First Time in Vegas, First Time at BlogWorld, and First Post for SmallBizCool

The ‘firsts’ abound

( 6:30pm, in flight bound for Nevada )

Blogging from 30,000 feet up helps expand perspective sometimes. And from that vantage point, I’m realizing these next few days will host a string of first-time experiences. It’s my first time to Las Vegas (have you been??) plus first time to experience the robust Blogworld Expo aka #bwe09 (are you here too?). The prospect for compelling conversations, great speakers (…Liz Strauss, Guy Kawasaki, Wendy Piersall, Tee Morris, Stephanie Michaels, a few just to start), and overall social tech wizardry couldn’t be stronger.

SmallBizCool series (& you)
Film director, marketing extraordinaire, and GrowSmartBiz blogger Mike Dougherty and I will host a new video series throughout the expo – called SmallBizCool.

With this SmallBizCool video series, we want to help amplify small business conversations at Blogworld – and fun! – with the vast array of entrepreneurs participating here.

  • Why are you and your business cool?!
  • How is social tech used to relate to customer communities?
  • What does success look like in your business?

Questions like these will launch our conversations for SmallBizCool (rumor has it Mike will sport some funky shades…). We aim to build a suite of quick cuts – 30 seconds here, 1 minute there – with different Blogworld folks in small biz.

Want to join us?
So if you’re here and in small business or running your own gig, please come say ‘hi’ for a video chat with our #SmallBizCool team (or just let us know where we can find you in Vegas!). Not able to make Blogworld in person? No sweat.

The series will be published on WomenGrowBusiness and other places, tagged #SmallBizCool as to find it online. Your comments are very welcome! Or you certainly can join in conversation via Twitter search too.

On that note
Thanks for being apart of the WomenGrowBusiness community and congrats on the work you do in leading small businesses. And remember for the next few days, ‘What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ … (or truthfully it just may end up on #SmallBizcool!).

What do you crave to learn from Blogworld – social tech, entrepreneurship, or see on the SmallBizCool videos?
