Startup Show Mentions Today.

Below are items that were mentioned on today's Startup Show, which you can still see if you "Visit Group" on and join us. I suggest you check it out first or these cryptic notes may not mean much to you.

The Startup Show is looking for sponsors, call me if you might be interested. (303)861-1447 For now I'm the only source of money for what we are doing, it's been a decades long labor of love. More about my alt-ego, the Small Business Chamber of Commerce, Inc at

Also see and for more information about the free meetings here in Denver. 5280 Magazine has said they have "infused Denver with an entrepreneurial spirit," and I'd like to help you and your local chamber do the same thing.

A new group we are trying is the Speakers Corner Dialogue Group, it's each Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m., next week we hear from one of the statewide candidates, join us if you can! where you'll also info about our two Faculty Club meetings.

This is the issue I mentioned on the startup show today as a way to meet new people. Check it out:

Jordan Peterson is wrong about goal setting.

Peterson prescribes goal setting as a key ingredient in a happy, successful life. He is wrong.

Repeated studies show there is just no correlation between having written goals and success in any way you want to measure it.

Check out this foudational Harvard study of the question:

Why do we hear so much about goal setting? Because it's a good seller in book stores, talks on the lecture circuit, and in consulting.

What do successful people do instead? My experience and education has taught me they practice the same recover, imagine, think, learn skills of the successful startup.

Won't you be my neighbor?

On the Startup Show today: Is Jordan Peterson our new Mr. Rogers?

New book is out about Fred Rogers and there was a recent documentary. Tom Hanks is playing Mr. Rogers in a new docu-drama about the very popular public TV show of his.

What I've suddenly realized is the young men who are so attracted to Jordan Peterson are the ones who grewup with Mr. Rogers instead of a father.

I'll talk about this more on today's Startup Show, live at 10 a.m. MDT, 9 Pacific, noon Eastern today and each morning Monday thru Friday, "Visit Group" on and join us (it's free) if you haven't already.


Jordan Peterson at Paramount Theatre here in Denver last night. Amazing. I didn’t see one ad. He’s as popular as the Cable Guy who I saw with my son, sold out with no Denver advertising. Stop to think about it, Peterson and the Cable Guy have pretty much the same message, “let’s git er done”
