I started studying marketing and business in 2011. I was a new mother and finally had my little boy on a decent schedule. My friend (and future business partner) Sara was gearing up to find herself an agent and get published. I was just getting back into writing myself and decided I’d help her hunt for agents since she was in school still and surfing the internet is really easy while feeding a baby or trying to stay quiet while he naps.
I found agents and publishers and then I found something else. Something I wasn’t looking for. The Creative Penn. A website and podcast, all about doing it yourself and why you should. I spoke more and more about self publishing and the Indie Author movement to Sara until eventually I was convinced it was for me. Since then I spend most of my free time studying book marketing, writing, and business. Through these studies over the last seven years, I’ve discovered a few life changing bits of information from a few different sources and discovered some entrepreneurial qualities about myself.
