Judy Piatkus is a great friend of Cygnus and of the spiritual community here in general. Read here her amazing story and how she became a renowned publisher. She did not come from a monied background and began her career as a secretary. By the time she founded Piatkus Books from her spare bedroom, she was married with a disabled small daughter and pregnant with her second child. Gradually she learned how to be both a publisher and a managing director and to combine that with her family life as she had by then become a single mother of 3. Throughout the book Judy describes her learning experience as an entrepreneur, what it really means to run a company, the many triumphs and the pitfalls, what worked and what didn’t, how the company learned to reinvent itself through lean times and how it felt to finally strike gold.
