I’ve put together a series of videos collectively called It’s Your Business. These videos are FREE and helpful.
There is a television ad for toilet paper that caught my imagination. It’s for Charmin and involves three bears: Papa bear, mama bear, and their son. These cute commercials usually end with the motto ‘Enjoy the Go’. It got me to thinking. What if we changed that to a motto for our career and said, Enjoy the Do’ or something like that?

As a disclaimer I have never received a rejection slip because I have never used traditional publishers. As an Indie publisher I have the ultimate power or authority and I can exercise that authority over when my book is published. I may change my mind, but if I want it published it gets published.
I knew nothing about writing other than I wanted to write books, novels in particular. My first step in my journey actually took place as a child. I liked to daydream and I had a good imagination. I would adopt characters from television and I would become that character, then I would fight the bad guys. I was a hero both on Earth and in outer space. But transitioning to a teenager I started writing my stories.
As the person
responsible for the IT Management and the Company Finances I always look for ways
of cutting costs. By making the switch from Godaddy hosting to WordPress

But the timing
was also right because of our recent addition of TR Writing Services. With the
switch I have been able to create a more in-depth view of this business
enabling viewers to get a better view of it. Since we are upfront in our
literature about pricing I wanted potential customers to see what we do and the
cost of what we offer!
