My Weekend in Washington with Young Entrepreneurs: JJ Entry #28

My Weekend in Washington with Young Entrepreneurs: JJ Entry #28

by Nicholas Tart

The last five days has been one of the most eye-opening experiences of my life with some of the most ambitious young people I’ve ever met.

I’ve learned more about how to sell things (anything from ebooks to jigsaw puzzles) on the internet in the last five days than the rest of my life. There were tons of famous internet people and a few lucky young entrepreneurs won scholarships to this event (including yours truly).

It was a blast and you will see plenty of changes to my site over the coming months. Here are some of the pictures with people I met:
