Pre-Launch Diary :: 09.10.2010
By RealEstateAndWomen on September 10, 2010
It’s time for entry #2 in our hot-off-the-press blog series: The RAW: Real Estate And Women Pre-Launch Diary.
For those of you who are new to the RAW party, welcome aboard! Every Friday, we share a week’s worth of tricks, tools, insights and inspiration. It’s a behind-the-scenes glimpse into our pre-launch process.
We want to show our readers what it really takes to launch a start-up company … and make a few friends along the way!
Without further ado, here’s our second diary entry:
:: Inspiration Station
This week, we got wrapped up in Michelle Ward’s post, “Living in the Questions.” Michelle is a creative career coach who helps people answer the age-old question: “what do you wanna be when you grow up?” Her intuitive perspectives on career development are pure gold for budding entrepreneurs.
:: Green Dream
We’re excited about recent developments in the field of home electronics — researchers at a university in Tel Aviv have developed a flatscreen TV that uses environmentally-friendly light-emitting diodes (LED) to generate clean, green light. Clunky electronics account for 70% of landfill bulk, so green TVs are a welcome advancement!
:: RAW Shout-out
Congratulations to Alexandra Franzen, our RAW copywriter, on her one-year blogoversary. To celebrate, she’s giving away 15 free copies of her digital product, The Personal Branding + Vocation Pumping Toolbox. Scurry on over to her blog and snag yourself a copy!
:: RAW APPetite
Our app-of-the-week is the Dictionary of Real Estate Terms from Apple. It’s $4.99 USD from the iTunes Store, and worth every penny. If you’re new to the business — or just want to refresh your lexicon to impress a new client — this is a must-have tool.
:: Just for Kicks
Whether you’re a professional presenter (or completely terrified of public speaking), everyone can benefit from basic speech-delivery techniques. “How To Give A Great Speech” from Forbes is a clear, practical guide to public speaking. Dust off that podium, and grab the nearest microphone!
:: Countdown to RAW
Until next week…
