A slight break in our interview action today because I must say THANK YOU! to all of you. I have a double dose of good news to share, and I know Tom understands that I’ll burst if I can’t tell you as soon as possible.
While this is may be a blimp on the radar screen for those A-List authors, for me it is HUGE: Managing with Aloha goes into its second print run today! As a first-time author I have nothing to compare it to, but I am told by my distributors and booksellers that for this to happen in less than a year (we’re 2 days short of the 9-month mark) for a hard-cover book produced in Hawaii is “way better than great Rosa!” especially in light of our very ambitious first-run printing. “And a business book no less!” …(not sure what that means.)
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that all of you reading in our Ho‘ohana Community have made this happen for me, and I am filled with mahalo for the way you have supported me, and much more importantly, joined the groundswell of the managing with aloha message. We can reinvent the workplace.
The second bit of news is that Talking Story has made the Top500 List in Feedster this month, with a debut at # 479. I have to admit to all of you that I’m a bit perplexed by it, and I keep wondering how the thing works, for there are sooooooo many other blogs I expect to be on that list instead of this one. However I am grabbing that good news too because it’s not just about me; we share it.
In my mind there is no Talking Story without our Ho‘ohana Community. You challenge me, you inspire me, you make sure that my energy and commitment to Talking Story never ever falters. For in fact, it gets stronger and more consistent every day. Shine in your light, for this recognition belongs to all of us!
Mahalo nui loa; thank you very very much.
