Your content is your livelihood.
So whether you're using your content to pull in traffic or you're selling content to fill up your bank account with cash, your business depends on your ability to create a lot of great content.
Create a Good Outline
If you start with a good outline, then you'll stay focused because you know exactly what you need to write about. And this focus will help you write more quickly.
2) Use Speech-to-Text Technology
This as been a true life saver for so many of my private high-end clients that have great stories to tell and content to share, but just can't get started sometimes.
Get a good microphone. Your software will work better if your words sound clear as you say them into your microphone. If you prefer, you can get a headset microphone for convenience.
Train the software. Yes, you will need to spend some time
training the software to recognize the way you speak (your
voice, accent, etc). So while this does take some time upfront, in the long run you'll save time once you've gone through all the training with the software.
3) Write Fast Without Editing
One reason that people often can't write very fast is because they stop and edit nearly every sentence as the go.
However, while editing is necessary, it's something you should do AFTER you've created the piece (not during the writing process).

Kairos Moments in Your Life - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. During this show we’ll reflect on what made you the saver & investor you are today. The key moments in your life that defined who you are, why you invest the way you do, and thus your Wealth DNA. Are you happy with the size of your portfolio & the level of passive income it generates? If you could re-live some key moments in your past, are there some things you would do differently?

If you’re wondering what a Kairos Moment is, or how you know when it occurs – then join us. I’ll share some definitions and a few key moments in my life. Using those examples will allow you to understand the Kairos Moments in your own life. Ultimately you’ll want to use what you learn to understand the Kairos Moments in the lives of the people closest to you. Were you a part of their key moments?

Seduced - The Trafficking of Teens
Every parent needs to listen to this conversation with Opal Singleton, author of Seduced! Missing children are are being "sextorted" with a naked photo. Sometimes the young people are coerced or forced into prostitution. This is human trafficking and it is the fastest growing crime in the U.S. Parents give kids devices that open the door to over a million predators that can influence a child's thinking on morality, spirituality and sexuality while they are competing for approval in a fantasy world. Apps, social media and online gaming allow access, grooming, recruitment and exploitation of our young people by total strangers. Listen to this conversation, take notes and tell your friends - this could be a life saver!
We’re following up on Police Supporter “Project Blue Life Saver.” We want to hear what you did, how it went, and have a spirited discussion concerning media coverage. We’ll address media bias and “Media Brutality” (a term coined by one of my best friends, Railroad cop, Jimmy Smith of NY) It would be nice if you can get media coverage, since any good press concerning law enforcement is great, since it’s so rare. We’ll talk about posted images on FB Police Supporter and Police Talk Radio. Our chat room is opened to interact with others from the Police Supporter and Police Talk Radio family. Hold on to your horses, and join us for an informative, entertaining and energetic Police Talk Radio ride
A Police Day” which takes place on SA, September 19, 2015. Here’s the deal, give every law enforcement officer a roll of Blue LifeSavers, as part of Police Supporter “Project Blue Life Saver.” The reason is because blue is the color most representative of police officers and they are literally "life savers". So, hand a blue role of LifeSavers (Pep O Mint) to any police officer, deputy sheriff, state trooper, Game Warden, FBI Special Agent or any publicly funded law enforcement officer with the power of arrest and tell him/her "THANK YOU." That's it! It would be nice if you can get media coverage, since any good press concerning law enforcement is great! Also, post images on FB Police Supporter and Police Talk Radio. We’ll take other callers with open discussion on any topic related to the police function. Our chat room is opened to interact with others from the Police Supporter and Police Talk Radio family. So, buckle-up and join us for an informative, entertaining and energetic Police Talk Radio ride.
