Pre-Launch Diary :: 09.10.2010

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

Yippee! The official launch of is getting closer + closer every minute. Jump on our mailing list, and come along for the pre-launch ride!

Until next week…
