Brunette Games Founder Lisa Brunette was recently interviewed by the Mid County Chamber of Commerce as part of a roundup of women entrepreneurs and business owners. We’re proud to be members of the Chamber, and Lisa’s thrilled to be included in the roundup, which you can read in its entirety over at the Chamber Chatter newsletter.
But since there wasn’t space for Lisa’s full interview, we’ll include the rest here.
Q: If you could speak to a younger you, what advice would you give her?
Ha, ha, I know this sounds impossible, but someday your talent as a writer will actually provide you with a decent income.
Q: If the state of your business was a season (winter, spring, summer, fall), which season would it be and why?
The winter of our discontent! We experienced an unparalleled boom during the COVID lockdowns when everyone was stuck at home, looking for something to do. Unfortunately, decision-makers are comparing this year to that anomaly instead of looking at numbers from pre-COVID, which would give them a much more accurate yardstick.
Q: Anything else you'd like to say?
Brunette Games and Brunette Gardens are the third and fourth companies I've owned, so I guess that makes me a serial entrepreneur. Even when I've worked for other companies, I'm the person who builds a team or department from scratch or steps in to "fix" a troubled program! I used to think of this tendency as a burden, but now I see it's a blessing.
