Letter from the Editor May/ June

Happy Anniversary from the team at ScubaBiz.Help! Wow, has it really been a year since we launched?


A year ago, in February, I retired from working full-time in the scuba industry. By March, I knew I still had much to offer and needed an outlet for business knowledge and experience. My wife, Kelly, always the wise one, suggested that I enjoyed editing a magazine and writing articles and really enjoyed working with Jean-Marc, Karen and Tommie. She said why not help others in the scuba business? Within an hour, we had our web domain, our name and our mission in 12 letters and a period. Yes, that is correct, ScubaBiz.Help.


Next, I phoned Jean-Marc and Karen and Tommie to pitch the idea that we could use our combined knowledge to help businesses and instructors in scuba with a worldwide focus. In less than half a day ScubaBiz.Help was born!


After only one year, we have so much to be thankful for:


  • Karen, Jean-Marc and I have enjoyed developing content.
  • We were able to share a series by Gene from the Dive Industry Association and look forward to his next series.
  • We have added Ryan as one of our regular writers.
  • Our guest writers have had lots to share.
  • Assisted dive professionals with building their businesses.
  • Becoming an ambassador.
  • Developed lots of content for others through videos, workshops, advertisements, articles, and so much more.


We went from three of us, Jean-Marc, Karen, and I talking and sharing to what will soon hit 20,000 plus people reading, talking and sharing!


I am truly humbled by the growth of our mission to help the scuba business through ScubaBiz.Help.


As we say, our mission is in our name: ScubaBiz.Help.
