AUTOGRAPHS FOR MY BOOKS
When my book “It Doesn’t Hurt to Ask: It’s all about Communication” was released, it was a very special day when I held the first copy in my hand. Can’t really explain the feeling.
It was interesting, I struggled with how I should I sign the book if I knew the person well. Should I write Kathy or Kathy Condon? Should I use the current date?
Cannot tell you how much energy I wasted on trying to figure out how to sign the book. Then I realized I could pose the question on LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com Before I knew it I had answers flowing in to help me with my dilemma.
Yesterday, I was honored to be trainer for the California Placement Association http://www.calplacement.org at three different sites, San Mateo, Bakersfield, and Glendora, California. They purchased book for all attendees.
During the course of the day, attendees asked me to autograph their books. I made a decision. On the blank page following the title page I wrote something specifically for the individual and signed my whole name and dated it.
