And so it begins…

I decreed that “5 Bucks is Change” would officially launch at Ignite Raleigh 2 last night … and so it did. My presentation was scheduled for later in the evening so I had to psyche myself up a bit before walking on stage. Many thanks to Emcee Zach Ward who gave me a hug before going on and a $5.00 donation as I left the stage!  Presenting in front of 400-500 was nerve wracking and remembering to slow down was my biggest hurdle. The audience responded well and I received some excellent comments live and via Twitter after speaking.  With all the effort that creating this presentation took I am planning to hit the road with it for the next month or so. I hope to present at Pecha Kacha at the end of the month and maybe hit the Rotary Club lunch circuit.

    Thank you so much for your presentation last night, Janet! I was so happy to see a spot on charitable giving and you featured my favorite book – I was ecstatic! I love “Give a Little” and it’s inspired me to do other charitable activities with my family. I work at the Food Bank (on twitter @FoodBankCENC) but also run a separate twitter about other charities… @CharityJen. Lots of inspiration all around and I loved your advice. Thanks for showing that you don’t ahve to be rich to make a difference. Your presentation was fantastic. Thanks again!

    Thank you. I am new to SEO & site ranking so maybe I will get better at it.

  5. Janet,

    Great presentation and fantastic idea. Let’s work on getting your SEO ranking higher now that the site is up and the launch is complete!
