Publising For Passion and Profit

November 13, 2009

For the past three monts, I have been communicating with one of Australia’s successful women entrepreneurs, Lisa Messenger, Managing Director of Messenger Marketing (http://www.messengerpubishing.com.au)  and Messenger Publishing and co-director of Anchovy Publishing. She has worked globally in events, sponsorships, marketing, PR and publishing. She recently sent me one of her books entitled, “Maverick Marketing – Publishing for Passion and Profit”.

If you’ve been wondering about publishing for passion and profit, look at Lisa’s list of what you’ll need to begin:

 A Great Attitude: always believe in success.
 
Commitment: writing, selling and promoting takes time; months, even years.
 
Tenacity: push the parameters and break conventions.
 
Determination: because you will face obstacles.
 
Passion: it must underpin the entire project.
 
A Love For What You Do: otherwise, it’s time to move on.
 
An Open Mind: never be constrained.
 
A Belief that Anything is Possible: why not?
 
Willingness: to believe there is more than one way to do anything.
 
A Good Team: unless you are a writer, editor, designer, proof-reader, printer or publicist yourself!
