A New(ish) Sort of Guild

January 5, 2009 § 7 Comments

In all the time I’ve been writing in this blog, I’ve spent little time introducing a business guild I am a part of.

From the beginning of this affiliation with the eSMArts Guild I have benefited. I have gained so much wisdom, so many ideas, so much forward momentum for myself and for our business, that I have to say thank you to each and every member.

Topping that list is a woman who has repeatedly given her all to her teammates and guild members. She has brought new ideas and new technologies into our awareness and boldly stepped into new avenues to test the waters for us.

Anna Lee Husband, designer and business owner, has been the backbone of our guild. She has supported countless business owners as they stepped into the arena of self-promotion. She has brought guild members and business owners together and provided us a forum where we can come together and learn from one another.

There are few words that I can offer to Anna Lee, and thank you seems so small and paltry. But I am grateful for the support, the comradarie, the guiding light, your own knowledge and your friendship.

Anna Lee has several businesses under her belt in addition to all she does for the eSMArts guild. Take a moment or two and visit Anna Lee on her websites. You’ll see what makes her a much appreciated asset in our community and guild.

    It’s great to read these wonderful things about Anna Lee and they are all true! I cannot see how she does all the things she is involved in AND helps eSMArts members! Her designs are truly great, very unique, and she is a perfectionist in all, so they are wonderful designs! I’m sure she appreciates your kind words! Teri http://sandtcreations.etsy.com

    Kim, what a wonderful tribute — You are such a love! Thank you so much for taking the time to feature our fabulous eSMArts team (and me too!).

    BTW, I found this feature using a great web tool called http://www.whostalkin.com/ so when I searched for my name, Voila!, I happened to find this article. What a pleasant surprise to find this!

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your efforts to support eSMArts team. We are so blessed to travel on this journey with you.

    Thanks too for sharing with us your experiences, your beautiful artwork, your friendship and kindness… Again Kim your loyal support for me and the group as a whole means more than I can express. I’m so proud to call you friend.
    ~Anna Lee

  • Bravo, Kim….. grand words about a grand woman.
    You have said what so few of us have given voice to.
    Thank you Kim for speaking for all of us.
    Thank you Anna Lee for making us all one.

    Wonderfully done. Esmarts and Anna Lee have helped launch an ever growing number of online business’. It’s nice to see some credit go to the originator of it all.

    Kim you have said this so great that there isn’t anything that can be added except for each and every one of us to say a big thank you to Anna Lee.
    Anna Lee has devoted endless hours to not only her business, but to making sure that her Team is run to the best of her ability. Let us not forget the wonderful moderators that are also devoting endless hours to help with this also.
    A big Thank You to Anna Lee and all who work tirelessly along side her.

    Hi Kim,
    I just found you through a local meet up group, and seeing you were from Green Bay had to stop over & say “Hi”! You do beautiful work, I’m anxious to see more and hope that we run into each other someday. I’m also adding your link on my blog under the “of local interest” link list, if you don’t mind. Time to break up those lists & sort them better, but for now, that’s where I’ll put you.
