Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, Founder, 
        CMO, Gilt Groupe It is also important to have mentors
enclosure-voice 987_ 3/21/11 - This series is a real jewel and a valuable set of tools for the future of young women and everyone who has the good fortune to listen. Lee Kennedy, board member for NCWIT and founder of BolderSearch.com along with Larry Nelson, w3w3.com are speaking with Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, founder and Chief Marketing Officer, Gilt Groupe, an innovative company that's revolutionized the fashion industry and ecommerce in general. Alexandra has been featured on Forbes, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, and many times on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox. "We launched Gilt Groupe in November 2007. We were inspired by a love of fashion and the excitement of a New York Sample Sale. We wanted to bring this excitement online for the first time in the U.S." Lee said, "We'd love to hear how you got into technology." Alexandra's reply, "Prior to launching Gilt Groupe, I hadn't worked in technology in any official capacity. I'd been working for Bulgari and Louis Vuitton after business school in much more of a bricks and mortar environment. My co-founder, Alexis Maybank is the reverse of that. She had worked at eBay, an early employee there, and scaled from 40 to about 5000 employees over a five year period. So she had terrific ecommerce experience. However, Alexandra considers herself an early adopter as a consumer. Larry asked, "What is it about being an entrepreneur that makes you tick?" She answered, "Prior to launching Gilt Groupe, my resume didn't look like an entrepreneur. But I think it is something innate, something I was born with in terms of my creativity and my spirit, my father is an entrepreneur. I was the little girl growing up in New York City who loved having lemonade stands and while I had the lemonade stand, I would sell the bracelets that I made, off of my wrist. So I was always into business ideas from a very young age. I had a baby sitting business that I built, so I think it comes from within. Something important to think about is there so many different types of entrepreneurs. They're...Listen for more...

Decide, clearly, specifically and positively what you want
Robert White, Extraordinary Peopleenclosure-voice 985_ 3/21/11 - We are back with Robert White and we're going to talk about the eight power principles for achieving extraordinary success. “The last time we talked Robert, you emphasized the importance of becoming clear on our personal purpose, vision, value and strategic intent. Let me ask this, if we're already working on those and could be reflective on those pieces, what comes next? What actually do we have to do to be committed to extraordinary success?” Robert replied, "Let's just say we've made a decision that we might, maybe, perhaps want to entertain being extraordinary. For most people they want to be a little bit better. My experience is being a little bit better brings up a little resistance. So as you try to get a little better, all of your beliefs, all of the resistance you have from early in your life meet that desire to get better. So what it takes is a leap, a really good, strong commitment to say, Hey, I don't want to be just a little bit better - I want my life to be extraordinary. I want the family, the business success, the financial freedom. The moment you do that, the moment you're really clear on what you want to have, there are two components. First you have to do something to get what you want, but secondly you're going to have to improve your state of being. Ultimately it requires that combination of being and doing, if you want to create extraordinary success in your life. Robert has a 21 page report, they wrote based on 30 years research, and he is happy to provide this for people. But briefly they are 1.) Decide, clearly, specifically and positively what you want. 2.) Get really rigorous about telling the truth, first to yourself and then to others. 3.) Express yourself, to be fully who you are in the world. 4.) Take personal responsibility. We live in a victim culture; we live in a culture of blame which creates regret, shame. It is a horrible down cycle in people's lives. Taking personal responsibility gives you your power back..." ...listen now, there's much more...

If you're an older person, tap into the younger generation
Alex Porter, President, Location 3 Media, and a 50 Colorado Companies to Watch Winnerenclosure-voice 983_ 3/14/11 - We are here at one of the Colorado Companies to Watch Winners for 2010-11, Alex Porter, President of Location3 Media, a digital marketing agency specializing in developing web sites that have great user experiences, that can also be found on the search engines, and then they drive traffic to those webs sites through whatever medium makes the most sense for the clients strategies. Location 3 Media was founded about six months after Google and have really been in the search space along with Google growing up. Larry asked, "How should entrepreneurs be leveraging their digital marketing to help grow their startups?" Alex pointed out, "Startups today, are in a pretty unique position, in the sense that there are so many non traditional ways to get the word out about what they're doing. When we speak with companies just starting out, our first step is to figure out who they're target audience is and where they live out in the digital universe. One of the easiest things to do is to write compelling content around their enterprise. So, what it is, why it's useful, what market is it serving, etc. Then it's finding people online in those areas, whether it's a blog or finding someone with a large following on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. There are so many free opportunities to spread that content. If I was starting up a business today, I would find out who those influential people are, and connect with them through these various entities and then allow them to spread the word. It's really seeding that content, seeding that startup idea and you're going to start getting traffic back to your site and letting it organically grow from there. So there's a lot of great opportunities in the digital space for entrepreneurs today. . We're seeing schools and universities starting to incorporate some of these concepts in their marketing programs, but truly it's difficult to do without immersing yourself in the subject matter. There are some buzz words these days. A digital native and it's really this generation that's growing up immersed in this. One of the things we do is get young kids in here that know nothing but this and allow a lot of ideas flow from them to how we should be able to reach this audience. If you're an older person, I would tap into that younger generation." Alex goes onto talking about challenges and choices for entrepreneurs...

