Franchise Leadership as a Social Geek

Last week I was fortunate to spend a day in a writing seminar conducted by Melissa Giovagnoli Wilson, Founder and President of Networlding. As she says on her blog, her greatest passion is to help people write, publish, distribute and promote their books. After spending an entire day with her, I believe that is very true.

I arrived in Chicago “thinking” I could “possibly” write a book.  I needed to start somewhere so why not attend Melissa’s workshop. By the end of the day I was convinced that I “can” write a book and motivated to follow the suggestions Melissa taught. Melissa encouraged the group to calendar 15 minutes a day to writing. So far, my 15 minutes easily turns into 30 – 45 minutes and I’m enjoying it!

The hardest part is finding a title that I’m comfortable with. I could use your help! Right now, I’m settling with “Franchise Leadership as a Social Geek”.

Let me know what you think as I start working each day on the content!
