    I attended the event today and have to say that it was one of the best Uncensored Events I had been to. Now I’m just wondering if the video that was being recorded will be available to view online anytime soon?

    At the beginning of last night’s Startups Uncensored, Jason announced some sort of “meet with the bloggers” event. It sound like it was called “Magento” (or something like that). Does anyone know what that was about or what it is called exactly? I remember being interested and wanting to go to it….

  13. Rupy says:

    I would definitely have made it out last night if I had seen the post sooner. Hopefully I’ll catch it the next time around. Please do continue keeping us apprised of these type of events via LinkedIn or Facebook.

  16. Networking Tips for Entrepreneurs says:

    [...] • Do Favors for Others: the law of reciprocity dictates that people want to help other who help them. Most folks at meet-ups spend most of their time talking about themselves or seeing what they can get out of the situation. By being the person that focuses on helping others you’ll instantly stand out among the crowd and will build a bank account full of goodwill that you’ll be able to repeatedly withdraw from in the future.  For more on this watch my video on How to Persuade People [...]
