First, thanks. Thanks for your time. You’re taking it, giving it, and sharing it with me. That means a lot. I’m staring 2018 in the face, and I want to love what I see. I believe I understand my purpose in this world (I see life in story, and I am at my best when I am exhorting and advocating). I’m feeling a big push internally to let that purpose become more purposeFULL. Right now, I’ve got several thoughts rumbling around in my head – especially around three words that just might become my theme for the year: 1) Be resolute. 2) Go small. 3) Fill the space. Interestingly enough, I’ve written articles for QARA about these three words that will publish in January. You get a sneak peek at both (the files are attached). So, here’s the deal. I would love your insight. Below are some directed questions. I hope you are able to answer every question; however, if the subject matter is something you are either not familiar with or uncomfortable addressing, that’s OK. And as I shared on Facebook, if after seeing my questions, you decide that you don't have energy or time or whatever, please reply and let me know. You'll not offend me at all, and it's actually better for me to know that you've chosen not to participate. Ready? Go! 1. In one or two sentences, describe who Ronne Rock is.2. In one or two sentences, describe what Ronne does.3.

What are the three or four primary overarching themes of Ronne Rock’s articles, books, and messages (speeches, FB posts, IG posts, etc)? NOTE: This is about themes, rather than topics. And this should include her full portfolio of work, excluding marketing messages written for ministries and businesses.5. Who, in your opinion, is Ronne’s tribe? Describe the person who is best-suited for Ronne’s writing style and themes. And yes, it’s OK to have a primary and secondary tribe (or a big family dinner and a kid’s table, if you’re into food like she is).6. Let’s be honest. Ronne writes about a lot of stuff (her own life, #kitchentherapy, stories from her journeys with the vulnerable, leadership – for several different audiences). If she was going to focus on one major theme for 2018 (in all her messages), what should it be? OR is it OK for her to focus on multiple themes - and if you answer "yes," please identify three major themes she does best.7. What would you like to see MORE of from Ronne in 2018? What would you like to see LESS of from Ronne in 2018?8A. How do you currently receive information and updates from Ronne? (check all that apply): Email - when a blog posts on her website Email - a TinyLetter because I'm part of her TinyTribe Facebook posts on her personal profile Facebook posts on her writer's page Facebook posts in a group Instagram Instagram stories Twitter I rarely see any updates from Ronne. I don't want to see updates from Ronne 8B. Of all the communication channels, which is your preferred way to receive information and updates from her? Why?8C. What if Ronne wanted to start sending out an email/newsletter on a regular basis - with some personal thoughts, maybe a link or two to articles she's written or things that have inspired/challenged her. Would this be of interest to you? Why or why not? (if you are currently subscribed to her TinyLetter, it would be similar).9. Ronne is currently (or still, depending upon your point of view) working on a book about grace-filled leadership, featuring principles learned from women who are transforming lives and communities in the U.S. and a number of developing countries around the world. The book also includes the one defining and essential trait that all the women share.a. Is this a book that you or someone you know would be interested in reading? Why or why not?b. In addition to the book, what other resources do you think would be beneficial in bringing the principles and stories to life?10. I don’t really have a 10th question, but 10 sounded like a great number. So, in this space, share anything else you think would be beneficial for me as I look at the next year. Oh, and let me know how I may return this huge favor – how may I support you, pray for you, bless you?PhoneThis field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
