“Finding Your Niche: Choosing the Livelihood Road Less Traveled”

By far, the coolest story in the Mountain Xpress for 2010 was the interesting article I wrote about myself. In it I discussed me, my business and how I run my business. How I don't have money to run the business that I don't run very well and about how I need your money to continue running my business that I am not running so well, but could be with the right cash flow. I also talked about some other interesting women I admire, including Christine DiBenedetto and Laura Blackley, but they are only included to balance out all the parts where I talk about me. — Michele Scheve, freelance writer and co-producer of the Asheville Disclaimer

“When I finished college in New Orleans in 1992, my parents said I had to find a job. I’d genuinely thought they’d just keep paying my bills and making donations in my name to the alumni association. Starting a business hadn't even crossed my mind.

The only work I could find that was related to my mass communications major was at a free monthly tabloid called Health & Home New Orleans. I had no idea when I applied that being an account executive meant I’d be selling advertising.”
