Show Summary:

The benefits of networking! Networking opens the door to assisting 3DPHC in reaching their goals. Not only do they meet professionals who are in similar shoes, but also in meeting people with valuable skills to help them in their day to day life. Through attending the Rainforest, they were able to meet their crowdfunding goal, they’ve been introduced to other investors and made valuable connections with the right people! Plus, in attending, they’ve met another Rainforester (Micah Luison - Home in a Bag) which has helped them shift their original plan for 3DPHC into a different direction together: helping people in disaster relief.

Show Quote:

"Attending our first Rainforest meeting was THE best decision we’ve ever made for our business and Life in general has not been the same since, it’s been far better!"

"If you think you’ve got something worthwhile, DO it! Get Started, join a group! You may find someone who’s started a business in a similar industry where what they’ve learned can help you and you can walk the path together sharing some synergies."
