I had the distinct pleasure of meeting and interviewing Melinda Emerson “Smallbizlady” for the February 2010 podcast. I first met Melinda via Twitter where she is well known for her weekly talk show #Smallbizchat. I was intrigued by her energy and her expertise in teaching entrepreneurs everything they need to know about launching and running a profitable business. Not to mention, nothing like Twitter to connect me with someone who is in my neck of the woods (Greater Philadelphia Area). I so love the global/local connection of the web! We recently sat down via phone to talk about her own story and her first book Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months: A Month-by-Month Guide to Start a Business that Works! which literally just became available for purchase.
Let me share a little bit about Melinda with you…
