I can’t think of a better example of the DIYMarketers mindset than Barbara Corcoran’s quote here.

As I travel to New York City for the Entrepreneur Magazine Event #Ready2Launch sponsored by Canon, I’m inspired by every small business owner who trusts themselves over the gurus and has the guts to go against the grain.

Speaking of going against the grain – I wanted to give everyone a heads-up on a few of the events DIYMarketers is going to be hosting as part of a special series that are being sponsored by Canon.

Monday and Tuesday September 22 and 23: I’ll be tweeting and posting from the Entrepreneur Magazine Event #Ready2Launch – so head over to Twitter and follow that hashtag. I’ll also be posting to Google+ under my DIYMarketers Profile.

Friday, September 24, I’m launching the new “Read it and Reap” Hangout on Air series where I interview authors of some of the best marketing books out there. Our guest this week is +Phil Bowyer, marketing expert, engagement advocate and general rule breaker. Phil is the author of “Coloring Outside the Lines”?
