It’s the end of the year, and Small Biz Survival is almost one year old. Time for some thank you’s.
Thank you to Glenna Mae, Jeanne and Karen for joining me as contributing authors. All three of you are very busy, and I’m glad to have each and every one of your contributions. Double thank you to Maesz for handling all my posting during my vacation and for keeping the readers updated while I was recuperating from my broken leg.
Actually, a big thanks to Zane. His writing seems to run along many of the same thought lines as mine, and I have greatly enjoyed our collaborations. Who else gets excited about the subject of failure?
A huge thank you in neon lights to Chris Brogan.
Chris was my first online buddy in the new media world. More than just collaborating and sharing ideas, Chris keeps pushing me to expand and do more. Chris has been a good friend, and now he has gone and gotten himself famous, or at least really well known and exceptionally well-connected, not to mention incredibly busy. Going over our comments and cross-posts for the last year, I can see what a good friend Chris has been. Chris, thank you.
Chris helped me dream up and build the Great Big Small Business Show, as a part of his Grasshopper New Media. Thank you to Benjamin Yoskovitz, Bill Gregory, Chris Brogan, Colleen Wainwright, Heidi Miller, Jon Swanson, Laura Allen, Phil Gerbyshak, Steve Rucinski, Ted Demopoulos, Tony D. Clark and Zane Safrit for putting your time, effort and knowledge into contributing. Together, we built a great big resource for small business. It lasted almost six great months, and I know you all would eagerly continue if I would. Another large thank you to Ben Yoskovitz, for all his help with the Great Big Small Business Show. Thank you, Ben!
Thank you to Ted Demopoulos for interviewing me for his book, and Rhona for inviting me to be in her research (even though I didn’t quite fit). Thank you, Pat Matthews for allowing me to interview you, twice! Pat shared wonderful personal knowledge, and I’m glad you put up with my technical difficulties. Thank you to Aaron Morris of Self-Counsel Press for sending me a book to review. Watch for the review in January.
