Thank you so much for your supportive likes and comments cheering me on during the PowerMoves Miami business pitch competition! Every notification felt like a gentle and supportive pat on the back.
Since you were there with me, I want to share my business pitch update with you.
First and foremost, Miami Beach, FL and the famous Fountainbleu Hotel are simply beautiful. My mind was racing! "Let's get my business moving forward; I gotta increase my revenue because I AM coming back!"
The PowerMoves pitch competition was an empowering and motivational experience. I recieved a great honor; PowerMoves hand-picked me to share ideas, get information, network and learn the ropes for pitching my business to venture capitalists. I was schooled on financial metrics, the power of presentation and the entrepreneurial philosophy of layering your business foundation as best as YOU can; one layer at a time.
Unfortunately, I didn't win the business pitch contest. It's all good! Why? Simply stated, I am confident that I walked away with some SERIOUS TOOLS for future success!. For you see, I delivered a flawless and deeply passionate business pitch presentation; the audience laughed and cheered me on! Yes, I gave it all I got!
Even though I didn't win, I am so deeply grateful because I feel more empowered than ever before.
Thanks to PowerMoves, I have great key points for updating my pitch, new resource tools for evaluating and forecasting my business plans, and some super new friends; people I know you will be reading about in the near future.
By the way, I have a fun fact: the stage that I spoke on was the same stage that Whitney Houston belted out the song, I have nothing, in the film, Bodyguard.
