July 11: Cristina Hadzi of Cristina Hadzi Interiors will help you create beautiful, intriguing, and purposeful interiors in your writing. Design is not just about how something looks, it’s how it makes you feel. Although I’ve known Cristina since we were in third grade together at the Overseas School of Rome, and could say a lot about her, here’s an excerpt from her “real” bio: “Cristina opened her design firm in 1995 after apprenticeships with leading interior designers such as Robert Currie, Richard Keith Langham, and T. Keller Donovan … Her love of juxtaposing periods and styles, unusual color combinations, luxurious fabrics and original materials is balanced with understanding that certain projects call for tailored simplicity and modern elegance as well. Her practice includes private residences in Manhattan, London, and Paris, and summer homes in the Hamptons and Connecticut.”
July 18: Meg Bertini of GoalsHappenHere has a passion for helping you achieve your personal and business goals. As she says, “Figuring out, setting, and keeping goals may not be easy, natural and enjoyable for you, but everyone wants to be successful and happy.” Meg has worked in book publishing, legal recruiting, freelance writing, and coaching. She’s chosen a path that allowed her to follow her dreams, and now she helps others follow theirs.
July 25: Entrepreneur and social media expert Kathy DeCosmo of Katie Shea Design will give you some great ideas on connecting and growing your writing business. I’ve known Kathy practically since the birth of Twitter, and she’s been one of my strongest, staunchest supporters from the moment I first dipped my toe in the brave new world of independent publishing. I always admired her way of engaging in social media and I learned so much from her about being an entrepreneur. Kathy is a partner in the Chatterworks Group and a contributor to the DailyBasics – A Lifestyle Directory.
