News & Opinion: Ask 8cr! on Twitter

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:34 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Years ago, I started an email list with some of our InBubbleWrap audience called "Ask 8cr!" Each month, I'd collect emails from the group about what business challenges they faced, then I would pick a book and review it in light of that situation, and send a copy of the book to the submitter.

Later, we incorporated some of these interactions at our blog. Now, we want to try to extend that to an even larger audience on Twitter.

Not only do we absorb a ton of books on a daily and weekly basis, but we've been doing it for over 27 years. We know this knowledge is helpful. As information continues toward overload, it can be difficult to find value for each individual challenge or situation. Assisting with that is part of the role that we play.

So, if you're on Twitter, send us a tweet with your challenge and we'll respond. We're betting that others likely have a similar issue, but haven't had a chance to ask. This will offer help in an even bigger way. And occasionally, who knows? We might even send you the book for free.
