As you may know, I moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, from my hometown of Washington, DC in 2006. Since arriving here, I've met a lot of wonderful people who have welcomed me and helped me and my family navigate around our adopted home city. Since arriving, I've been on the lookout for opportunities to connect with other Indie Business owners, and Charlotte has no shortage of them.
Most recently, my journey led me to Marc DeWalle and the North Carolina Startup Blog, which today features my first column. The North Carolina Startup Blog is a part of a worldwide system of blogs that celebrates the entrepreneurial and startup news from international cities, and also US cities from Ann Arbor to Phoenix and everywhere in between.
My column today features the short version of my entrepreneurial journey and includes a photograph of me and several Indies taken last summer after one of our marathon meetings on Capitol Hill to advocate on the FDA Globalization Act.
I am also excited that the North Carolina Startup Blog is one of several blogs that has agreed to syndicate the Indie Business Minute. Stay tuned for those announcements coming up soon. I hope that, like me, you are finding ways to use technology to share your unique message with the world.
Question: Writing for local publications is a great way to share your passion and knowledge with your local community. Have you considered writing for a publication in your hometown?
