Are you getting bombarded with ads and emails for pre-Black Friday? I sure am. Getting ready for my “official” book launch for How to Create a $1,000,000 Speech. This week is a “massive” writing week for me. Have got all the key things done—all done on Monday so I can stay away from the phone: Saturday Twitter blog has done; Thursday podcast in the can-social media done to support it; Tuesday blog on book awards; and Wednesday ezine. Plus a great webinar was done on social media Wednesday live. The good news—just had to shovel snow on Monday—I had 8 inches on my driveway.
