First, we are going to continue our Livefyre Q&A series with authors and already have January through July confirmed. As soon as we hear from a couple of other people, we’ll publish the calendar so you can be sure to stop by on those dates.
The other thing we’re doing is trying something new with the webinars. Rather than charge you for them, we’re going to offer January and February for free. The idea is that we’ll be able to get sponsors, starting in March, so they remain free to you.
This month (January 24, to be exact, so register now and save the date!) we’re going to have Mitch Joel (author of Six Pixels of Separation and the forthcoming Ctrl, Alt, Delete) and, rather than have him present slides, I’m going to do an on-camera interview with him.
We think this will be a cool and interactive way for you to learn, but also ask questions of your own. We’ll use the chat feature and take questions from you during the broadcast.
I’m going to ask him about his new book, how he fits writing (he writes a blog post every day) into his days, how he manages to run an agency and travel and speak like a maniac, how many frequent flyer miles he has, and what he tells other speakers as they’re going up on stage.
And you have an opportunity to submit questions ahead of time. You know, just in case there are a gazillion questions the day of and we don’t have time to get to yours.
Lindsay Bell has already submitted her questions (things such as, “How long do you think it’ll be before I get fired for rampant unprofessionalism?”) and now it’s your turn.
If you have questions you’ve always wanted to ask Mitch – about his agency, Twist Image, about his books, about life, about his famous friends, or about anything in general – now is your chance.
Either leave your question(s) in the comments here, reply to the email when you receive this blog post in your inbox, or send me a private email, tweet, LinkedIn message, or Facebook message.
And save the date. It’s January 24 from noon-1:00 ET. It’s free, but our software only handles 100 people so get yourself registered now so you don’t want to miss it.
