Blog of the year 2015!
Every year the grooming industry awards Barkleigh Honors Awards to people who are "outstanding" in their niche.
This year I was fortunate enough to win Blogger of the year.
It is a huge honor, akin to an Oscar, and means so much to me that YOU GUYS, my blog readers, felt strongly enough that I help you and make a difference in your grooming that you voted for me.
I do this because it makes me feel like I am giving back to an industry that has given me so much. I do videos. Write articles. Take Photos. Lots of work and time invested and all because I LOVE teaching.
It is incredibly gratifying amongst all the nay sayers and haters out there to know that many of you appreciate what my team and I do to make this blog happen.
I want to wish congratulations on all the other winners as well.
