Sarah  Schupp, CEO & Founder, UniversityParents Sarah Schupp, aggregating resources so that they're easy to find
enclosure-voice 1367_ 3/18/13 - We are speaking with Sarah Schupp, founder and CEO of UniversityParent. As fate would have it, we first heard of Sarah when we were on the Parents Board at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and Sarah was a bright young student who came to the University with a very good idea and that was the beginning of a successful bootstrapping startup. We've asked Sarah to give our listeners an overview. Basically UniversityParent is the number one destination for college parents to find everything they need to help their students. So it's everything from safe, off-campus student housing to nearby moving and storage facilities, to information on how they can help their student if they're dealing with a challenge on campus. The idea came up because Sarah was an out-of-state student here in Boulder and her parents had all kinds of questions about the local area as well as the university. Not surprisingly their questions were different than those of Sarah's as a student. Almost all of the information the university provided really was directed at the student population and not the parent population. This was crazy - parents are such big stakeholders in the student's education that they really need to be constructively involved and have the right resources available. So Sarah approached the university with "the idea" for a parent guide. They were supportive of the idea the problem was a lack of funding. Sarah's response? "I said, that's great, I'm glad you don't have any money, I'm going to make this into a business." Sarah walked downtown Boulder knocking on doors and asking people to advertise. Parents want to know about the local businesses almost as much as they want to know about the local content. Larry asked, "What resources do you offer to both parents and students?" Sarah replied, "Basically we are aggregating resources so that they're easy to find for families. That's everything from where is the academic advising center on campus; when is tuition due; when is spring break. Some of these questions don't seem to be serious, like when is spring break, but they're important because parents have to book flights and arrange travel." Listen for more...

Dave Leonard the first ever in North America Dave Leonard, Senior Vice President of Data Center Operations, ViaWest
enclosure-voice 1313_ 3/18/13 - As the senior vice president of data center operations, Dave Leonard directs all of ViaWest's day-to-day facility operations and procedures, as well as expansion projects and future data center builds. We're at ViaWest headquarters, to get the skinny on the expansion at this dynamic Colorado icon. Very unique and, another company that launched in 1999 (like and Defrag...) We are talking with Dave Leonard, ViaWest Senior Vice President of Data Center Operations - well known to Frontier, United and Southwest Airlines - as he visits all the ViaWest Data Centers so often. Dave has two separate teams, one that operates the data centers (there are 23 data centers). The second team builds data centers and they are building a new, very large data center in north Las Vegas to compliment their two existing data centers in Las Vegas. So, the expansion is very aggressive and keeps happening throughout our service territory - and coming soon, outside of our service territory. But, Las Vegas is a great example where we are very successful in Las Vegas filling up the existing data centers that we had and demand led us to build a large new data center which will be going online at the end of December. Larry wondered what challenges ViaWest faces in this expansion? "You read about organizations like Facebook and Google building data centers out in the middle of nowhere, where there is very cheap power and very good conditions for free cooling, for instance. We don't site data centers that way. We put data centers where we believe our customers are going to be. There are two things happening in the data center industry, if Dave were wearing his construction hat, that building new data centers have been a good opportunity for ViaWest in two aspects, the green aspect, and the other is the quality of the data centers...

