As this is the month of giving thanks, I would like to recognize those who contribute to my personal and professional success.
Thanks to my partners Alan Campell, Errol Laborde and the outstanding staff of Renaissance Publishing. They have worked hard this year on new projects such as New Orleans Sushi Fest, monthly New Orleans Magazine Hobnobber events, the huge St. Charles Avenue Magazine fundraising event for Operation Homefront – Wine, Dine & Design, the launch of Biz New Orleans and so much more. They produced more than 100 outstanding projects this year and I am proud of each and every one of them.
I also must credit the key organizations that help me and our media properties grow, such as Entrepreneur Organization of Louisiana, Legatus New Orleans, the Jefferson Chamber and other area chambers and business councils, as well as the City Regional Magazine Association. These groups provide support and opportunities to exchange ideas with other professionals and to learn from their successes and frustrations.
Finally, I have so much gratitude for my family and friends – my family for all their love and support, and my friends and business associates for being sounding boards to bounce ideas off of and for giving me their honest feedback.
I hope you will all use this month of thanks to reach out to your family, friends and business connections and thank them for helping you grow – whether personally or professionally. We can’t do it alone!
