Craig Newmark has made it. The San Francisco based entrepreneur has made the Time Magazine list of The People Who Shape Our World. Congratulations Craig. Todays site, a far cry from his meager begining as an electronic bulletin-board list of area events, is now a famous web sales resource and a destination for thousands each day.
I write post this as a tmely reminder to every web entrepreneur, blogger and web merchant who has ever wondered if their efforts are worth it. One of the most enduring qualities of success is persistence. Successful people never give up. They learn to find new paths to success. As the old adage goes, "I can't do anything about the wind, but I can adjust my sails." As Seth might say, they may dip, but they never quit. Craig Newmark had a vision and a dream that he never abandoned. He is a winner and sets a bold standard for all web-preneurs.
Take in a fresh breath of hope from this prestigious award. We all share in Craig's success and celebrity. Follow his lead and repeat the mantra of a recent superhero, "Never quit, never surrender."
