If you have been reading my blog over the years, you know I am a huge fan of Tracey Jones, President of Tremendous Life Books and her late father Charlie “Tremendous” Jones. Tracey and her father have written and published tons of great leadership books (a passion of mine).
About ten years ago, Tracey was living in Austin, Texas when someone dropped off a bunch of puppies near the company where she worked. Tracey had never been around dogs before, but she picked up one with a blue merle coat and as we all know, the rest was history - she was smitten.
Over the years, Mr. Blue, an Australian shepherd/Basset hound mix, has been her constant companion and as taken on the role of Chief Motivational Hound.
Mr. Blue, with Tracey’s assistance, has pawthored a book: True Blue Leadership: Top 10 Tricks, and they are about to embark on a book tour. They are returning to all the cities they’ve lived in together. All proceeds go the the Books for Tremendous Living Foundation and the local animal rescue charities of choice. There are some amazing organizations hosting and helping Tracey and Mr. Blue with this.
Here’s the link to the tour info which will be updated weekly. If you’ve got friends, family, or contacts in Harrisburg, PA, Saint Louis, MO, Austin, TX or Chattanooga, TN, this will be a fun event for them to attend!
There will be another tour in the spring as Mr. Blue has been asked to be on an animal telethon in Las Vegas!
If you get the chance, I encourage you to attend one of Tracey’s events and meet Mr. Blue. If you would like to host a future event, please let Tracey know and she and Mr. Blue will pack up the van and head your way.
