New year (sort of), new things happening in my world - and I want to share!
A NicKEL for My Thoughts is a newsletter that will concentrate on the all things writing - with some marketing, PR, and branding goodies as well.
First: The Book
Back in November, I came up with the idea of creating an anthology of successful female entrepreneurs who made the best of the terrible year that was 2020. The result is Twenty Won!
These strong, determined women had the drive to start (and re-start) their businesses, they kept their established businesses afloat, and they raised awareness and funds for their nonprofit organizations… all during the year of COVID-19. These 21 women pivoted and persevered to set their organizations up for success in 2021.
With the support of family and the push from my dearest friend, Renee DeMichiei Farrow, I got to work in early December. The process was much easier than I ever dreamed - and much of that had to do with the team I chose to work with. I hired Cori Wamsley to be my writing and publishing coach and truly, the rest just fell into place! Cori guided me through weeks of one-on-one virtual meetings, connected me with Karen Captline of Better Be Creative, and introduced me to a few women who would ultimately contribute chapters to the book. Incredible!
Many of the women in the book are members of Pittsburgh Women’s Mastermind - a group of female business owners, from Pittsburgh and beyond, and facilitated by Melanie Colusci. This group has proven to be an invaluable resource to me - I’ve met so many amazing women and I’ve learned so much, on both a personal and a professional level.
The best way to support the book is to be ready to download the digital copy to your Kindle or Kindle phone app on April 21! I will share the link and more information on April 20. It’s really important for us to get downloads on launch day - it means a lot to our rankings on Amazon. We also need reviews of the book, which you can do once you download and read it.
I’m working with some exciting clients on the K2 Creative side. You can see who they are and what they do here. While I have clients from many different industries, I’m finding a niche with female business owners, authors, coaches, and speakers.
Referrals are ALWAYS appreciated!
And, finally, I’ll be sharing news in the next few weeks on a new venture / collaboration that I’m really excited about. Stay tuned!
I hope you got your nicKEL’s worth!
Until next time,
