I was thrilled to interview Linda Gilden and Linda Goldfarb about LINKED and personalities.  As you know, I have had a fascination with understanding personalities for some time now.

Gilden shares about how she attended a conference that had a small section on personalities and how it was the start of what she is sharing today.   In addition, Gilden is confident that this will be life changing for others.

Goldfarb shares how she realized her personality could intimidate people from just walking in the room.  Learning from this can change how you are perceived.

Gilden shares that personalities matter because relationships matters.  This is their first book in a series of ten.  Specifically, the next book coming out is for teachers.  The third release will be for parents.

Another key point to mention is that their book won the non fiction category while we were in Nashville.
