Announcing Defiant! – A Social Media Project

by Rajesh Setty on August 31, 2009

defiant_spreadsWe are pleased to announce the launch of an eBook –

defiant: Practical Tips for Thriving in Tough Times

a social media project.

The entire project was influenced and powered by social media. A few months ago, I reached out to people (or peeps as they say on Twitter) via my blog, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter asking them to contribute one or two ideas/insights that will help people thrive in these tough times.

Long story short. More than 50 people contributed about 80 ideas and insights. You can see these ideas in Appendix III of the book. I am grateful to all the contributors (listed later in the blog post)

Get the Book for FREE

The eBook is FREE and there are NO strings attached. Just click the button below and enjoy!

( And, if you like the book, PLEASE spread the message about the book and help us by helping others.)
