Letter from the Editor

Joseph W. Norman
The Notable and Newsworthy: VIP Profiles, Issue 3, February 4, 2007

Happy February Readers,

The next few weeks will be an exciting time for us at Notable and Newsworthy for several reasons. We have some very interesting people scheduled to be interviewed and we have added a few new members to our writing team. A website is also in development so you, our readers, will be able to find all of these great people's profiles online. This will add a whole new dimension to the experience and value we desire to add with our services.

I attended a leadership conference at Paychex Headquarters in Rochester on Saturday. It was a worthwhile experience and I would like to second his motion to get involved with this type of workshop if you have the chance. I have been blessed to be a part of dozens of these leadership development conferences and they have all taught me something new or provided me with some new friends. Personal development is something I have taken seriously, which leads to this week's book recommendation. Recently, I re-read John C. Maxwell's, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. This is an in-depth analysis of his best selling leadership principles. If a lack of spare time hinders the more developed analysis, then his Leadership 101: What Every Leader Needs to Know, would be more worthwhile. This is a one sitting read that covers many of his ideas on the subject.

This week's features are Lisa G. Burns and Deputy A. Gary Miller. Lisa Burns, a child of the 60's, is the Tourism Director of Livingston County while Deputy Miller, a retired educator and military man, is the current Administrative Assistant to the Livingston County Sheriff.

Please continue to support our growth by telling people you think might benefit about our newsletter and providing us with your constructive criticism. Also, keep us abreast of potential interview candidates or people you would like to read about and most importantly keep reading (and enjoying) our newsletter. Feel free to contact us at viprofile@gmail.com, with any questions, comments, or reactions.

Note: Attached is also the Notable and Newsworthy Objective Letter for those of you joining us this week. Welcome and enjoy!

Thank You,
