Please join me in saluting Martin Diano. Here is a baby boomer who had a vision to connect fellow baby boomers around the world and to give us a platform to showcase what we do.
For those of you who don't know, Martin has just announced his retirement and turned over the helm of this awesome networking site to Doug Fitzgerald.
Martin was always busy wheeling and dealing behind the scenes to put us in the forefront. His partnerships with a number of key resources opened doors that may have, otherwise, been closed to us. He fought tirelessly to give us a voice on the internet.
I became acquainted with Martin through a third party. It took awhile but I began to appreciate his vision and his genuine interest in serving ALL boomers. With the creation of Boomer Authority, Martin gave us all a voice to demonstrate our expertise. Sadly, however, many of those voices were never heard and, from my point of view, there was not much bonding---but more self-serving attitudes.
In 2010, my organization Boomer Diva Nation, honored Martin as one of our Top Boomer Men----but based on all that Martin has done for this Group, he is a Top Boomer Men for the Century!
Thank you Martin for all you have done for Boomer Authority!
