Ryan Holmes - Founder & CEO, HootSuite - While reading Small Business, BIG Vision, I kept thinking one thing: These guys get it! In a world where information is coming at us from all directions, you've got to know how to focus on the good stuff and filter out the rest. Let me be your filter on this one--this book is the good stuff!
Craig Newmark - Founder of Craigslist

. I think having a vision is what's made Craigslist so successful, and I'm applying the same principle to my new initiative CraigConnects.
