Author Interview with Carla Jenkins
Today I’m interviewing Carla Jenkins, author of business/nonfiction “Expand Your Personal Brand”. Welcome to my blog.
When did you know you wanted to be an author?
When I was 6 years old. My first-grade reading teacher had us create our own books. My mother sewn cardboard together to make me one.
What inspired you to write Expand Your Personal Brand?
I wanted to solve personal branding problems. I also did not want other professionals to figure out things through trial and error like I had.
What is your editing process like?
I edit at every stage. If I write one day then I edit at the end of that day. I also devote time towards editing all of my work for the week. Setting some of my earlier work aside, makes me more objective about what I need to cut.
What was the most valuable thing you learned while writing?
That I can write my own story. Writing is very important in the business world. The better you are at communicating, the better your life will be.
Did you set any writing goals for 2016? If so, what are they?
Yes, my writing goals are to write my business and to flesh out my 2015 Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) manuscript.
Are you working on something now?
Yes, I am working on a project management book.
