Happy Birthday Africa Ready for Business!

I just noticed that this blog has now passed the one year mark.

It is my hope that you have enjoyed this 1st year of blogging on Africa Ready for Business. What we have tried to do here is to illustrate how Africa's free market economies have been on the rebound and are providing the means for their respective groups of citizens to empower themselves to achieve their needs and wants. I hope that this is what we have done.

As for how blogging has the last year of my life...The differences between the "before " and "after" for me have been quite stark. Prior to blogging my personal mission was the same as it is today but my daily activities were, for the most part, out of line with my goals. Where the change is even more evident is in my rolodex. If you had seen it a year ago it would have looked like the rolodex of someone who was all over the board, so to speak. But today there is a more of a specific type of a profile within my contact list-there are more professionals on the other end who are already doing business in or within the African continent or they might like to, than not. This means a lot to me. For that I have you, the reader, to thank-thank you!

My dream for this blog has been to make it a platform for multiple bloggers( a group blog) to be able to post stories on entrepreneurship in Africa. We managed to find a stellar writer in Branded, however, overall we haven't fared well in this category. But maybe in the big scheme of things it's ok-because within a few days I will be unveiling such a platform and it will be published on a different system alltogether. So, we would like your opinions on what you'd like to see more of this year from this blog. Please let us know what you might like more of in the upcoming year. In summary the year has been great-thank you all!

Of course, I love your comments. But, if you can't comment at this particular time- but would like to let us know that you were here; please sign and View my guestbook
