When Kristy wrote her first book she had gone from being a vet tech to becoming an entrepreneur home staging and later would become a successful three-time author. Kristy Morrison built her career from the ground up and has reaped her success in spades. Make Life Happen, the influencer’s latest self-help and business guide for the savvy business man and woman is a must-read you don’t want to miss out on if you have dreams of business success or are even thinking of becoming an entrepreneur.
Morrison says she learned her marketing skills through trial and error. “I read a lot actually.” Morrison says when asked how she learned everything she needed to know about becoming a successful business woman. During the interview she points to a gap in the publishing industry that even now is just beginning to fill. There aren’t and haven’t been until as of late a lot of books on business written by and even for women. So what does she do? She identifies a gap in the market and she fills it.
“Building my business in the past few years there wasn’t a lot of business female authors as there are now. I love Arlene Dickenson. I think more recently when it comes to female authors they are coming out more recently. I didn’t really have any to grow up with or learn through my early ages of business. I think maybe that was why I was like, I need to write a book. (She laughs). Get more women book writers out there!” And then, she did.
Her first book Competitive Edge: Transform Your Home and Maximize Profits through real world home staging cases is an informative read. Especially if you want to learn from a pro. “For Competitive Edge I worked 10-14 hours a day. I hammered out the core notes of that book in I’d say, a month.”
Morrison says Successful Systems: A Home Stagers and Decorators Guide which is her second book covers all principles based on how she built her business. It received glowing reviews and has contributed to her already impressive following on social media. “I wrote it just last year. It only took me about six months to start finish and deliver.” Morrison says.
And she has recorded the results of what efforts such as hers produce in the business world with a bit of hard work and perseverance in her latest book Make Life Happen which saw its book launch July 13th.
“When I have a goal in mind and I just keep going for it so regardless of whether someone tells me I can or can’t succeed, someone tells me I’ll never make it, someone tells me it’ll never work, someone tells me I’m crazy for thinking of trying I ask myself: Why? And I think that question Why? Why are they saying this has pushed me to seek out the answer, it means I just had to go forward.” Morrison says, so she did.
“I never thought in my life I would ever write a book ever. That was never a goal of mine.” Morrison says and when asked if she enjoys the author or entrepreneur aspect more she points out that she is a very strategic woman. “I don’t look for things that I’m passionate about to make money with I look for things that can deliver me to my passions.” Morrison says. A long term goal for Morrison is to have an animal sanctuary.
Is the ability to life a fulfilling life at our fingertips? Can everyone be as successful as Morrison? “Everyone’s different and I find, I personally feel every single person in this world can have success because success is defined by the individual first of all, so we need to define what it success to that person? Is success to you having multi millions of dollars? If so, you’re going to have to work really, really, really hard. Or is success just as simple as being happy?”
“Everyone’s goal is different and that’s why I love the women in this book Make Life Happen that I was able to feature have different backgrounds, different walks of life, different stories, different struggles and they were all able to achieve their own version of success.”
“I never thought of myself as an influencer until people started walking up to me and they’re like wow you really inspired me to do this, you really made a difference in my life.” Morrison says. Her writing also speaks for itself and it comes as no surprise that the results can be life changing once you’ve read her latest book from cover to cover.
“The best part of the book Make Life Happen for me out of the whole thing, painting the vision of hope and that you can do anything as long as you are willing to commit to the learning process, I’ll say. Everything in life is a learning process.” There is much to be learned between the pages of her three books and on her blog KristyMorrison.com
