Contributions

Moran finds and shares the stories of small business owners in a way that informs and inspires others. Believing anyone can make the world a better place, she often writes about small businesses making a difference through charitable and sustainable practices. Successful entrepreneurs often turn to her for ghostwriting, and she helps them share their stories with the world. Her stories have real ideas and answers for small business owners. She's a popular speaker about small business topics.

A self-professed "business geek," Moran turned to full-time writing with a focus on small business after owning her own business for nearly a decade. She was named a finalist in the SBA's Young Entrepreneur of the Year competition and has served in a leadership capacity in a variety of organizations that help small businesses. Generous in sharing the ideas, information, and resources she uncovers, she is a tireless fan of small businesses, and her love of them shows in her work.
