A major part of building a successful small business can be considered an art.

The Best of Me from a to z is a list of virtues for life and business that when correctly applied, can elevate that art. It is beautifully illustrated for children and adults. This book was winner of the 2018 TCK Readers Choice Awards and is applicable to our everyday walk through life and business.

Today my guest artist is children’s book author Mary Rensberry, whose new book The Best of Me from a-z is now available from Amazon. It is about reinforcing and validating the innate traits and virtues of and for children (as well as most adults for that matter).
As a children’s book author myself, I am struck by the phenomenal illustrations that accompany each virtue and trait from a-z. Illustrator Sara Murtas did a wonderful job in capturing your visions of affirming the higher qualities we all strive for in our lives.
How did you connect with illustrator Sara Murtas for the collaboration of The Best of Me from a-z?
First of all, thank you Richard Rensberry and QuickTurtle Books for having me as your guest artist. You’ve had some amazing artists thus far!
You ask about my connections with Sara Murtas, the illustrator of The Best of Me from a-z and how we connected. We connected via the world’s largest Freelance Services Marketplace known as Fiverr ( fiverr.com). It was there I looked through many portfolios from various artists for the kind of art I was envisioning. It was there I found Sara’s outstanding work. The rest is history! I sent her a request for the type of illustrations I was needing and we agreed on a price and built our collaboration from there. All in all, Sara is a top-notch professional, has a good work ethic, and has great communication skills. It was a joy to work with Sara in every respect.
