(October 30, 2007) In 1993, I started interbiznet. In the beginning, the company was focused on marketing and recruiting. It was imagined as a consutling business. The internet was brand new and the business would help people integrate it into their businesses.
Over the years, interbiznet published a marketing newsletter, the Bugler and the Electronic Recruiting News each day. We've published a Recruiting Toolkit, routine industry analyses and tons of white papers. We believed, then as now, that content is the key.
Colleen Gildea has been my partner at interbiznet for the entire span of its existence. Most people don't know that she was one of the first (if not the first) advertising salespeople on the internet. While I believe that she actually sold the first online banner ad, there are those who would disagree.
Colleen nurtured and grew the business over the years. Wearing every imaginable hat, she made the business work when it shouldn't by being willing to do the things required by the moment. I distinctly remember seeing her driving, well, racing, a truck full of mailers across the Golden Gate Bridge to make a post office deadline. She's been the graphic designer, editor, bookkeeper, html goddess, salesperson, customer service czar, chief cook and bottle washer.
As some of you might have noticed, I've been building new things. The most obvious are my editorship at Recruiting.com and the Recruiting Roadshow. Both projects are gaining sustained momentum and taking more and more of my time.
I was surprised and pleased when Colleen pulled together a proposal to buy me out. By clearly marking out the lines of ownership, she'd be able to increase her return while gaining the freedom to innovate as she sees fit. I welcomed the opportunity and am happy to announce the change.
From today forward (and actually a little bit in the past), Colleen Gildea is the owner and operator of interbiznet. While my writing will appear here for the forseeable future, I am now a contractor. Colleen has her plans which I am sure she will unveil in the coming weeks and months.
I'm exited about both my prospects and the future of interbiznet. It's a bit like giving up a baby. Learning how to separate myself from the company will take some interesting levels of effort.
I want to take a moment to thank all of the long time readers who have followed our comings and goings over the years. Without your feedback and interest, interbiznet would never have been the shining star that it was and is.
If you are not a long term observer, the initial changes will be subtle. My writing will still be here.
