcast, guest Bob Baker, a full-time author for 10 years, talks about the difference between action steps and goals … something many authors sometimes get confused about … as well as the key to turbo-charging your actions and goals.

Bob talked about the mission statement … why you have these goals and are taking these action steps … and why it can take your business, goals and actions to a higher level. He says that a mission statement turbo-charges your goals and actions because it defines your big why.

Mission statements follow a basic formula of who do you help and how do you help them. Here are a couple of examples:

  • Bob’s Mission: To inspire and empower musicians, writers, and creative entrepreneurs to make a living and make a difference in the world.
  • Carma’s Mission: To empower entrepreneurial women authors and writers to build a creative, authentic and profitable business based on their core talents and passions.

A mission statement is a broader vision for your business and is bigger than just you and your bottom line. A mission statement expresses the mark you want to make in the world.
