Brad the Entrepreneur
I’ve started a lot of businesses and organizations over the years. I learned my hard lessons along the way and found my share of success stories.
Working with my apprentices, we launched The Pearl in 2022, a home for curiously good Kingdom literature. Check it out and subscribe there for weekly short stories, essays, and poetry.
In order to fully focus on The Company, a project I believe God has specifically called me to, I’ve sold or given away almost all of my other businesses. Most of them are still thriving under new ownership. These organizations include:
Ohio Writers’ Association – www.OhioWriters.org – Originally founded as Columbus Creative Cooperative in 2010, the Ohio Writers’ Association supports Ohio’s professional writers and emerging authors.
Columbus Publishing Lab – www.ColumbusPublishingLab.com – Columbus Publishing Lab provides book production and publishing services (editing, design, distribution, printing, and marketing) for small presses and self-publishers.
Proving Press – www.ProvingPress.com – Proving Press is the self-publishing imprint of Columbus Publishing Lab.
Boyle & Dalton – www.BoyleandDalton.com – Boyle & Dalton is a hybrid publisher of exceptional fiction and non-fiction.
Prior to these businesses, I founded a successful web marketing company called Brad Pauquette Design.
I do still own and enjoy sometimes taking on new titles with Columbus Press/Bellwether, an independent publisher of fiction and non-fiction. At this time, I really only take on new titles when I find a project or a person that really excites me.
