Some of you have nudged me about not posting yet this year. I truly appreciate that you have noticed and thank you for reaching out!
The new year is off to a great start: a slow one on my blog, but with 4 firsts for me. So I thought I would take this opportunity to share with you what I have been working on. I plan to get back to my regularly scheduled blog posting next week.
You Matter…A New Radio Show Launches Today at 5pm EST
Today Lolly Daskal and I are launching a new radio show called You Matter on Blog Talk Radio at 5PM EST. We have a wonderful first guest, Tim Hurson, Author of Think Better. Tim is an expert in cultivating creativity and creative thinking in organizations and with individuals. Think Better is one of my favorite books. And he is always up to something exciting so I look forward to hearing more about it on the show.
I wrote about one of the concepts from his book here. For me this is a great example of applying the principle ready, fire, aim! It is both scary and exciting at the same time. And I have Lolly to thank for taking a stand for getting the wonderful message, You Matter, into the world in our own unique way sooner rather than later! It is a message that is core to the work we both do as individuals. Lolly embodies so many characteristics of leadership including passion, being bold and thinking big, being unstoppable, and partnership.
You Matter will air at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/youmatter every Tuesday evening at 5pm EST beginning 1/19/2010.
You can also listen in to the show by calling this number: (347)-426-3316 And if you want to ask a question this is the number to call.
If you aren’t available to listen in (and I realize I did not give you much advance notice here) you can use the same link, http://www.blogtalkradio.com/youmatter, to listen to the replay.

Guest Posting On an International Blog in English and Spanish
For those interested I did my first guest post on Monica Diaz’s blog Quidam Global Blog titled When Being Positive Can Cost You. Monica is the author of a fabulous book and blog titled Otheresteem. Not only is this my first guest post, but it is my first post translated into another language. Monica lives in Mexico and put my post on the Spanish Language version of her blog.
Jane Perdue of The Braithewaite Group and the Life, Love & Leadership blog has introduced a challenging topic with a post called “Politics are Necessary but Not Necessarily Evil”. She has asked Jennifer Miller, Mike Henry and I to author a series on the topic building from her initial post. I am honored to participate with this group of exceptional leaders, bloggers, coaches and consultants. You can expect more on this series in the coming weeks. I highly recommend you check out their blogs, too.
What firsts do you have to share with us?
