Abridged CV: Theresa Lütge-Smith

“I’m a published author of  four business books and have written a number of self-study tutorials [Creative Writing; Editing & Proofreading; Business Writing; Get Published] and numerous ‘How To’ eBooks [including Freelance Writing; Start a Coffee Shop; Training Domestic Workers; Marketing Your Fine Art]. I’m an experienced writer, editor and publisher [self-publishing]. Projects I find most rewarding include writing articles, features, manuscripts and advertorials to publicize business and develop human capital; preparing book manuscripts for publication; and creating original info-graphics. My career background includes Public Relations, Journalism, and Marketing. I am a member of the Professional Editors’ Group (South Africa). In an economy defined by change and speed, my aim is to continually develop the ability to invent new processes and possibilities and to address its unanticipated effects; and to apply these ideas and practices to unmet human needs. I am particularly passionate about issues relating to changing patterns in global business; voluntary simplicity – finding alternatives to consumerism and ways to reduce our dependence on mainstream economics – and furthering education through online training courses.”
