Welcome back to the Vision Blog - 1st Video of 13 week series

My last post was 9/11 as I went into the trenches to do battle with the dragon of Financing Risk.

Young businesses fail more often due to financing risk than any other. I was determined not to let this distract Local Motors so I made a decision to adjust my focus and schedule in order to bring more power to bear on this issue. Hence the hiatus in the Vision Blog. Many of you have written me to ask when it would return, and I so appreciated your contact.

As of 2 days ago, I am pleased to announced that we have closed on a substantial multi-million $ round of financing from some of the most visionary and supportive investors worldwide.

Given the power of this fundraising and the interest, we have decided to continue to raise more $ while the "iron is hot" so we will detail the final close details when we are all done....nonetheless, the Vision Blog will return.

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, I am at PopTech 09 conference in Camden, ME. It is a great conference and marks a special day as it is coincident with the launch of the first of our first video in a 13 week series. Every Wednesday night at 10pm EST for the next 12 weeks we will debut a new video chronicling the story of local motors.

You can see these launches at our YouTube channel

Please enjoy the story and repost, retweet, email, and share with your friends. These are going to be 12 exciting weeks.

Great to have the blog back and congratulations on the financing, that is really great news as this world deserves (and needs) a car company such as Local Motors.

Semper Fi! Man is this motivating. I am a security contractor and I write about the security contracting industry in a blog called Feral Jundi. Your open source car company could very well be the inspiration for an open source private military company, and I plan on writing about the concept soon. There is much to learn from your venture. Either way, I will put up your video for my readership, and do a little promotion for the concept. I love it. -matt

This shows what impact does different negative and fake reviews of best paper writing service and how it can affect the business.
Reviews or testimonials regarding any service are the only way to get an idea about its quality and credibility. MyAssignmentHelp Review feedbacks from students all over the world. MyAssignmenthelp.com reviews show the dedication and efforts the company put to ensure 100% quality. Although most of the reviews are positive, but there are testimonials with negative feedback as well.
It is needless to say that if the students are convinced that edubirdie review is not a good, they will definitely not opt for it. Therefore, if the number of negative and fake reviews is increased on reputed sites like essay reviews, the sale can rapidly get down.
To counter this issue, the only way is to go through or read Argumentative Essay on Essay Writing Services that are posted on the site,
However, essayshark review and Uk essays review posted on the sites are very small.
