As another Thanksgiving passes, I wanted to take a quick second to thank those who have been so helpful to me throughout this year. Below are some great people who if you don't know already, you might want to.
Michael Ian Cedar- A dear friend with his own awesome blog. Michael has been supportive of my move from teaching full time to bootsrapping this business.
Joshua Rivedal- One of the PLAE Alumni who just started his own blog. Josh has been a great sounding board for me as I continue to develop my projects.
Richard Biever- Founder of Singing on Stage productions, Richard has been kind enough to give me the opportunity to speak on two of his panels and it has been great.
Amanda Slavin- Introduced me to the book The Tipping Point and changed my view of connecting forever.
Katrina Ylimaki- PLAE Alumni and one of the founders of the West Village Musical Theatre Festival, is always supportive of my endeavors.
My BNI Chapter 46- A really great group of folks who have been supportive of my work thus far and have helped me make some great connections
Lenny Schwartz- One of my best friends who has produced shows that I have written and worked with me now for 15 years
Lilli Wosk- Another PLAE Alumni who has been so supportive of what I do and so helpful
Robin Carus and Jennifer Ajemian of J&R Creative- Whenever I have had a casting need or was looking for someone for a project they have both been there and have also been there when I've needed a friend.
Ken Davenport- For always being a great mentor who I can come to with questions and challenges.
Jessica Porter- For being a part of my first stab at a networking group and supporting the work I do.
The list could go on and on, but these are just a handful of the influential people in my life who have been there for me as I have navigated the waters of entrepreneurship. Make sure you take the time today to thank those who have helped you. It's important.
