Well my friends, with a great deal of thought and prayer going into this, we have made the decision to end the Business Tech Weekly podcast after 109 episodes. This show was started on September 8th, 2009. During this final episode, Andy and I share how we met and what led to the creation of this show.

We also shared how Andy and I have benefited tremendously from knowing each other. As you will hear in the show, Andy and I will be working on some projects together in the future. It’s just that both of us lost all passion for discussion technology tools for small to medium sized businesses about forty or so episodes ago.

If you want to fully understand the reason behind the decision to end this, and several gspn.tv shows, I hope that you will consider listening to episode 243 of Podcast Answer Man. You can find that episode at http://PodcastAnswerMan.com/243.

If you would like to continue to follow my ongoing business growth journey, I encourage you to check out both my Pursuing A Balanced Life podcast at http://PursuingABalancedLife.com and my Podcast Answer Man podcast at http://PodcastAnswerMan.com.

If you would like to continue to follow Andy’s ongoing business growth journey, I encourage you to follow him on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/AndyTraub, on his blog at http://AndyTraub.com, and on his podcast network at http://TakePermission.com.

There is no question that this final episode was AMAZINGLY GREAT! I personally feel that this is because we both knew that this was the right decision for each of us personally and overall, it was the right decision for the future health of the content and community of gspn.tv.

We hope you enjoy this final episode. It really is hard to say goodbye to yesterday!

In this week’s episode of Business Tech Weekly, I’m flying solo as Andy is on a business trip in Nashville. It will become immediately evident why Audible may never be a good fit as a sponsor for gspn.tv.

I share the various reasons why I much prefer buying and reading a book on my Kindle as opposed to listening to a book read to me in audio form.