John Mackey, Author, Conscious Capitalism, CEO and Cofounder, WholeFoods Market John Mackey Culture, Strategy and Conscious Capitalism
enclosure-voice 1368_ 3/25/13 - Larry and Patricia Nelson are here at the ACG Denver's 11th Annual, Rocky Mountain Corporate Growth Conference 2013 speaking with John Mackey, CEO and Cofounder of WholeFoods and co-author of Conscious Capitalism. At this year's conference we heard a lot of speakers talking about strategy - we asked John Mackey to give us his take on strategy. He responded, "My theory is that you have to first find your purpose for the business, why you exist. After that you have to ask, How do I create value for our customers? Ultimately it is value creation for the customers that leads the business to flourish. Then we ask the strategy questions. What strategy do we implement that allows us to follow purpose and allow us to create value for our customers and other stakeholders? So I always think strategy follows purpose. So, until you know your purpose and what you're trying to accomplish and what you're trying to do in the world, strategy is not that useful. But once you know that, you're in a position to develop your strategy. There are generic strategies that in general, you have to know; what kind of business you are, you have to understand your competition - and then your strategy is something that will enable you to create value and successfully compete in the marketplace."      On the subject of culture, John said, "Humans create cultures - Cultures are the way humans interact with one another. It's the values, the practices; it's the way we do things around here. Most of the time cultures just kind of develop in an unconscious way." John said, "One of the things we talk about in the book is that you don't want your culture to be unconscious. It's one of the most important things in your business so you need to take responsibility for it as a leader. And, ask what parts of your culture are serving this business well and which parts are dysfunctional? Which parts are toxic, because you have bad culture as well? If you can see the culture and understand it, you can begin to try to change it and evolve it." Some of the most important things that Mackey does is to always think about their purpose and how to better serve it. "But, I also think about our culture and ask, what is it about our culture that really needs to change? Which part of our culture is limiting our potential? Which part of our culture might have served a good purpose two years ago and now is simply out of date? The way we did things ten years ago are not useful and are not the best way we should be doing things today. So, cultures need to evolve and too often in too many companies, cultures do not evolve. Or, they may evolve but not in a constructive way - they may be evolving in a dysfunctional or destructive way."
      Larry asked, "In the 38 states that you're in, is the culture in all stores the same?” John replied, "Actually no they are not. WholeFoods, because we decentralize and empower, there are certain cultural elements that you could say are everywhere in WholeFoods Market - We have the same mission statement, we have the same philosophy about our business, we have a lot of the same compensation systems. So we have a lot of the structural elements, but the cultures are different because the cultures around the United States are different. Truthfully the Midwest is different than New York City which is different than Los Angeles and different from New Orleans or Florida - so these regional differences, when I travel around I'm so sensitized to how that store feels... I can feel the energy at the store, I can feel whether the team members, for example, are happy, and they're definitely unique cultures and yet they will all be recognizable as WholeFoods Market. So it's the paradox that we're unique individuals and yet we're also members of communities. So that in a healthy situation we have autonomy as individuals and yet we are members of communities and we serve those communities on a voluntary basis."
John said, "Many of the most creative ideas come from young people because they don't know yet what they can't do. We begin to limit our creativity as we age, and we begin to think we know things that we may not know at all. It takes young fresh eyes, in a way, to relook at things. It's just like if you write something, you may not see the typos that are there. You read it over and over and you just don't see it - you give it to someone else and they can pick it out. Well, our larger American culture is like that. We've all been living in it so long it just all seems perfectly normal and it's just the way it works, that's the way the real world is. So as you go through the aging process we begin to settle - we just get comfortable. But young people they don't know that stuff yet. That's got good things and bad things about it. The bad thing is they might destroy all the good things too. But essentially, evolution and progress generally comes up from young people who have those fresh eyes and who create and they're idealists. They see the things that are wrong in the world and they say, 'this shouldn't be, I want to change it. So they put their creative energies in that area and progress results. I think the United States has some very unique problems and challenges right now that I'm not sure my generation [baby boomers] is going to be able to solve. I think we will solve them collectively, I just think that it'll be younger people who don't yet know what they can't do - that are going to come up with the creative solutions to a lot of our problems. We have always put our hope in our young - that's what happens. People age and they die and youthful people come along and the culture is extended. You extend the culture and yet the culture is not stagnant because youthful people come in with different experiences, different views.
      Technology is evolving rapidly - the children today have only known computers. When I was a little boy, television was catching on - three channels in black and white. The computer was something IBM had in a huge room somewhere, with things to cool it down. Now computers are everywhere, the Internet is everywhere and young people are so networked together. So I have great hope in the creative powers of youthful people to help our culture continue to evolve."
      WholeFoods has about 350 stores, in 38 states and 3 countries today. Since publishing their book, Conscious Capitalism, in January of this year, John and his co-author Rajendra Sisodia have been on a book tour and only been home a few days since. John lives in Austin but he and his wife have owned a home in Boulder since 1999.

