A Few Words from Greg
Its hard to believe four years have passed since the launching of the Southern Oregon Business Journal on August 10, 2015. But it has.
The nine months leading up to the first publication was filled with enthusiasm and encouragement from many people for whom I have great respect and admiration. And too, from Dede who will be celebrating with me in September our Fiftieth wedding anniversary. She was quick to jump in and help when she could see the stress of a deadline getting to me, or to remind me of an appointment or business networking event that may have slipped my mind. She is my greatest treasure.
Extending the journal’s reach to include 15 southern Oregon counties and the 1.5 million people who call our end of the state home has been, in a word, “awesome”. Every community, every business, every enthusiastic entrepreneur, and all the dreamers have a story to tell. Recent changes, and newer ones as well, have moved the journal in a truly modern and impressive way. Software upgrades and technical expertise make us function better than ever while keeping a finger on the rapid pulse of change. There is no such thing as standing still. You’re either getting ahead or falling behind.
With Jim Teece becoming an integral partner in the business journal in the last few months, we expect to be on the leading side of positive change for the foreseeable future.
Here’s to four years! More importantly, here’s to all the anniversaries to come.
