Justine Solomons is a networker extraordinaire and Founder of Byte the Book, which helps writers and publishers to learn more about the publishing industry, and to make connections that will help them in their careers.

In this episode, we talk about building a business on helping other people while also being clearly focused on making a profitable business. Also, how everything is sales, while scaling means learning to lean on other people and delegate work. "Our work is just a dream, until other people interact with it."
