As you know, my first book Content Rules comes out on November 30th everywhere that books and ebooks are sold so we are in full blown marketing mode. Today I had this nice BIG surprise show up at my house.

It is moments like this when the reality of it all comes into focus. I'm going to be a published author. That is a big deal to me.

I'm finally kicking my cold and just in time since I'm speaking at the Inbound Marketing Summit this week and then jumping on a plane to Indianapolis to give a keynote on Saturday. Being sick and flying is not a fun combination so I'm glad I won't have to do it.

While I'm one to doubt myself often enough, I recorded a new Managing the Gray today focusing on pushing through your doubts. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. I hope my advice is in line with your thinking and if not perhaps it'll kick you forward.

Keep smiling and make the most of the day.
