The success of my business depends on finding and working with the right partners. StartupNation’s member community, with its search and buddy list feature has been invaluable in not only finding but also nurturing relationships that have helped grow my business. Thank you SUN! - PhilPixLit
I love your web site. It’s very inspirational. I started my business full-time last year, but sometimes running my own business is scary. That’s where your articles full of helpful information telling me what to do next are extremely helpful. By the way, I have read your book no less than three times, and each time I discover something else I can use. - Fatima S.
Hello from southwest Virginia,Boy am I juiced! This website is truly incredible! After continued reading for weeks on so many success stories I have finally decided to take a big leap myself and try and bring my product (special sauce) to market. - Clint T.
StartupNation is a gift to entrepreneurs. In one place, I have access to all sorts of resources that help me grow my startup. I wish I had stumbled upon these free resources before I'd paid for books and software to help me write my business plan -- because I wound up scrapping those and using the ones from SUN instead. Practical and helpful stuff here. - Lynne S.
I have no - repeat, no - business training or experience. All I had was a ten-year-old dream about having my own personal-check printing business. And around three months ago, I decided to fulfill that dream. I spent lots of time on the web, and then I stumbled across StartupNation. All of a sudden I didn't feel alone in the world. There was an article devoted to outsourcing, another on protecting my idea, a third on direct mail advertising, another on website creation. One on who answers my phone, one on cash flow, WOW! About a quarter of what I read directly addresses issues I face. And that's why I am enthusiastic about Startup Nation, and grateful beyond words. - Y G H.

These are among the many reasons that StartupNation is "my space". A heartfelt thanks to Jeff, Rich, Joel, the StartupNation team, and especially to all the participants. - Community member "zman"
SuN is a dynamic and collective inspiration....more than your typical static compilation of "how to's" and "what if's". At SuN you can see the strife and you can feel the changes that people are really going through. You can work with them through their pain and revel in their success. It's what makes you want to be there. It's what makes you care. - Community member “Eric”

It's as if you knew in advance what stage I was up to, and advised me accordingly!

I listen to you guys on the radio all the time. Enough times, I guess, that you motivated me to make good on a promise to myself to start my own business. Thank you! - Linda C.
I have just finished your book, not a minute ago, and I must tell you how wonderful it is. I've always been very motivated but I didn't know where to start and lacked faith that I could truly be an entrepreneur. Your site gave me that guidance and confidence I need to push me through the door of opportunity. - Michael B.
Last wednesday was one of my lucky days, I wandered into Borders and the first title that captures my attention is your book. After four years of owning my business, I have been feeling a little wiped out...and needed some new stimulation, the energy in your site came through and suddenly I feel the passion building up again……. I still need some help, and your site is the first step towards setting this business on course. thank you, I am glad I found you guys! - Maria Elena D.
The stuff I read from your website and emails...it's just so valuable. It is by far the best, free online subscription forum on the planet.

Hey guys, I'm new to your site and I admit that it is the coolest site I've ever been to. Why? Because it has everything to do with what I've been trying to do and learn to do since I was a kid. I'm 21 now. - Tony T.
AMAZING SITE! I've read tons of books and I have not gathered even a tenth of the information in books as I have today at StartupNation. Thank you all for this wonderful service you provide to those of us who are now going it alone as entrepreneurs! - Bonnie B.
I just wanted to say that I get a lot of newsletters in my day job (working in the nonprofit sector) but none I read as happily as I do yours. I find your newsletters substantially informative, but in addition, your uplifting energy also comes through, and that's what makes them such a pleasure to read. - Liat S.
