Earlier today I had the wonderful and valuable opportunity to be a presenter at the 1 Million Cups event in San Antonio, Texas:
If you aren’t familiar with it, 1 Million Cups (1MC) is a program established by the Kauffman Foundation to build communities by creating a weekly event and forum for entrepreneurs to give a short pitch about their business and get constructive feedback & connections from others in the community. The main website is here. 1MC is like a friendly and local Shark Tank session. It’s always on Wednesdays at 9AM and lasts an hour. Check out the Kauffman site to see if you have one in your city.
After spending about 6 minutes explaining my book, website, results so far, and issues or challenges I’m facing, it was an open discussion.
I got questions and had some great suggestions about my messaging, how to connect with more readers or a target audience, some additional sales venues, and the website.
As I make changes here I will write about them on the blog. That’s one value and best practice of a blog: write about what you learn, write about what you do, and write about what happens. The same practice applies if you have a podcast or video channel.
Thanks to Omar, Karla, Ryan, Peter, and everyone at Cafe Commerce who organize and host this event!
Stay tuned for more updates and improvements to help you learn how to be a rocket scientist! But don’t expect me to do everything for you…it will take determination and hard work on your part. The bigger point is, we need more rocket scientists! And you can find a way to combine your passions and strengths to create a successful career. There are more opportunities and paths than ever before, despite what other may think or say.
Here’s one new update from my presentation and feedback today. I’ve reduced the price of the paperback! It’s now $7.99 – a 20% discount from the original price! The eBook remains $2.99. Click here to go to the Amazon page and pick the version you want.
Thanks for reading and for continuing on the journey with me to build a strong and prosperous future in aerospace!
