Hello, my name is Hassan Osman and I started the Writer on the Side blog to share tips about how full-time employees can write their first book.
I write short books for busy managers (my main focus) and other short books for authors and traveling parents.
So far, I have published 21 books in different genres while balancing a demanding full-time job, and I’m working on writing my next one now.
My primary focus is on publishing nonfiction books on Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing), but I cover other self-publishing platforms such as Gumroad as well.
I share techniques that help you figure out what to write about, how to save time, and how to market your book.
You can also grab my free book on Gumroad.
A little about me
I’m currently SVP of Professional Services at NWN Carousel, the leading hybrid work company (views are my own).
Previously, I was a Director at Cisco Systems, where I led program management teams on delivering technology projects to clients.
Prior to that, I was a management consultant at Ernst & Young (now EY), where I helped Fortune 500 customers with their business strategies.
I’m the author of several Amazon bestselling books about team management, a few books about traveling in Europe with kids, a couple of children’s books, and books about how I wrote and published all those books while working a full-time job.
I also run a blog at The Couch Manager about working remotely.
You can find more about all my books by clicking here.
My current focus is on leveraging AI at work, and I run a weekly newsletter called “AI for Leaders” that you can subscribe to here.
