I’m biased when it comes to creative entrepreneurs, being one myself.
It’s a feat to have even some success as an entrepreneur in general, but I think it’s quite a another to be an artist, writer or musician trying to make a wage from your creative craft.
Marianna Bergues is a 17 year old children’s book author beginning to make her mark as a creative entrepreneur.
Her latest book, ‘The Cat, the Fish and the Waiter,’ teaches children about importance of responsibility.
The story follows Peter, a waiter in Paris, who was entrusted by friends to pet-sit for a cat and a fish, while his friends (the pet owners) were on vacation.
When the cat and fish go missing, Peter needs to find them before his friends return from vacation.
The unique brand and approach of author Marianna Bergues is the fact that she’s authored the book in three different languages -- all appearing on each page together. The story is told in English, French and Spanish. So while the book is teaching children about the importance of responsibility it’s also teaching children new languages.
I’m always elated and extremely encouraged by creative entrepreneurs who are ambitious and determined to get their art out and bring it to market, even at a young age.
Having that kind of experience of taking a project from a concept to a completed project and it being sold and earning money is a phenomenal accomplishment no matter how monetarily successful it ends up being.
It teaches an entrepreneurial mindset and builds confidence that if one book can be produced more are possible.
