For the Health chapter, I would recommend Alicia Staley - @stales on Twitter. She is three-time cancer survivor who has established herself as a leader in health activism for cancer survivors and all patients. She survived Hodgkin's Disease 20+ years ago, a pioneer well before the Internet was available for searching for treatments or finding other survivors. She was on some of the earliest Listserv groups for cancer survivors and is a sought-out speaker at health and pharma conferences. She is the founder of The Staley Foundation and owns www.AwesomeCancerSurvivor. Alicia lives in Boston and is one of the most upbeat, passionate and positive people you'll ever meet.

This post really hit home Gini! I had a business that closed in 2009, partly because of things over which I had no control, like the economy, and partly because of some bad business decisions. We did a lot of things right, but I learned the hard way that employees will never see things from the owner's point of view; it's not their money, and they will never be as invested in the company's success as the investor/owner.
I admire your tenacity and your ability to keep things moving forward in such trying times. Here's hoping that 2011 is prosperous for you and for your company!
