Smart Woman Conversation
Today we talk with freelance writer, blogger, book author, wife and Mom, who is also a devoted pet lover.
You'll learn quickly why I was eager to have Maggie Marton join the Smart Woman Conversation "club" for Nurturing Big Ideas Today. She's the consummate professional and it's because in our long standing friendship I have always found Maggie to be smart, talented, and approachable. As regular viewers know, and those who are new should and will learn, my desire in these videos to help other women learn and become inspired by the smart women in these conversations who share their business/life stories.
In this video (below), Maggie touches upon how to succeed in a gig economy and how to take something remarkably unique (i.e.: zero pet waste information) and turn it into a successful focus for her writing. You need to watch to learn how she got started - and while she has magic in her soul, becoming successful was not magic! It was... a good bit of work.
Zero Waste Pet and Oh My Dog Blog
As Maggie tells us, she writes about dogs, cats, kids, and the environment for print and web publications and on her award-winning blogs, OhMyDogBlog.com and TheZeroWastePet.com. Maggie co-authored the forthcoming book Pet Blogging for Love and Money (January 2020), a guide to launching and running a profitable pet blog. She lives in the Indianapolis area with one dog, two cats, one toddler, and a very patient husband.
I especially love her story about being in third grade where she became concerned when she learned about a rip in the earth's ozone layer. Learn how that led to some of the content she creates, today! (and find out what she did about it then, as a third grader!)
Creativity Consistency Value
Maggie Marton is all about creativity, being clear about what you value as an entrepreneur, and learning to be consistent.
(p.s. did I mention she's the current Vice President of the Dog Writer's Association? Gosh, we didn't even get to that in the video!)
She has a co-authored book about pet blogging coming out in the new year. Watch the video to learn more.
Share and share alike.
