Transitioning from Educator to Content Creator

Everyone has their own hangups about content development and marketing our businesses, and I love that this week’s guest is helping authors to overcome those challenges. Debbie Gonzales is a former educator and administrator and an author and coach for authors in the kidlit industry. She works with authors of all backgrounds and experience levels to get their books in the hands of readers.

Like so many of us in this entrepreneurial space, Debbie dove in head-first and learned everything she could about owning a business. She learned how to blog (and why it’s a marathon, not a sprint), how age impacts how you’re marketing yourself and the importance of community for women of a “certain age.”

As someone in Debbie’s “certain age” target market, I could not have been happier to chat with her. Not only that, but Debbie is a member of my Content Mastery Lab and she gives new meaning to the words star student.
