You can follow along on Twitter or Facebook by using the hashtag #Launchout.

I’m so excited for them. Many will be speaking publicly for the first time about their dreams and what they are working on. Also, the group is just amazingly supportive and helpful, and some powerful connections will be made by spending time together in person.

So, this brings me to the questions I have asked before, and I always love to hear your responses to.

What are you working on? Where is your dream taking you? How can we celebrate with you?


Share in the comments below! I’d love to hear!
