I always thought that starting a business was something for a professional, but I learned we already had what we needed, we knew how to put it out there, to speak it into existence.
I got a phone call, “Where are you? I want to do an interview.” I said, "but I'm in LA." EWI had given my number to a reporter. Immediately after a five hour flight, the woman interviewed me for about two hours. I was really tired. The reporter was from NPR, so the interview went on the radio. The next day I received like hundreds of orders for my product, Africa Memory Game, and I was sold out. That is the EWI effect.
