Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in publishing but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Christal Crockett, CEO of She Empowers LLC., located in Rosharon, TX, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My company name is The Scribes Collective, a writing community and publishing boutique for Christian authors. I offer book coaching, web design, and full-service publishing.

Tell us about yourself

I started my publishing company in 2020, but it was solely for my books. After years of coaching people informally, in June 2023, I made the leap of faith to start full-time group coaching and publishing to help Christian authors go from stuck to published.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment so far has been booking a client I never thought I would have the opportunity to work with. It proved to me that I am providing great value.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

The hardest things are time management and work-life balance. I enjoy my work a lot, so it's not easy to clock out, but I am learning to create strong boundaries now.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

I would give aspiring business owners three tips: seek automation early in your business, create boundaries for yourself in your personal and business life, and charge your price, but make sure you are providing value.
