Life is a journey. Life is a story, when the journey and experienced told to others. Some people share their stories through meetings and over coffee. Some share their stories during their speech or training sessions.
For most people, they write their story. It is not necessary in a specific book to be published, as sometime it always come through social media. Among all, FB and blogs are the choices of many.

From a novel they created movie. Then move on to merchandising which has its own range. From items which can be sold online, moving on to materials that they can manufactured and sold offline too.
From a story for children, they created animation and later goes beyond the production of its own including mobile apps. They move on into merchandising which range from toys, activity books, souvenir, teaching aids and the list goes on.

A business person might be expected to write books about business and management. A mother is expected to write about motherhood and parenting. A teacher is assumed to write on teaching, its pedagogy and philosophy.
Yet, there are some who did things differently. CONTENT has remains to be the same KEY RESOURCES of all the above. It depends on which CONTENT that one decided to leverage and work on.
Personally, my experience in business related very much into children, parenting, teaching and training. Business management is what I like doing and some said what I am good at.
But deep inside, years of experience that hold behind the wall of management is deeply about people. And for that, being a mother, teacher and learning facilitators for teachers and children, one thing remain the same – PEOPLE.

In business, content used for marketing purposes need to be planned well. Most of the time, we do it with fun, build it and keep it rolling. Somehow, another team will set the tone to get the revenue to come in.
