The Book Launch for Social Media for Business

The book launch at the Center for Excellence

The Social Media for Business book release party took place August 4th at Raleigh’s Center for Excellence. Sixty business owners from around the Triangle joined us in celebrating the completion of putting our best understanding and practices for small and micro-business owners into one motivating and readable book. And it was exciting!

A number of friends came early and helped us set up – thank you very much! And many of our Team Nimbus, and inside919 friends and colleagues came. It was wonderful to see everyone, in a way celebrating the learning and work we’d done together in the past years.
