    I really enjoyed the conversation and getting to know some of the attendees. My takeaway was to be comfortable being myself and enjoy knowing that the company I work with likes me for who I am. I was thinking there would be more direct information on crafting content specifically for my personal brand.

    I'm giving free early access to the group for a new web app that automates personal and business branding through your social media networks. I'm sure this app is something many of us have been wishing for. Learn more here: http://Lowdly.com

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
