GWCi’s Founder, Dr. Sharon T. Freeman, began authoring technical books for clients when she was commissioned by the White House in 1990 to write its publication on the Digital Economy that provided information on the digital government plans of federal agencies across the government. Only three months was allocated for the project, which entailed reading all of the plans of government agencies and creating a structure for the book, and writing it.
Her next commissioned project, in 1991, was for the Minority Business Development Agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
She was commissioned to conceptualize, write, and design a book about how to export that was aimed at the minority business population in the U.S. In that same year, Dr. Freeman wrote a first of its kind book on women who export based on a consulting assignment for which she was engaged by the Small Business Administration to conduct a survey and focus groups with women exporters.
Every year since, Dr. Freeman has written a book that has either been commissioned or sponsored by private or public institutions. The topics involved range from trade related matters, leadership, youth empowerment, government regulations, to baseball.
Most of her books were published by her association, the All American Exporters Association (AASBEA), and can be viewed at: www.aasbea.com. She has also authored books that are not available to the public that were commissioned by clients for their internal use.
