Crowd Publish TV: Woman Engineer Produces Book and Movie, Creates Web Platform For Creative Entrepreneurs

WOMAN ENGINEER PRODUCES BOOK AND MOVIE, CREATES WEB PLATFORM FOR AUTHORS AND CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS AFTER GETTING FIRED FROM GOVERNMENT JOB

Lisa Schaefer

Lisa Schaefer, PhD

If you are highly sensitive, dislike controversy, or don’t want to know anything about sexual harassment in the workplace, then please don’t read this post to find out how Lisa Schaefer turned her experiences into a movie and more.

Washington, DC, March 21, 2013  –  Lisa Schaefer was always a high achiever throughout her twelve years of engineering education. But the workforce wasn’t quite as accepting of her contributions. So when she was fired from her job at a multi-billion dollar government contractor the day after a fellow employee masturbated in front of her, she decided she would never go back to another job like that again.

Instead, she wrote a book about what it was like working in that office. She also produced the web series and movie Budget Justified, reenacting what went on in those offices leading up to getting shut into a conference room with a coworker with his pants down.

Having experimented with gamer platforms where there’s constant opportunity for live interaction, Schaefer wasn’t satisfied with online resources for authors to sell their books. Thus she’s created CrowdPublish.TV, an online artist shop where authors & book lovers interact directly and build community through live streaming video.

“With the internet, television no longer has to be one way communication,” Schaefer says. With CrowdPublish.TV, authors can hold discussions with readers, almost as though everyone is hanging out in a bookstore together. Authors no longer have to be beholden to a middle-man to control whom they reach.

CrowdPublishTV – The Future of Empowerment is Your Story

ROLEMODEL ENTERPRISES is a woman-owned internet startup advocating for freelance entrepreneurs, independent authors, and whistleblowers; and advocating against sexism and bullying in technical forums and professions.

Learn the Art of Selling Art in New *How To* Book for Artists

A few months ago, I pre-ordered the book How To Sell Art by J. Jason Horejs, at a special discount price. The book arrived in the mail yesterday. The cover price is $24.95

I pulled the book from the envelope and snapped this pic of the book cover. The upper left edge is a little ragged. The book was sent in a padded envelope that showed no sign of damage so I am certain that this book was not damaged in transit.

In the introduction, the author makes important points on how all artists must also wear the hat of a salesperson and that one of the most common errors is “misprioritizing”–attending to some other task while ignoring interaction with a possible buyer.

The author’s Red Dot Blog has more art sales advice.
