Entrepreneurship from Belfast to Belize
1644_ 12/8/14 -
The country and company Susan Morrice is most well known in is Belize. She is the founder and chair of Belize Natural Energy. But also, here in Denver, as the original investor with founder Josh Stewart of XJet, the private jet company. Larry Nelson, w3w3.com, asked Susan what was next for her, she replied, "What I really want to do is to teach people the key educational steps, it's not a secret, behind everyone being as successful as they want to be. To follow their own dreams. The first key is to know yourself! Really get to know how you work. Not the clutter of baggage, not the expectations, but get to know yourself so you can self express in the area that makes you thrive, successful at the business of living." Susan credits Educo, a program she attended 12 years ago, for providing the keys to her success. Today she says, "I don't need more jets, I have enough oil. Now I want to help others to attain their success."

Back in 2006 Garrett Bussiere was a professional athlete. It was his first year playing pro ball with the St. Louis Cardinals and he ended up sustaining a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and that was actually the last game he played in - July of 2006. He had a head injury and that was the end of his career and a very trying time in his life. Garrett was both a professional athlete and simultaneously finishing his undergraduate degree at Berkeley. What he found after the injury when he returned to Berkeley was that he could no longer concentrate, he had difficulty with his classes and he saw a lot of his life diminish to the point where he had to join the Disabled Students Union to get some academic help to get him through. It was very difficult and Garrett said, "I just felt like there was this heavy weight placed on my shoulders that I was trying to alleviate. I had a mild traumatic brain injury that changed my life." From this point Garrett endured lingering symptoms and did what most people with this injury do - he went to specialists, you see neurologists, neuropsychologists, brain scans, he did all of it. But, "I wasn't getting good answers. I was told I needed this medication or that medication and rest." For Garrett, he just couldn't swallow the fact that at 20 years old he had to be on three different medications. He began exploring other options, things like nutritional neuroscience, exercise physiology, stress management and other options that related to enhancing cognition and expediting the rate of recovery. Garrett went on to write a book, The Concussion Healing Solution, Clarity Amid the Confusion. Today, Garrett is the Marketing & Research Manager at, CereScan Corp...

Swinburn has been in the global beer industry for more than 30 years and has held various senior roles in marketing, retail management and sales.

Chris Pelley has been on the board of ACG Denver for the past eight years and they've been kind enough to help Chris and CIMCO Private Wealth, sponsor the whole notion around Social Enterprise, this year was our sixth annual event. Bud Ahearn helped with that two day event featuring Connie Duckworth, CEO of ARZU Carpets, held Monday, at CU, CSU, and DU Women's College Tuesday morning and then the ACG 6th Annual lunch. General Joseph A 'Bud' Ahearn has worked with Chris for six years to help promote the notion around social enterprise. Bud said, "To start let me tell you about the sponsor of the program, Chris Pelley. Actually his mission in life is to transform private wealth into community wealth, to global wealth. We see that at work in his day-to-day actions and constant sponsorship of social entrepreneurship. One must have the prerequisites in place with wealth that then this notion of making it multiply is the humanity that brings us together. Connie Duckworth, the former managing partner of Goldman Sachs was here. She's taken on a powerful leadership role for women in the U.S. to deploy to the developing world, which makes up 99% of our globe, to get out and show women of the world how to create real value for their families, communities and their country. Connie is an authentic leader who grew up in a very tough, male dominated financial world. Connie is slight in stature but extremely strong in character." Bud tells us that Connie is committed to a sense of service to her family, her community and to women. This isn't a dream but an experiential hands-on the creation and fulfillment of hope for women. Today she's got 700 women in Afghanistan out of huddled masses and out weaving today and leveraging a remarkable brand of Afghani carpet making. Listen for more about this fascinating interview....

