Jan Risher, Freelance Writer and World Traveler

Jan Risher is a freelance writer and author of Long Story Short: Year of the Water Goat, a must read for anyone considering adopting internationally. She writes a weekly column for the Sunday edition of the Daily Advertiser in Lafayette, LA which centers on the human condition. As President of Shift Key, a content marketing firm, she enables businesses to tell their story in an effective manner to help them flourish and grow.

Jan recently launched a podcast, The Virtual Casserole, for a community of women who need casserole — not necessarily the actual food, but the warmth that comes when love is shared. She will publish a second book this fall featuring a collection of her articles written through 2017.

In this episode, Jan Risher discusses her love of writing and offers practical tips for aspiring authors.  She also freely shares strategies for businesses wanting to know how to market their business. An active and engaged member of the Lafayette community of business and non-profit endeavors, Jan is a voice to be reckoned with.

While visiting Scotland last year, Jan learned about their “Feel Good Festival.” Never one to waste a wonderful idea, Jan has declared August 2018 to be Lafayette’s inaugural launch of our very own Feel Good Festival with a theme of “Cool.” Each day of August will provide an opportunity for us to celebrate life….something we can all share with others  For more information, contact janrisher@gmail.com.
