A big week

The Blue Sweater, written by Acumen Fund CEO Jacqueline Novogratz, hits stores today.  Bruce Nussbaum, editor of Business Week, says the book will “will make you cry as it makes you think.”  And Nick Kristoff called Jacqueline “one of the most interesting innovators in aid and development.”  I found the book to be incredibly powerful, honest, forthright, and challenging to people who want simple answers to complex problems.  It is also a beautiful personal narrative and a page-turner, and I hope you’ll buy a copy, read it, share it with a friend, and spread the word.  And if you like the book, let people know.

And tomorrow, March 4th, is the deadline for applicants for the marketer I’m looking to hire.  The buzz has been incredible, and the blog entry has been viewed more than 13,000 times.

Know someone great?  Please send them along.

(Oh, and we’ve been getting a lot of calls, emails, etc. that seem to assume that “just sending in my application” won’t be enough. It will be, as long as you follow the directions on the Squidoo lens.)
