Water 2.0 to Host Webinar: Elements of Trump’s Tax Plan – Weds 12/5 2PM ET

Posted on December 4th, 2018 | No Comments »

Water 2.0 and the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) and are hosting a webinar series lead by Rob Brinkman, the Founder of Safe Harbour Retirement. His webinar on Block Chain was our highest attended online event in 2018. I have asked Rob to prepare a special series on the critical elements affecting business owners and entrepreneurs today. Rob was a managing executive at a large publicly traded company and has initiated several very prosperous start-ups. His successful endeavors prompted me to ask him to mentor us through the fundamentals that he has implemented in his own firm. This is the first in a series of four webinars; two in December and two in January.
