Celebrating Our 5th Anniversary

Today, June 6, 2018 we are celebrating our 5th year of helping, connecting and informing entrepreneurs and startups. This is such an epic milestone.

I want to personally thank all of our readers and guest contributors. You are the reason I started this blog back in 2013.

Honestly, I didn't expect such a strong response when I started this blog. I created it as a way to share my own learning along my entrepreneurial journey. I also couldn't be happier to have such a great group of guest authors helping push it even further.

This is still my platform to help elevate others, both writers and entrepeneurs. So if you are a writer, an entrepreneur or both reach out and I'll do my best to use this platform to give you more eyes and ears. That is my sincere promise.
