Holy Moly! I am so honored to have garnered so many votes — 2,024 to be exact — to win one of the top spots in the Community Choice category of the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards.
There were 300+ people in my category and some are really BIG fish (Seth Godin, Mari Smith, Peter Shankman, Dave Ramsey, Brendan Burchard, Jonathan Fields, Gary Vanerchuck and more amazing guru’s that I love!) so it means even more to me that my community came out in such force to support my nomination.
It was fun to see the votes roll in — I confess to checking the polls a little too often for someone who professes to be nonplussed — and it was really humbling to read some of the comments from my business friends and associaites.
What means the most to me is that the work I do helps and enlightens others.
And this award is a great symbol for me to keep me motivated to create more and better projects to help more jewelers grow and prosper.
Thanks to all who voted and commented.
