Amanda Stillwagon – Editor
I started my career as an office manager for a 4 doctor veterinary practice. However, my love of candles combined with my entrepreneurial spirit led me to launch my own candle business, Kiski Valley Kandles. Starting this business introduced me to the online world where I now appear as the editor here at smbceo.com.
In my spare time I enjoy baking, shopping and gardening. I also author my own blog, myfindsonline.com, where I feature unique products and recipes that I come across in my online travels.
Paula M. – Contributor
Paula, an occasional contributor here, is a dedicated stay at home mother of two and an admitted internet junkie. Over the past few years, Paula has gained useful knowledge of the small business world by scouring the web and participating in social media. Most days you can find Paula surfing the net, absorbing blog posts, and contributing content here at smbceo.com. In the evenings, Paula enjoys cooking home made meals for her family and settling down with a good book.
Steve Rucinski – Editor Emeritus
Small Business CEO was founded by Steve Rucinski, a 30-year management veteran from Ohio, USA. Steve has worked in large businesses and small and also owned two different small businesses of his own.
Steve operated the blog from anywhere he could get an internet connection but most often from his home office. He pulled content ideas from his vast experience, his self-proclaimed career-long role of leadership and management and the ever growing network of global small business resources.
In late 2008 when this site was acquired by Anita Campbell of Small Business Trends LLC, Steve was “kicked upstairs” to the largely ceremonial role of Editor Emeritus with an open invitation to come back and blog again if he ever got the urge.
