    I thought Johanna was great as always. What was the $10 for? If W is giving the space and you have a sponsor then I think you should at least offer a bowl of pretzels or one free drink.

    a lot of information .. would have liked it to be a bit more interactive ..
    For example:
    Did you know .. and then present info or initiative
    . .or How many of you .. .
    More young job seekers and students attending that my experience in the past when I have met more high level business owners/CEOs

    Johanna's presentation was exceptionally informative, inspiring, encouraging, and down-to-earth. I also thought the circle went surprisingly quickly, given 50-60 people attending -- that's a good thing.
