Starting a Writing Career, the Hard Way!
In my early 20's, I left the safety of my corporate job
with a major oil company in Chicago to pursue my first
love - horses! After training under professionals for
more than 10 years (from 8 - 18) I knew that what I
really wanted to do with my life was teach. So, in my
early 20's I bought a horse farm in the Midwest and
taught thousands of lessons in the years that followed.
After leaving the farm, I returned to Chicago and
decided to take a stab at writing for horse-related
publications. This would be the best way to teach
thousands of riders at the same time and I could earn a
living doing it.
During that first year, I received almost exactly 100
rejection letters. Because I knew that I knew the topic
that I was writing about, inside and out, I realized that
the reason I wasn't getting published HAD TO BE for a
reason that had nothing to do with my writing.
Turned out I was right, but it took a long time before
someone told me what that secret was! Click here to
