"Dear Morgan,
I truly enjoyed your presentation yesterday at the Women in Leadership Summit. I love how your start-up business lessons learned tied in so well with lessons you learned while training in Jiu-Jitsu. Great job!! 
- Best,
Nadeene"

"Awesome hearing from @morganberman - founder & CEO of milkcrate - on entrepreneurship, shit storms, and jiu jitsu. Thanks for an enlightening and authentic session!" - Laura

"Enjoyed your session...especially your integration of martial arts. I did a few years of Muay Thai and MMA. Although a "strike" discipline might not be best to apply to business :)" - Tonya

"I want to thank you so very much, of behalf of myself and the Ursinus students, for taking the time out of your busy schedule to meet with us. The students found your journey very inspiring!  Your openness, frankness and candor were appreciated. We learned about grit, tenacity, innovation and smarts from you!" 
- Maureen Cumpstone, Entrepreneur-in-Residence U-Imagine Center for Integrative and Entrepreneurial Studies

"I really enjoyed listening to your speech and learning about your experiences and how you got to where you are today."
- Rebecca M. 

"It was great to hear your story... you inspired me to look at challenges differently. Rather than being nervous, I am excited and confident for opportunities that come my way. Thank you so much!" - Claire M.
