Rainbow Push Pushing for Google Diversification

  • #urbanpossibilities and #hoodabdul @googlebinocularsbuilding

On June 30, 2015, definitely a big day. The end of the sixth cycle. The beginning of something vital, for Urban Possibilities and all small businesses and non-profits alike.

  • Networking with the Dream Makers, Risk Takers and the Money Makers.
  • @ 340 Main. St. Venice ca. 90291. Start time 5:30pm.

It was a pleasure from the beginning, here to network while being of service to our community of writers.

Urban Possibilities is transforming lives. We envision the transformation of a program into the staple of rebuilding the minds of those who have lost hope.

I am ready to take down seeds to give back after they have been collected. I've heard of the Rainbow Coalition.

  • Rainbow Push? Is to be continued. To take an educated guess a movement is about to begin. Urban Possibilities wants to be on the forefront of change. We are writers coming from backgrounds that have humbled and hardened our hearts. Locking or unlocking our minds. I'm underdressed, I don't think that's going to stop me though. I'm in the lobby of the Binoculars Building ready to listen. I see gift bags. Thank You Eyvette!
  • Idea: " Urban Possibilities App " - The place where we can log in, post video, pics with exclusive layouts developed and designed by Urban Possibilities. Link to a publishing program to build and maintain via download. Could we capture the positivity via pics and video. Through articles and performances shared via app members, then to public. Private app exclusive to members.
  • Jalihla - is the first person I was able to meet she was with the "PR" department asking if I was with the press.

So many people, gracing this Google building, that before now I had no idea existed.

Networking their angles. I made a contact from a random approach by:
