Vincent A. Lanci/ Ferol Vernon

If you are in or have interest in the world of tech, writing, and/ or music, this is the show for you! This week’s spotlight story will feature Garfield Cartoonist, Jim Davis.

Today, we welcome the Co-Founder and COO of Written Word Media, Ferol Vernon.

Written Word Media is a media company focused on connecting readers with their next great read and providing the premier ad platform for authors and publishers, serving over 35,000 authors. It’s basically like an online “matching” service for authors and readers and is nearing 10 years in business. It operates multiple websites including Freebooksy, Bargain Booksy, Red Feather Romance and NewInBooks.

Ferol loves tech and has spent his career building it. Everything from medical simulators (fake bodies for practicing surgery) to web and mobile based products for musicians, he does it all!
 
 We will also discuss his experience and areas such as photoshop, written code, managed Agile teams, tackled gnarly UX/UI issues, handled HR issues, crafted strategic vision, and everything in between. 

He built his career working for small technology companies that focus on democratizing writing/music, and will share it all today.

Some  other areas of discussion include:

  1. The highs and lows of entrepreneurship
  2. Entrepreneurship lessons and experiences working with family
  3. How to evolve your product or service
  4. How to scale your product or service, and much more. Enjoy the show.
