See that picture above? Yea, it’s a really big deal. For the past 3.5 years Tim has been working his butt off on this labor of love. Since I have been working with Tim Miles & Co. this book has been on all of our minds. There have been a lot of edits, brainstorming sessions, writing, edits, discussions about the title, discussions about the release date, high fives, some more edits, and now there is something to hold onto to show for it.
Along with Ryan and Lynn, Tim has poured so much of his knowledge into this amazing book. It is so much more than you ever would expect from a book in the business category. I have read it multiple times and, while the finishing touches are still being put on, I get something new out of each time.
I would say that I am surprised by how much useful information is actually in this book, but I’m not. Anyone who knows Tim knows just how much he cares about helping good businesses. He puts everything he has into the things that he does to make them the best they can possibly be. So, the fact that this book is so good is not surprising at all. Tim, thank you for writing this.
We can’t wait for you all to read it in the fall.
Stuff we wrote this past week:
On Friday, we had another week of Practically Social. We were thinking about communication this week so we shared an article about putting more of a focus on public speaking in the classroom, a video about communicating better, and a single question to ask that could have a positive impact on you and those around you.
Stuff we liked this week:
First, a friend and all around great man, Morty Silber, shared some marketing brilliance from a clown. Puddles is a contestant on America’s Got Talent and his performance displays all the things we should strive for in our marketing.
Second, Austin Simms, a coffee shop owner in Virginia, is on a mission to solve the injustices in the world. His first step: charging people with bad manners more for a cup of coffee than those who are polite. Thanks to Ray Seggern for sharing.
Fourth, remember those choose your own adventure books that kept us on the edge of our seats? This is what they look like mapped out.
Seventh, his persistence is inspiring, his falling is hilarious.
How can we help you?
Well, so that’s a start to our weekend and yours as well. We’ll grow this a little over time as we add content and think of other stuff. During the week, we’re primarily going to write about the five major levels of The First Order of Business, and we’ll share our best tips on management, marketing, and motivation.
In addition, we take requests. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there’s a topic you’d like us to tackle.
Thanks for your time! Enjoy your weekend!
