Article: “How to Develop a Personal Brand as a Writer"

“[We] actively sought Ms. Grant (because of her reputation) to explain and disseminate the why’s and wherefore’s of the burgeoning app market. She was very helpful in untangling these new, uncharted waters for our eager-to-learn members. The seminar was extremely successful and not only did Ms. Grant become a great source of knowledge for our members, but she has become a new friend to many of the members who got to know her in New Zealand.”
