5 Ways to Transition from Author to Business Owner

Uncategorized Jul 08, 2019

I started out with my first book in 2016, Twenty Pearls of Wisdom, and I've grown into a multi six figure business and brand. By the end of 2018, I took one book, evolved my book into a business, and made $123,000 primarily using Instagram and Facebook, while working my 9-5 job. In this blog, I’m going to share with you five ways that I evolved from author to business owner.


#1. I studied marketing.

I implemented marketing strategies such as building my email list. I stopped creating graphics on my phone and learned how to use Canva. When my business could afford it, I eventually invested in professional graphic design services.


I also started building my email list as well as getting footage. Anytime I did anything (attended an event, spoke at an event, etc. I recorded myself and I shared it. Anytime I sold a book, I took a picture with the person who purchased my book, posted the photo of us together, and tagged them in the picture. Whenever I spoke at an...

5 Takeways from the #RoyalWedding

Uncategorized May 21, 2018

This past weekend, the world watched in happiness, awe, and excitement as Prince Henry married Meghan Markle.

Now this was not a normal union for a royal blueblood.

For one thing, Meghan is divorced. Meaning she's had a husband and the "perceived" notion of her being a virgin is long gone out the door. Many men felt that her divorced status made her unfit to be the wife of a prince. Plus, she's several years older than Prince Harry. It's a marriage that's far out of tradition. 

Second, Meghan is mixed. Her mom is a copper-skinned sista with beautiful shoulder-length locs, and a sparkling gold nosering. Seeing her nosering brought back nostalgic memories of my neo-soul days when I wore a bejeweled nosering during my college days. So for us to have representation and inclusion in the royal family was something that many people never even considered. But the day has come.

Third, Meghan is American, not British. I'm certain that no one expected Prince Harry to marry a foreigner and...

3 Things You Need to Legally Protect Yourself When Writing a Book

Hi Power Player!
We are talking about legal protections...What you need to keep others from stealing your work, from selling your work without you getting paid, to registering your work under their name, and all those types of things.
These tips I am going to share are very simple, but they are very important because they will determine the future of not only your book, but your business. I would hate for you to sign over the rights to your book and when it takes off, somebody is able to make a profit off of your work and you have absolutely no idea what’s actually going on.

1. Get your copyright.

You need a copyright. I would suggest that you don’t get it from a third-party website. You actually can go to copyright.gov. You want to make sure you copyright your work in your name. This is a service I give to my clients in my publishing company. I copyright their books under their name so they have all rights to their work. But you can also do it yourself; one...
