Followers of my blog will have noticed that I am not posting as often as I have in the past. My personal goal for creating content on my blog was to have one post up each week.
My book has been taking me away from you. “Guide to CFO Success”, to be published by Wiley & Sons in 2014, is taking a lot of my time. I delivered my first chapter to the publisher on Monday. I must say that writing a book is very different than writing a blog.
The goal of putting my book together is to take a lot of the thoughts that I have been developing on what it take to become (and remain) a successful CFO. Readers of my blog will be familiar with some of the themes mentioned in the book. The book however will stand on its own, and provide strategies to current and future CFOs for getting the best out of their career and delivering their best to their employer.
I’d like to thank the support of my CFO Advisory Group for the feedback they are giving me as I prepare my book. These Advisors have been giving of their time every week for the past 2 months and have committed to do so for the next couple of months via weekly surveys. When I was interviewed on DriveThruHR in March, I was asked at the end of the interview to let the listeners know who has inspired me the most recently. My CFO Advisors have inspired me, and continue to do so, as I put the effort in to write Guide to CFO Success.
I would also like to thank the CFOs that have agreed to be interviewed for my upcoming book. These high profile CFOs set aside a good portion of their busy schedule for me, and for you as well. Their insights and support and greatly appreciated.
I just wanted to tell you that I’m not ignoring you. I’m working to deliver content in another form, which hopefully you will find of value to you as well.
I’m not giving up on this blog either. I am aiming to continue to provide “Insights into the Mind of the CFO” in the coming months.
I am also continuing to publish CFO Moves, which is tracks CFO Movement across the USA every week. If you’ve never read CFO Moves before, you might want to join the 600 weekly subscribers that get CFO Moves delivered to their email inbox every Monday morning.
I’d like to end off with a special message to the person from a certain city in Asia that regularly visits my blog by searching Google for the keywords “CFO Success”: I would be happy to answer your questions about CFO Success directly – please email me.
