I've had the entrepreneurial bug as long as I can remember, earning my first self-employed dollar at the age of 10 and starting my first official company at 18. Since then, I've launched a few more companies, as well as many other projects that didn't quite become official businesses.
Almost all my ventures have centered around publishing in some way. At age 21, I self-published my first real book and landed my first book deal. (Self-publishing was far more of an ordeal back then.) Over the following years, I earned a bachelor's degree in publishing and am now the author of several books, both self- and traditionally published.
Currently, I'm focused on my biggest venture to date — Social Motion Publishing, started in 2013 as an imprint of my benefit corporation, July Publishing Inc. The mission of Social Motion Publishing is to exclusively publish books that benefit related causes and guide social entrepreneurs who want to self-publish to support their causes. Go to SocialMotionPublishing.com for more info.
Additionally, I'm seeking a partner to further develop my website, SelfPubSmart.com, the first and only site dedicated to ratings and reviews of self-publishing-service companies by the authors who have used them.
