This past Monday we featured Kami Huyse, who shared her success at Not surprisingly, one of our most anticipated chats of the year was quite a successful one. For the third time in a row, our humble chat trended on Twitter – only for a few minutes, but it’s a great sign of progress.
In Kami’s first chat with us, she spoke on the topic of how to make your small business operate like a big business. She spoke from her personal experiences as CEO of Zoetica Media, and gave us examples that we could take home and use ourselves.
It’s easy to see why this was our most popular question:
Q5: How do you scale a small business to serve bigger clients? #wgbiz

Kami initially answered:
Q5: Big clients need to know that there is more than you to serve them. You do need a team. #wgbiz

She goes on to tell us specifically how to achieve this, which you can see in the upcoming section.
Introducing The Question and Answer Highlights
Up until now, we’ve been providing you with a complete transcript of every tweet sent out during the chat, and we’ll continue to do that. But now that the chat is becoming so active, and you’re all being so great about participating in the chat, it’s a big difficult to find the guest’s answers.
At the end of each Twitter chat summary, we’ll also produce a highlight of the questions from the host and the answers from the guest experts, until we find an easier way to feature both versions in one document.

We had another record-breaking chat this week, and are absolutely thrilled with your participation – we can’t become popular without you! Our collective 584 tweets had a potential reach 1,067,527 people, producing 8,870,877 impressions.
This month we will also be including the highlights of the chat at the end of the article, since the full record is a bit harder to follow the more people chime in.
But don’t forget to double-check the transcript to make sure you have followed all your new acquaintances. And remember that if you ever aren’t able to participate, we find that saving the date in advance on your schedule helps. It’s always the second Monday of the month.
Stay tuned between now and 2014!) Our next one is January 13, 2014 at Noon Eastern. Our guest will be announced in this column so be sure and subscribe. And don’t forget — in January we’re adding a second chat!
You can find a link to the archived transcript here, where you can view it online.
