Saturday was GREAT!

I spoke at BOSS BRUNCH in Washington, D.C. and was on stage with Shawn Thomas- Ask a Millionaire! He dropped some major knowledge on everyone and it was wonderful. The entire speaking line up was excellent. And I will be collaborating with some of the people there. It was a great first talk for the year. I met so many cool people. I am considering being on the line up for Florida in April. I am thankful to Tarra Jackson for putting this together. She is busy and could have easily decided to spend her time elsewhere.

Groups of People to Tap

Think of the groups of people within your own web of friends, family, and acquaintances. Research says that about 30% of your funding will come from here. These are people who can help you reach out to others they know, expanding your potential for funds. Family and friends will donate if they can, but they can also help you spread the word through all of their social media channels and email lists too.
