I’m not exactly a newbie here, as I’ve been putting my 2 cents in on a variety of topics for the past month or so, and decided that it’s about time I properly introduce myself!
Devine Write, LLC, is a tiny little business owned and operated by Kevin Devine (that`s me with the glasses in the photo!).
Most of my working career has been spent as a technical writer, which means I write hardware and software manuals for high-tech companies. I have worked for large companies, small companies, and have been self-employed as well.
Mid-way through my career I discovered that I loved adult education, so I returned to school for a Masters degree in Adult Education, and got a job at a local nonprofit. There I taught generally low-income participants about self-employment and small business for over 5 years, until the program was eliminated due to budget cuts.
As a result of my work, I have written two books. Unlike most business books, mine are written in an engaging, easy to understand style, and are especially useful for those who are still exploring their self-employment dreams. In 2005 my first book, Building Your Business Plan, won the Best of Show award from the Chicago chapter of the Society for Technical Communications.
Based on the wonderful feedback from my business plan book, I created another, more basic guide to starting a business, Building Your Business. I also created a new curriculum and I am again teaching business classes for those interested in starting small businesses.
Currently I live in rural southern Wisconsin with my wife and four-footed children, and work part time as a writer for a small software company. I`m constantly surprised at what I learn here on SuN and am happy that I can occasionally provide some ideas of my own.
