What entrepreneurs and self-publishing indie authors have in common.”

Penelope‘s insight:


Self Publishing Authors = Entrepreneurs.

The sooner indie authors begin to see themselves as entrepreneurs, the sooner they can make headway (on their own terms) with their writing futures. 

This is second-nature to me, and I suppose I take it a bit for granted, since I have lived with an entrepreneur for a quarter of a century. I have watched him build companies from the ground up with absolutely nothing.

Compare self-publishing tasks with tasks of the classic entrepreneur, and they are no different. Writing a book and marketing said book is no different than creating a product or company and sending it to market.

As a writer and self-publisher, you must realize that you have now become an entrepreneur. An edit to your manuscript may not be what’s needed–it may be an edited perspective.
