Author Biography

Caroline Moore is a photographer and designer from Brownsville, Pennyslvania. She has honed her business sense through years of involvement in the DIY punk scene, and has spoken on the topic at Weapons of Mass Creation Fest and Dare Conference.

Review

"Caroline Moore offers the best kind of hope for anyone who hopes not to spend the rest of her or his life grinding out boredom in an office cubicle. Punk Rock Entrepreneur shows musicians and other artists how to make a living (or part of one) out of creativity without resorting to the loathsome selling-out that kills your soul. It won't be easy. It might not work. But it can be done." --Ted Rall, cartoonist and author of Bernie and Snowden "An inviting, practical, no-nonsense guide to getting a DIY business off the ground. Moore is like your smart big sister, business mentor, and life coach guiding you through the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. And she's really funny and really real." --Eleanor Whitney, author of Grow: How to Take Your DIY Passion and Project to the Next Level and Quit Your Job

"A weeklong ride in a van drinking too much coffee and just talking about everything, feeling inspired and wishing somebody would write it all down... that's what this book feels like." --Jason Chandler, author and illustrator for Horrible Comics, lead singer for punk band the Frustrators
