Also, continuing in the tradition of connecting they will also begin to host more online "lives" showcasing ways to connect with others.

Deana says, "I love to cook and I love to be in the kitchen-except now gone are those sugar filled, high carb treats. I started taking my cookies to brunches and dinners and the response was overwhelming. I attended a fashion pop up shop and gave out samples-just to make sure it wasn't in my head that they were delicious. Again, the response was so uplifting that I decided at that moment, I would sell the cookies. The cookies then transformed into the cookie mix and here we are today. I've spent a lot of time to make this cookie just right and extremely simple for you to make at home. You add 1/4 cup of oil or melted butter and 1 egg. That's it!"

You will learn a lot about business and how starting off with the right community can make the biggest difference in your product launch.
