Everyone Communicates, Few Connect: Book Giveaway!

I’ve received 5 giveaway copies of John C. Maxwell’s Everyone Communicates, Few Connect: What the Most Effective People Do Differently. This engaging book teaches you how to connect with people in a way that increases your influence, improves your relationships, and contributes to your success. Maxwell shows you how to go beyond your usual social habits to create a lasting impression with anyone you interact with.

As an introvert, I found the book, which lays out what you need to do to become better at connecting with people, helpful in facilitating my own understanding of social behavior. Besides that, it’s uplifting and, frankly, pretty fun to read.

I’ll send free copies to the first 5 people that subscribe to our weekly newsletter. Just plug your email into the form on the right. (If you’re one of the first five, I’ll email you asking for your snail mail address.)
