In March 2023, one of the largest online networks – Alignable for small businesses chose the results in its annual national search for leaders amongst their peers. At the same time, these results were for those who have gone above and beyond their peers in their community.

So, with over 7.8 small business owners; this was quite an honor.

Because I was chosen as the winner of Peabody Business Person of the year; my Alignable profile features a special badge.

In addition to being named business person of the year; also, my company and myself are highly recommended by others on Alignable.

Because of this honor, I’m excited to see what the future holds. Maybe, another book. Or, more designs will be added to Spread Shop and Threadless. And, of course, the unknown.

How the Winners were Selected

The contest ran from January 9, 2023, until February 17, 2023.

Since there were over 226,000 votes and 51,000 testimonials; it was a huge jump from prior years. At the same time, this year’s nominees were chosen for helping their peers and providing valuable services during challenging times.

In fact, the process to choose the winners was selected after careful consideration.

However, many chosen winners are still struggling and trying to recover their revenue before COVID.

When I closed my prior Wholesale Women’s Apparel Office and decided to transition my business to blogging, freelance writing, and consulting; it was a huge undertaking.

Since I’m terrible with social media and technology; I always feel; I’m a few steps behind my peers. Check out my Like Love Hate Social Media Relationship post to read about my challenges with social media.

When I owned LRB & Associates which was a Wholesale Women’s Apparel Sales Office; I had exclusive territorial rights for New England territory. In addition, I worked with major retailers in New York and was a Sales Manager for many of my Fashion Manufacturers.

Also, I was part of fashion week for 24+ years. Wow, I’m really aging myself!

When I made the decision to close LRB & Associates; it was a difficult decision. Check out Lynne’s Fashion Journey post to learn more about me and my journey.
