Tiger talks on Local Business Panel

The Hillsborough County Entrepreneur Collaborative Center in Ybor City puts on a local business panel every other week. Hosted by Lynn Kroesen. This week's event focus on Asian America Entrepreneurs and Military Appreciation.  As I be both Chinese n' a former US Army Officer, this pirate fit in nicely.

The first topic I talked about how Pirate Fashions makes arrr plunder n' what real pirate clothing be called.  The second topic was how we deal with Gasparilla n' what we do fer the rest of the year.  The third question be how to run a business without sales or advertising, make great product in a niche. That last being about how I don't look like Capt Jack Sparrow. Lady Honrado-Rosal of 7th Sky be a master rum taster (sounds like a pretty good business) n' Lady Lavin of Luminary Global be a disaster preparedness bag business.
