CEO of GrowBiz Media & SmallBizDaily.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT LED YOU TO START WORKING IN DIGITAL\/MEDIA PUBLISHING?\r\n\r\nAbout 9.5 years ago I decided to quit my job and start my own company. I knew that digital publishing was rising, while print was declining, so it was a no-brainer to go digital.\r\n\r\nAll my clients have digital platforms.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?\r\n\r\nI work from home. Usually, start by 7 am. Always check email first, to see if there\u2019s anything I need to deal with immediately since I\u2019m in CA and many of my clients are on the east coast. Time zones can be tricky sometimes to navigate around.\r\n\r\nI then check Twitter.\r\n\r\nSome days it\u2019s all about writing; others it\u2019s about editing. But I repeat that pattern all day.\r\n\r\nEmail>social>write\/edit>email>social>write\/edit etc.\r\n\r\nSomedays I have interviews to do. Other days out of the office meetings.\r\n\r\nAlways connected though.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DO YOU DO TO GET INSPIRED?\r\n\r\nThe work I do - help people start & grow their businesses is inspiring in\u00a0and of itself. No outside stimulation necessary.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT\u2019S YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF WRITING OR QUOTE?\r\n\r\nOne of my favorites is something I wrote--not particularly original but it\u2019s: \u201cIf you believe...and if you persist...All things are possible.\r\n\r\nI also love Eldridge Cleaver\u2019s; \u201cIf you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.\u201d\r\n\r\nAnd George Bernard Shaw\u2019s: \u201cYou see things; you say \u201cWhy?\u201d But I dream things that never were; I say \u201cWhy not?\u201d.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT IS THE PASSIONATE PROBLEM YOU ARE TACKLING AT THE MOMENT?\r\n\r\nHaving enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nIS THERE A PRODUCT, SOLUTION, OR TOOL THAT YOU THINK IS A GOOD MATCH FOR YOUR DIGITAL PUBLISHING EFFORTS?\r\n\r\nI use a variety of tools. I love Pocket, to save articles I want to read later. I am a huge fan of Office 365, (I like writing in Word) because it\u2019s cloud-based.\r\n\r\nI use Hootsuite, Buffer, Tweetbot to wrangle my social media. TweetDeck to, though I wish Twitter would invest in it. We\u2019re on all social platforms, but Twitter is my favorite.\r\n\r\nFinally, I use Microsoft Flow and Loadr, a Chrome app, to help me remember to post to social.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nANY ADVICE FOR AMBITIOUS DIGITAL PUBLISHING AND MEDIA PROFESSIONALS JUST STARTING OUT?\r\n\r\nFirst, understand digital publishing is the same as print in the aspect of - you need to find your niche.
