Before the podcast, we asked G.C. Denwiddie to answer some fun questions for us. These were her answers…
Q: What is your business superpower?
A: I’m delusional. Just kidding, not really, but I think my business superpower is a healthy dose of perseverance or what others might call stubbornness.
Q: If you weren’t an entrepreneur, what would your career be?
A: I would be a professor. I actually still aspire to be one at some point in the future.
Q: What is the biggest lesson you learned since starting your business?
A: Focus. Focus. Focus. I know I’d be more successful if I was more focused or had enough money to pay more people to be focused on my vision.
Q: Apple or PC? Why?
A: I actually do a lot of work using my chromebook because it’s compact and easy to use on the road. It doesn’t get viruses, and I use a lot of Google Cloud products, since I do lots of writing. It’s limited, because you have to be connected to the internet for full capability, but since I do lots of writing, I can use Google Drive online or offline. I’m actually looking at an Apple desktop computer because of its editing features. I haven’t decided which one yet, but it’s coming.
Q: How can people connect with you online?
A: They can find me at gcdenwiddie.com, my lifestyle blog about authorpreneuring.
