You're Invited: SMBMSP #42 - Entrepreneurship

It's been a while since I've had social media with a side of bacon, but this upcoming Social Media Breakfast MSP on the topic of entrepreneurship should be stimulating and delectable. Featuring several dreamers and doers from across the Twin Cities with their individual entrepreneurial tales, it'll be both an opportunity to learn as well as be inspired to take your own endeavors to the next level!

You are invited to attend:

You can do it. There's never been a better time to create a life and work that is meaningful and fulfilling. But it's going to take some hard work and you'll need the help of your friends and your social network.
