#seedspot

 Pitch perfect. Working on my pitch deck for tomorrow. Final run tonight with my seedlings. #seedspot #venture #schoolsajoke #laughalittle  To pursue a dream requires tremendous courage because the road to success is rarely straight. Keep practicing, stay hungry, keep moving forward. #motivationmonday #seedspot  Our CEO Courtney Klein talking to US Small Business Administrator and member of President Obama's Cabinet Maria Contreras-Sweet at Venture Friday! #seedspot #venturefriday
 Do you know who is around you? Have you #talked to them yet? If not, what stops you? We discovered that people would rather look down at their #phones than their surroundings. Let us know if you feel the same way! You can take a picture of such instances and post it on one of your #socialmedia platforms, using the hashtag #feelfree. Once you are done, look around and start a #conversation. #yesphx #Seedspot #connected #collaborative #communities #creatives  What motivates you? For the CEO & Founder of MyBeeble Gabriel Cornejo, it's something special. "Because I was in a near-fatal car accident I decided I was not satisfied with how my life looked and how my reality was. I decided that every day I would move and take action to make my life look the way I wanted to. That's what motivates me, creating my reality. #seedspot #MotivationMonday  How do you face problems? Oscar, a constant source of inspiration for the office, says that "It's about recognizing that it's more than you, it's about the big picture. I recognize that just being born in America I'm in a unique position that millions will never know. I understand that being an American citizen is a privilege that's not bestowed on a lot of people." #seedspot #motivationmonday
