Synopsis

This heartfelt book opens with Teresa hiking the El Camino de Santiago in Spain. For her, the hike is metaphorical for her journey in life. As her toenails turn black and blue and her feet ache in pain from the miles she has walked, she thinks about the ups and downs of her entrepreneurial pilgrimage. While her current destination is clear and the path already laid out for her, she knows all too well that is not the case with most entrepreneurs.

In "Now That I Know", the author shares 8 new lessons to the 17 in the first volume. These lessons learned are from the many unexpected turns of the author’s own entrepreneurial journey. Each existing and the 8 new chapters of the book features personal and entertaining stories, observations and lessons such as “Hike till your mind goes empty” or “I did not dream big enough”- stories allowing reflection time and mental breaks from day to day life, stories on how people hold themselves back, the difference between men and women in leadership and entrepreneurship.

Teresa gained from those experiences and exercises to help readers prepare for the next step on their own journey.

“I hope that by sharing my experiences, mistakes, successes and failures, that I can help make the journey for other entrepreneurs, especially women entrepreneurs, a little easier,” shares Teresa.

Advance praise

“There are many books out there that may appear similar to this one, but the others end up trying to sell you a belief, a program or a subscription that requires your credit card. Not Ms Spangler. She simply shares her vast experience so that others can learn from her successes and mistakes. It's not often we women climbing the workplace behind her can have access to such wisdom. That's wisdom we can learn from and apply to our situation. The icing on the cake is that she does it with a serious dose of humor and teaches us how to laugh, even when it hurts. For this, I am grateful.”
- Mary Sandell, Media Specialist, Former Bloomberg and Master Storyteller.

“Women—and men—can learn so much from Teresa Spangler. Over the last two years, I’ve worked with Teresa on technology initiatives and I find her approach refreshing: Teresa is cutting edge without cutting people down. She pushes our teams and yet isn’t seen as pushy. All That I Am Now That I Know is a quick and easy read that enables all of us to get inside Teresa’s mind to see how (and why) she works the way she does.”
- Kris Downing Vice President, Commercialization and Innovation, Center for Creative Leadership.

"I enjoyed reading this book! It is chock full of good business and life lessons."

Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
