Click on Everything I learned About Marketing to read full blog post.

Recently, two Cafe Joy members shared the story of how they are growing their businesses with a journalist from the American Express Open Forum. The article, 20 Important Lessons I Learned from my Marketing Mentor featured successful small business owners sharing their story of the first person who opened their eyes to a new way of thinking about marketing. From Seth Godin to Jay Abraham, relatives, professors and even Sarah Petty and The Joy of Marketing (yay!), these 20 tips are a fun read and are a peak inside who other successful business owners are studying.

Out of twenty business owners chosen to be featured, it’s amazing that TWO were Cafe Joy members! Both Lora Carr and Jason Cannon, shared what they’ve learned in their years in business from The Joy of Marketing and the marketing help they received.  We are so humbled to be considered in the same company as many of the great marketing minds of all time.

If you haven’t yet, check out the Open Forum. It’s an awesome community for small business owners that provides tools to connect and collaborate and articles from small business experts to get you inspired.
