In trying to write the intro to this website, Jodi Lasky fell down a well of internet research trying to decide whether to describe herself as a polymath, a Renaissance woman, a Jill of all trades, or a generalist.
Jodi is a startup founder, a coach, and a speaker. But, most of all, Jodi is a writer. Sometimes fiction, sometimes nonfiction. And she’s a researcher who sometimes falls down some very strange rabbit holes. (For example, there was a several year neuro-psychology period that she’d prefer not to revisit, but sometimes cannot help herself.)
Learn more about her books in progress below.
Yes. Books. Multiple. Because she sometimes cannot help herself.
Books In Progress
There for You (women’s fiction)
After 25 years, the friendship between Lou, Jo, and Sam seems to have run its course. But when Jo is diagnosed with breast cancer, Sam announces her husband is cheating on her, and Lou is on the verge of losing the best man she’s ever met—all during a pandemic—they know they either have to work through these crises together or move on.
Life Long Learner (women’s fiction)
No one is more fed up with the patriarchy than a vampire. After all: she's been fighting it for 500 years. But when she sees how much women's rights are regressing, and how it is impacting her (human) god daughters, she can't sit by and do nothing. It might be a blood bath, but it'll be worth it. She hopes. L3 is a triple timeline story, showing how Elizabeth evolves from 16th Century Tudor woman to 18th Century French Revolutionary to 21st Century modern woman.
Choose Your Own (Business) Adventure (non-fiction)
Thinking about starting a business? Don’t know where to start? Or even what kind? CYOBA walks you through the process of choosing, establishing, and running a business that fits with your dreams and lifestyle.
The Introvert Founder (non-fiction)
In 2019, the hustle was a key part of any startup: being out there, meeting people, building your network live and in person. And the 2020 happened. Events all went virtual. Investors and founders left expensive areas. The hustle and the connection have to be different. Introverts love this: it’s how we’ve preferred to do business for years. Now, you can, too—introvert, or not. A new style of doing business for a new normal.
