As a published author of nearly two decades, it always amazes me when the next book takes precedence among my thoughts. It is never a contemplation of what to write, but a revelation that possesses my mind creating a cascade of flourishing words that become entrapped into a book; conception to conclusion.
However, I wasn't always a writer, but I've always been an unbeknown entrepreneur. Reflecting through the years, it was typical for me to navigate towards the creative nature of my personality which accounted for my generally natural intuitiveness of entrepreneurship. It seems to have been more of the logical thing to do rather than the planned. Let me expound a bit so you will understand what I mean. When I began a writing career in 2005, it was not my deciding one day I was going to write the next great American novel. It was God's design for my life, who then and now, expires me to write. This is important to grasp, for we all are given gifts/talents; however, knowing what they are and utilizing them is required for success.
In continuing my story, I was accepted by a traditional Christian publisher. However, with twenty-five plus years to their credit, they closed the publishing business leaving many authors without a publicist. This was a crossroad; be picked up by another traditional or become one. High Tower Publications was launched in 2014. Having learned the trade within these years as an author, it wasn't a daunting task, but rather seemed like the natural approach considering the circum-stances.
Within the arena of book signings and speaking engagements, the most common statement I was approached with was: "I have an idea for a book, but I don't know how to begin." Learning of this need for assistance, I presented PaMar Creative Writing in 2015; a full-service entity for the newbie author. Also along my journey, I had the privilege to ghostwrite an accompanying novel for two separately produced faith-based films.
Prior to a career as an author, I founded PaMar Skin Care in 2004; however, before that worked in the medical profession for several years and even much earlier in my life was a licensed real estate agent. Though I come to the end of my tale, it really was the beginning of becoming an independent entrepreneur. Little did I know, that my first solo flight in the business arena would be the launching pad for a life of possibilities.
I firmly believe we are all entrepreneurs. Its simply taking your passion/talent and cultivating it to fruition. The desire to achieve success whether it be as a home-based mom, the career-oriented, or the business breakthrough from an interest or hobby, it merely takes having the ambition, focus, and determination to bring it all to reality... your reality. Nothing is impossible with God.
Let the passion rise in you. Success is always in sight!
