Thanks for your ongoing support and patience these past couple of months, especially while we were busy expanding the I C Bookstore on-line and launching the Virtual Book Tour for my next book, Working From Home & Making It Work©.

Everything has come together in great timing for the holidays. Please visit our on-line bookstore and check out the amazing works from authors and entrepreneurs just like yourself.

Also, for more business inspiration and insight, I invite you to click on the tab at the top called Virtual Book Tour and check out the blog stops already posted. Better yet, sign up to follow the tour and more in the side widget to the right, and receive a Free Chapter on Leadership from my new book!

If you’re local to central or north York Region, ON, consider joining us for a beautiful evening on Mon, Dec 17th from 5pm to 8:30pm, for a Fireside Chat & Book Signing with some of our Author Friends!

In closing, the I C Publishing team and I wish you great health, compassion, courage and meaningful success for 2013. Enjoy these moving words by Michael Josephson:

What Will Matter by Michael Josephson from

“Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end.

There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.

All the things you collected, whether treasures or baubles, will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.

Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear. So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.

The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away. It won’t matter where you came from, or on what side of the tracks you lived, at the end.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured? …

What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave.

What will matter is not your success, but your significance. What will matter is not what you learned but what you taught.

What will matter is not your competence, but your character.

What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many people will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.

What will matter are not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you. What will matter is how long you will be remembered, and by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. It’s not a matter of circumstance, but of choice.

Choose to live a life that matters.”
