Interview Series: Maren Kate of EscapingThe9To5.com

by Tanner M. on

Maren Kate is a talented young entrepreneur who blogs at EscapingThe9to5.com and runs a new media marketing firm at OracleLaunch.com

She also runs PowersellerPrincess.com and TweeterPreneur.com

I was grateful to have Maren write a wonderful, bookmark worthy, and very in depth post for Life Destiny called The A to Z’s of Entrepreneurship.

Maren Kate is very talented not only in writing but also in her entrepreneur efforts. After snooping around her blog at EscapingThe9to5.com and OracleLaunch.com I knew I needed to get to know this young entrepreneur a little bit more.

As part of The Life Design Project Interview Series, I present you Maren Kate:

    Excellent interview.

    I really like how she has plans of raising the bar by making $40,000 by early this year and then selling for a million, I believe she said. That's some great things she's looking at doing.

    I also like her idea on the monetization for EscapingThe9to5.com she has because the way I see it there's no right or wrong way to build a profitable blog but having a lot of trusting loyal fans of your blog definitely makes the process much smoother for turning a profit vs. just slapping ads up and hoping to make a sale the next day.

    Great interview once again, Tanner.

    Looking forward to more of what you have coming at LifeDestiny.net.

    Re-Tweeting now… It's well worth it! :)
