The 10 People You Need to Follow into 2010

You made a resolution to be better this year. You can keep that commitment. Here are the people I am following into 2010:

Elizabeth Marshall

Elizabeth Marshall

Elizabeth Marshall @lizmarshall If you are author, want to be an author or like learn from authors, you need to tune Liz in. I just starting working with Liz and I saw immediate financial results.

Mike Michalowicz (pronounced mi-CAL-o-witz) @tpentrepreneur  This guy has it together. Who would have thought that a guy that wrote a book called Toilet Paper Entrepreneur could be so successful? Want small biz help online? Call Mike. Want to know how make killer videos online? Call Mike. I will be calling Mike alot this year.

Tim Sanders @sanderssays I can’t but be be disappointed when I meet most biz celebrities. Tim Sanders is the exception. I have read all his books and when I interviewed him on the radio, everything coming out of his mouth was insighful and actionable. Listen up!

Chris Brogan @chrisbrogan You may be the one person in the world not following him at this point. Chris’ blog is the only blog I read everyday religiously. If you want to use social media in business, you need to read Chris.

Scott Stratten @unmarketing I met Scott at BlogWorld when he was wearing a shirt that said “What happens in Vegas, Stays on Twitter”. If you want to learn how to engage on the web, talk to Scott. He knows “web”.

Becky McCray @BeckyMcCray Take it from an urban business guy; you can learn a heck of alot from small town entrepreneurs like Becky. They have been creating communities for many years before all of us tried to do it.

Anita Campbell @smallbiztrends The best small business content anywhere on the planet. Period. Get educated by Anita.

Cassie Phillips @webwallflower This is one sharp and connected Gen-Yer. She is a Social Web event planner, attender, and promoter.

Shashi Bellamkonda @shashib He is the social media swami at Network Solutions and speaker on how business uses all types o social media to connect with customers. Want to see the future? Talk to Shashi.

Penelope Trunk @penelopetrunk She is the kind of writer that incites a riot in your soul. Penelope is never boring and like a good writer, she forces you to choose sides.

Rieva Lesonsky, @rieva Now that she has “escaped” from Entrepreneur Magazine, you can read Rieva UnPlugged. Now one understands the trends in small business better than Rieva.

Who are you following into 2010?

    Barry, I’m very honored to be one of the 10 people you plan to follow this year. Thanks for adding me to your list and I hope I get to follow you a lot more at conferences and events and learn a lot.
    I still recollect your talk on how a small business can bounce at the Small Biz Technology Summit in NY 2007.

    Well, it’s always hard to pick just a few folks, but here are two amazing individuals:

    Deb Brown, @debworks for excellent, practical small business and small town knowledge.

    Amber Naslund, @ambercadabra for her recent focus on business skills in the social business.

    In 1986 Michael received the slam soak contest and became thinking about actively playing a bigger part within the designing from the Air Jordan collection.
    Most salespeople worth their salt can smell a desperate buyer a mile away.
    For the technology right after Eighties, almost everyone get older with seeing Japanese animated and also
    anime, like “Doraemon”, “Slam Dunk”, “Saint Seiya” et cetera.
