Mimi Wright, Owner M. Wright Group, LLC

A freelance project manager for more than 20 years, helping others with a variety of projects/tasks related to small business assistance, and event coordinating/planning.  After much thought and encouragement by loved ones, she made the decision to use her skills and resources to build a business of her own.  M Wright Group made its debut in 2015 and has continued to flourish as an up and coming minority-owned business.  

Among other contributions to the Group, Mimi's primary role focuses on self-publishing assistance and establishing an online presence for independent authors.  In 2016, Mimi successfully published her first book.
 

This was no easy task as, she was asked to complete this project with no formal training in publishing, limited financial resources and minimal assistance from the author who is an inmate at a federal prison. Her only access to him was via e-mail, snail-mail, 15-minute phone calls and a 6 hour behind the federal prison gates in-person visit every 2-3 years.   
 

She took on this project knowing she’d have to come up with creative ways to publish and market the book with no physical assistance from the author. They couldn’t do meet & greets, author readings, book tours, signings or photo-ops. All the basic requirements for any successful book promotion. This didn’t stop her!
 

After taking 2 years to learn what she could about self-publishing, creatively collaborating with friends and family, gathering the information and resources she needed to complete the project... “Voice For The Silent Fathers: A Memoir” by author Eddie K. Wright was successfully published in June 2016.
 

Not only was the book published, she established his online presence as an author with a website, FB page, Goodreads and Amazon Author pages and more. She created a book trailer that was narrated by the author himself, arranged multiple phone interviews and a held a very dynamic and interactive book launch event.
 

Later the same year, she published the author's 2nd book, was hired by another author and successfully published her first children’s book.
 

Mimi has since been hired by up and coming authors to help them publish their books and/or to establish their mark on the World Wide Web as an author.  
 

She is also an experienced event planner, coordinating events to accommodate groups of 10-400.

A mother of 3 boys, including 2 in college, living in Southern California, this New York native is an active member of her community with a heart for helping others. A fun fact about Mimi is that she’s been a Licensed Zumba Instructor since 2013 and teaches in San Diego and Riverside.
