Plan for Success in the Children's Book Business!
ABOUT THIS MINI-CLASS
In this intensive, you'll learn business basics and children's industry numbers to help you choose your own business model. Once you have a model, you can formulate a strategy for the phase you're in (pre-published or published) and tactics to help you intentionally develop the career you want to have.
