NEW YORK, NY - The New York Enterprise Report recently presented leading small business expert, Jim Blasingame, with its 2009 Advocate of the Year award.  This is an annual award presented for outstanding leadership and contribution to small businesses.

The New York Enterprise Report, in print, online (www.nyreport.com) and at its events, features "how-to" articles written by experts for small and midsize businesses in the tri-state area. The Report is the only media in the New York area exclusively for the leaders of growing small businesses.

"As one of the important thought-leaders for the small business community, Jim Blasingame is very deserving of this award," said Robert Levin, founder and Publisher of The New York Enterprise Report.  "Year after year he continues to create original 21st century perspectives and deliver valuable resources that help small businesses seek excellence and find success."

"For many years I've admired the leadership of Rob Levin and the excellent work of his team at the New York Enterprise Report," said Blasingame. "So it's truly an honor to be recognized by them with this award."

In addition to his nationally syndicated weekday radio show, which is also simulcast worldwide on the Internet, Blasingame is a keynote speaker, syndicated newspaper columnist, blogger, author of two books and founder of SmallBusinessAdvocate.com, AskJim.biz, and Jimsblog.biz.
