If you could start any type of new business, what would it be?
I actually have a business called Inky Twig LLC. I just haven’t been able to do much with it yet. Originally, it was supposed to be a freelance writing and political consulting business. But business has been slow and that is my fault. I have degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science and have worked in both fields.
The thing I loved about consulting in politics is working with people to help hone their message and steer them in the right direction – in a way that focuses on the voter and building a voter-centric campaign that is about the people. To me, a successful and sincere campaign must always be about the people they hope to serve.
Really, what I would love to do with Inky Twig LLC is several things – create a news-oriented podcast, expand on my love of photography and weave it all together with my writing. I also like to dabble in web design. I’ve sort of veered away from the political scene as that entire arena has just become too dirty for my tastes – although I still have a passion for it and quite honestly, I feel like I have a natural ability in that area as well.
I would also like to create a magazine. All this would be under the Inky Twig “tree”.
So I wouldn’t really be starting a new business, but rather I would be getting my current one off the ground and running.
