GUEST-JO PACKHAM: WHO I AM
For over 35 years, I have been a leader in the publishing industry as a top-selling, award-winning author/packager/publisher. I have been the Owner/President of my own publishing companies: WWC PRESS and Chapelle Ltd., and have been personally responsible for publishing/packaging/authoring over 1,000 titles with sales of over 50 million+ copies in the informational, how-to categories. I am currently the Creator/Editor-in-Chief of three best-selling magazines.
As Creator and Editor-in-Chief of these three magazines — WHERE WOMEN COOK: The Heart & Soul of Cooking, WHERE WOMEN CREATE: Inspiring Work Spaces of Extraordinary Women, and where women create BUSINESS: The Passion of Success — I am the recipient of MIN’s Hottest Launches for WHERE WOMEN COOK in 2011 and for where women create BUSINESS in 2014.
I have authored over 40 of my own titles for some of the top publishers in the industry including: Quarry Publishing, Sterling/Barnes and Noble, Time Warner, Oxmoor House, Meredith Corp, Chronicle, and others.
SPEAKER / TEACHER / WRITER
I am an inspirational speaker, as well as, teach business classes monthly at events around the country. I have both taught and spoken at symposiums at major gift shows including Dallas and Atlanta; major and minor blogging, business, and DiY retreats, and industry wholesale events such as CHA and QUILT MARKET / FESTIVAL. I have been featured on many well-known blogs, in magazines published around the world, and have written features and columns for many of those publications.
I am also an inspirational and educational writer with my column: From the Kitchen Table in each issue of the three magazines. These columns receive hundreds of emails monthly from readers thanking me for my writings.
