August 29: Blogtalk Radio - Ask the Muse

Author Linda Cureton will be hosting a book discussion on her latest book
The Leadership Muse on BlogTalk Radio.

It will air
 Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at 7:00 pm.

Tune in to learn more and hear other flowers of leadership wisdom from the host's highly praised book, The Leadership Muse
