Please join me in welcoming this week’s featured author Melinda F. Emerson who wrote the national bestseller Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months; A Month-By-Month Guide to a Business That Works (Adams Media 2010). Melinda is known to many as the “Small Biz Lady,” one of the country’s leading small business experts.
As a seasoned entrepreneur, professional speaker, and small business coach, Melinda develops audio, video and written content to fulfill her mission to end small business failure. As CEO of MFE Consulting LLC, Melinda educates entrepreneurs and Fortune 500 companies on subjects including small business start-up, business development and social media marketing. Forbes Magazine recently named her one of the Top 20 women for entrepreneurs to follow on Twitter. She hosts #SmallBizChat Wednesdays on Twitter 8-9pm ET for emerging entrepreneurs. She also publishes a resource blog (www.succeedasyourownboss.com).
This week Melinda will share insights on how businesses can better target their marketing dollars which will help to get more customers. Her guest post will be uploaded shortly.
This Thursday, August 11, at 2 p.m. ET, Melinda will be available for a full hour on Twitter (#bizbooks) to answer questions on starting and running a small business. When asking a question be sure to include #bizbooks in the Tweet so we can track it.
