Author, Speaker, Consultant
Co-founder and CEO of Joy of Pursuit, Brenda A. Haire is an author, keynote speaker, workshop leader, and a small business and publishing consultant. Grace-given gifts: creative problem solving, strategic thinking, and integration Brenda has had over forty jobs and has been working since she was twelve. She’s never been fired and is not ashamed of her work history. Brenda always worked her way up, out, and on to the next adventure. Many see this as risky and call her fearless. She would tell you that fear was always a factor, she just chose faith instead. After being told she was a nobody by a publisher, Brenda struggled with her identity as a writer. Not one to give up, she pursued her dream and released her first book, Save the Butter Tubs!: Discover Your Worth in a Disposable World. Brenda was hired by her publishing agency immediately after her book was released, and she went on to become the president of the company. An entrepreneur at heart, once again she left on top, and now a six-time author in Christian nonfiction, Bible studies, and business, she uses her experience to help authors build business around their messages and small businesses write books around their business. Her passion is awakening the grace-given gifts in others to amplify JOY in their business and life pursuits. Her core philosophy on work and life is this: Knowing your worth changes everything. Brenda and her hubs (as she lovingly refers to him on social media), Darren, are both military veterans. They enjoy hiking and chasing waterfalls across the United States and live in Texas with their beautifully blended family and their loyal Jack Russell, Maggie.
