A new year. A new President. A new blog entry from Chris! Wow.

Yes, I admit it. I'm a blogging lame-o. What can I say: It's been incredibly busy and blogging has taken a back seat to, well, life. Or is it better to say I've left blogging by the side of the road? Probably.

I thought I'd rear my head on my weblog in search of sources I need ASAP. I'm looking for small business owners who are switching up their business models to respond to a tough economy. What changes are you making, what's happening in your industry, etc.?

Back to work. I'm sitting here listening to Devo's "Freedom of Choice." Did I mention that I'm a nerd, too? Happy 2009, everyone!

I'm getting started on an exciting book project with two journalist friends, and we're looking for people to interview for our book proposal. We're seeking public relations professionals, entrepreneurs and fellow journalists. Please drop me a note and I can tell you more. I'd rather not post the details here...

I'm looking for experts who can comment on marketing counterstrikes --- i.e., striking back at a competitor who is taking swipes at your product or service in its advertising (think Apple/Microsoft). I'm also looking for examples of counterstrikes that have worked (and haven't worked) over time.

I'm looking for experts who can discuss trends and issues around hiring a recruiter as an entrepreneurial business. I can't give away too much here, so drop me a note if you'd like to find out more.

In other news, my site has just been revamped and I'm pretty happy about it. We've updated the "about me" section, too.

I'm working on a book idea and yesterday our three-year-old daughter suggested I call it "Do Your Business". At her age, she doesn't see the humor in it. My husband and I, on the other hand, had quite a laugh over it at the dinner table. More soon...
