What an awesome TweetChat yesterday! I appreciated the variety of input and ideas everyone shared.
One thing we didn't have time to mention is that I'm contributing proceeds from every book sold to deserving nonprofits.
I want to make that available to all of you - if you are connected with a nonprofit that might be interested in being sponsored, please let me know.
(When I say "connected" I mean you can put me in touch with the executive director, a development director, marketing director...or someone who knows them.)
Please let me know if you have any questions. Let's help some people and causes that deserve it! For more information you can email me at email@example.com or check out: http://trailblazeinc.com/seven-things-resources/
Take care and have a wonderful day!
In anticipation of a great tweet chat this Monday, Feb 3, I've shared one of my less proud leadership moments. Dan will be sharing another framing post tomorrow - look forward to discussing Results and Relationships with you on Monday!
