I didn’t have a vast network when I opened my publishing house. In essence, I felt as if I was starting from zero. My previous clients weren’t the target clients for this business, which put me in a place where I had to call in the right people. Targeted reach outs through LinkedIn ended up being the route to success for my first book. The books that followed were filled easily through referrals from the authors in my first book. All I needed was the effort to push that first domino, and then the rest have fallen beautifully to create a business that will undoubtedly bring in over $100k in my first year.

I never thought of myself as ever being a CEO but a stay-at-home mom with a business on the side. When my business up-leveled, it up-leveled me as well. I still had one of my children home full time, but my thoughts, actions, and what I spent my time doing all changed. My business pulled me up to a place where I had no choice but to hire a bookkeeper, an email list manager, someone to do my website, and others. I was no longer doing it all, and I had the capital to make it all work. I enjoy holding the reins to my business. It goes where I lead it, and there is no limit to what I can do or what I can earn. It’s a freedom unlike anything else I have ever experienced.

I was attracted to this opportunity right away. Something deep inside me saw the potential for working with people in a way I loved while also providing a better income for my family. I followed my heart, and it led me to a place that I could never have imagined. It’s a place that I have always been destined to be.
