Life is too short for any of us to learn from just our own experience!

Join us this afternoon for the Denver IDEA Cafe Startup Workshop at 3:45 p.m. or the Denver IDEA Startup Salon at 2:30 p.m., both at Panera Bread, 13th & Grant.

Our Small Business Chamber IDEA Cafe is the workshop that I've led here in Denver for nearly 20 years. 5280 Magazine says it's infused Denver with an entrepreneurial spirit. Join us for it any time you're headed in a new direction with your work. We say if we're successful you'll be too busy to come back the next week.

Our new IDEA Startup Salon is an open discussion meeting, we share startup experience about topics that are brought by those attending. Join us anytime you have a problem with your work as you start in a new direction, starting a new career, a new project or campaign, or a new business. Most who attend have already attended an IDEA Cafe, but that is not a requirement.

Right now we also have meetings in Englewood and Boulder County here in metro-Denver, we are getting more serious about getting groups kicked off in other parts of Denver, across Colorado, and possibly beyond. If you'd like our help getting a new group started in cooperation with your local chamber or other group give me a call.

Professor Edmund Phelps & Professor AC Grayling talk on 'Mass Flourishing'

Mass Flourishing came out in the fall, there was a review of it in the Wall Street Journal October 18, and the author has this talk and a similar talk that preceded it that he gave at Google Author Talks on YouTube. It should be on the best seller list by now, in my opinion.

Why do Seth Godin and Daniel Pink get so much more press? This is a real heavy weight in economics making some hard, insightful comments that should shake the world of economics to it's foundation, it should "transform economics" as mention in the introduction here:
