I just got off the phone with my big sister. She’s at a conference in California where she’s enjoying a certain amount of celebrity among conference goers. Googling her name gets you six full pages of all her. The girl has platform. She’s also building credentials, and as she does, her following in her chosen profession continues to grow.
But she didn’t start out as a big fish in a little pond.
She started out the same as you and I and every other successful entrepreneur did. Over the years, she’s put herself out there. Quietly at first by being on boards and teams and teaching classes and meeting people of importance in her field. She’s attended conferences as a student and as a presenter. In short, she socializes with the right people, says the right things at the right time and helps whenever she can.
Writers, this is our call to arms. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Feed your small fish and watch it swim…
Just like friend and fellow writer, Pete Morin, is doing with his debut release, Diary of a Small Fish.
While I have yet to read Mr. Morin’s novel, I’ve been around him long enough to know that before the end of the day, I will be nestled up with my copy of Diary of a Small Fish.
Pete writes with wit, humor and charm. His words are poetic, yet honest. If you like golf, politics or romance, I urge you to check out Diary of a Small Fish.

Congrats, Pete. And my big sis!
