Why I’m excited about Interactive Project Management by Nancy Lyons and Meghan Wilker.

1. I’m a conceited business snob.

I do think I’m pretty smart. I pick up a business book, page through it and think “Same-old, same old. Tell me something NEW.” I feel like everyone says the same thing, over and over, just in different ways. Hence? Not interested.

2. I’m star-struck.

As in OMG I’ve actually met and had conversations with the authors. Nancy Lyons and Meghan Wilker are well-respected women in my own industry and career of choice – and as far as I know, they don’t hate me. We’ve had coffee. I’ve crashed Clockwork parties. My husband danced with Nancy at their 10-year anniversary party. And they even tolerate endless pictures of my children on Facebook (again, as far as I know).

3. I really want to learn something new, but I have a short attention span.

I don’t have time to sift through all sorts of crap looking for the useful nugget. I trust Nancy and Meghan, therefore I have faith in this book. I trust I’m going to learn something new without wasting my very limited free time. Thank god, it’s about time I found a book like this.

4. They have good parties. And I am an excellent ass-kisser.

I don’t know why, I just wanted to say that. But I’m not just ass-kissing when I tell you how excited I am about this book. It’s also because….

5. We need to hear from more women who are the creative rock stars of our business.

Like @Nylons and @IrishGirl. And it’s time we start listening to them, dammit. And…

6. Someone saw me…

holding, loving and admiring my copy of the book and asked about it. I told him who wrote it and why I got it, and he said, “Get me one.” DAMN. That’s hot.

To be continued. Of course. Would you expect anything else from a conceited business snob such as myself?

One thought on “Why I’m excited about Interactive Project Management by Nancy Lyons and Meghan Wilker.

  1. I don’t want to speak for Meghan, BUT I WILL — we’re really touched by your support. And, frankly, the support of so many cool folks in our community. It’s a vulnerable thing – writing a book and putting it out there for public consumption. But we think this one is important. And people like you make us thankful we live and work where we do. So, really, whether you love or hate the book (but we hope you’ll love it) thank you so much for buying it and for investing the time and for this blog post. It means more than you know.
