The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
What a silly goofy week.

I swear this week has been full of juxtapositions. It's been long but yet so short, hehe haha but also having to wear your serious face 🧐, relaxing but somehow the stress finds its way through.

Here's to a weekend of the former and avoiding the latter. 

Highlights of the week include: perfecting your elevator pitch, a new podcast episode, pitching your ideas for $$, hacking and crafting, and guides to designing and branding.
