Regarding the use of pre-written content. When speaking with a customer about the 10-Minute Career Booster™ package, he said he would never use articles he didn’t conceive of and write from scratch. Naturally, I was curious, so I asked him, “Why?” "What will my friends, family, co-workers and customers say when they find out I don't write my own articles?" His response made me think; first I thought, “How would they know?” And then I wondered, “Why does our thinking and behavior change when we do things on the Internet? Why do we want to do everything ourselves?” Do you think offline businesses produce everything they sell? And do they create everything they use to produce that, and so on? Where do you draw the line at stopping to create your own stuff and just using what others created? What about store owners, for example? Do they manufacture everything they sell? No, they DON'T. They don't manufacture, produce, create ANYTHING! And what about the manufacturers of the stuff that those store owners sell? Do THEY create everything themselves? Of course not; they just use raw materials or parts that they either get from natural resources or from vendors. Even the news media uses syndicated articles and stories from wire services that are sent to thousands of subscribing news outlets. The pre-written articles in the 10-Minute Career Booster™ package are just like raw materials for you. Use them to create value for your customers. Think like an entrepreneur, not an article writer. Mix, match, combine, split, use as an idea resource, whatever … just use the 10-Minute Career Booster™ package pre-written articles. It's good for your business, and good for you. 4

That being said, if your blog readers should happen to discover that you are using articles that you have purchased instead of writing: all will still be appreciative of the good information you provided most will be happy for you when you become even more successful in your business more than a few will envy how you leveraged an opportunity into a successful method of promoting and marketing yourself and your product/service.

FINAL NOTE The goal of the 10-Minute Career Booster™ is not to make you the next great writer or the best blogger on the Internet. The goal is to position you as a credible asset to a limited universe: your clients, your prospects, your employers, your investors, your employees, your manager, your co-workers, your vendors and/or your competition. And the goal is to accomplish that positioning with a limited commitment of resources (time, money, etc.). Your motivation might be to shine in the eyes of your management or to stand-out in a job interview situation or to have a client comfortable with your level of commitment or to impress investors or as a tactic to support any number of specific self-promotional strategies. Whatever the motivation, the 10-Minute Career Booster™ could prove to be one of the tactics that brings you the greatest impact for a minor investment.
