Image/photo: I was sure they said Jamie Birch, but alas, Scott won the award. It was well deserved and now it seems that I may have slipped into the "Susan Lucci" role of Pinnacle Award nominees. Two nominations and two, well, nominations. I searched forever for that video as I promised many I would try to tie in Susan Lucci not winning into this blog post.

And The Winner Is… Pinnacle Awards – Affiliate Summit West

Posted January 22, 2009 in ,

I was so excited when I learned of my nomination in the Best Blogger category.  I couldn’t wait to get to the summit and see if I could pull off a win.  I had stiff competition.  Scott Jangro has really put together an awesome blog for our industry and Angel has always been a leader in this area, so I wasn’t too confident, but honored to be amongst this group.

And the moment came:

I was sure they said Jamie Birch, but alas, Scott won the award.  It was well deserved and now it seems that I may have slipped into the “Susan Lucci” role of Pinnacle Award nominees.  Two nominations and two, well, nominations.  I searched forever for that video as I promised many I would try to tie in Susan Lucci not winning into this blog post.

The even was great and the winners truly deserved the awards.  It was a truly amazing list of individuals and everyone really should be proud just to be nominated.  My hat’s off to you Mr. Jangro, but watch out for me next year :).

Here is a list of all the winner:

Congratulations guys!  You all do an amazing job and I am proud to consider many of you close friends.  Keep up the good work!

Shawn/Missy – you should bring back the formal awards ceremony like the first year!  I loved that one.
