Two weeks ago I sent out an email with the title: “Quick Question.” The content read:
I was greatly surprised when I received 250 emails thanking me for the thoughtful outreach and over 100 requests for help, either to help get jobs, get introductions for new business opportunities, or even help with book writing and/or book launches and marketing.
I’ll continue to share the results of this outreach over the course of the next month, but, for now, I’d like to showcase one specific response and the special outcome for the person who reached out.
The Reading Place
Bob McInnis and his wife are spending the next year as the “Reader in Residence” at a special home called “The Reading Place”, set up just for reading to kids in Calgary. Prior to taking this year to focus on this unique and important venture–helping the next generation become strong readers — Bob had a company where he provides coaching and consulting called Remarkable People.
His company focuses on life, career, and relationship coaching. But this sabbatical year of reading is just as important as his focused career path. Being a lover of words and, even more so, of helping young people get better starts in life, I became quickly intrigued by Bob’s year of reading.
In the podcast (set up on You Tube for your ease and enjoyment), I welcome you to take time to listen to this 30-minute conversation where Bob shares the genesis of “The Reading House” and the many young children and family being served by the art of reading.
