 #Booktalk March 18th at 5.30pm at #seedspot #inspiring  Dear roller derby, today you are taking home a huge win for myself & @mariadllmontoya . Thank you for helping us develop confidence during a transitional period in our lives. Derby builds strong fucking women & it has absolutely nothing to do with skating sometimes. It was an honor & a pleasure to pitch biz ideas with you today Maria. We are badass, strong, awesome chicks #teamevollife #seedspot #dothatcoaching #rollerderby #azrd #rollerderbybusinessbitches  Some photos of today's all employee meeting as we prep for the start of the spring semester. A special thanks to our guest speaker Courtney Klein of @seedspot for her inspiring story on creating social impact! #pvccaz #seedspot
 #Snapdragon #Antirrhinum #Seedspot  Pitchin the biz...making dreams a reality #teamevollife #dontjustdreamdo #doshitthatmatters  I'm already nervous for my first day of school. Thank you Western School of Science and Technology for letting School's A Joke interrupt your regularly scheduled programming. #laughlearnperform #schoolsajoke #write #school #seedspot #teachforamerica #bhag
 #seedspot #venture#thegeniusfactory #thegenius# #thepassion#healthandwellness#science #sciencetutoring #tutoring #tutor #mcc #mesa #mcat #PCAT #DAT #medical #medicalschool #medicaldoctor#student#learning #Learningcenter  At #seedspot entrepreneur bootcamp talking about raising capital. I find that women entrepreneurs do two things differently than men: 1. Wait until it's perfect to launch or raise money when in fact they could have gone earlier 2. Not asking for more. Seeing their worth as being much more than they dare to ask. #seedspot  Feeling #thankful today to @seedspot for the opportunity to pitch my vision for our new soulful social network at last night's #demoday2014 - ready to do 100 more and spread the word that there is a purely positive space for people to go to inspire and be inspired. #gratitude #inspire #seedspot
 #seedspot#genius. #Working #away #at #seedspot #entrepreneur  I'm here for a talk to a group of women entrepreneurs on investing, raising capital. @seedspot #seedspot  Great Night photographing for @seedspot with Courtney Kline #demoday #seedspot #Entrepeneur #supporter #giveback #sociallyconscious #change #mentor

 The H.E.A.R.T. Center has set out on an exciting new journey with our curriculum. Week 1 with @seedspot full time venture program and this morning Oscar energized our day with this beauty: "Notes from Oscar" - 2/18/15 "when walking towards your dreams remember to stomp loudly on the pavement as a way of thanking those whose strong backs and unyielding will build a future strong enough to carry the weight of our dreams". #dreamBIG #love #recreationtherapy #specialeducation #seedspot #inspiration #theheartcenter #surroundedbygreatness  Day 2 and we are talking about our customers, prototyping, and creating the perfect 3 minute pitch. #gettingitdone #yesphx #seedspot #startuplife #entrepreneur  Great job to all of the #seedspot ventures who pitched tonight at #seedspotdemoday! You were all amazing! RENEW will be up on that stage next year!
 First day of class! So grateful for this amazing experience! #seedspot #teamjeremy #cancersucks #metal  So, my husband signed me up (without telling me) for a week long entrepreneur course for women at a local startup incubator, Seed Spot. So far, I've already met so many rad women inspired to create socially responsible businesses here in AZ. Can't wait to see what the week holds. Anyone wanna guess my business? #seedspot #startuplife #yesphx  Excited to be at @SeedSpot #DemoDay tonight ... Bring on the killer presentations.
 Second half of the day grind, let's go! #seedspot #yesphx #ElluminateWellness #BTFD  Meeting with young entrepreneurs of AZ. #seedspot #innovation #business #entrepreneur #riseaboveit  Demo Day is here! Rooting on @realsoulfulcom ! #seedspot
