BUSINESS LEXINGTON MAGAZINE

Business Lexington, October 2016 issueBusiness Lexington, produced by Smiley Pete Publishing since May 2005, is filled with news of the business world in Lexington and Central Kentucky. Formerly a biweekly publication under the direction of editor Tom Martin, in June 2013 the magazine became a monthly, under editor Erik Carlson through 2014 and M. David Nichols in 2015.
 
I write a column called the Stamps Collection. In the beginning (June 2005), my articles were profiles of independent professionals and small-business owners. I still write those, along with roundups and other types of pieces about small businesses.
