The Digital Snapshot


Every fresh start deserves a second chance.  Sometimes, it takes a couple of starts to get it right. Our Small Business Editor, Carolyn Brown wants you to get it right.

Carolyn created an exclusive #BE30DAYChallenge that will help you launch and successfully fund any crowdfunding campaign.  Did you know you only need 3 people to give your campaign the winning edge?

These 3 people could make the difference between getting fully funded or not.  And no, those 3 people shouldn’t be your Aunt Thelma with her $20.  Think more your Aunt Louise with $2000.

While you’re taking our step-by-step weekly challenge, check out a success story that will have you wondering why you didn’t come up with this idea.  Divine, founder of the BLAK Card takes us behind the scenes of how he went from the streets to the boardroom with friends like Ben Horowitz and so much more.

Yup, we’re starting you off with chunky bites to help you focus.  Get started now on finding the #BE30DayChallenge that is right for you.  Next month, we kick it up a notch with profiles, reviews, and our new #AskBE video series on FB Live.  Send me your thoughts, the good, the bad and the ugly @RealAlphanista.