Eco-Friendly Full Service Auto Repair - Gentler on the Environment - Easier on Your Wallet, Green Garageenclosure-voice 981_ 3/14/11 - We're back with Ryan Ferrero, CEO and founder of Green Garage and this is part 2 of the interview. If you missed the first interview, we have a link below in the Related Links section. Do tune into it, there's very good information there. One of the things I have to ask is what can Green Garage actually do to help improve fuel economy and reduce oil consumption? Ryan replied, "When we started building our business platform at Green Garage, we realized there is no real advocate brand behind fuel economy. Who out there really has your fuel economy as their vested issue? So we have to legislate it, right? So what we found looking through a variety of products, one of our 'greens keepers', as we call them, Ernie Levine, claims he went over a thousand products that he looked at and we came down to six. So quite a few of the products in this space did not vet correctly or didn't work for us. But we found six to start with that really made a difference on the environment. Our product basket now is nearly 50. But many of these products help with fuel economy, and they may start with zero from your wallet. Basically it is helping you operate your car more efficiently. So when we were kids we learned how to check for blind spots, safe following distance, how to merge safely... Now, there are a lot of techniques for how to operate your car for more efficiency. You know, it's surprising, but up to 33% of your highway fuel economy can be improved by just operating the car better. Then we can get into more advanced sparkplugs where you get better ignition, more complete combustion so you get not only better fuel economy, but less emissions and more power in some instances. All of these are at the same price or less than the comparable brands out there. But these are small startup companies that need their day in the sun. Nitrogen in your tires - it's a larger molecule, especially in Colorado where you get rubber contracting and expanding with our crazy temperature swings. Nitrogen is less apt to have that fluctuation, more constant psi and you get better fuel economy."...listen now.

$40 million business from 2 to 225 employees
David Brown, Keynote - ACG March with Larry Nelson, Kathleen Quin Votaw and Chet Marinoenclosure-voice 984_ 3/14/11 - We're at the ACG Denver Luncheon conference and were able to corner the keynote speaker with the help of Chet Marino who lines up all these folks. But this is a guy Larry interviewed three years ago. By way of introduction,Chet said, "We have a really neat story of a successful startup and also an acquisition that went well. So David Brown has a great story to tell about founding a company and all the things that go with that as well as a successful integration. I think you'll benefit from hearing his story." Larry asked, "What are some of the challenges you've had to go through in the past few years and I'd also like to ask about the future?" David replied, "So we've been in business for 17 years, we've grown tremendously. We started literally as two guys in a garage. Well maybe not in a garage, but other than that, it was just two guys trying to rub sticks together to start a business. And over the years we've grown into a $40 million business with about 225 employees here in Colorado and part of something larger in terms of the broader ZOLL. We've done that by bringing good products to customers with real world solutions that help save lives and had excellent growth over the years and are hoping to continue that upward trajectory for many years to come. You know I like to say you don't get growth without growing pains. And certainly when we were small and everyone understood the business very deeply; it was much easier to have people work on several things. As we've grown we find ourselves with silos and the feeling that the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. So it's an ongoing process." One of Larry's favorite questions, "What is some advice you have for entrepreneurs today for the future?" David replied, "Well don't give up! I work a lot with entrepreneurs as part of my affiliation with the TechStars program, I certainly consider myself very entrepreneurial, even in this organization of our size now. You know, obviously in the early days we were very cash strapped, very small and ran into challenges, as all entrepreneurs will. I think the thing that makes the difference between those that succeed and those that don't, are those that are willing to take on the challenges head-on and find a way, one way or another to climb that wall and get over to the other side."...listen now ...

Voted the best small healthcare organization in Colorado
Dr. Kenneth L. Weiner, CEO and CMO, Eating 
    Recovery Centerenclosure-voice 982_ 3/147/11 - We are with a very interesting company today, A Colorado's 50 Companies to Watch 2010-11, winner . We're here with Dr. Kenneth Weiner, and he is the CEO and Chief Medical Officer for the Eating Recovery Center. We begin with an overview of Dr. Weiner's business and Dr. Weiner explains, "This is a healthcare organization, Larry. We were actually fortunate enough to be voted the best small healthcare organization in the State of Colorado by the Denver Business Journal, in our first full year of operation. What we do is a real specialized care. We take care of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, in children, adolescents and adults, men and women, boys and girls. We are a national center and focus on just those two illnesses and related eating disorders, so a very specialized piece of the behavioral health market. Larry asked, "Kenneth, you have a very interesting background, you deal with all kinds of individuals as well as companies, of course. What do you think are some of the biggest challenges for companies today?" Dr. Weiner replied, "I think in this economic market that we're currently in, there are a bunch of challenges. For us as an organization, we want to be 'best in class'. So we really focus in on our defined patient population, we've brought in top leadership from around the country - so here we have four of the top 20 people in the world work with us. We've also separated ourselves from the competition. I think if you want to compete in this marketplace, you have to be best in class, you have to separate yourself. One of the ways we've done that, we set up the center with all levels of care. We are licensed as a psychiatric hospital; we do inpatient work so we're able to take the sickest of the sick patients from around the country and around the world. We actually have a relationship with Denver Health and Dr. Phil Mahler who is their CMO, something called the Acute Program where we'll have patients air ambulanced in from around the country - 40-50% of ideal body weight. So someone who is 5'4" might weigh 50-55 pounds. We'll stabilize those people medically."Larry asked, "What kind of advice would you give to an entrepreneur today?" His reply, "I would say, make sure you have a really good business plan, and that you put together what's necessary to effectively compete in your market. That you provide and deliver more than your competitors, you're adequately capitalized and. That you surround yourself, and Larry, one of the keys to our success is we really have a culture of competence here." Listen for more...
