This is what happened.
I released my brand new e-book, "7 Common Mistakes People Make in QuickBooks ...and How to Fix Them!" ...
...and it wasn't finished. (I THOUGHT it was, but it really wasn't.)
After so many people downloaded it, I read through it and realized that I should have added some...
**smack on the forehead** (Duh - why didn't I think of this BEFORE it was released??)
I really sweated over this because I thought, "I CAN'T change it - so many people have already downloaded it!"
But that's one of the beautiful things about publishing online - additions and corrections are so easy to make.
Now don't get me wrong. The CONTENT of the book is nearly identical - in other words, the actual "7 common mistakes" are exactly the same, and the paragraphs are the same or nearly the same as before.
What I teach has not changed, so if you don't want to check out the new version, I totally understand.
But I realized that many people reading the ebook may be brand new to QuickBooks. They may not be able to visualize what I'm teaching.
And because I'm getting more and more rabid about being as helpful as I can for QuickBooks users, I realized, too late, that I had to add those screen shots.
So I bit the bullet and added them. I just knew I had to do the right thing, even though it was uncomfortable.
And since I was already working in the book, I decided to add some very useful active links, and SOME of these are affiliate links. This means that if you click on them and buy something, I get a commission from the sale.
I think it's like 2 or 3 of them, and you probably won't want to click them anyway.
AND since I was already there I made a few other very minor changes, like editing a typo, rearranging the beginning part, and altering the title slightly.
The second most important change, after the screen shots, was that I added link at the very end of the book so you can...
I want to make things as easy to use and helpful as I can.
The only way I can do that is if you let me know what I did right and what I did wrong.
What sucked, what was great. What made you want to tear your hair out, what you really "got."
You get the idea.
So after you read the book, get involved by leaving some feedback.
Getting involved will help me help you. Ok?
I thought about just uploading the new version without telling you that I changed it. But that didn't feel right either.
What do you think? What would you have done if you were me?
***NEWS FLASH: Some Guy You Probably Never Heard of Endorsed My E-Book***
Yea, this CPA in Washington state endorsed my e-book. And of course it happened AFTER I released it to you. That's what I get for jumping the gun.
Anyway this guy is an aquaintance of mine. We're both authors over at Ezinearticles.com. He writes a lot of really good tax and accounting articles over there.
One time he left a very complimentary comment on one of my QuickBooks articles there. I felt so happy getting a compliment like that from a CPA.
Because he was so kind, I decided to publish one of his articles on my site.
His name? Stephen L. Nelson.
You might be wondering, "Stephen L. Nelson? Who the heck is he?"
Oh, he's just this guy who wrote the whole series of books called...
QuickBooks for Dummies
Quicken for Dummies
Excel Data Analysis for Dummies
You MIGHT have heard of them.
You can read his endorsement here.
So if you think you want to check out the screen shots and leave some feedback, go here to download the new version of the e-book.
Last thing: a lot of people have been asking me if I have any QuickBooks training products, so I've been thinking about how to put one together.
I'll be in touch to talk to you more about this, and to get YOUR input.
Talk again soon,
