Business Book Summaries

You Exec is an exclusive membership-based business organization. All our members are business managers, directors, VPs, among others — who work in a corporate environment. We are seeking a writer, familiar with business terminologies, who can summarize business books. Each of our book summaries are between 4,000 to 5,000 words — all of our book summaries also have an audio version, which we ask the writer to record.


How we pay:

  • For a 4,000 to 5,000 word book summary we pay $800 USD.

  • We cover the price of the book, you must purchase your book copy via Amazon.

  • For the audio recording, we pay $1 for every minute of sound. That is, for a two-page book summary the audio version should be around ten minutes — and we would pay $10. The sound does not need to be professionally recorded, most of our writers use a smartphone with a basic headphone to record.

  • We pay within 24-48 hours after receiving your article if there are no revisions.

  • We use PayPal to transfer funds.

  • All payments are in USD.


The ideal candidate:

  • Has already published or is a contributor with Forbes, The Atlantic, New York Times, Huffington Post, or similar publications.

  • Has a business degree or is very familiar with business topics, strategies, etc.

  • Works remotely, and is willing to sometimes chat by phone or Skype.

  • Can write at a minimum one book summary per month.
