Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write Direct Sales for the Single Mom?
Chiezda Washington: I’ve both directly and indirectly helped over 700+ people start their own home based businesses. As a single mom, I know there are a certain set of struggles we face as entrepreneurs and to assist others with balancing motherhood and entrepreneurship is where I found my inspiration.
JP: What sets Direct Sales for the Single Mom apart from other books in the same genre?
CW: First, I’ve researched many books on the market and while many of them focus on success principles, none of them are specifically targeting my audience of single moms. Moms, period, wear many hats. When you add to the equation a single woman raising kids, you double the number of hats she wears.
My target audience is who I wake up to being each and every day. God is using me as a vessel to assist others with both clarity and encouragement to balance their lives and pursue their dreams simultaneously.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to Direct Sales for the Single Mom getting out to the public?
CW: A solid brand, exposure, my commitment to my audiences success in business, internet presence and a valued information product.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish Direct Sales for the Single Mom?
CW: My process is from my heart, and it took me approximately three weeks to compose this book, cover to cover. The foreword was written by an author and friend, Mrs. Toni Coleman Brown, and the resources were gathered from my own personal arsenal of business building services.
JP: What’s next for Chiezda Washington?
CW: Next for me is the complete Single Mom to CEO Business Bootcamp to include webinar trainings, personal coaching, tour dates across the United States and a book deal with a major publishing company.
I’d like to thank each and every individual who has the passion to pursue his/her dreams. Thank you, Joey, for helping to spread my message to the masses in hopes of reaching those I was destined to meet.
