press: thanks to gary vaynerchuk for a great mention!

Gary VaynerchukWe are thrilled to have a mention today from Gary Vaynerchuck in his LinkedIn article about 19 up and coming people to follow on Twitter:  http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20130415151527-10486099-19-people-you-should-be-following-on-twitter-but-aren-t-pt-1-of-2

I had the opportunity to meet Gary last week for one of the most fun and inspiring brainstorm sessions of my career.  He instantly “got” what we are building at popexpert and clearly saw our chess game a few years out.  As someone who has always carved out his own path to success, he understands the value of investing in learning and growth as much as anyone and appreciates our focus on engaging with highly talented experts that can create real value through live one-to-one sessions.

I was thrilled to make the fifth spot with excerpt here from his post here:

Ingrid Sanders (@ingridsan) is somebody that I just met. She’s the founder and CEO of an interesting site, and more importantly just really blew me away. I meet with a lot of young entrepreneurs and start-ups constantly, and I would say that out of the last 400, Ingrid really stood out in the top one or two. I think she’d got her head on straight, I think she’s got a bright future, and I think that she’s a worthwhile follow as being a big prospect for having a successful startup.

When building a business, there is nothing as important as surrounding yourself with talented people and listening to their feedback.  I feel grateful and humbled by the support we have received so far and look forward to sharing more exciting news in the coming weeks.
