These women are not afraid to discuss their challenges or even failure along the way,” says Breakenridge.
Fiona Smart Built a Business by Building an Imaginary World
As kids we probably all heard it at one time or another, and as adults, we surely say it to our own children if we have them: “What do you want to be when you grow up? You can be anything you want!” Some little kids have pretty predictable dreams of being a doctor or a teacher, but some kids dream really, really big. They want to grow up to be explorers, superheroes—or even kangaroos and lions.
Fiona Smart, a classically trained singer, and songwriter, is the author of the song and accompanying book, I Can Be a Superhero. Written about and for her first daughter, Fiona wanted to encourage kids to use their imaginations, dream as big as they possibly can for their futures, and foster a love of reading in families.
Follow along as Fiona shares how she transitioned from late-night jazz singer to children’s book author, the in’s and out’s of the publishing world, and what it’s like pursuing her passions from home as a mother of three.
