Our Mission

So, what is our Mission?

To deliver outstanding educational, interactive and fun programs that are designed to maximize the amount of time your spend business networking and turning those "chance" meetings into profits. We don't just tell you how to do it, we show you step-by-step how to turn those Contacts into Contracts. EspressoBrain helps you become among the well prepared and connected.

So, who are we?

EspressoBrain.com is a collaboration of individuals with a diverse skill set. In 2008 when the economy was literally crashing, Espressobrain.com teamed up with Mel Kaufmann the author of the Little Miracles to provide direction to individuals, business owners, and sales teams on how to maximize the time they spent "networking". Bringing the information into the 21st century, EspressoBrain.Com created a BizBits app for IPhone and Android which made it easy to get this valuable information out to their online community; the app itself is a valuable networking tool.
