A few weeks ago, I was asked by a local colleague, Amanda Rogalski, who teaches a class on Technology in Business at Grand Valley State University (GVSU) to guest lecture for one of her classes. I always like to share the knowledge I’ve accumulated with those interested in what I do, so naturally I jumped at the chance talk to students about the basics of WordPress and how it can be used to the benefit of businesses and individuals alike. Along with this, one of the things Amanda specifically asked me to talk about was my career path.
This month also marks four years since I got my start doing contract work for Mindscape at Hanon McKendry. How time flies.
In reflecting and mentally preparing my remarks for this class, one of thing things I couldn’t help but come back to was how grateful and fortunate I am for the opportunities I have to run my own business in the ever changing industry of SEO and Internet Marketing. Simply put, without the support I’ve received and continue to receive from friends, family, clients and colleagues, I would never have made it this far.
There are simply too many people to name in this blog post who have helped me along and gone out of their way to make sure that I succeed, but they know who they are and I wanted to take this opportunity to say a genuine thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do. From my associates who continue to provide a high level of service for me and my clients, to my colleagues who have continued to provide support and guidance (not to mention leads to keep me gainfully employed), to my family who’ve supported me even when things were not always easiest, to my clients themselves who come to me from as far south as Dallas TX and as far east as Israel, I sincerely thank you.
