Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Adriel Wiggins, Owner of Adriel Wiggins Author Services & Consulting, located in Fayetteville, AR, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
At Adriel Wiggins Author Services and Consulting, we know you are the kind of people who want to be successful as an author or publisher. However, in order to be successful, you need a strategy. The problem is that there is no one-size-fits-all strategy for success, which makes you feel like you'll never find your formula.
We believe every author can be successful at reaching their goals, and that's why we are here. We understand the frustration of wasting money on courses or marketing books that don't help you streamline your business. That's why we provide services and consultations for authors and publishers at all levels.
Here's how it works: Contact us today to set up a consultation. Bring your dreams and goals. We will customize a specialized strategy to streamline your business and help you succeed. Email us today so you can stop wasting time and money on formulas that don't fit you and start succeeding.
Tell us about yourself
In 2014 I began beta reading for author friends. They soon realized that I was a great source as an editor and encouraged me to open up a shop editing. But in 2016, I realized I needed more steady income than just the occasional editing job and began training as an author assistant.
In 2017 I opened up my business to all authors needing an assistant. My business has morphed a bit since then, and I mainly consult now. I love seeing authors accomplish their goals and really grow their businesses. Plus, my income is the one that pays for things like braces and extracurricular activities for my family.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
The best feeling in the world is seeing one of my authors reach the goal that we'd been working toward. Whether their goal is large or small, each reached goal is worth a party.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
I love people. But I hadn't realized just how different being the company owner and boss was from just being a manager. Having employees has really stretched me.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- I'd suggest you begin with a solid plan. Before you take any steps to set up, do your research to know all of your options.
- Make sure you've got at least one person (preferably more) who has your back no matter what you'll need on the hard days.
- Set up as many automated processes as possible so that you can focus on what only you can do.
