Brianne Smith

Brianne is a Colorado Springs native and graduated from Colorado Technical University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. She has a love for the arts and enjoys choreographing and performing with her steampunk cabaret dance troupe, the Vagabond Misfits.

In January 2018, Brianne independently published her first book, Spooning Leads to Forking. The book sold 400 copies the first month before Amazon suddenly banned the title from its listings without explanation. Not to be deterred for long, Brianne applied and was accepted for a marketing internship at the Pikes Peak SBDC and also landed a gig as a publishing consultant at My Word Publishing in order to learn from the best and brightest in the small business and publishing industries. Under the tutelage of the wonderful mentors at the SBDC and My Word Publishing, Brianne hopes to become an inspiration to women entrepreneurs and help other aspiring authors avoid the same mistakes she did so they can share their stories with the world.