Kourtney Nelson, Dean, Alandi Ayurveda Gurukula Kourtney Nelson - Alandi Ayurveda, solutions to healthcare crisis
enclosure-voice 1366_ 3/18/13 - We've been discussing some of the issues with our healthcare system, one of which is the shortage of doctors, and ballooning healthcare costs. We are talking with Kourtney Nelson, Dean of Alandi Ayurveda, a school in Boulder. In a brief overview Kourtney tells us, Ayurveda, "is a holistic medicine developed in India 5000 years ago. It's a full medical practice. Ayurveda looks at the root cause of disease and imbalance in the body instead of just treating conditions. That's a different mind-set. Western medicine doesn't look at a disease until it's in a pathological state. Holistic medicine looks at it as you're coming out of balance, several stages before it comes into a pathological range. So we're looking for optimal wellness - vs. being below a pathological marker. We'll interpret blood tests differently and catch things at an earlier stage and help to work on them - or help to reverse or minimize the damage of a chronic condition. Alandi Ayurveda is the first school in the U.S. that offers a four year advanced level training. Once the national standards have been established for practice level and the national exams for practitioners ar established, the graduates of our program will qualify to be Ayurvedic Doctors - so they'll be the first Ayurvedic Doctors in the U.S. that have been trained here. It is really exciting, to be able to build our school and to increase the number of well trained Ayurvedic physicians out there. That way we can also expand our offering such as clinic in the community and some of the modalities. Currently we do have a clinic at our school and we offer a sliding scale. So we're able to see lots of different people from all ends of the economic spectrum - which is one way we can give back to the community. We'd like to expand that and give more and also be able to provide other classes to the community like cooking classes, simple kitchen herbs and other things people can use to take care of their health. Kourtney believes that western / allopathic medicine and alternative medicine, such as Ayurveda work well together and believes this will be the future of medicine for our country. It's a matter of having a bigger tool box and knowing when you need the hammer or the chisel - they both operate very differently. Having more access and more well trained Ayurvedic physicians, and other modalities, providing more preventative care options, will help decrease the shortage of doctors we're seeing now and also decrease the national cost of healthcare. The Alandi Ayurveda Gurukula is raising money to expand the school, looking for a new location and to establish a larger presence in the community.

Leonard Nimoy and Star Trek come to Colorado
Leonard Nimoy, Recipient of the 2010 douglas S. 
           Morrow Public Outreach Award and Larry Nelson, enclosure-voice 832_ 4/26/10 - At the 26th National Space Symposium, Larry and Pat had an opportunity to have a discussion with Leonard Nimoy of Star Trek fame. But Nimoy is so much more than that. They decided to talk about other topics that help us learn more about him and what has shaped his character over the past 79 years as well as understanding his hot buttons. We started out by reflecting on some poetry Leonard read as 'whale song' was heard in the background...that was decades ago but it opened up insights to his current interests and concerns. When asked, Is there something businesses can do to motivate children?" His reply was an ouch. "I'm not a sociologist, I'm not a businessman, I can't speak intelligently about that. I'll tell you what I am concerned about; I'm concerned about how much television kids watch that is not uplifting, or educational or inspiring in any way. It's all about celebrity, and if you're celebrity, come and tell us about your celebrity. What have you accomplished? I'm a celebrity - I'm famous for having a lot of children, so I want a TV show - It's crazy. What we have descended to in our education, it's crazy! It's really sad, I could go on about that, I'm not going to." He had a great deal to say about advice he would give to someone following his career path. "The biggest fantasy, myth about my work, about being an actor is people who think a look will get you somewhere, be at the right place and time, that kind of thing - luck plays a big role, but I never believed that, not even as a teenager ...Education, it's all about education. Learn, learn, learn and devote yourself to a profession. Be professional about it." Larry asked, "Do you feel the U.S. is losing its position in terms of space?" Leonard replied, "Yes, I don't know to what degree this is true. I don't want to be an alarmist about this, but I do think we've got some work to do." We did end with a Vulcan salute. Listen for much, much more...
