T-2 Days to Book Launch

T-2 Days to Book Launch : Getting feedback and reviews and being ready to iterate

 

There is something incredibly humbling about working deeply on a project and then asking for feedback. And, it’s beyond helpful to ‘get out of your head’ and listen to the candid comments of your trusted network. Reaching out to friends, family, and mentors throughout the book-writing process and working with professional editors and designers has provided fresh perspective at pivotal moments. The process has made the book so many times better ! #gratitude

Once the book was in a more final stage, it was ready for review by people in the social impact space who continually inspire and set examples with their work to bring the social impact sector forward. Their reflections on the book were validating and also formed a valuable personal reminder about the seed of purpose that started this whole process. :)

Best of all, meeting people and organizations driven to create impact, has led to exciting collaborations, partnerships, and new potential!

Here are a few of the incredible organizations and entities that have have been collaborators, media partners, and broadcasters in 2015…excited to deepen collaboration potential and build new connections in 2016!

T-4 Days to Book Launch

T-4 Days to Book Launch : Bringing the book to life with design

As it turns out, an author is only one part of the content. Then come the editors, interior book designers, and crowdsourced design. This book has not only benefitted from all three, but wouldn’t exist without all three. Additionally, it has the good fortune of featuring some very special interior illustrations by LA-based, mission-driven design firm, verynice. There’s nothing quite like working with social enterprise designers (who have opted for a ‘give half” business model, where they give 50% of their services to pro bono clients) on a book about social entrepreneurship.

Synchronicity!

 Once the idea of a book became clear, then came the process of organizing data from blog posts, mapping the questions, researching, and devising a story to tie together the questions…

T-6 Days to Book Launch

T-6 Days to Book Launch : It can be hard to find centralized, introductory info about social entrepreneurship

 

Through exploring social innovation, I found it can be hard to find places that centralize and guide interested changemakers on the amazing and growing resources in the space. So, that became a mission. And the idea for a new, actionable, engaging book to invite new social impact thinkers and doers to the table, was born :)

T-7 Days to Book Launch : Meeting Social Innovators and Impact Storytellers Gave Purpose

Meeting people dedicated and committed to creating impact, in whatever way they can, has given me purpose and a personal vision of using my strengths to contribute, share, and invite others into the space.

Impact storytellers, like my friends Mary and Myles of Forward Films...
