Not all authors should spend time learning how to market. That may go against conventional wisdom, but it’s true.

Often learners have asked me how do I write a reflective account? And my answer is you need to know what a reflective account is before you can write good one. Many learners have submitted an account to their NVQ assessor and have been disappointed when told they need to write it again.
