Startup Stories: Trois Coccinelles: Developing the Best Ideas

Dee Dee Mozeleski, Founder of Trois Coccinelles, LLC

Tell us about your product or service.
Trois Coccinelles was founded in 2011 to provide consulting services for small non-profit organizations. Shortly after the launch, a number of my colleagues in the non-profit world started to ask me how they could take writing they were doing for their organizations and branch out to write for other venues, specifically fiction and non-fiction markets.

As I started to think about how many of us wrote in our spare time, but needed to find ways to focus our energies to the writing as much as we focused on our careers, it became apparent that we could all do both – if we had a place to share ideas and stories about starting out in new creative writing ventures.

What inspired you to launch your business?
Trois Coccinelles means three ladybugs in French. The business was inspired by the three women who have shaped my life: My grandmother, my mother and my daughter. I’ve always wanted to be a connector of people and ideas and things and Trois Coccinelles allows me to introduce people who have no idea how much they have in common to others who care about the work they are doing and will do.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
Trois Coccinelles solves the problem most starting writers have: Finding ways in which to take their writings and creating a platform for readers to find them.

The self-publishing industry is still learning its way – in many ways, my twenty years in the non-profit industry has prepared me well for the challenges of self-publishing. Both fields require creative thinking, innovative collaborations and a willingness to be aspirational in the ways in which we write and speak about what we do.

What has been your biggest challenge and how are you working to overcome it?
Trying to juggle single parenting, a full time job, a full time consulting business and launching Trois Coccinelles has been interesting, for sure.

I started running more, writing more regularly and buying books I intend to read to remind me never to be too stressed.

Even with all of the work, I wouldn’t change a thing. Well, I might add a few more hours in the week, but maybe not!

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.

How has Project Eve helped you and/or your business?
Project Eve makes it possible for women to find new ways to brainstorm and partner with other women – in a world where we are told women can’t or don’t network enough – Project Eve breaks down the barriers that are real and imagined and offers possibilities to anyone who wants to take a chance on changing their own professional life.

Give us an insider tip that relates to your industry.
The world of self-publishing and the world of non-profit management are completely joined together in ways we don’t realize. Being able to use words to get people motivated and interested in a bigger idea is a talent that should always be nurtured.

The biggest challenge many people in these fields face is finding a ‘voice’ – my reminder to everyone is that when you find that voice, make sure it is authentically you.

However, it is advisable to separate your own wants from all the needs. As long as you’re working to boost your credit score make some sacrifices.

Additionally, a fable regarding the finance institutions intentions any time talking about foreclosures is that the lender will not take my installments. There is a degree of time that the bank will take payments from time to time. If you are too deep within the hole, they will commonly desire that you pay that payment completely. However, that doesn’t mean that they will have any sort of repayments at all. In case you and the traditional bank can manage to work something out, your foreclosure course of action may cease.
