We’ve talked about music publishing and app publishing and digital resource publishing on the podcast before, but in this episode we’re talking about something different – fiction publishing!

And what does this have to do with music teaching or studio ownership?

Well, it just so happens that today’s guest, Ashley Rescot, is a violin teacher who took her creative writing hobby and channeled it to address the student retention issues she noticed with her middle and high school students. 

Ashley takes us behind the scenes into self-publishing short stories and novels. It may be a different industry, but it has plenty to teach us about the principles of business.
