The Boss of You

Last night I caught the tail end of the book signing for The Boss of You.
I wish that I could have seen the whole presentation because what I gleaned from the little bit that I did catch was pretty interesting.
Written by Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears, two Vancouver based business ladies, the book is geared towards women who run their own businesses.

That's ME!!

And a lot of other fantastic gals I know too.

They also have a blog here.
Check it out!
(I was just looking at their blog again and they'll be in Victoria on June 19th at Silk Road Tea company. 6pm.)

I've got it bookmarked on my computer already.
I haven't read the book yet, but Geoff ordered it for me last night so I will read it soon.

Speaking of books, Geoff and I are thinking about starting our own book club! Just the two of us, we'll read something at the same time and discuss.
I am ridiculously excited about it.

One last unrelated note: what do you think about flicker? I see it all over the place but I don't have an account yet. But I was interested in setting up a slide show on this here blog and flicker was one of the options with which to do it.
Any feedback?

Thanks!

Jana,

Thanks so much for coming out last night! I'm glad you got something out of it.

I thought I'd weigh in on Flickr: I love it. For starters, it's easy to use for making slideshows/uploading photos to your site etc. It's also a really great way to build a further community online. I have lots of Flickr Contacts (kinda like Facebook Friends) that I keep tabs on. Many of them are crafty folks who post photos of their work and it's a great way for me to keep up to date on what they're up to, particularly when their work is so visually lovely like yours. So I strongly recommend it. And make sure you put a link to your Etsy store and your blog in your profile so people who see your photos can get your stuff!
