This is definitely the most awkward portion of the book because I know I might miss someone, so I'll keep it brief. This is really a big thank-you to everyone who made this book possible. My mom for being "my personal editor"—even though sometimes she edits and then accidentally deletes those changes and suggestions. Lauren Lynch, Linda Indig, and everyone at John Wiley & Sons for taking a chance on a young author. Marcie for not complaining when I spent many a Saturday in a coffee shop to work on the book (and for her loving support). Inspiration from some of my favorite authors, entrepreneurs, and big thinkers including Seth Godin, David Meerman Scott, Chris Brogan, Daniel Pink, John Jantsch, Brian Solis, Tony Hsieh, and many others. Encouragement always from my friend (and attorney) Jeff Michelman who has helped me immeasurably since I first got into business. The hundreds of guests on RISE, friends online and off (a shoutout to everyone on Facebook and Twitter), the RISE community of entrepreneurs that keep me going, all of my family, and you.
