Before we met…Katia was a multi-passionate creative who had a real talent with writing and storytelling. She had gone through some life-changing personal events and was ready to focus her life through a business, art, writing, or music. She wasn’t sure.
What we realized …We sat down and talked about how to approach art, her story growing up in Lebanon, and finally, about publishing. She loved the idea of building a small press and took off to learn what would be involved in operating it. In the course of our conversations, we talked about the need for cohesive design, palette, and website and began the journey to the current business by building a small site and stating her intention. That was in 2018. In 2019, she began forming the administrative team and opened her business for writer contributions. We integrated WooCommerce and began the process of systemizing the creation of the book products. Each following year, she added new books, refined her publication process, and attracted an amazing editorial and marketing team.
And now, the WOW…
In the years since she first began, with the help of a fully operating, growing, thriving website and her own marketing efforts, Katia and her core staff have built a beautiful and thriving publishing business that focuses on the stories and lived experiences of people from all over the world.
