Work It Wednesdays began on whim, September 2, 2015. Blogger/Writer, Derek J. Murphy decided to share some encouragement for leaders on his social media feeds, as an attempt to encourage himself. The response was so good, that he decided to share some more nuggets the next week, but it it still wasn’t something that he was planning to do on a regular basis. By the next week, September 16th, Murphy knew he had something great.
“I didn’t set out to do anything formal, I was just sharing principles that I have picked up along the way. The more I shared, the more people were connecting to the idea,” says Derek.
Since then, the nuggets of wisdom and encouragement have been transformed to a weekly forum, with hundreds of people engaged. Hashtagged #WIW, #buildingleaders, Work It Wednesdays is designed to do just that; build leaders.
