Thank you for your support! I am sorry you had problem with the link, because the audition had a different format and I really need the feed back of all of you. If you want to try again when you go to HGTV.com, try the tab for "Design Star" my audition is under "Style and Substance".
Thank you for your words of support regarding my work.
How can you help me? Have other colleagues and your friends check my audition out.
Thanks again!

Please pass on the information to friends and family - all screenings are

Take care Amiga,
Angie Reyes English

Sure. I don't know what my schedule will look like yet. What is your friend looking to do?
At 1:20pm on October 14, 2008, Leslie said…
Sounds like a good idea. I checked out your web page, and it is very similar to the business I am trying to create in nyc. We should touch base.

That's great, thank you for your comment. Small world, you just never know
who's your neighbor, huh? I'm encouraged to always do better and the support
of strong women such as you, Aurora, Sarah, Goethy, Jacqueline and Vanessa is greatly appreciated. Let's keep up the good work we all do to
provide for our families and benefit our communities. On a side note to our
small business owners, hosting a Vendor Procurement Fair on Friday,
November 21, 2008 in Hawthorne providing information to businesses on how to get certified to do business with the state of California through contracting.
I'm currently in the planning stages and as soon as the flyer is ready I will
post to our upcoming events page here at NSHP. My hope is for Latinos
and minority business owners to take advance of this opportunity by getting
certified. If you reside in another state such as Texas, Florida, New York
etc. please visit your elected representatives websites to see if any of them
chair any committees on jobs, economy and/or procurement and contact them
to ask how you could get information on certification. Hope to see many of
you at upcoming business fair. Much success and God bless!

Hello! I'm glad to see you've joined our California group! I just started a new discussion, come introduce yourself here!
At 2:30pm on October 8, 2008, NSHP admin said…
Sure! a good and free way to start is to post the event in local websites; craigslist, LA area events, and so forth. We will do our best by posting the event on this site and feel free to get back to me should you have further questions.

best of luck!

That's funny, I don't see you in the group. You may want to try to join again as I don't think you are showing up in the group membership on the right side of the CA page.

As for your event, you are welcome to post it in the events section of this website if you haven't already. Also I would write a press release about the event and send it out to your local media outlets and also contact local organizations which may be able to involve their members etc. Perhaps reach out to local schools as well. Good luck!
