Great videos already that will be tough to beat! I'm working on finishing up one today--I doubt it can match the previous deserving contenders, but it's a fun project nonetheless. :) Thanks for the opportunity!

I've uploaded a video for the contest. Thank you so much for offering this--what an excellent opportunity! I am new to the industry--but my job is SEO and I am very excited to learn all I can. There are so many incredible speakers listed to present at the Boot Camp--I follow many of the webinars and websites these people offer. They are celebrities to me!
