Entrepreneur magazine has a new column called “Doing Good,” featuring entrepreneurs whose business models are based on giving back to their communities as well as the world.
It’s written by JJ Ramberg who, with her brother, runs GoodSearch, a successful search engine company that donates money to nonprofits and charities of your choosing, whenever you do a search using their search engine. I wrote about it here. JJ blogs here, and one way to get her attention it read her blog, and post comments. (See “How to Pitch the Best Bloggers & Create a Publicity Explosion.”)
JJ is also the host of the MSNBC program “Your Business” which focuses on the world of small business owners, featuring profiles, news, advice and tips. So you can pitch an idea for that show by emailing her.
I learned about her new Entrepreneur column by reading the editor’s column written by Rieva Lesonsky. As I’ve said before, the editor’s column in most magazines will tip you off to important changes in the publication, and if you read it regularly, you’ll be miles ahead of other people who are pitching blindly.
