Interview with Cate Costa

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I read on a Kindle Fire.
Describe your desk
I move to a different country every 1-3 months so my desk is constantly changing. As long as I have my computer and an internet connection, I can work.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town in New England in the U.S. and was always looking for more excitement. My writing is non-fiction, so I where I grew up didn't directly influence it. However, growing up with the desire to see what else was out there definitely shaped my career choice and led me to location-independent entrepreneurship, which led me to my book topics.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My work is all about making entrepreneurship accessible to smart, dedicated aspiring business owners, no matter their backgrounds. I do that through my website, through social media, through my YouTube channel, through consulting. Writing an ebook is another way to reach as many of those people as possible and help them start the businesses that will let them be in control of their lives.
