Happy 80th Anniversary Boulder BPW!
Established in 1931, Boulder Business and Professional Women is a local membership organization. Their mission is to build full participation, equity, and economic self-sufficiency for working women. "Together we are powerful: professionally, politically, and personally."
enclosure-voice803_ 3/8/10 - Networking in these economic times
Nancy Chin Wagner and Bonni Doherty, Boulder Business & 
           Professional Women The first piece of advice Bonni Doherty offers in these challenging times you want to be focused first, on your health, believe it or not. When you go out to present to a company, presenting yourself, company or service, you want to look and feel your best. If you exercise, mediate, do yoga, eat right you're going to naturally feel more relaxed and shine. Bonni Doherty is the 2009 BPW Young Careerist Winner. Bonni's been involved in health care for 15 years now and within in BPW and the promotion of legislative issues as it relates to women, she focuses on the promotion of positive healthcare for women and the education around that. Larry interviewed Bonni and Nancy Chin Wagner who is the president of BPW. Nancy explained, "Boulder Business & Professional Women BPW, is an extraordinary group of people. What we do is promote participation, equity and economic self-sufficiency for working women. We have programs that are educational and informative that builds leadership and self-confidence. We're part of a national organization that was established in 1919." Bonnie went onto say, "Another thing, focus on what you want. If you go off on a tangent or anything like that people recognize that, you have to focus on what you want. As an entrepreneur you want to keep your overhead low. Especially today there are so many resources in the community that you can access. Networking groups where they can meet people that probably have an opportunity to be hired for a specific job - even if it's short term. In these economic times, we feel that you need to be working and doing something, it's really hard out there for everyone." Nancy was happy to announce two programs coming up, Celebration of Women, 3/18/10 and the Young Careerists Program, 4/15/10. Listen for more...

Where in the world is David Leonard now?... He is the CEO at WildBlue Communications. Two years ago he was Communications Exec of the Year. Learn more about David Leonard.
enclosure-voice804_ 3/8/10 - We're looking at an environment of chaos today
David Leonard, Communications Executive of the Year for CTP Learn some insights from a seasoned-pro. Stephanie Burnham, Vice President, CTP (Communications Technology Professionals) joins Larry in this pre-award interview with David Leonard, CTP's 2009 Executive of the Year. This is the tenth annual Stephanie Burnham, Vice President, CTPCEY celebration and Stephanie is anxious to share David Leonard's exemplary career accomplishments with our listeners and the many reasons he has been selected to receive this prestigious award. Recently David negotiated the sale of WildBlue to ViaSat. Stephanie asked, "Can you give us an understanding of some of the factors that impact the network infrastructure business today and in the future?" Dave's reply really made us take another look. "There are a whole host of factors that impact the network infrastructure business. We're looking at an environment of chaos today - in terms of Internet evolution and development. Compounding that is the evolution of broadband consumption on the Internet which is growing at an annual compound rate of - blended over all formats of use, is about 35% per year. But when you look at the individual components, video for example is growing at over 100% per year. I think a real challenge in that environment is how do you build a robust network infrastructure that will be there for the long term. The long term being from 5 to 25 years down the road. Added to that would be the developments we see in computing power, storage. Bill Gates likes to use the analogy, 'If you applied the same cost curves to the airline industry that you see in the storage industry, you'd be able to buy a 747 for the price of a pizza'. And this is true." Listen for more...

Helping existing businesses grow and expand
Sam Bailey, Program Director, Colorado Companies to Watch enclosure-voice 1180_ 3/19/12 - We're talking to a very popular guy, he works for the Governor's Office of Economic Development and International Trade as a relationship manager. That means he primarily works in business retention and expansion, helping existing businesses grow and expand their businesses, but also working to keep businesses here in the State of Colorado. In addition to this, Sam Bailey is also the program director for Colorado Companies to Watch. Sam says they're really the sales team for the State of Colorado, selling Colorado, promoting and really making this a great place not just to live and play, but also to conduct business. Larry asked, "Sam you run into and see all different kinds of businesses not only with CCTW, but obviously with OEDIT. With all the things we've been through in the last couple of years, can you give us a handle on the challenges businesses might be facing this coming year?" Sam pointed out, "One of the big issues that we're seeing is access to capital. Companies want to grow, but they are really looking for that backing to help them grow, grants, small business loans, venture capital. Banks are still at that point where they're still evaluating the risks, are not lending as much as they used to. So companies are really struggling to find that liquidity or access to capital to help expand, make capital investments in their company, acquire new equipment - So that's one issue that we've seen. Another issue is workforce, and that's throughout the state. Issue that there is a skills mismatch. We've got jobs here in the state, but having a trained, skilled workforce to fill those jobs is hard. So we're working with local institutions, higher education, community colleges, other industry associations to identify how can we be better at training our workers here in the state of Colorado so they can fill those positions with workers here in the state. Sam described the focus of Colorado Companies to Watch. "We're focused on second stage companies. In Colorado these are privately held, headquartered in Colorado, have between six to 99 employees, and have revenues between $750k to $50M. These are full startup companies, so they're really set to take off. The reason we focus on these companies is they make up roughly 8% of Colorado's economy, yet they account for almost 35% of all the jobs created." There's more...

