Larry Nelsoon and Aaron Harber, The Aaron Harber Show on Channel 3, Sunday Evenings at 8:00pm Aaron Harber, what government could learn from entrepreneurs
enclosure-voice 1210_ 5/14/12 - Our political environment is in a shambles and there is little opportunity to learn about the issues or the candidates in this super charged, unhealthy atmosphere.'s policy has been to avoid politics in favor of following the people and affirmative activities that make our business and economic environment work, and grow a healthy future. As we face another presidential election as well as state and national elections, we have discovered Aaron Harber, who with his TV show, presents non-partisan, mutually respectful, civil conversations about controversial issues in the political arena. It sounds like a dream come true and the opportunity for to help bring light to a very important area of our lives. This information has a tremendous impact on our business and local communities. Aaron tells us about his show, "The program is really an opportunity for people to see those opinion leaders, people in government, in business and academia and the media, talking about the key issues of the day. The show's effort is to always be non-partisan, so you see as many republicans as democrats on the show. And", said Aaron, "we wanted to be a place where people could come with confidence, knowing that they're going to get accurate information. The whole purpose is to demonstrate that you can have a mutually respectful, civil conversation about controversial issues. Which of course, you don't see a lot of on television today." With his entrepreneurial background we asked Aaron what government could learn from entrepreneurs and business. His answer, boiled down to learning efficiencies and setting priorities. One of the advantages in the free market is you rarely can do everything you want to do. In business there is a much greater distinction than government, between doing what you absolutely have to do vs. doing what you would like to do. You see more the necessity in business than you do in government. Government entities, while well intentioned, there is a tendency to do as much as government entities would like to do, and feel is a good thing to do. So the intention is positive but the decision that really should be made in government is what is it that we really have to do. You can find The Aaron Harber Show on Sunday evenings on Colorado TV Channel 3 at 8:00pm.

Kathleen Pelley, Children's Author and Philanthropist
enclosure-voice 1206_ 5/7/12 - Kathleen Pelley's passion for stories stemmed from listening to them. She was born in Glasgow, Scotland a country famous for its heather dappled mountains Kathleen T. Pelley, Children's Authorand a treasure chest of stories. Her gentle Irish father also loved to feed Kathleen his own tales of fairies, leprechauns, and banshees. As an elementary teacher, Kathleen loved teaching language and history and drama. "In my classroom I always made plenty of time for reading stories aloud to my students, no matter what age they were." After moving to the States in 1990 with her husband, Chris, an American, and their two daughters, Kathleen was extremely homesick. "Writing helped to soothe the hurt in my heart, and soon I was sending off my stories to publishers." Kathleen's first book was "The Giant King", set in Scotland, is about kindness and how you can tame a fierce giant with kindness. But the most important thing about the book is that it is published by a no-profit publisher, the Child Welfare League of America. This publishers doesn't make any money for itself - all the proceeds they make goes to help vulnerable children who've been abused or neglected, suffered family disruption, or a range of other factors that jeopardize their safety, permanence, or well-being, throughout America. Recently CWLA decided to make a CD of the book, narrated by Kathleen, which has won an award from the National Association of Parenting Publications. And Kathleen, as she's always done, uses the little bit of profit she makes from this book to help a children's home in Zimbabwe. "My family and I have been involved with Makumbi Children's Home in Zimbabwe, Africa—a home for AIDS orphans, where one of Kathleen's brothers has worked for the past 25 years." Kathleen's most recent book, just came out, "The Sandal Artist" and is illustrated by Colorado artist, Lois Rosio-Sprague. You can meet Kathleen in person at the Tattered Cover in May 12, 2012, at the Highlands Ranch location and for people who don't know, we will be celebrating Children's Book Week and that afternoon with illustrator Lois Rosio-Sprague Kathleen will officially launch her latest book, The 'Sandal Artist'.