Supporting our veterans & active duty personnel
1396_ 6/17/13 - A day of thanks for the service and sacrifice of our veterans & active duty personnel to enjoy with family & friends!
We recognize the integral role military families serve as they provide unwavering support for the men and women who protect our freedom. They inspire our service members and bring life into our military communities. They are strong, caring and resilient. They don’t always wear a uniform but their service to our nation is selfless. FAMILY FUN DAY was held on the Streets at South Glenn in front of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce. Larry and Pat really enjoyed the event and talked with a number of people including ‘heavy hitters’. A very special band, the Bluzinators entertained the audience. CIMCO Cares (Private Wealth) believes in ‘Giving Back’ and supporting the community. CIMCO set up and coordinated the entire event with Chris Pelley, CEO and Mona McDonnell, Director of Marketing and Biz Dev along with other CIMCO people.

Billions of dollars to help higher education 1444_ 9/30/13 - Larry and Pat were invited to an up-scale event at the Innovation Pavilion by Christopher Pelley, CEO and Private Wealth Advisor of CIMCO Cares. After the eye-opening meeting, they had a chance to interview the keynote speaker, Karan Khemka, Partner, The Parthenon Group, which is a management consultancy - but a big part of their work is in the education sector. Education institutions, whether it's Harvard University or a private school, in the end they function like companies. Larry asked about the U.S. comparison to other countries. Karan tells us, in the U.S. 4% of college/university students are international students, compared to the U.K. which is at 17% and Australia at 28%. This begs the question, why would the U.S. say that this is the correct or acceptable penetration of international students when the U.K. and Australia have maintained very high quality higher education systems with far higher levels of international student penetration. If the U.S. were to double the international student population to 8% that would be an additional 700,000 students, and not all of these would be full fee paying, but let's say half-a-million were full fee paying, and they were coming in at $25-$30,000 a student - that is an incredible amount of revenue - billions of dollars to help balance the books of higher education. To put money into research, funding and scholarships. So there is an incredible opportunity to do good while serving international demand for one of the most desirable products the U.S. has. Your higher education is really the crown jewel amongst the products you can sell to the rest of the world. Listen for much more...

News Flash: from Wealth Management Sector 1646_ 12/8/14 - News from Chris Pelley at ACG Denver luncheon - we learned that CIMCO Private Wealth has been acquired by RBC, the Royal Bank of Canada. Larry, w3w3® Media Network, was interviewing Chris at the Business and Social Enterprise Event which was founded and sponsored by CIMCO.

Human beings learn by modeling and as our old mentor, Benjamin Franklin observed, 'Do well by doing good.' And the whole notion is as we have good role models in the corporate world who believe in an entire holistic system, it will spread good news for many people.

Colorado impacting global food movement 1549_ 5/19/14 - We interviewed Krista Roberts, the Director of Slow Food Denver, a local chapter representing a global food movement called 'Slow Food'. It started in Italy initially as a reaction to the fact that a fast foods hamburger stand was being constructed at the foot of the Spanish Steps in Rome. But it has evolved a lot since then and is founded on the premise that everyone should have access to food that is good, clean and fair. There are chapters all over the world and we are one of the most active in the United States. In the Denver community, they have two main areas of programming. The 'Seed to Table School Food' program works directly with schools educating children about where their food comes from, how to cook and just the pleasure of enjoying good food. They also support about 50 school garden programs. The other area of work they do is their Community Table Programming. Here they do a lot of outreach and education to the general public helping connect them with local food producers, farmers, ranchers - getting more information about their food and building community through all these outlets. Coming in June, and this is a first of its kind, Slow Meat will focus on meat - and we're excited that it's in Denver - this is the first hosted in the United States! The idea is to gather a group of people who are all involved with meat in some way - ranchers, processors, chefs, consumers - to really consider meat and how we can create a more sustainable meat system in our country...