Debbie Teter, Marketing Director, Garmat USA a Colorado Companies to Watch Winnerenclosure-voice 1182_ 3/19/12 - And yet another COCTW winner.

Debbie is Marketing Director for Garmat USA, a Colorado based manufacturer of paint spray booths and equipment. In her role Debbie wears many hats from in-house agency to event management.

Lucinda Sanders, CEO/Founder, National Center for Women and Information TechnologyLucy Sanders makes it her business to get women into technology! Lucy is the CEO and Founder of the National Center for Women and Tecthology. With a huge gap in our talent pool, we are facing a national crisis... and women can help save us... The Trend is Changing, statistics show that better than 50% of new entrepreneurus are female. NCWIT regularly introduces us to fabulous, successful women and technologies - Krista Marks, NCWIT HeroListen to her interview with Krista Marks, a Colorado Hero!...

Amazing story: Boulder to Disney
enclosure-voice 871_ 8/2/10- Lucy Sanders, Founder and CEO of the National Center for Women in Technology describes Krista Marks as, "A rare blend of technical accomplishment and social passion and entrepreneurial spirit. You cannot spend more than five seconds with Krista without getting all kinds of great information and energy and passion!" Krista is the co-founder of Kerpoof Studios which was acquired by Disney in 2008 and Krista is now the general manager of Disney Online Kerpoof Studios (and still based in Boulder). Lucy asked, "How did you get interested in technology?" Her interesting reply, "My entry into technology was not so smooth. When I went to college, I didn't even know about technology or pursuing a career in technology which for me, was electrical engineering. [But obviously there are a number of careers in technology.] For me, in high school, I gravitated to mathematics, science and problem solving, these were the areas I liked. Fortunately when I got to orientation for college, I sat next to a student who said they were going to major in electrical engineering. I didn't know what that is. "What is that?" And she said, 'I know that if you really like math and physics, it's the best major to have. I said, "Oh my god, those are my two favorite things. "So I fell into it. This is why NCWIT and the things you're doing, Lucy, is so critical, so important. I would like every student to be aware of the available opportunities when they're choosing a career. I did end up there and loved technology. In fact, from that point on I really wanted to be involved in designing technology. I spent the first eleven years designing custom electronics, and got to work around the world." In the first of many future integrations of Kerpoof technology, Disney.com has launched new features on its popular Characters portal (www.Disney.com/Characters). Now, when guests visit pages for characters such as Mickey and Friends, they will be able to create their very own customized pictures using an intuitive graphical interface. There's more...

How goes your global networking?
Michael Webb, aka Michael Moto and Michael Moto Japan work with their partners and clients to build global strategies to repositiono their portfolios in Japan and the USA... Two years ago w3w3® introduced you to Michael Webb aka Michael Moto.
802_ 3/8/10 - Some high growth areas throughout Asia
Michael Webb, Profile of a Leader enclosure-voiceLooking at 2009 and going forward - Michael Webb, founder of Michael Moto said "Like everyone we've been hit by the sluggish economy but we are actually picking up very, very well. We reported a profit for 2009, and a lot of that was through our operations in Japan. As you know the Yen to Dollar valuation, with the Yen being pegged about 90 yen to the dollar, has really changed the balance of trade that's going there. So for someone in Japan to buy from the U.S., their currency has never been stronger. Looking to the future, part of what we do is try to understand what the valuation of the dollar is going to be, how we can take advantage of that and how we can move into some high growth areas throughout Asia to leverage the currency market in our favor. During this 'Profile of a Leader' interview Larry discussed with Michael a number of foundational aspects of a successful leader: Influential people in his life and what that translates in today's world; Development of values and beliefs; challenges he had to learn to live with that could not be overcome; The turning point in his career learned experience; Larry also asked what advice this serial entrepreneur would give to a new entrepreneur; How does he bring balance to both his personal and business life coupled with the fact his businesses require a great deal of travel; Larry wanted to know how he wanted to be remember (his legacy)? Michael replied, "I'd love to be remembered as someone who gave back, someone who had convictions about he wanted to accomplish, and someday when there is a Eulogy, hopefully, that they would say, 'You know he was a really good guy and he helped others'. If that's all it said on my tombstone, I'm a happy man!"

