The story of my book

Find out the story behind how and why these financial experts wrote books.

Mumbai based Amit Trivedi of Karmayog Knowledge Center (IFA trainer)

One day I got a message on Linkedin from a person claiming to be a representative of a publishing house. He asked me if I would be interested in writing a book. I was initially suspicious and thought this was a prank. However, I found that it was a genuine offer. Most of the initial talks happened over phone. I pitched various ideas and finally ‘Riding the Roller Coaster: Lessons from Financial Market Cycles We Repeatedly Forget’ was born.

I have been contributing articles to various media houses for years and when this opportunity came, I jumped at it. As a trainer, I felt that there is no better way of establishing my expertise in the subject.

Mumbai based, Steven Fernandez of Proficient Financial Planners (Advisor)

I was publishing some of the case studies of my clients in media. Many clients and colleagues encouraged me. They told me how useful my case studies were. One day, a client suggested that I compile all my case studies and publish it as a book. I liked the idea and my book titled ‘There's always a financial solution...And it always starts with a good financial plan’ was born.

One of the biggest advantages of writing a book is that it gives an advisor enough space to holistically approach a topic. Unlike an article where you write about a certain aspect of financial planning, a book helps you explore a topic in depth. For advisors particularly, writing a book will not just establish your authority on the subject, but will act as a prospecting tool.

Mumbai based P V Subramanyam of Subramoney.com (Financial coach)

I was already writing articles for moneycontrol.com. One day, the editor of the website suggested that I should put my ideas in a book. At that time, I was posting 500-word posts on my blog subramoney.com every day. My editor assured me that writing a book would be much easier.

I have written three books till date, ‘Retire Rich’, ‘You can be rich too’ and ‘Get rich – a wealth prescriptions for doctors’.
