Smart Women Publish – Ep 99 with Bev Ryan
It’s a not unfamiliar feeling, to know you’re ready for change, but not to be sure exactly what that change might be…
And it’s what Bev Ryan felt when she hit her mid-forties and found herself yearning for a new direction. The opportunity to “do her own thing” was beckoning.
With a successful career as a High School Teacher in her toolkit, Bev started to explore her Next Chapter, inspired by the Barbara Sher book “I could do anything if I only knew what it was”. She dug down into her essence, identifying what she felt switched her on and excited her.
New chapters in self-publishing begun to emerge, firstly with her own magazines and then a metamorphosis into a Non-Fiction Book Coach and Publishing Consultant. Today, Bev works with professional service providers whose purpose for publishing is to highlight their expertise in a book, even when they’re not natural writers.
This is a vast and deep conversation ranging from Bev’s own journey to top tips for your own publishing adventure.
