We welcome Longenecker, author of Dinner for a Dollar to the 2019 Women in Publishing Summit. Shelly will be giving a presentation on how she built her book and business in four months.
Shelly is the founder and author of Dinner for a Dollar where she explains how she feeds her family a simple, allergy-friendly, whole food diet with loads of fruits and veggies for $1 per person per meal. Shelly is a wife and mother of 4. When her son was diagnosed 10 years ago with several food allergies, she felt completely overwhelmed, believing the myth that she had to spend a fortune on food and all day in the kitchen to feed her family safe, whole foods. She couldn’t find anything on the market that taught her how to eat a simple, allergy-friendly whole food, veggie-forward diet on a tight budget, so she created her own system that ticked all these boxes and turned it into a book to share with the world. She has a passion for helping others slash their whole food budgets and get out of the kitchen and on with their lives.
Shelly wrote the book and launched her company in 4 months – all while going through a complete kitchen remodel and wrangling 4 kids. She can’t wait to share with you about the mindset and work habit that allowed her to pull this off – all while working on a tight budget.
