Jared Polis (left) told us about how he started Pro Flowers at the Denver IDEA Cafe last Friday

He told us he did no market research and no formal planning before launching his business selling flowers directly from the grower to the consumer.

The new University of Colorado football coach Dan Hawkins (top pictures, the guy with hair) told our Denver Lions Club yesterday that he expects the Buffs to fare much better next year.
"Coaching became much more enjoyable to me over 20 years ago, and I started building winning teams, when I started focusing on what I can do for the players to make a positive contribution to their lives. It's not just about beating Nebraska and Colorado State. Although if we don't beat them next year you'll probably have a different speaker here with you!" He admires Ghandi and Mother Terresa, he thinks everyone involved in leadership and team building should read Phil Jackson's book Sacred Hoops.
