We have our first online IDEA Cafe Startup Workshop next Monday, Oct 8, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Mountain, hope you'll join us! Limited to the first 21 to RSVP, we may break into groups of 3 for Fresh Thought Hunts, thanks to Charlie Kiefer co-author of Just Start for teaching me the powerful technique that works so well.  Also, I'm giving a talk next Friday at our Denver IDEA Cafe and will publish here the final article that results after our discussion. Hope you can join us next Friday. Details and RSVP for either or both meetngs at 

Just Start is offering another 9 session online workshop again, 1st session is October 10. I've done this and found it very helpful, I recommend it to anyone who is starting in a new direction with their work or who works with startups. For more see 

Here's a message I'm sending out now to people who "Like" our Facebook Page, what I say in it goes for you who read it here now, too. :)

Thanks for the "Like" on our Facebook Page.

Would you be willing to help us? Or do you know anyone who would? 

For nearly 20 years we've been holding startup workshops that 5280 Magazine says have "infused Denver with an entrepreneurial spirit."

We've also been helping people start peer advisory groups based on what Ben Franklin did with his friends. For more about them, just Google "How to Start a Franklin Circle."

Now we've started the Small Business Chamber of Commerce to help local chambers and other groups to start similar workshops and circles across Colorado and beyond.

If we are successful we'll reduce the unemployment rate.

We now need volunteers to help us, to share startup experience and to take a leadership role in the new groups that are starting. We are also forming a board of directors, and hope to establish an annual conference starting next January 17, Ben Franklin's birthday.

All sorts of talents are needed. If you'd be willing to help us, or if you'd like more information about how we can help you get started now, please send me an email and let me know when a good time to reach you on the telephone in the next few days.

Thanks! I look forward to the possibility of us being of service, to make sure the American dream is still a possibility for our grandchildren.
