Founder and Editor Bena Roberts to leave GoMo News on March 1 2012

I started GoMo News five years ago from my kitchen table and after some time in Ireland in lavish offices or GoMo News Towers (as we called them) …. I end it here back on my kitchen table.

I have learnt so much these past five years and I wouldn’t change them one bit.  Even though it was awful, I wouldn’t even change the bit about having breast cancer, chemotherapy and radiation.  Having a start-up, living social media, fighting cancer, throwing amazing parties, meeting amazing people and travelling the world – has just made me stronger.

I am proud that I grew GoMo News from zero to a million readers.  That is an achievement and it was bloody hard work.
Last year I sold my half of GoMo News and in that contract, I was to work six months.  On March 1, these six months are over and it is time for me to move on.

So, the next two weeks will be my last.  I will meet and party with all of you at Mobile World Congress and I can’t wait to see all my friends, readers and supporters one last time.
Tony Dennis will become the new Editor and I will start looking for something new.  Not sure what, but I am sure I will find something!
