    Howard was great. Love his energy and clarity on what it takes to be an entrepreneur and the trade offs. After hearing him - its obvious that its not coincidence why he has been so successful as a serial entrepreneur.

    Terrific event! Howard is an excellent speaker and the knowledge he brings is unique. Not many speakers are able to discuss the experience of doing so many successful deals.
