Dec. 14, 2017 – Top 15 Things every Southern Oregon Entrepreneur Needs to Know to Launch and Thrive : SOREDI Launch Talk

I have been asked to give a 45 minute talk by SOREDI at Climate City Brewing in Grants Pass. I’m very excited about it because I get to follow on the heels of Trever Yarrish who spoke there last month. Grants Pass is a key part of Southern Oregon’s EcoSystem and the community is revitalizing itself in amazing ways. Any Entrepreneur from Southern Oregon will love my inspirational, funny talk. SOREDI does charge $15 if you are a non-member, but you will walk away with 15 things that will change your life. Such a Deal. I might even throw in 1 or 2 more.
