    I have multiple projects outlined that I would like advice and assistance on getting started with. I believe some of my projects I will help mankind's "creative entity" expand much more quickly. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I am brand new at all of this. I think I know all of the fundamentals of launching an idea to product, but only in theory. I need first-hand steps. I need to network with people who have been there and back
