Launch of magazine

This has been an exciting week with the launch of our magazine, Company.

Like any business venture, you worry that you are on the right track, that you’ve accurately sensed the pulse of your “community” and that the product you develop is both user- friendly and professional .

Well… judging from the instant response, it would seem we are “on the money” and everyone seems to love the magazine. We’ve heard that you like the size, the length and content of the articles, and that it is relevant and meaningful to you. Whew! Just keep the feedback coming – this is your magazine and we want it to meet your needs.

It’s been kind of a heady experience as we had coverage on CHCH TV, interviews with Media in Canada and Masthead, the magazine for publishers. As a novice at this, I felt a bit of an imposter. What is it that they say ….just fake it until you can make it. But as one member observed, this is intuitive. I know what I want out of a publication and I reckon that other busy women in business feel the same way. Time will tell. Meanwhile, we're reprinting so that we can keep up with the demand for copies!

My thanks to Chris Desforges who did such a wonderful job on the design, and my team of writers for pulling this off in such a short timeframe. And a special thanks to the advertisers who had faith in us, and came on board.
