Our May topic is Establishing Your Author Platform. The first part of that is equation is to establish YOU as a brand (remember the Five Questions?). As the founder of LinkedIn said recently, "everyone is an entrepreneur." If readers don't know who you are and what they can expect from you, it's going to be difficult to build a platform, gain readership and get people to listen to -- and buy from -- you.
I'm pleased to announce that Julie Bartlett, CEO of Colour IQ in Dallas is going to be our featured speaker for May's Meetup. Her company teaches
individuals and groups how to use colour, proportion and style to dress themselves well so they can more easily attract and engage the business opportunities and personal relationships they desire. As a professional image coach, colour analyst, and speaker Julie combines her extraordinary range of talents to evaluate, educate and motivate those going through a life or career transition or wanting to brand themselves well. Whether she is coaching individuals who are seeking their own personal style, pursuing a new job, going from divorce to dating, losing weight, or creating a strong business
brand, Julie Bartlett first helps others identify the person they truly are and want to be.
This is going to fill up fast, so be sure to sign up. And invite your friends -- even if they're not authors (yet), everyone can benefit from learning how to present themselves in the best light.
Looking forward to serving, seeing and hearing from you!
