WWWs from last time

Were all related to putting together the Earth Day booth

Music for the video

  • We have two Disney contacts who have to go through separate clearance processes
  • If we can't get clearance?
    • Commission and/or write our own song?
    • Find something else that fits

Earth Day followup

  • Brandon sent personalized welcome messages to everyone who signed up at Earth Day (14 total)
    • Tried to talk about something we knew they were interested in
    • 3 replies so far
  • We could invite the most enthusiastic people to the business calls
  • Brandon will see about inviting some people in Portland to have lunch or breakfast 1-on-1

Book club and finding Octavia Butler fans

Personal Outreach

  • Start with thinking of one person each to send email to
  • Email format
    • Personalize and establish relatedness by showing understanding of their interests
    • Introduce who we are, ask whether they have any advice for us, or know someone else we should contact
    • Thank them for taking the time to read our email and for any help they might give us
