I have been invited to speak at Harvard's 41st Annual H. Naylor Fitzhugh Conference: "This year’s theme is New Ideas for New Success – Exploring Innovation as a Means to Impact." Check it out at: http://www.aasuconference.com/

According to conference organizers, "This..conference will focus mostly on innovation and the African-American entrepreneur.."

I am speaking on Sunday, April 7th at a Breakout Panel titled "Where are the resources for African American Entrepreneurs?" I'll be talking about my book on...Crowdfunding. (See: The JOBS Act: Crowdfunding for Small Businesses and Startups. http://www.amazon.com/The-JOBS-Act-Crowdfunding-Businesses/dp/143024755X)

Here is the issue: I need to get to Boston and back. This is where you come in.

Please make a donation. A few things to note:

For those of you who are concerned that this is the first in a long string of appeals to finance my book trips, let me promise that if you donate this time, I won't ever accept another donation from you for another trip. And, keep in mind that if I complete this trip, the chances that I will have to ask for donations for my next trip goes down. Secondly, please note that if you selected a t-shirt as a perk, I will send it to you AFTER I GET BACK.

Thank you.
