I started Shades Of Romance Magazine before there was social media. Promotion was all about participating in groups, forums and blogs. It was fun hanging out in forums and talking to authors and readers. Everyone was passionate about writing and books.
I never dreamed about making money with the magazine. I was doing something I loved.
When people ask me about starting a business I tell them to do something they would do for free because they love it. There will be many days that you work for free and you have to remember why you love what you do.
Being a business owner wasn’t on my agenda when I started SORMAG. For years I didn’t make a dime. When I started making funds from selling ads, I realized I had the best job ever. I was talking about books and making money.
Is your business something you love to do?
Guess who is turning 49 this month? Help me celebrate by ordering a copy of my book Building Online Relationships – One Reader At A Time. I have a goal of selling 49 copies by my birthday – March 19th.
