Meet Luminary Member, Allison Goldstein



Tell us a bit about yourself! How did you get started with your current career path/business journey?

I've always loved the written word. After graduating with degrees in English and Brain & Cognitive Science, I worked in-house at a publisher for 6+ years in editorial and marketing roles. I eventually felt too far removed from the authors and their manuscripts and decided to strike out on my own, and I've been writing and editing independently for the last 5 years.

What behavior or personality trait do you most attribute your success to, and why?

I am an extremely reliable person. If I commit to doing something, I do it.

What’s a mistake you made early on in your career, or in your business, and what did you learn from it?

I undervalued myself. I probably am still undervaluing myself as a result.

What’s one professional skill you’re currently working on?

Setting boundaries with clients and staying within the scope of work.

How do you invite others to take a seat at the table?

I volunteer to mentor students at my alma mater who are interested in going into careers in writing/publishing.

What is one thing you wish you knew a year ago?

That we'd have a vaccine for COVID by 2021.
