Ingrid Lundahl wanted to publish a table top retrospective book of her photos from the late 1970s up to present day from around Telluride and at various events she attended. Ingrid felt that she had captured the essence of Telluride during this time as she photographed many stars and musicians who have graced this outrageous little mountain town, in addition to images of its dazzling beauty. A congenital chronicler, Ingrid couldn’t help but capture all sorts of madness that happened before the town was discovered…nude skiing, ski sacrifices, pig roasts and local performances. She had located a publisher but didn’t know what else she needed to do.
A friend told her about the SBDC. After her first meeting with Susan Bony, SBDC consultant, Ingrid was ecstatic. Ingrid could see her vision actually becoming a reality. Susan walked her through the steps needed to legally create her business, book pricing and discounting, record keeping and promoting her book. Ingrid worked diligently on her “to do” list.
Ingrid said, “It was wonderful having someone she could call and ask for help, not just once, but over time as questions arose.”
Time passed and one day 5,000 copies of her beautiful hardcover table top book arrived at her door. Ingrid’s dream had become a reality because of the SBDC.
