Ken Wyble did a great job leading the Denver IDEA Cafe yesterday, he'll be back again next week and this time he'll bring a couple of entrepreneurs with him to share how they got started. Join us if you're starting in a new direction, and please let your friends know about it who might be interested. More information at

Your new, free Small Business Chamber of Commerce is about to get underway. We are going to have our first Second Saturday "Big Event" when the Denver Group gets to 1000 Facebook members, and we are approaching that now. Help us hit it by joining yourself and letting your friends know about it who might be interested. See link to the Denver group at, and while you are there check out the very interesting and informative video "Where Good Ideas Come From and "Like" the SBCC Page, if you haven't already.

I'm still recruiting members for the Franklin Circle Alpha Group, please let me know if you're interested. If you've told me you are interested before and I haven't gotten back to you, please ask me again, OK?

Hope you have a great week, and remember:

As going through life,
Whatever be your goal,
Keep your eye upon the donut,
And not upon the hole!

Thanks for the great memory, Pop.

Now let's get started!

Enough celebrating Thanksgiving, now let's get back to work for at least a few days until the Christmas celebration picks up steam. :)

My efforts are more and more focused on developing your new, free Small Business Chamber of Commerce. I've gotten lots of encouragement. Just got this email today:

"I support what you are doing. The chamber of commerce has not, for many years, offered much support for small businesses, and your organization is a much needed asset. The national chamber has focused on medium and large businesses for years, and only used the truly small local businesses as a revenue base to support the local offices while they became a lobbying arm immersed in crony capitalism at the higher government levels."

The new Denver Facebook Small Business Chamber Group is now nearly 700 members, when it hits 1000 we'll schedule our first Second Saturday "Big Event," probably in January. You can get to it via our Facebook Page at, and please invite your Facebook friends to join us, too.

Not using Facebook yet. You will at some point. :) In the mean time you can follow what we are doing on our blog  Or just give me a call, it would be good to talk with you. :)

I'm forming the Franklin Circle Alpha Group, the last Franklin Circle I'll ever personally organize and facilitate. It's open to entrepreneurs, business owners and creative managers who are serious about their success and want to be part of a group of similar people in a well organized peer advisory or mastermind group. Let me know if you want more information about it. As always, contact me at (303)861-1447 or
