JohnWren.com +Recover+Start+Grow+Flourish+: The Startup Show 8/14/15:

Today, books that have been important to getting to this point, and more about what this point looks like and the road ahead. To be on the show to share your experience with us from in front of your webcam, call John Wren (303)861-1447

Tonight! Socrates Cafe: Philosophy of Startup & New Thought.

Group chooses final topic, but I'm going to suggest the topic tonight (Sat, 9/15) of the philosophy of Startup and it's connection to New Thought, in honor of Denver Startup Week which is almost here and a book I've been reading about the history of what some call New Thought.

Or you may have a better idea for a topic, if so, great! Bring it and we'll let the group decide, as always. There is never a final, pronounced topic. We want to share our own thinking, informed by our reading, the meeting is not just taking turns reading and reciting to each others the thinking others have written down.

Check out tonight's Socrates Cafe at DU and the other meetings on our Meetup site, where you can also RSVP yes or no if you want to get an invitation to future Socrates Cafes in Colorado. See http://Meetup.com/Colorado-Socrates-Cafe-Society or call (303)861-1447 with any questions.

How to start a new business.

How do you start a new business?

The short answer: Get a customer.

Of course there is more to it than that. Usually there is the decision to be in business. Then preparation. Then selling the first customer. 

This is not a linear process. Some may be on the step of making a decision until they die without ever starting anything. Or some who have definitely made up their mind spend their life getting ready.

And some start with seemingly no decision and no preparation. But if you get them alone and listen carefully you can here some moment when a decision is made, often with the preparation already in place.

A very, very successful business person told me this moment happened on a ski lift, the preparation had already taken place with education and job experience he suddenly saw. Until that moment he'd never thought of being in business for himself. Getting fired or treated poorly in some other way by an employer often has this effect.

The best book for people who are starting? Just Start, Harvard Business Review Press.  Go to Amazon, search on Just Start. While you are there take a look at my little book, very simple, talks about the four phases of startup, search for it on Amazon with my name John Wren Daring Mighty Things.

This life, this day, is very short. Let's go get started!
