Weekly review: Week ending December 7, 2012

I sprained my ankle in fitness class, but I’m almost back to normal. It’s been quite an eventful week! I’m getting closer to the uncertain parts of my business adventure, which is good because that’s what makes an experiment an experiment. This December, I want to build the foundation for good marketing and sales. There’s so much to learn. =)

Sketchnoting Lean Startup Day was a blast – and it got me past one of my first milestones in this line of business. Onward and upward!
