You might have noticed – it’s book launch season. Up at the main Weaving Influence HQ (a.k.a. Becky’s home office), books are being delivered on a regular basis… and going right back out again to Team Buzz Builders all over the place.

Sharon Pilaske (meet her on our Team page) works in Operations and is our book shipping expert. It feels like I’m emailing her almost daily with a request to ship a book to a media outlet, a blogger, or to giveaway winners (enter to win a copy of Overcoming Fake Talk this week). Fortunately for me, she’s on top of the ball and handles my every request with kindness and speed. We have a great team!

This week I got an email from Sharon: The Motivation books are in the office! Which can only mean one thing… it’s time to introduce you to their author!

Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work – Launching September 30th!

MotivatesPeople_Webinar_shareEach of our launches give us an opportunity to get to know talented authors, read great book, and pull together a fantastic team. This launch is no different and we’re honored to be working with Susan as we prepare for the release of Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work… And What Does. The best part? You’re Invited!

Becoming a part of Susan’s team gives you a great opportunity to support a lovely woman as she celebrates the completion of her newest book. You may only have time to send a tweet or two about the book, or you might write a review on Amazon (all authors love that!), or share a graphic on Facebook.

Whether you officially join the launch team or not, do plan on joining us on Tuesday, October 7th at 12 pm (ET) for a FREE webinar, hosted by Becky Robinson.
