The word "Mavens" means in part someone who gathers vital information and wilfully shares it with others. Actually we "delight" in sharing information with others. It is nice to get paid but that is not why iMavens was started or exist. In order to communicate iMavens' message you have to start with the "Why" and then answer the "How" and then explain the "What" of any company. It is an inside out approach versus outside in. For example, most companies communicate in the reverse i.e. they tell you "what" they do, fewer tell you "how" they do and fewer still never get around to telling you "Why" they exist. A company's main goal can't be to just make money because companies with only that goal don't have any real staying power.
"Why" iMavens exist "How" we do it and "What " we do.
