When you follow me on Twitter you'll receive a stream of pointers to interesting blog posts, articles, and resources throughout each business day.
I'm writing blog posts for one client. I'm helping a strategy consultant write his book, and working on a book about what Professor Clay Christensen says could be "more important than disruption." I'm also coaching two other authors through the process of writing and publishing their first book.
