Featured on Friday: Meet TBB Member @JenniferVMiller post image

One of the things that I love about doing book launches is the opportunity to get to know people like Andy, Jane, Chantal, and John. As I’ve said before, without the faithful members of Team Buzz Builder, we could not be as successful in our launches.

While some members may think, “I’m just sending a few tweets” or “It’s only a short review”, I see it as fantastic promotional material for our amazing authors and will retweet and share everything I can find. One person talking about a book turns into five people, then 25, then 1,000.

The power of social media is  that one tweet can be amplified to thousands, and that’s just one of the reasons I like turning the spotlight on some of our most faithful Buzz Builders. It’s a small way for us to say “thank you” for being part of our social megaphone.

Meet Jennifer Miller

Jennifer V. Miller is a leadership development consultant whose writing and digital training materials help business professionals better lead themselves and others towards greater career success. Follow Jennifer on LinkedIn or Twitter. You should also sign up for her free tip sheet: “Why is it So Hard to Shut Up? 18 Ways to THINK before you Speak” and read her award-winning blog The People Equation.

Why do you like being a part of Team Buzz Builder?

  • It’s wonderful being a part of a community that wants to put positive, upbeat messages out to the world for the business community and for business professionals. I’ve been a member of other book launch communities, but didn’t feel as “plugged in.” Because I know Team Buzz Builder’s founder personally, I have trust that the books selected are not only of the highest caliber, but the authors stand for integrity and positive messages as well.

What benefit do you think you receive from being a part of TBB?

  • I’m a learning junkie, so from a personal standpoint, I’m always learning something new from the TBB authors. From a professional standpoint it’s important to stay up to date on the latest trends in business management and leadership. I can count on the Buzz Building team to present me with books tailored to my interests. As a blogger, my readership counts on me to bring them fresh and current content, and there’s nothing like a being able to say, “I’ve got an advance copy of [name of famous author]’s book and here’s a tidbit that I can share with you.”

If someone asked you why they should join Team Buzz Builder, what would you tell them?

  • Join because today’s business world moves fast. Staying up to date is the only way to stay relevant, and reading business books is one way to do that.

Tell us more about your work/family/life/hobbies… the fun stuff!

  • 100_4383It probably comes as no surprise that I’m an avid reader – historical fiction, chick lit, biographies, science fiction (in small doses) –  I love it all! I actually read cookbooks as a form of relaxation. My life is a kaleidoscope of of writing, running my consulting company, and chauffeuring my kids to and from their school and sporting events. My favorite hobby is vegetable gardening. Flowers are lovely, but there’s nothing like being able to eat the fruits (and veggies!) of ones labor.

I don’t know about you, but I learned something new about Jennifer while writing this (feel free to send me some of those home grown veggies, Jennifer!), and I hope you will connect with her online if you haven’t already done so.

Interested in joining Jennifer and the others as part of our Buzz Building team? Sign up today!

Carrie,

Thanks for the great write-up. And, oh, if only those fresh veggies could travel as easily as a tweet – you’d have a basketful of ‘maters. When they come in, we can’t eat them fast enough!

I was once a co-worker of Jennifer Miller. It comes as no surprise that she is a learning junkie, she loves to read, is a busy parent, and is a successful entrepreneur. I learned a few new things about her though. For one that she is a Team Buzz Builder like I am and absolutely loves it like I do. Another stellar article,
