Congratulations to the Warby Parker/OPEN Forum Giveaway Winner!

Warby Parker Giveaway WinnerA few weeks ago I told you about the great new video series at American Express’s OPEN Forum, “Inside Successful Small Businesses” — I chose a few of my favorites from the series, and then we took a closer look at the lesson the founders of online eyeglass shop Warby Parker learned, to never underestimate the cost of goods.  We also announced a giveaway for Twitter/Facebook users — people who shared the title of their favorite video (with the hashtag #sharingadvice) were entered to win a free gift card good for one pair of eyeglasses at Warby Parker.  I’m happy to say that Random.org has chosen the winner (#4) — congratulations @AVoluckas!  Thank you to everyone who entered!
