Ok, blog readers, this request fits within the NO EXCUSES mantra for me in 2008 …
I am really, seriously, working on a proposal for the Escape from Cubicle Nation book. Those of you who have read me for awhile know that I have been rolling the idea around my head for a long time. For a variety of reasons (other priorities, pregnancy and new baby, Phoenix construction market crashing in 2007 and having to pinch-hit in hubbie’s business, waiting for the right time, procrastination, etc.) I have not been ready to move forward until now.
But boy am I ready!
I would be extremely grateful if you would take 5 minutes to answer 7 questions about what you would like to see in the book in this survey:
I have a pretty good idea of what I want to cover, and many of you have been very kind with specific suggestions in the past, so I just want to get a high-level check that I am on the right track with my thinking.
Thanks to all of you who have sent me emails asking what is up with the book.
And special thanks to my friends Bob Walsh, Glenda Watson-Hyatt, Andrea Lee and Sophfronia Scott for encouraging me and putting up with my excuses for why I haven’t completed it yet.
Thank you thank you thank you in advance for your time and insight.
Update 1/4: Wow, great ideas everyone, keep them coming! We have 63 responses so far. I will keep this survey open for a week (till Friday, January 11), then share the results with you so you see what everyone else thinks.
One of the best – it’s practical and heart-felt at the same time.
Keep up the good work.
Hi! I filled out your survey, but wanted to add one more thing (BTW… SO excited about the prospect of a new book!)… I think it would be great if you could expand on the different facets of fear that are such a big part of starting up your own business. One of the things that has been most surprising to me as a new entrepreneur is the roller coaster of emotions that are largely permeated by fear… something I wasn’t expecting, despite all my planning!
That is awesome news, Pam! Shall I resume my late night pokes?
A book! YAY!
