The 4All Call Series

A place for veteran and military-spouse entrepreneurs to connect with a community they can trust.


4All Calls

The all-call announces a meeting for the purpose of sharing information, planning, or stepping off towards the objective.

These regional, virtual forums provide networking and mutual support for veteran and military-spouse entrepreneurs. Each no cost, monthly forum is focused on supporting a local ecosystem and welcomes participants from around the nation to get a little help and give a little help. Each All Call consists of sequential executive-pitches from those interested in sharing their businesses and how our community can help them.

Reblue

The rebluing process improves cosmetic appearance, prevents corrosion and improves overall functionality of a worn weapon.

Each Reblue is part of a 2-part series of ‘pay-what-it’s-worth’ workshops led by experts that deliver practical, impactful content in a collaborative way that serves to “reblue” the skills of veteran and military-spouse entrepreneurs.

All the Awesome Stuff We’ve Done Together:

October 29th, 2020 Reblue #1 – Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures Behind Winning Email Campaigns, with guest Emmanuel Eleyae, founder of Eleyae Systems. This Reblue debunked myths about email, taught an effective ‘workflow’ that any small-business owner can master, all the tricks to help you get into the inbox, get opened, and get clicked (like what subject lines are really the best…), and how to schedule your emails for maximum effectiveness.

“I’ve been doing email campaigns for 2 decades and this was the best training I’ve ever had…bar none!”

Jimmy Weeks, attendee of Reblue 1 and founder of Internet Strategy Labs

November 4th, 2020 5pm ET Reblue – Fortune is in the Followup: Using Email Automation to Make $ While You Sleep, This second Reblue taught email automation to help us engage clients/buyers throughout their ‘buyer experience’ with our business.  We now know how to create, schedule, and automatically deliver unique email content triggered by that user. Powerful stuff.
