Letter From The Editor
As an author entrepreneur myself, I’m fascinated by how my colleagues also view being a leader, learning how to be a leader, and who they learned from. As artists, we create our own roads. (Click to tweet.) There is often no one that we can look to who has walked our exact same path. But as one of my colleagues says, “Success leaves clues.”
Some of the clues I’ve noticed in the successful author entrepreneurs around me:
- They set goals and write them down.
- They work in collaboration to succeed; success doesn’t happen alone.
- They are hard workers, but also know how to relax, play, and to celebrate every step of their success.
I think it’s this later that I’m most in need of! How about you?
What are some of the clues of success that you have noticed? How have you integrated them into your life? Comment below. We’d love to hear what you think!
