The Early Days of .gif Files
Think back to the early days of the internet, back to the time where you went to the store and shelled out a hard-earned $40 to purchase a screensaver featuring flying toasters in order to prevent screen-burn on your bulbous CRT monitor. Now remember the visual smorgasbord that the best internet marketers were employing at the time – an all-in appeal to grab your attention for more than a fleeting second. Yes, I’m talking about the early days of the animated .gif file format.
In 2012, the U.S. passed the JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act with bi-partisan support. But what effect does that have on American entrepreneurs, and how can you leverage this within your own start-up? In this short video, EO Los Angeles member Ron Miller gives an overview of this legislation, the opportunities it brings to entrepreneurs and tips for marketing to your fans – who can now invest in your company.

When I joined EO, I was 75 pounds heavier than I am today. I remember sitting at a Warren Rustand event with a beer in my hand thinking to myself, why are all these successful entrepreneurs in shape, and I’m the only fatso in the room?
The problem was that I was completely unaware that I was obese. Sure, I knew that I was fatter than I would like to be, but I focused on my business and I didn’t think that my health impacted the way I showed up in the business. Making my business the number-one priority before my personal well-being held us back.
