As many of you know, I left Profiles in History at the end of July. It was a very difficult decision. I was there for 14 years and probably could have stayed there until I retire. I made a lot of good friends and met some amazing people through Profiles. I will forever be grateful to Joe Maddalena for giving me the opportunity to learn and grow in an industry that he was and still is integral in building. Profiles will always reside in a special part of my heart.
However, as comfortable as I was at Profiles, I wanted to build something of my own. That desire was too strong to ignore. So now it is time to begin a new chapter for me. Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been doing the last two months. Well, for one, I started a company called Haxbee Enterprises. Haxbee is an Internet and social marketing consultation company that services the collectibles community. We offer solutions on inventory and data management, as well as advise on website development and social media presence.
We have already been busy working with some terrific partners in several upcoming projects. For example, in November we are working with an old friend of mine, Lorna Hart, and her company, Creative Assets Strategy, in bringing an art and culture event to The Chinese Theatres (formerly Mann’s Chinese Theatres). Next April we are joining forces with Scares That Care in a charity event at Monsterpalooza. There are other exciting things in the pipeline that will be announced in due time.
In the meantime, you can always keep track of what we’re doing at haxbee.com, where I will continue to blog about technology, social media, pop culture and collectibles. The blog is a useful platform for discussions, so please drop by and leave a comment or two. I look forward to connecting with all of you in some form or another very soon.
With warm regards,
