Questions, Topics & Notes:

  • What happened at the CIA Summit?
  • What was the biggest realization?
  • How do I get rich?
  • well I just want to live comfortably
  • I can’t seem to break the 50k mark in salary :/
  • ~ Tim, Delray Beach, FL
  • I have been so busy working as an independent business owner, I have not done my taxes; any suggestions?
  • will it blend? – that is the question

Will it blend, was brought up because of an interesting article in the Salt Lake Tribune, and a post that landed in Jonathan’s RSS Reader. It’s a simple marketing campaign that is very effective.

Next Q&A will be on April 24th, and Greg will present the basics of copyright and then take questions. Listen to the Q&A4 titled “Video Copyright Producer” where we all have some similar background.

Submit questions when you think of them, then show up at 5:05EST and you can be reminded of your question and ask it live.
