Shirley Fine Lee's Blog 2BProductive Acknowledges 3 Years of Business and Leadership Tips

To Be Productive blog adminstrated by author Shirley Fine Lee offers the latest business and leadership thoughts from associate consultants and other authors. This blog is celebrating 3 year anniversary of posts by offering a comment contest to giveaway business books.

Dallas, TX, May 25, 2011 --( The “To Be Productive” blog at had a three-year anniversary in April and passed 200 posts in May. This blog is administered by Shirley Fine Lee. It is a way for business professionals to share ideas, tips, suggestions, inspirations, and expertise with others who want to become more effective and productive both personally and professionally. Topics on the blog have included: employee attitude, professional communication, customer service, leadership development, motivation techniques, team building, time management, training programs, and of course productivity improvement. Also, business and leadership book summaries were added to the blog recently.

Each year this blog marks the anniversary with a Constructive Comments Contest to increase expertise sharing with readers as extensions of the blogger’s postings. This is not a typical comment contest, which is usually to increase the volume of comments. Instead this contest asks for quality comments that build upon the topic in the post upon which the comment is logged. Any current or archive post may be commented on using the blog labels list to find a post that is in the reader’s area of interest or experience. The contest will run the month of June 2011. The blog moderator will check for new comments added each week to any of the existing posts to determine if any qualify for the contest. The contributor who seems to have provided the most helpful comments to expand on the post topic will be awarded a business or leadership book as a prize. The contest will only be open to residents of the United States. Contest rules are available from a link in the menu near the top of the blog site.

The 2bproductive blog was designed to help others who want to become more effective and productive both personally and professionally. The blog will continue to offer different ideas and perspectives from a variety of business consultants, trainers, authors, and other professional guests. Authors who post on the blog include: Deborah Avrin (“The Management Map: Navigation Tools for the New Manager”), Shirley Fine Lee (“R.A!R.A! A Meeting Wizard's Approach” or “T.A.P.P. Steps in Time Management”) and Mary Anne Davis ("The Sales Messenger: 10 Lessons for Sales Success in Your Business and Personal Lives").
