Hope you all had a great weekend. For those of you that joined us last week in LA at our meet-up – Thanks for coming! It was great seeing you there.
📆 I’ll be hosting a webinar about how to build and invest in Beauty and Personal Care Brands on Tuesday (8/29) at 12pm PST.
📆 One of my good friends and frequent summit collaborator, Marc Nathan, is working on hosting another Superconnector event at SXSW. I went two years ago and really enjoyed it. If you can vote for the event, that would be awesome.
I’m also cooking up another event at Expo East, so stay tuned!
