So inspired and motivated by all of the makers, Martha, and the incredible panels she put together for The American Made Summit, in New York. HapPy gO SmiLe was invited to this small (about 300 entrepreneurs) intimate business summit. To be surrounded by so many like minded, passionate people created an amazing energy in the room!
The day started with Martha sharing her story, interviewed by Dave Isay, president & founder of StoryCorps. What a hard working dedicated women. "No dream is to small or to big", she said. It takes lots of hard work, trust, passion, and perseverance to make it happen! Learn from your mistakes and move on. She learned a lot from her grandparents.
"Someone wants to hear your story." To finance your dreams you must share your story.The first panel of guests shared their words of wisdom with us about Angel Investing, Kickstarter, and how to finance your idea.
As a small business I'm grateful for all the free avenues to communicate with my customers. I'm also grateful that my customers engage in social media with me.
