I’m Jean Murray. I have been called “Dr. Murray,” “Doctor Jean,” and “Doctor Jean the Mean Green Grading Machine,” professionally,and “Jean,” “Jeannie,” and “Grandma Jean” personally.
I have been a reader and a writer since probably forever. I remember the thrill of figuring out what those marks in a book meant; reading opened up a magical world for me that has never diminished. And it seems I have always had a pen, and now a computer keyboard, somewhere in my life on a daily basis.
At present, my focus is on writing motivational books to help small business owners save money and work smarter by starting a Frugal Business. My website is
I am working on a series of e-books and a print book, including:
- 15 Secrets to Growing Your Financially Frugal Business
- 7 Secrets for Growing Your New Frugal Business
- 5 Secrets to Hiring and Working with Freelancers
- 5 Secrets to Making Better Business Decisions
- Works Well with Others: Successful Work Relationships
The Larkin Press
Publishing books has always been a dream, and I’ve finally established a publishing company: The Larkin Press. I’ll be publishing my own books, of course, and other books as I find ones I want to associate with. The Frugal Business Secrets will be available through The Larkin Press as they are published.
Finding Your Green
My other new writing project is Finding Your Green, a series of books to help women find balance and purpose in their lives. The first book: Finding Your Green: Meditations on Life/Work Balance for Women in Business, will be published in print and on Kindle in early 2017. I can’t wait to share it with you! I have started a newsletter to share pieces from the book and the philosophy behind it. If you sign up now for the Finding Your Green newsletter, I’ll send you some starter articles to get you thinking, and my fun Green Game.
