Bethel Sawmill – Book Day!

I spent the day at our sawmill in Bethel, Maine yesterday.  At the end of the work day, I gave each of the 103 people who work there a copy of my book, NOT FOR SALE – Finding Center in the Land of Crazy Horse!

The day before I had personalized each book…took almost 3 hours!

I wanted to do that as a show of respect.  I never want people at Hancock Lumber to feel like they are only wanted for their physical work.  I want every person to feel important for their ideas and opinions.  That’s really what my book stands for…strengthening voices…at home and at Pine Ridge!




Spreading the word!

19576_280220683595_3109022_nSunday, I did a book talk at the Casco Library (my hometown library)!  1/2 of my former english teachers were there! That was a little overwhelming!  Sold 20 books.

Yesterday we shipped 12 books from on-line orders to 7 different states!

Today I am giving a book to all 103 people who work at our mill in Bethel.  Every voice matters!  In addition, we are hosting a group of medical professionals from Central Maine Health Care at the mill today.  We are sharing lean strategies for making the voices of employees and customers stronger in health care and manufacturing.  I am giving them all a copy of the book!

The word is spreading!  In the end, it’s all one tribe!
