In our circle of thought leaders, authors, bloggers, and online influencers, we have connected with a host of talented folks. It doesn’t seem fair to keep them to ourselves, so we’ve decided to share them with you each Friday through guest posts, links, and interviews. If you know of an article or individual you believe is worth highlighting, send us an email and we’ll take a look!

For our very first Featured on Friday, we’ve decided to focus on a talented author, inspiring giver, and outstanding individual.

Meet Bill Treasurer

Bill is the author of Courage Goes to Work and Right Riskand the creator of Courageous Leadership:  A Program for Using Courage to Transform the Workplace. His newest release is the short, but inspirational leadership book, Leaders Open Doors. You know you’re in for a treat when you start the first chapter and discover that the whole idea for the book originated from Bill’s 5-year old son. Better still is the fact that Bill is donating one hundred percent of the royalties to organizations that open doors for people with special needs.
