VT KnowledgeWorks Member Company Founder Writes a Sharp Post

I learned in the 90s from a do-it-yourself Doing Business As (DBA) and a do-it-yourself portfolio of technology-only stocks, that I don’t always know what I’m doing (even if I think I do).

I joined VT KnowledgeWorks, a business acceleration center for entrepreneurs with business incubation facilities (also my first client) and formed my company under the auspices of mentors, fellow founders, attorneys and accountants. Handshake Media, Incorporated, an S-corporation with one employee – moi – thrives because I have access to the equivalent of the expert personnel and extensive resources of a large, established corporation.

– excerpt from Just Because I Want the Market to Want Me Doesn’t Mean It Will by Anne Giles Clelland, founder of Handshake 2.0, named to Sharp Skirts's The Year in Sharp Posts: 10 Must-Reads of 2010
