    Hi Geeks -- I have an amazing opportunity for 5 San Diego-based fast action-takers...I am a student of Loral Langmeier's, and she is doing her 3 Days to Cash seminar in San Diego 7/25-27. The cool and unique thing about this event is that EVERYONE who comes makes money right in the room (don't ask me how, it's a surprise...but it has to do with learning to sell what you do :-) I have 5 FREE tickets to this -- it retails for up to $2400 (this is for real, I paid $1500 for this last January). First 5 people to contact me and say you want in gets a free ticket, no strings attached.

    This is my first Geek Girl meetup, and I had a great time. I got a lot out of the workshops I attended, made lots of new connections, and found many new resources for learning and business. Also, it was really fun! It was inspiring to see so many women from different backgrounds and industries, and all different ages, coming together to share education and experience. I'm motivated to start learning new technology-related skills on my own now as well, and have gained some great new resources to achieve that. Thanks, Leslie- you're pretty awesome!
