Much thanks to Richard Oppenheim and Ken Wyble for launching the new South Denver IDEA Cafe yesterday at Koelbel Library. Their next meeting will be in February, when they will make a final decision about whether to meet once a month, once a week, or never again. :)

Thanks to the magic of modern technology, your new, free Small Business Chamber of Commerce now has a daily newsletter focused on startup and small business. (See the link to the left here on this page.) Read it for a few days, and then let me know what you think of it. The real test will be how many new "Likes" we get from the link to our Small Business Chamber Facebook Page

We are back downtown to Panera Bread for the Small Business Chamber's Denver IDEA Cafe startup workshop next Friday (Jan 21), if you'd like to attend there is more information and an optional RSVP to make sure you have a seat at the brainstorming table at

The new Franklin Circle Alpha Group still has a couple of open seats. If you'd like more about it, or more about how you can start or join another Franklin Circle focused on your needs, please attend one of the free information sessions. Next week there will be free info sessions at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday (Jan 20) at Perkins, just south of I25 on Colorado Blvd, and another at 4:30 p.m. at Panera Bread, 13th & Grant right after the IDEA Cafe.

Hope you have a great week. If it gets off to a good start for you, great! But if you get stuck, give me a call, OK? Let's get started!
