Here are three key notes I walked away with. They are true for all types of businesses.
Network: Get out there, meet people, talk about your business, listen to how others run their business.
Smile: Regardless of what is going on in your life, when you’re with a customer, present a positive attitude. They’ll remember if you don’t. You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.
Plan: Think about what’s going to happen today, but plan for next week, next month and five months from now. Don’t miss an opportunity because you didn’t look far enough ahead.
Regardless if you are traditionally or untraditionally published, you should think of your writing as a business. It is the best way to succeed.
