The great thing about Day by Day (by Anne Day) is that each short chapter is a tidbit of information. I’d be tempted to read one a day and use the lesson for my day’s work as an entrepreneur. Alas, I don’t have that luxury since Thursday is fast approaching.
Our conversation on Thursday night (7-8:30pm at the Toronto Women’s Bookstore, 7:30pm over livestream) will be a double joy for me – as a writer and as an entrepreneur. I look forward to chatting with Anne about her book and her work.
The lesson for today? Ask your clients what they want. Perfect, since I’m about to finish this month’s newsletter!
I’m enjoying Anne Day’s book. It’s divided into sections and each section is made up of short musings on one subject or another – metaphors for life. They are lighthearted (so far), funny, and accurate.
Today I learned a business lesson through cows and the 60-40-20 rule that I’m going to try tomorrow when I sit down at my desk.
Want to know what the 60-40-20 rule is?
You’ll have to join us on Oct. 27th at the Toronto Women’s Bookstore.
7-8:30pm or over livestream at 7:30: www.facingout.ca/live-stream.html
See you then!
When I picked up Anne Day’s book Day by Day for the first time, I was reading it at the park. Not so today! In the meantime I have put it away as our schedule changed. When I started reading again tonight, from the beginning, what struck me again was how accessible it is; how easy to read, and to “get into”. It was like picking up the phone and chatting with an old friend.
Anne Day will be coming into the Toronto Women’s Bookstore next Thursday, October 27th from 7-8:30pm to talk about her book and her life as an entrepreneur and the founder of Company of Women.
I hope you can join us – in person or over the livestream.
In the meantime, I’ll be blogging as I read, to give you a taste and a reason to be part of the audience! So stay tuned!
I may have to ask Anne Day how she came up with the title of her book (Day by Day).Of course it seems obvious, but perhaps there is more to it than one might assume (heads-up Anne, if you’re reading this).
Anne will be my In Conversation guest at the Toronto Women’s Bookstore on September 15th when we will talk about her book.

So far, it’s a delightful read – starting with a bit about her life so we have a sense of the person behind the Company of Women.
I’m looking forward to continuing my read, so stay tuned!