Tom Krekel, CEO of Full Sail Strategies Execution, the difference between success and disappointment
enclosure-voice 1179_ 3/19/12 - It is interesting when speaking to many successful business leaders, we find a lot of grads from the 'school of hard knocks'. We are speaking with
Tom Krekel, CEO of Full Sail Strategies. He says he learned the hard way, he started his first business back in 1983, which they grew and developed. Over the last 30 years he has run and developed business that ranged in size from the startup that he had to companies that had a couple hundred employees. He wishes he had had access to the kind of resources out there that he now brings to companies through the Mastering the Rockefeller Habits seminar and workshops, they will be conducting in Denver on April 24th. Larry asked, "with the economy we've been through the last few years, with the challenges we've been through, what are the biggest challenges coming up this year?" Tom replied, "It's interesting, we talk about what's happened with the recession, new technology impacting businesses. If you go back to the early 90's, Fortune Magazine does a cover article, "Why do CEO's fail?" They looked at strategy, access to resources - cash? No, it was really all around execution. In their study, what they found was the ability to get people rowing in the same direction, at the same time, whatever you want to call execution, that really was the prime area and that's still true today. You see people who start businesses, thankfully because most of our new jobs come from small business startups. But regardless of the business type, they soon learn to grow they have to change from being a functional specialist to becoming a leader of other people. That's not an easy transition. What I try to do is have them focus on a couple of disciplines. Establish priorities, and btw Tom says he's gone into companies, "...and they pull out their 12 priorities - Tell you what, any more than five, those aren't priorities, that's a checklist." 1.) No more than five priorities and one has to be the top. 2.) You've got to have some metrics so you can see what's happening on a contemporaneous basis. Not things that look backward, but things that will help you predict the future. And 3.) You've got to put in communication rhythm to keep that pace going, make sure everyone is aligned around what the goals are. And you drill it right down to every member of the team." Listen for more great ideas...

The dot bomb that became a worldwide winner
Joe Assell, CEO/CoFounder, GolfTECenclosure-voice 1181_ 3/19/12 - The Rocky Mountain Corporate Growth Conference in Denver was kicked off with a great breakfast and as always smothered in comfortable, natural, awesome networking. No one was at a loss for words. Then the program began with the open fireside chat with guest, Joe Assell, Co-founder, CEO, President of Golf TEC. Larry interviewed Joe - 17 years in business & 148 locations. If you want to play better golf, you have come to the right place. For more than 15 years, GolfTEC has been helping golfers of all skill levels play better and enjoy the game more. Larry asked Joe to share some of his many experiences. "When you start up with an idea that's never been done before and you have to innovate along the way, there are trial and error and we certainly had a roller coaster in our business. The hardest part was the late 90's when we were navigating through the dot com days and we were really a service business, a golf lesson business, but all the investors wanted us to be a dot com. We tried to be a dot com but it led us to be a dot bomb. We ran into some severe problems and it was almost the end of our business. Joe was dating his future wife at the time and Joe told us she believed in him so much and encouraged him to stay with it, stating that she made enough to support both of them. In the meantime like so many startups have stated, Joe cleaned the bathrooms, gave golf lessons, did the marketing and anything else that was needed. "But we persevered and found the right partners and then from there road a really significant up where we partnered with a private equity fund. We partnered with Golf Smith to collocate and open our GolfTEC in their centers and we started franchising. Those three things... in 2007-08 we opened a new GolfTEC every nine days, 77 improvement centers in a two year period, and really cemented GolfTEC as the market leader in the United States for golf instruction." It took Joe/GolfTEC three years to hit their first million dollars. "Then it took another six or seven to do a million in a month. Then last year we did a million in a day. It's been fun to watch it grow" said Joe. Now they are in Mexico, Canada and...listen for more...
