In 2011, Shashi Bellamkonda launched a site called huggableman.com to honor people “who are different and want to make a difference for others.” In March 2012, Shashi brought on Cathy Larkin as editor and they re-branded the site huggablepeople.com. We will be expanding to feature men AND women, well-known AND less-well known people, companies (big and small), non-profits as well as technology and business folks.Continue Reading
I am starting this site to honor people who are different and want to make difference to others. All of us meet such people who instruct, inspire and initiate us into a new way if life. on a regular basis I want to feature such “huggable people” who have a vastly different mission than just doing a job. As a inaugural post I am featuring Ramon Ray editor of SmallBizTechnology.com who came into my life many years ago because of a bug on his site that I found and contacted him.
If you have not met Ramon Ray and heard him speak, think of the experience this way. Till you meet him think of yourself as a weary passenger in a railway station waiting for a train’s arrival that is several hours away. Then in comes a superfast express train Ramon Ray who takes you to your destination not only sooner but more efficiently. Hope you will experience the Ramon Ray effect soon and the best way to do that is to look for opportunities to hear him speak and his website definitely has all the info.
Want to nominate someone – send me an email with a 400×400 picture and about 250 words on why this person is “huggable”. I reserve the right to publish or reject the nominations. As the site develops. we will have the ability for you to have a conversation with the person, about the person, vote for them . Please comment here to give me feedback and suggestions or email awesome [at] huggableman dot com.
