A YEAR WE WON’T FORGET
Business View – December 2020 / January 2021 / Publisher’s Note
By Leigh Perry-Herndon, VP Communications & Marketing
Remember the excitement of celebrating your child’s first birthday? That’s how we feel here at the Mobile Area Chamber after launching the new Business View one year ago. I have to think hard when remembering the trepidation our staff felt in advance of that issue hitting the street. Would our readers enjoy it? Would the photos stand out? How many advertisers would support us in the coming year?
We never could have imagined that a pandemic would threaten the magazine before it really got off the ground. (Thankfully, that didn’t happen!)
I’m proud of our work this year, and everyone involved in the magazine has put in their fair share of sweat and tears bringing it to your mailbox and inbox every month.
Our incredibly talented photographers have blown us away, as have our committed writing, editing, designing and printing teams. Publishing a magazine in today’s market is no easy feat. If it weren’t for our members who continue to financially support it by advertising, we would not be here today, ready to tackle some terrific topics in 2021. Please support our advertisers. Without them, the Business View would not exist.
On a separate note, it’s soon time for all of us to reset and recharge. Have a blessed holiday season surrounded by those you love the most! We are excited about what’s to come in 2021.
