Born and raised in Minnesota and Wisconsin, artist, writer, and PR expert, Lynda Cain Hubbard, was spurred early in life by an urgent need to express her artistic talent and the love of the outdoors. She attended the Minneapolis College of Art, with a semester at the University of Minnesota. While at college, she taught art classes at a women's correctional institute. Her art has been displayed in galleries in California and Nevada and her paintings are on the wall in more than five states and Canada.
At twenty, she found herself heartbroken and bereft of a baby she gave up for adoption. She decided she needed to see the world, traveling from England, through Europe, Greece, and India, and finally climbing the Himalayas of Nepal. This gave her the chance to study different cultures, to paint and draw as well as to interact with the people - a story that she has finally put into print in Journey to Nepal.
To prepare for her trip, and while still in college, she did architectural drawings for a large Toronto firm. Upon returning from Nepal, she trained at a film studio, both on the set and in the marketing department. She moved on to advertising, PR (public relations) and trained in Internet marketing. She has been running her own marketing company, Trendsetters, since 1991, and her team conducts market research surveys in person as well as online. She has been writing copy and publishing article for over twenty years, and keeps busy joint-venturing with consulting firms throughout the United States.
Helping literally hundreds of company owners, from small to larger companies and start-ups in their marketing and publicity, she decided to put all her experience down in a basic e-book and workbook on marketing for her clients. Know Before You Go: Marketing Basics for Any Business, which outlines what marketing really entails in a simple, no-nonsense approach. The companion workbook gives small and medium businesses excellent exercises and action they can do to successfully marketing themselves in a competitive environment. She has appeared on college radio stations and has had articles on marketing and PR published online and in local newspapers in the Los Angeles area.
