We have had a great time trying to help educate and strengthen the industry with our efforts here. Unfortunately, not everyone shares our vision. It is pretty sad because this site was never about making money. We did this out of love and to try to “pay it forward.” We have followed the lead of many others in the industry in trying to give back without expecting anything in return. We won’t go into to many details because we aren’t lawyers and we don’t know what we can and cannot say. Anyway, we have been contacted and told we are no longer legally allowed to operate this site. We appreciate all of your support over the last 2 years. This started as a simple idea and developed into a great resource and community. I’m sure we could try to fight this but, we just simply don’t have the time, money or resources. So, it looks like this is the last stop. It is a pretty sad state of affairs though, when you try to do something out of the genuine goodness of your heart. You spend countless, thankless hours researching, writing, traveling and really trying to build something great, only to have it all taken away from you in the blink of an eye. It’s not fair. But life isn’t. If we had it all to do over again we would. We met amazing people. Helped a ton of people with questions and had some of our own answered along the way. You have all been instrumental in our success here and for that we are forever thankful. We are going to use this time off to work on our businesses that were actually created to make a profit. In the meantime, the site should be up for a few days longer so, definitely take advantage of the content while you still can. Again, our sincerest thanks to all of you and our apologies that it had to come to such an abrupt end. We wish we had something whimsical to say. Some dramatic farewell speech. Perhaps, softly in the background you hear “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” playing
Instead we leave you with this:
“Be well, do good work, and keep in touch.” – Garrison Keillor
