Business Musings: Whining

I hate it when other people whine about the work that they have to do, especially because of this new world of publishing. The extra work has encroached everywhere. There’s social media, newsletters, website management, blogging (for some of us), podcasting (for some of us), video blogging (for some of us), and on and on […]

Business Musings: Things I Learned (Or Relearned) in 2014

In the past two weeks, I wrote two year-in-review posts, “What Traditional Publishing Learned in 2014,” and “Things Indie Writers Learned in 2014.” Those two posts came after I started this one.

The Business Rusch: How To Measure Success (Discoverability Part The Last)

Even though I posted a business blog on Tuesday, I couldn’t let a Thursday go by without a blog post. Especially since this week marks the fifth anniversary of the Business Rusch (and the business blog that came before it, The Freelancer’s Survival Guide). Yep, I’ve hit every single Thursday for five years, without a […]
