Sam Chagollan Writer Marketer  🖋✨ I write books & help #smallbizowners & makers brand & market their work. 💜 #storytelling is my superpower! 📝 📚 Let’s tell your story ⬇️

Thanks for the feature @voyagelamag 💜 For this interview, I had the opportunity to look back at how Purple Ink got started, what inspired me to make the leap, and what I love about what I do. I feel so fortunate to have made a career doing something I love: writing my heart out. 💜 What a sweet way to end the year. Sincere thanks to my incredible clients 💜 my editorial sisterhood 💜 and my biz besties 💜 And cheers to everything 2018 had to offer! Link in my profile for the article if you want to check it out!

It’s pretty awesome to get to interview smart entrepreneurs like Scott from @windsorhomebrewsupplyco right here in my town. He’s doing something unusual: no online sales, just focusing on the people who walk through the door. Scott is so knowledgeable and approachable, you’ll definitely learn something when you walk through his doors. Check out my full article for @iheartcostamesa in the link in my profile. ・・・
Thanks to Iheartcostamesa for stopping by, writing some kind words and making me wear weird sunglasses. Check out the article at www.iheartcostamesa.com

✨ Get clear on what problem you're solving for your customers, and you'll magically understand how to position yourself in the market. How do you know what problem you're solving? Your customers tell you. In the questions they ask, the feedback they give, and the way they respond to the content you send them. People get really excited when you listen to them, and deliver what they ask for. It's like magic. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

📚 Need a #kidsbook for a lucky little on your list? Come find me @westsidemarket_cm this Sunday from 11-5, along with a ton of cool local artisans, live music, mimosas and more! I’ll have all of my books available to buy, and I’ll sign them for you too. 😉 Hope to see you there!

I loved working on this book too. 🌟 Fun, little one-sentence stories to go with each constellation, brilliantly illustrated by @nilaaye 🌟 I’ll have copies of Starry Skies with me @westsidemarket_cm on December 9, plus all of my other books too, just in time for the holidays! 🌟 Also available via the link in my profile or wherever books are sold. 🌟 #Repost ・・・
I love, love, loved working on this book. Starry skies is available now. A wonderfully designed book aimed at 3-5 year olds to learn about constellations in the sky, written by Samantha Chagollan and published by @quartokids. #childrensbooks #nonfiction #stars #astronomy #publishing #kidlit #kidlitart #purpleinkcreative #iwrotethis #kidbooks #shewrites

Do you have a muse who shows up for you? As a professional creative, I can't really wait for the muse to show up on a whim, so I try to keep her satisfied with a constant stream of inspiration, rest, and plenty of good tea. How does the muse show up for you?

Some weeks I wear many hats. And some weeks I feel like I wear many different heads altogether. 🤪 No matter what I'm doing though, whether I'm strategizing or writing or editing or helping someone with branding--I try to do it by placing myself in that brand's shoes. (Or wearing that brand's hat? How many ways can I stretch this metaphor?!!) What I'm trying to say is that it's all done with love. I believe in mindful, thoughtful communication, and that it just makes sense to use your words wisely. No matter what accessories you're wearing. 😂

💜 My latest article for @iheartcostamesa is live! Interviewing Clay from @westsidemuseum was so inspiring! His dedication to helping local artisans and makers is fantastic. If you’re local and you haven’t checked it out yet, the Westside Market is every second Sunday—so, today! #Repost @iheartcostamesa with @get_repost

😢 I can't help it. I get teary every time I read this line or see it in the movie. It's that time of year...Harry Potter time. I'm a total HP 🤓 and the whole series still inspires and thrills me, even after all this time. ⚡️ ❤️ It's not just the stories themselves, but the fact that a woman in her 30s wrote this magnificent, intricate, magical story is nothing short of spectacular. 💖 Always. .
