Pitch Party

W. Brett Wilsons' Pitch Party in Saskatoon was a first class event!  The night was hosted by the W. Brett Wilson Centre for Entrepreneurial Excellence.  It was a very interactive night where students were encouraged to network with other students and business professionals.  It was nice to be there and answer questions, offer help and be approached to come and speak to students in a classroom setting.  Being on Dragons' Den has opened doors not only to do business but to speak and motivate others to follow their dreams!

Two of my favorite ladies hard at work.  Karen, my sales rep, who flew in from Calgary for the event and my awesome Mom who came in from Davidson to support me like she always does. I have dragged her to many and adventure!
We were right beside the Lemonade Stand.  The Lemonade Day is a program which encourages youth entrepreneurship. 
A fantastic centerpiece by Fire and Ice Creations of Saskatoon. 
The lovely ladies of Breast Friends Cookbooks from Foam Lake SK. 

The Snappy Socks Booth all finished.

Brett talking with the crowd.  He is such a warm and natural speaker. Lots of knowledge and laughs to share. 
Karen and I are so lucky to be partners with Brett.  More than an investor he is a mentor.  In the past year he has shared so much with us we are truly grateful!
