On this final Special Edition Flourish episode, I interview my friend Jessica Turner, a fellow multi-passionate and multi-faceted businesswoman. While working full time in healthcare doing corporate marketing, she has found the time to write multiple books and run a lifestyle blog, The Mom Creative, for busy moms. In this interview, she explains the joy and fulfillment that comes from keeping her full time job, despite success from her blog and books. She also discusses the unique challenges to self-publishing and marketing her husband’s children’s books, as well as her own books. Jessica also shares why relationships are currency in marketing and the importance of continual education in order to grow yourself and your business.
This special edition episode offers a sneak peek at the content available in my signature Flourish 5-Day Marketing Plan Workshop. These short & sweet guest interviews feature industry friends and I wanted to pull them out of the vault for you. They reference 2018, but are filled with so many nuggets of wisdom and marketing inspiration, I knew you needed to hear them.