Bill Soards, President, AT&T Colorado & Chairman of the Board, CTA Bill Soards, we're fortunate in Colorado to be at the epicenter
enclosure-voice 1209_ 5/14/12 - Bill Swords serves as Chairman of the Board for Colorado Technology Association, started in 1994 originally called the Colorado Software Association. Over the years, like so many organizations, it's gone through some name changes. But there was a group of entrepreneurs in the early 90s that felt like the software industry in Colorado was really burgeoning and in need of some formal organization and so the Colorado Software Association was born, later they adopted the word Internet into the group as well. And just about a year or so ago, we became known as the Colorado Technology Association. At AT&T, appointed in April of 2009, Soards is responsible for all external affairs for AT&T in the state which includes state and local government relations, community affairs, regulatory and legislative activities, and initiatives before the Colorado General Assembly and Colorado’s Public Utilities Commission. Bill said, "It's interesting, the industry has been around for a long time but the association historically, has been one of networking. You know, it's largely an organization of entrepreneurs, and as these small business people so typically do - they're off running their businesses, trying to make payroll, trying to secure capital, funding for expansion and growth." About two years ago, the Colorado legislature passed a software tax, which didn't apply just to software companies but to all businesses in the state, so that suddenly their software products that they would purchase, would be subject to state sales tax. That kind of woke ‘the sleeping giant’ that is the technology industry in the state. So it became a natural for the association to begin increasing our activity in the public affairs and legislative arena. We found very quickly, there weren't many legislators around the capital that had a really good understanding of technology or all of these companies in their districts that are hiring people, investing and creating jobs. So the first kind of public policy mission of CTA became to repeal that Colorado software tax. ..There's much more, listen now...

Genevieve Thiers, Big Time Solutions for working moms
enclosure-voice 1205_ 5/7/12 - From opera singer to big time solutions for working moms. She needed to make some money but didn't want to wait tables. Studying the business Genevieve Thiers, SitterCity.commodel for, she met her husband who became her number one mentor...Lucy Sanders, the CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology or NCWIT, and Larry Nelson, from interviewed Genevieve Thiers, the founder of Sitter City. Gen was sitting in her college dorm room, senior year, when she saw this 9 month pregnant mother climbing up 200 steps, posting flyers for babysitters. Gen thought to herself that she could create a solution to this problem. Why doesn't someone just take all the caregivers in the city, or the nation for that matter, and put them all in one place where you could easily find them. But more importantly, quickly screen them. So that's what became, America's first and largest network to connect parents with caregivers nationwide. And there are millions of caregivers in five divisions, child care, pet care, senior care, home care and tutoring. She has founded several companies in the Chicago area. Her first company,, is America's first company to take care giving services online, and now has millions of users nationwide, and serves clients like the U.S. Department of Defense, Avon, MasterCard, Monster WW and many others. Her latest company, Contact Karma, is in beta and aims through the use of social recommendation engines to help consumers find the perfect vendor match. Gen's advice to young entrepreneurs just getting started.... "There are no problems, just sticky situations looking for resolutions. Problems can't exist for you if you're an entrepreneur. I mean insurmountable ones; you have to see them as opportunities to solve something. You can't see holes, you have to keep rolling over them and stay focused on your vision." ...There's much more, listen now...

Ray Hutchins, Cyber Security is in a Dismal State
enclosure-voice1207_ 5/7/12 - What is the state of IT Security today? Well Ray Hutchins, founder, Denver Cyber Security, tells us about a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, Ray Hutchins, Denver Cyber SecurityMarch 28th, 2012. Detailing a report issued by the Assistant Director to the FBI, that said in the United States of America, there was not one unclassified network that was secure. Not one unclassified network in the US was secure! That is the state of IT security - it's a dismal state. The basic reason for this is that when the Internet was designed by DARPA, they were not thinking about security, so it was not engineered into the process. And today it is just woefully insecure. Currently as we speak, DARPA is designing a secure network and starting up, it will be for the use of the Pentagon and security agencies, federal and state governments. But, for the rest of us, we have to cope with an unsecured internet for many more years. Ray said, "At Denver Cyber Security, our job is to help companies secure their networks. It is expensive and difficult to fully 100% secure a network - very difficult. And, if you have an opponent, somebody out there, absolutely targeting you, if they have sophisticated means at their disposal, it would be very difficult for you to stop them. Not impossible, if you're in a determined defensive posture. But if you're the average Joe out there, it's a tough play. " Ray tells us the best steps include taking care of the 'low hanging fruit', working to handle the easy and fast to solve. Most of the attacks going out on the Internet come from automated tools, bots looking for soft spots, looking to attack vulnerable computers - looking for social security numbers and credit card numbers and other sensitive information - that's what they're looking to pluck. That kind of thing can be defended against, sometimes for no or little cost, if you use your common sense. The next challenge we wanted to ask Ray about was the glut of spam that we all encounter with email each day. Ray tells us the biggest single thing is that you never, never, never click on a link in an email - NEVER! Listen to this interview for more information and remember to follow the simple steps recommended by Ray Hutchins. A cyber security attack is painful - a very real violation that can take years to deal with - and likely never be resolved to your satisfaction...
