Self-Promotion? Me?

At a recent networking event I attended, one of the night’s presenters said “The secret to entrepreneurship is irrational perseverance.”  I wrote that one down and my brain has been latching onto it.  As an indie author trying to navigate all the breakneck changes in the publishing biz, I feel as though if I want anyone to read what I’ve written, I have to think and act like an entrepreneur.  Eek!  That means “self-promotion…”

… worse still, I always get the words wrong.  I have tried to tell someone what I’ve heard at least a dozen times over the past week, but it always comes out “irrational exuberance.”  I’m not sure what that says about me.

Maybe I can be an exuberant entrepreneur.  “Von Lagerhaus,” my first novel, is on the verge of sticking its head out of the womb.  Oh, oh.  I’m an introvert – this could be messy.  I hope I can pull off this entrepreneurship thing without annoying my audience!

    Enough already. My Kindle is hungry. It’s banging its spoon and fork on the table saying, “Where’s Von Lagerhaus?!!”. I’m ready to read it.
    P.S. Post a pizza video so we can learn to make Digrazie pizza
