When Your Husband Writes Another Book…

By  |  12 Comments

surprise! coming at you on a monday instead of wednesday because…

  • jet-lag with a kid ain’t no joke (#upsince3am)
  • mondays deserve some love too
  • i have exciting news to share with you!

my amazing husband (and our solid friend james goodnow) have brought to life their book – “motivating millennials!” it’s release date is TODAY! yay!

**update! we just got word that it’s temporarily out of stock but please still order as they are printing more copies right now**

let’s not get started on the fact that i’m the writer in our family and yet he’s on his second book and i have yet to publish one…(note to self: get on it).

how amazing is the drawing above?! at two of his keynotes in england, they hired artists to visually depict what he was speaking about! very very impressive.

we are a unique generation (us millennials) and this book is how to hire, recruit and retain top millennial employees!

perhaps you aren’t in a position to be hiring us fiercely passionate and fun people yet but we would still love your support by ordering a copy! when we meet in person, i will sign it for you since my name appears within the first 3 pages. i guess ravery could sign it too.

you know ravery dreams big and these guys have a goal to make this a best-selling book! in order to do this, the book needs to be ordered the day it’s launched (today) so let’s help them accomplish that!

even more, this is a phenomenal book that helps baby boomers especially understand how we are a different generation and how to best work with how our minds our wired. please also feel free to share this with anyone you know who will benefit!

i can tell you it’s good because i helped edit it so i’ve read through it multiple times, watched how hard james and ravery have worked on it and know it’s needed for the changing climate in the working world. so, if you need me to hyperlink where you can order the book on amazon one more time,Β here you go!Β 

on an unrelated note…here is how our flight back from england went last night:

a little bit of this:

and a lot of bit of this:

we had a ravishing good time in the united kingdom and i am so very excited to fill you in! oh, and in case you are wondering, if someone made me pick a spot right this second to be transported to…it would be back here in the lake district of england!

we are believers in not solely dreaming big but also DOING big. we want our daughter to continuously see us doing this so thank you for your support in showing her this with “motivating millennials” πŸ™‚

    Yay Ravery (and you!). I love that drawing they did but mostly Atlas doing her “sooo big” arms! Also, love the baby with the wine pic. Oh and PS my BFF just moved to Denver so hopefully someday Leighton and I will get to hang out with you and Attie!

    I am 100% obsessed with generational psychology. I heard Jessica Stollings speak at a conference a couple summers ago about millennials and baby boomers in the workplace. Congrats to Ravery! What an exciting accomplishment. <3
