Thank You.

Danielle, This was the best video I have seen on the start up. I have been looking into starting a business for the last year and I am alot closer to my goals because of the info in your video. Please dont take that ligthly because its the truth.I have been helping friends and people I met promote themselves though promotion parties and small events like Art Shows and I though I was doing good until I started to think about the money and WHY.. I didnt make any. These events were an instant success because I was just trying to help. I want to specailise in promotions and get paid for it. The feeling I got after watching your video was I can do it and I can get more help. Thank You, again. And I wont be working for someone else I will be helping people promote themselves and gain the edge they need to do business well. Kevin Fountain 1-347-553-5402
