How has T-Shirt King, Inc. helped bring your t-shirt vision to life?

People love to get a Smallbizchat t-shirt. I give them out at speaking engagements and conferences. You can only get one personally from me so people really treat them like they are special. Many of my fans have taken pictures of themselves in the shirts and posted them on my Facebook fan page.
