One thought on “Pitch Wars…the agents!

  1. Yikes, I have been neglectful about getting involved with this. Maybe I can still squeak in tomorrow. Thank you for the updates.

    I know you had previously been tagged on “The Next Big Thing” but I tagged you again :). I'm pretty sure you mentioned have another project so I thought maybe you could discuss the other. No pressure if you don't get to it, but if you decide to participate it is for Week 28 (which means you would post on December 12th).

    So here is my post if you want a refresher:
