For Episode 40, I had the privilege of interview Lynne Sturtevant.  Lynne is a local history buff, published author, and entrepreneur.  Listen to my previous Interview with her brother James Sturtevant.

Lynne is the owner of Hidden Marietta and The History Biz.  She has authored Haunted Marietta:  History and Mystery in Ohio's Oldest City and A Guide to Historic Marietta, Ohio.

Here are some of the highlights from our conversation:

  • how her father stoked her interest in history
  • her career path from State of Ohio employee to travel agent to marketing director to Marietta businesses
  • how she has leveraged three H's (history, haunted, and heritage) into her businesses
  • the ghost ladies, indian mounds, and why Marietta is the most haunted city in Ohio
  • an example creating a history program through the Cambridge Victorian Village funeral celebration
  • her writing process with the Charleston Press
  • the importance of creating a memorable, immersive experience to get people interested in local history programs
  • core values of being a successful businessperson, make a return for all involved, and the customer experience
  • Marietta is a tourist attraction because of its recreation opportunities, museums, attractions, Revolutionary War cemetery, and nearby former slave plantation across the river in West Virginia
  • Consumes content from the Fizzle PodcastPat FlynnSide Hustle PodcastDaniel Pink, & Seth Godin
