Benefits Of Networking |Chapter 3:My Company, Log 2|Colluide

Topic: Networking/events/competitions part 1

My next intent while building my website was to develop as much publicity and networks for Colluide as possible. Aspiring entrepreneurs need to be social and charismatic in order to engage people to spread the word about their potential business. With my position as a Graduate Research Assistant and a student in college, I had plenty of resources at my disposal to meet people. To take that exposure even further, Atlanta is becoming the new go-to place for startups. I had full expectation to capitalize on the startup resources and events occurring throughout Atlanta.


Another way for me for make proactive moves was to further cement the foundations for Colluide. I felt that Colluide was now fully transitioned from a concept to more of an actual product in progress. Now was an ideal time to tie up the loose ends in building a business such business name registration etc. From now on, I would focus on building an identity for Colluide as a business, by gaining better online and social presence.

The first step was to be aware of all the opportunities available at school and in the city. Interestingly enough, I had my first encounter with a hustling entrepreneur that was promoting her event business to every building on campus. She was very open to meeting people and was very warm to a want-a-be entrepreneur like myself. The biggest impact she had on my journey was by enlightening me on the vibrant startup groups and event in Atlanta. Since then, we connected on social networks and I signed up to volunteer for her events as well. I learned so much from her hustle; seeing her in action gave me even more motivation.



“Never be afraid to ask for ask for a helping hand or to reach out and offer one ”



It was then I was introduced to startup incubators throughout Atlanta; to name a few are: the Hypepotamus, Atlanta Tech Startup and Flashpoint. Another related startup factor on the agenda is to participate in competitions and hackathons.

For now, I could focus on building contacts and maybe a potential partner or investor. Going to networking events provides exposure to meet an entire new world of people. In hindsight, I have met and networked with aspiring and successful millionaire entrepreneurs alike. The last thing that is good about events is the opportunity it provides to try to help others. It may seem as if you have nothing to offer, but there are always people that have not reached as far as you yet. Always be willing to reach out and help people with no ulterior motives.

I discovered your Chronicles Of A Local ATL Startup [Chapter 3:My Company, Log 2] | Colluide page and noticed you could have a lot more traffic. I have found that the key to running a popular website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get targeted traffic from and they let you try their service for free for 7 days. I managed to get over 300 targeted visitors to day to my website. Visit them here:

I also require a DVR box. Again, something pretty basic in 2012. BOOM! $119.97 per month with a charge of $19.99 for the installation. But hold on a minute, back there it said it would be $30 each for the TV and the internet. It did didn’t it. It then told you.

The reason is because the single player is arguably worse than that of the Battlefield games 3 and 4, which I know, you would’ve thought to be impossible. While yes, the AI director still has police officers walking over parked cars and FBI agents spawning in clear as day spawn closets, the friendly AI is abom.

If you have a few million cars that you have to keep track of, this may be a good way to code it. (A database would be an even better way.) But I suspect that Rick doesn’t need that. I suspect that he only wants to keep track of maybe a hundred or so and to do that, ListView is again a better way to goI didn’t want to disappoint Rick by not inclu.

For many, it was great to see someone stepping up, but the Lehigh Valley Pitbull Awareness Club isn’t a dog rescue .
