CFO Bookshelf is the new kid on the block in 2019. Over the course of its inaugural year, the site’s goal is to include upwards to 50 interviews with book authors who focus primarily on an audience of financial leaders and practitioners. These interviews will be text-based and through a future podcast launching later this year.
If you are a writer, here are a few of the questions I’ll be asking you if interested:
- Why did you write the book?
- Who is your book intended for?
- What makes your book stand out from other similar titles?
- What are the key themes?
- Now what? That is, what do you hope your readers will do next after reading your book?
Additionally, I’ll have some personal questions for you too:
- Which authors have inspired you in the past?
- What have you been reading lately?
- Do you have a ‘top list’ of books you recommend to friends, peers, and family?
When you wrote your book, were you not thinking about CFOs, Controllers, FP&A professionals, or accountants? That’s not a problem as all of us here should be reading books on leadership, management, behavioral sciences, marketing, sales, operations, and other books beyond our spheres of expertise.
Interested or intrigued? If you want to be interviewed, the best way to reach out is to connect with me on LinkedIn. For now, thank you for your work as both a teacher, mentor, and author. Also, check out some recent blog posts to familiarize yourself with the site.
