Top Five Tips Small Business Owners Can Learn From J.K.RowlingSusan L Reid
J. K. Rowling is the English writer who has authored all seven beloved and widely read Harry Potter novels.
Her rise to fame and fortune is inspiring. As of June, 2011, she has sold over 450 million books that have been translated into 67 languages. The final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was the fastest-selling book of all time.
At age 46, her fortune is estimated at $1 billion. Forbes has named her the first person to become a "U.S.-dollar billionaire by writing books." In 2008 the Sunday Times Rich List ranked her as the "twelfth richest woman in the United Kingdom." And in 2010 Rowling was named the "Most Influential Woman in Britain" by leading magazine editors.
When this all began in 1990, however, things were very different for J. K. Rowling. She was not a published author. She did not have a lot of money. She was living in London, working as a researcher and bi-lingual secretary for Amnesty International, and her mother had just died. She later had to go on state assistance to provide food and a home for herself and her baby daughter. How she got from there to where she is today is a story filled with invaluable tips for women entrepreneurs.
It wasn’t fame or wealth that J. K. Rowling sought. No. She simply wanted to contribute to the world in general, and to children specifically. As women entrepreners, this is so important to learn. Focus on the unique something we have to offer to the world.
The rest will surely come, in ways we may not even be able to imagine.
