As a small business owner myself, I’ve spent my entire career working to become a small business enthusiast/influencer and I’m truly humbled to be recognized by the small business community and the panel of judges as such.

CorpNet.com, a leading online business document filing company that helps entrepreneurs start a business and keep a business in corporate compliance, today announced its CEO, Nellie Akalp, has been honored as a Top 100 Champion in the 2013 Small Business Influencer Awards, for the second consecutive year.
The Small Business Influencer Awards are designed to recognize the unsung heroes of small businesses – those who support and encourage entrepreneurs and small business owners, and help them achieve success and stay successful. The Champions are chosen based on a combination of voting by the small business community and a panel of judges steeped in the small business market, who considered the contributions of the nominees over the past year.
A passionate entrepreneur, small business advocate, and mother of four children, Akalp was also named a 2012 Top 100 Small Business Influencer. She is a popular contributor for a variety of outlets including: Small Business Trends, Mashable, AMEX OPEN forum, Business Insider, and AllBusiness.com where she shares advice on starting and running a business, on topics such as where to incorporate, how to form an LLC, what to do after incorporating, and how to keep a company in good standing.
“It's such an honor to be named as a top 100 champion…amongst a list that includes such strong resources like American Express OPEN Forum, SCORE, and Elance,” said Akalp. “As a small business owner myself, I’ve spent my entire career working to become a small business enthusiast/influencer and I’m truly humbled to be recognized by the small business community and the panel of judges as such.”
