Share your Passion – book review
Share your Passion
Today I am reviewing Share Your Passion (laughing) always forget that name, by Renee Hasseldine.
And I received this book as a gift when I did a course run by Andrew Eggleton, the speaking coach.
He had a couple of these books on hand, and I was lucky enough to receive one. Now for those of you who you might recognize Renee, there, that’s Renee. One of the things I think that Renee is most famous for, and nobody will argue with me there, is her passion. So, share your passion, yeah,
that sounds just like Renee. So this book really is about creating ways to leverage your knowledge.
She’s got these little schedules or infographics throughout, and she talks really about creating a package,
like an online package, an online workshop, that kind of thing. Which is really, the principles are not only for creating online workshops. You could use it for, if you were creating a talk that you had to give.
You could use it if you were creating a webinar. You could use it if you were writing a book. And the thing that I like about it is that she breaks it down into different stages. So, it’s quick, it’s
pithy, that’s not lots of, lots and lots and lots of writing. You know like reading a normal book, she’s broken it up into lists, and principles, and summaries. But my favorite thing about the book, are these.
And since she’s written the book, she’s become a great promoter of infographics. And one of the courses she teaches actually, is on how to create your own infographics, and how they can help
you in your business. And now, the first time, I must confess, the first time I picked up this book,
I just flipped through (laughs) to the infographics, and that’s all I read. And I only came back later
and read the rest of it. But because I had checked on the infographics, I knew that it was exactly what I needed. I had already created the beginning part of my course, so that part I was fine with. But, towards the end, the more advanced stuff towards the end, I was going, oh those are the final pieces that I’m missing from my puzzle. And in fact when I read this book, I had just completed writing this one, with my husband, which is called What is IP, What is Intellectual Property. And I had not created any infographics. But after I read Renee’s book, I did, I actually went back, I had to hold the publication
of my book, because I had the idea from hers, as to how important the infographics could be.
So, (laughing) my book. Renee’s book. Share Your Passion, really influenced how the final version
of my book looked like when it came out. And I think, well I know for a fact, that it’s much better at
connecting with my audience now that it’s got those infographics in it. So, infographics are not the
only thing that Renee teaches. It’s a step-by-step guide on how to get the knowledge that’s in your head, and create a book or a course. It is a very good book if you’re the kind of person who has a lot of knowledge and information and experience, but you’re not quite sure how to pass it on to people,
other than in your one-to-one sessions. So if you’re wanting to create a book or a course, yeah, I recommend this one, Renee Hasseldine. If you would like your book reviewed by me, please let me know, slots are filling up fast. My name is Cathryn Warburton, and I am the Legal Lioness.
