Big News from Humor That Works
After 2 years of working on Humor That Works as a part-time job, effective July 1st I will be fully dedicated to the business full-time! That's right, I'll be leaving my comfortable corporate position at Procter & Gamble to help individuals and organizations use humor to become more efficient and effective at work, at home and in life.
You'll be able to read more about my decision and what it means for Humor That Works in an upcoming blogpost, but what it means for you is more content, more frequently. Don't worry, the newsletter will stay monthly, but if you want up-to-the-minute updates on humor happenings, be sure to follow us on Twitter
or like us on Facebook
How Can I Help You?
In honor of my switch to full-time, I want to help you, I just need to know how. What is it that you need? A free 60-minute call helping you use humor for a specific project? A free electronic copy of any of my books (50 Quotations on Humor
)? A custom-written joke for a presentation you have? Something else?
For the rest of June and all of July, ask and ye shall receive (within reason).
Now some of you may be wondering, what's the catch?
is that I'm so excited to be focused on Humor That Works full-time that I want to help as many people as possible. Of course it's not completely self-less. As I make this transition into a new mode of working, I want to make sure I have plenty of things to work on. I've got speaking engagements lined-up, conference sessions to attend and hundreds of blog posts that need written, but I want more. And who knows, maybe that more turns into additional work, connections and ideas. At a minimum, it will turn into a little bit of help for people I want to help the most, you!
So if you have something you need help with, email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org (See, it must be meaningful if I'm giving you my direct email address.)
Sometimes it's important to just take a break and laugh or smile (corporately we call this "Strategic Disengagement"). Here are three posts from our sister site Humor's Office
21 Great Censored-for-TV Move Lines - A list of famous movie lines made safe-for-work through TV dubbing.
What May Happen in the Next Hundred Years - A surprisingly accurate 1900's predication of the next hundred years (aka stuff that's already happened).
Challenged - A motivational poster about challenging ourselves when others have stopped challenging us.
