Joanna Penn escaped the corporate life in 2011… and has never looked back. Today, she’s a best-selling author of thrillers and nonfiction books about writing, and she helps other writers break into this competitive industry.

She talks about her “zigzag” path to entrepreneurship, including what she learned from the mistakes she made along the way, as well as why loving a certain activity doesn’t mean you can always turn it into a thriving business. 

When Joanna started planning her new venture, she started by deciding what type of life she wanted… and then looked for a business that fit into that and turned a profit too.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How your current boss could help you start your new business
  • What to do if you feel stuck in your current job and feel entrepreneurship is too risky
  • Free resources to help you start your business
  • A step-by-step process for a successful startup – including what you must do before launching
