11. Alycia W. & Tamara E.: Events by WE Co-Founders

Cincinnati, Ohio

This has been a very blessed year, and “WE” thank God for the favor that he has extended towards us. We are thankful for the support from our families and friends. We are also thankful for our friends who have extended their time and talent to the success of our business.

12. Liz DiAlto: Fit, Healthy & Beautiful, Founder

New York, NY

Christmas came early for me at Marie Forleo’s Rich, Happy & Hot live event in NYC this November.  Taking in Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Center and learning with brilliant entrepreneurs all weekend fed the business corner of soul.   I left very clear about where I want to take Fit, Healthy & Beautiful in 2011. I deeply appreciate that the scope of what I can give to my clients.

13. Toni Duclottni: House of Haute, Inc. Founder

Dallas, TX

Definitely my family. It sounds so cliche, but it’s the truth. Being a mother to my children while overcoming personal challenges, helped me to regain ahold of what’s important in life; God, family, and health. Motherhood is the most rewarding part of my life. Success can be measured in an array of ways. For me, it’s also the never-ending flow of emails and messages that I receive and being able to encourage others – it is awesome!

14. Sotiria Krikelis: Relax Missy, Owner & Foundress

Queens, New York

I’m thankful for the invention of the internet and everything we can do with it. Without it small businesses would struggle getting their message across. I’m also thankful for the opportunities that have come my way from the start of my business. The ideas, the people, the growth, the ups, the downs; these things have inspired me to further my career as an entrepreneur!

15. Nnamdi G. Osuagwu: Strategic Generation, CEO

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I’m thankful to have been a part of the Fibroids Project. We launched this September with one mission — to make life better for women with fibroids and so far we are living up to that mission. We were recently invited to the 3rd NIH International Congress on Advances in Uterine Leiomyoma [Fibroids] Research, which happens every 5 years.

16. Kemi Robinson: Strategic 8, President

Atlanta, GA

I am truly thankful for the fact that I have air in my lungs and I have the opportunity to go out and pursue my dreams. I have the chance to live my life with purpose. I am thankful that I was given the opportunity to run with my passion and grasp my purpose — to build unity amongst business owners from various industries. Ultimately, to help individuals understand that with unity we can create more wealth than when we stand alone.

17. Bri Crum: PLAN B PR, President & Publicist

Dallas, TX

I am thankful for the love and support of my peers, colleagues, clients and industry…our collaborations are a powerful force.

18. Sasha B.: Di’ Vine Styling, Fashion Stylist & CEO

Union City, New Jersey

I am thankful for just having the ability to know God, and what He is capable of doing. Yes it is Thanksgiving, but I am thankful every day I wake for having good health and a sound mind. I am thankful everyday!

19. Nazira Sacasa: Shout Social, Founder & CEO

New York, NY

I am thankful for the unconditional love and support from my friends and family throughout the year. Since starting my business earlier this year, their support and encouragement has meant the world to me. Having an amazing support system has given me the courage to move forward with my goals.

20. Karie*: The Graphic Designer – Owner + Creative Director

Dallas, TX

I’m thankful for growth. I started out as a graphic designer, but now I design web sites, art direct photo shoots and help clients create their marketing plans. Pain is a part of growth, but the opportunities gained have been worth every bit of the struggle.
