My New Book!

My New Book!

I am so excited to announce that I have a brand new book that will begin shipping, October 1st, 2015 entitled TWEETABLE LEADERSHIP. I’ll be honest with you this is the book I wish I could have released first. It’s jamed packed with over 500 practical one liners and tid bits and Jimisms, the only reason I couldn’t have released this book first is because I had to write the others books first so this greatest hits book could be created.  My dear friend Reggie Joiner has been telling me for years to write this book. I should have listened to him. During the writing and editing process tons of infusers and the many others who make up team Jim would read and re-read this book and everyone told me the exact same thing, “This book is going to help a whole lot of people!”

If you look up the words that make up the title in the dictionary you get the idea behind this book.  Tweetable |ˈtwētəbəl| means suitable for posting on the social media site Twitter. Leadership |ˈlēdərˌSHip| means the action of leading a group of people or an organization:These two seem at first glance to really not go together but the truth is they really do.  I’ve take short one liners from all my books, talks and articles to impart nuggets of wisdom that will help you lead others as well as your ministry that happen to be suitable to be posted on twitter but more importantly that are suitable to apply to your life.

Inside TWEETABLE LEADERSHIP is a collection of more than 500 tweetable truths that that will help jumpstart your thinking and learning so you can apply them in your life. At the end of every chapter is a collection of some of my favorite articles and thoughts on practical leadership topics designed with just one purpose; to help you become a better leader! Over the next few weeks I’ve asked 50 of my kidmin friends and bloggers I admire to write an honest review of the book and also give some digital and acutal copies away. I’ll be posting the where-abouts of each blog here so you can have more chances to win a copy. Why don’t I start the give-aways with a contest here. I’ll give away 2 signed copies and a bobble head to someone who between now and September 16 leaves a comment here, and tweets: Want to win a free copy of #TweetableLeadership?

 Have fun and thanks for helping me spead the word about this new book!

    since no one left a comment here I don’t have a winner the first person to do so and tweet the measage above will be the winner!

  2. I’ve been listening to Jim since he was sending out leadership lessons on tape and was a member of The Club. I still have the tapes but don’t have a tape deck. Sooo, this book is going to bring back some of those quotes I have long forgotten. I’m looking forward to reading it.

  3. I am excited about this new book!
