Rachel Lehmann-Haupt on Managing Storytelling Client Relationships

In Chapter 8 of 17 in her 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, author and small business owner Rachel Lehmann-Haupt answers "How Has Working Independently Starting a Company Been Different Than Working Independently as a Writer?" Lehmann-Haupt shares how writers have editors and entrepreneurs have clients. As a journalist and memoir writer, her work was about telling her own stories. Now, as a content studio developing client content, it is no longer about her and about the paying customers she serves.
