Toot!*: Ambition is "the drive to thrive and stay alive"
Just a little "Toot!*" about the fact I got a message yesterday from Joel Welsh, the Chief Community Officer for the business web presence StartupNation.com. He wanted me to know that a comment of mine, from the site's community forum, had landed my "mug" on the StartupNation home page. Thanks, Joel - and thanks StartupNation.
(* If I don't "toot!" my own horn, no one else will.)
