I enjoy the features in your magazine because they are diversified and you give good references. I can take the magazine anywhere. Unlike other magazines, The Network Journal is not repetitive. Every issue is well thought out and real. When you talk about business, you present it in a way that appeals to all, yet you still convey solid business information. There is no fluff in your magazine. You are all about substance, and I am able to read it from cover to cover. As the owner of a tax business, I have been pleased to find case examples and suggestions for business owners in your stories. I enjoy seeing other people being successful in doing what I am doing.

I have been a subscriber to your magazine for a year and find it very useful as I take the necessary steps to start my own business. Your lawyers issue (Dec./Jan. 2002) gave me a great starting point to get legal information for small business owners like myself in managing the uphill battle to establish my home-based travel agency. TNJ has been a great source of information.

Your past 40 Under-Forty event at Columbia University was a gratifying experience, since it gave me an opportunity to interact with role models for people like myself. The networking part of the event really gave me a chance to hear and appreciate the sacrifices and accomplishments that these young people are making in the business world and on their own. It is good to see that not every young African-American professional has been over taken by the music industry.

Your magazine is insightful and informative. It is good to see a publication that deals with black urban professionals and highlights their contributions to our society. There needs to be more publications like yours that will open more doors for new 40 Under-Forty candidates. It is good to know that you don�t have to be a basketball player or a rap star to be successful. The urban magazines should look at you as an example to give their readers new standards and goals to achieve in their lives.
