Learn From The Best

by Sue Pitts on August 22, 2008

Entrepreneur Magazine has announced their nominees for the 2008 Entrepreneur of the Year Awards at http://www.entrepreneur.com/eoy/index.html.  They have 2 categories.  There is a category for established entrepreneurs and one for emerging entrepreners.  I was surprised to see that the nominees have down to earth stories.  Stories that could easily happen here in Southwest Iowa.  Often times we tend to think that in order to have the next best business, we need to invent the next google or find the solution to rising gasoline prices  These people have simply developed great products.  And they obviously have done something right along the way to get where they are.   I encourage anyone starting a business or who is already in business to check out the nominees.  Look through their websites and take notes.  You just might pick up some pointers.

Nominees are:
Established Entrepreneurs -
VerveLife, Vosges-Haut Chocolat, Volusion, Simply Self Storage, The Great American Hanger Company

Emerging Entrepreneurs
SimplySoles, PatioShoppers, Inc, Sweetriot, ViewGuard Brand, Inc, BabyGags, Inc.
