  • I am extremely excited & honored to be affiliated with a member of the StartUpBusMiami! WOW! What an incredible trip you guys are having already and you haven't even laid any rubber yet..........vvrroooooomm......
    Can't WAIT to see the end results. This is a very cool thing and I truly find it totally improbably {not impossible, you see} that it's conception was only last year. I love the world we live in!
    ~Travel well friends. Cheryl

  • Need better clip art and placement. What I would prefer is Dollar Bills instead of these icons I think. Thoughts? Formatting issues - Bullet Points - on "Angel Investor" level. Add or not? "When it is time to do something huge, call in the VC’s.  Nothing else will come close to making the impossible happen like a well-funded VC." Angel Investor: "When the ideas are hot, it is time to call in the scouts. They know what they're looking for. "
  • Bootstrappers are the unsung heroes of the StartUp culture. We love bootstrappers. What I would prefer is Dollar Bills instead of these icons I think. Thoughts?
  • Social Network Icons. Need the same buttons that will be selected for website here on bottom. All Buspreneurs listed here in alphabetical order unless specified. I don't think there is a way to link the icons to the account pages?? Ick.
