  1. Wow. That small business influencer gala is the perfect place to find new connections and learn. I would have gone there if it was near here. I envy those who’ll make it and I hope that you’ll share what you’ll learn with everyone.

  2. The ‘start you own business bootcamp’ looks like a winner in this economy. Lots of great programs on that list.
