Listening to the four panel speakers was very informative. I wasn't all that interested in becoming a boss and running my own business. Hearing what they had to say about their struggles allowed me up understand that there isn't just financial issues that come up. All of the speakers were also very diverse, it wasn't just all clothing entrepreneur, there was a blogger and an artist.

Neither presenter talked much about testing ideas or how to identify and acquire customers. They mostly talked about themselves and difficulties they have experienced in trying to grow their businesses.

It was a good seminar. However, the photographer was annoying and distracting
