Thank you to everyone who attended last night’s Liz Strauss event at Beverly Hills Porsche. I heard the 405 was a nightmare (again), and traffic from other parts of the city were tough. I tried to dodge the Dodger game traffic and had no such luck, so I get it. So glad you made it!

Liz Strauss – SMCLA August 2012 at Beverly Hills Porsche

Liz, thank you for your time and for traveling up to LA to headline our event.

We are a nonprofit and our Board is 1000000% volunteer-run. We do this as a passion and as a way to give back and share our expertise and network with anyone who is interested in social media and business. We keep our ticket prices low so that everyone can afford to attend our SMCLA events. To help with ticket prices, we look for sponsors who generously offer their spaces, food and beverages, a/v, community and reach, and/or all of the above.

Beverly Hills Porsche – Which one do you want? – SMCLA August 2012

Thank you to our venue sponsor, Beverly Hills Porsche! It was a terrific, central location for most folks and easy to find. Looking at Porsches wasn’t so bad either.

Thank you to Juice on the Loose LA for treating us to cold-pressed raw juices. I’m happy to see a mobile truck offering a healthy alternative to my usual diet of grilled cheese, burgers, pulled pork sammies, mac n cheese balls, and shave ice. (My body thanks you too.)
