Entrepreneur's Circle: How To Elevate Your Brand Through Publishing A Book


Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not tackling the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community.

This month, we welcome VP, Strategic Partnerships Christina Henry de Tessan and Executive Director, Independent Publishing Meghan Harvey of Girl Friday Productions; a women-owned and women-led firm, that creates gorgeous, brand-building books for authors and entrepreneurs.

Do you have industry-specific knowledge others want to know? Does your professional journey have take-aways others would find inspiring?

Publishing your thought leadership can add value to a national conversation. It can give your methodology or message staying power. It can also take your business or personal brand to the next level.

There has never been a better time to self-publish thanks to advancing technology, easier-than-ever distribution and direct-to-reader marketing opportunities. But let’s be honest. It’s also very confusing, with lots of predatory practices out there; false promises; and fast-changing platforms and offerings. In this presentation, Girl Friday Productions’ Executive Director of Independent Publishing Meghan Harvey and VP of Strategic Partnerships Christina Henry de Tessan explain why self-publishing is no longer a dirty word—and, in fact, why it’s such an exciting option for entrepreneurs. In this presentation, they will talk about:

  • How self-publishing has changed and why it can be a better option for entrepreneurs than traditional publishing.

  • Best practices for indie publishing today

  • Why having a clear marketing strategy is as essential as writing and producing a professional-quality book

  • How to go about it so that you end up with a beautiful book that’s right for you and your message and brand

Most importantly, we will answer your burning questions about how you can use a book to bolster your brand.

Key Takeaways Include:

• Demystifying the book publishing process so that people feel that it’s accessible and a real possibility for them.
• Concrete tips on what it takes to self-publish successfully.
• Letting people know there’s more than one kind of book out there. Authors can be as creative as they like when they become their own publisher.
• Sample books will be on hand to get people excited about the full range of possibilities.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!
