Today is another great Saturday and I’ll be featuring another cool entrepreneur, before I give you more details about who this entrepreneur is I’d like to let you know that I’ve been getting feedback and suggestions from readers (such as making this a form of a mini-interview etc.), I am not neglecting your comments and I will be implementing them soon.
Also, I’m thinking of creating a guidelines for featuring entrepreneurs so that it will be easy for people to know if they’re qualified to be featured or not, what do you think should be part of my criteria for featuring entrepreneurs? I’ll like to know what you think.
The person I’ll be featuring today is Hector Avellaneda from Internet Entrepreneur Connection. If you see a truly serious and professional entrepreneur from the on-set it’s not difficult to recognize them, I recently discovered Hector Avellaneda when he made a comment on my recent interview with Lisa Barone, his comment was long and thought-provoking (you can also see that in action on my great quotes post), due to the quality of his comment I was provoked to visit his blog and I decided to feature him today.
It isn’t actually his comment alone that made me feature him (even though it is instrumental), the most important factor that made me feature him was his content. Hector’s content is great and highly informative and I can assure you that if he continues this way he will be an A-list blogger soon.
Who is Hector Avellaneda?
Hector Avellaneda is someone who grew up from a poor background with a great desire and determination to make sure he amounts to something in life, after serious efforts and hardwork he was able to work for two fortune 500 companies at the age of 18 (Reliant Energy and NASA), he was also able to get more traction due to his achievements at such tender age which lead to him being featured in The Houston Chronicle (A very popular newspaper in Houston) and also being invited to represent the technology operation he worked for in a meeting at the White House.
After graduating from college and some serious efforts and frustrations Hector was able to get a job which made him happy at first because it eased the payments of the debts he was owing, but as things went on the company he worked for had to lay some people off in order to have a competitive advantage and in order not to be laid off Hector began to work even harder – as many of you would guess, he started finding the journey frustrating and decided to start his journey as an online entrepreneur – which lead to the birth of his blog.

Why You Should Read Hector’s Blog
I rarely fall in love with blogs at first sight but Hector’s blog is one of the blogs that was able to gain my attention almost immediately. His content is top-notch and I can assure you will learn a lot from him.
Want to Get Featured?
I have been enjoying this entrepreneur spotlight feature since I started it, because I love to get the spotlight on some entrepreneurs, and I don’t plan stopping it. The entrepreneurs featured gain a lot ranging from my recommendation, a quality backlink from this blog and even more traffic since I have linked to the spotlight category on the navigation bar. I am also working on promoting the spotlight category which means those featured will be gaining more traffic with time.
The only way for you to get featured is if I know you and that can only happen in two ways, either you contact me or I discover you and one great way I can discover you is by you commenting on this blog (like Hector did). Note that commenting on this blog is not a requirement and can’t even assure you being featured because I rarely visit commenters blog except high quality commenters (like Hector), so the best way to get featured is by contacting me.
PS: Get the word out about these cool entrepreneurs, let others know about them by promoting the entrepreneur spotlight category (bookmark it, write about it etc.) and by sharing the feature posts.
