It's Makeena on Google Play. Put in the code MJWEMC – the code is all caps. We're going to give you a $5 bonus that will go into your account to do the cash out. When you get to the 20 bucks, you can cash out through PayPal or Venmo. We'll give you five bucks after you redeem your first brand offer. It's got to be a brand offer. After you go the store and buy it or you have something sent to you. Scan that UPC or take a snapshot of the receipt. If you have put in that code at the very beginning, when you sign up for Makeena we'll put an extra five bucks in your account. Karen’s Advice I would just say if you are really passionate about solving a problem that you know, and actually, it should be pretty personal. Because you're going to live with whatever you're solving for a really long time. I would say go for it. You know, test it out, talk to potential customers, talk to your friends, talk to your family. But I would just say go for it and surround yourself with really smart, supportive people.