A real boost to sustainability in Colorado and beyond
1532_ 4/14/14 -
We asked Cliff Young, Associate Dean in the Dean's Office at UC Denver Business School about managing for sustainability. "The history of managing for sustainability was actually somewhat industry driven." The first of these classes started back in 2007-08 and has grown to where UC Denver currently has 12 different classes teaching sustainability and three specializations, internally here at the business school. They're all graduate specializations, so if a student takes any four of these classes, that student gets a specialization either in their MBA or a Masters of Science & Management. Or if the student took three classes associated with the Masters of Science & Marketing you would get a specialization and with that you can get a Certificate in Sustainability. Cliff said, "The most recent accomplishment at UC Denver is bringing Graham Russell on board as the Ambassador for Managing for Sustainability." Larry has known Graham Russell for a number of years, "and he has done some phenomenal work in this area - it's really neat to see you with this great organization, but how did you get involved and what's your role?" Graham tells us when he was running CORE (the sustainable business association - Denver), he was privileged to get to know the UC Denver faculty. Graham left CORE in 2010 and was invited to teach here at UC Denver and has taught two or three courses over the past few years. He's also been instrumental in building relationships between the business school and the local business community. Graham also chairs the Advisory Council on Sustainability, and they've been very successful in building relationships with many of the larger companies in this part of the world.

1491_ 1/27/14 -
It is technical and critical... Larry and Pat attended the Financial Executives International (FEI Colorado) monthly chapter meeting and interviewed the keynote speaker Greg Anton who is a founding partner of Anton Collins Mitchell LLP, (ACM) a Denver, Colorado based CPA firm. Greg was speaking about financial reporting for private companies and talked about two elements of business reporting. One, FASB the Financial Accounting Standards Board producing differential standards for private companies that are GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) based. We also talked about how there are 29 million private companies in the United States and 15,000 public companies in the US. And how the financial reporting rules really are written for the 15,000 public companies. So when we have to produce GAAP based financial statements, the private company has to follow the public company rules. So the Private Company Council over at FASB is creating some small nuances and changes in the standards that are allowable for the private company to follow and still be in compliance with GAAP. In addition the AICPA has created a financial reporting framework for small businesses that don't need to produce GAAP based financial statements but they want to produce accurate reliable financial information for the managers of the business, for the business owners, the investors as well as for lenders that might lend money to the business where the active financial report information is produced in an accurate, reliable and consistent way. So the financial reporting framework itself, creates substantial changes in financial reporting and it really marries some of the GAAP principles and some of the Tax Principles on a simplified basis to create a financial reporting framework that is relevant and useful for a small private business. Really Main Street type of accounting versus Wall Street... Listen for more....

Goal Planning & Strategic Planning Critically Important
1489_ 1/20/14 -
STORY: Larry and Pat attended the Financial Executives International (FEI Colorado) monthly chapter meeting and interviewed the keynote speaker Greg Anton who is a founding partner of Anton Collins Mitchell LLP, (ACM) a Denver, Colorado based CPA firm with offices in Boulder, Denver and Greeley. Larry asked Greg what advice he would give entrepreneurs. "Ultimately financial reporting and accounting is the language of business. If you don't have some reference or some general idea of the language of business, it's really difficult to manage that business. If you don't understand how to read financial information, you really can't run the business... So you must have a general understanding - you don't, obviously, have to be an accountant to be a business owner." Greg said. "The reality is that most business owners we talk to need a keen understanding of the cost structure, the cost of their product, the cost of their service, what's the right price point in the marketplace, how do they create sales initiatives that pay for themselves." Greg also explained that he tells folks he deals with that it's really important to do goal planning and strategic planning around where you are going. He said, "I view it as you've got to have a daily plan for the things that have to be accomplished that day, that are critically important. You've got to have a strategic plan that looks out one, two, three years. And, you have to have a wide term plan that looks out into the horizon. If you don't have a vision of where your business is going to go - it's impossible to get from today to the future without that. Successful entrepreneurs have the vision of what they can do ...Listen for more...

Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics 1421_ 8/19/13 - Larry interviewed Francy Milner, the Associate Director for Campus and Community Partnerships at Leeds School of Business, University of Colorado Boulder - she has some great and exciting news for Boulder. She has been teaching in the area of social responsibility and social entrepreneurship at the university for the past eight years, starting out with Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics. Francy is also part of a center here called, Center for Education on Social Responsibility at the Leeds School of business. A few years ago, Francy created an undergraduate course (and then a graduate course) in social entrepreneurship. Francy points out, "What's the difference? Most people don't know. Social Responsibility is the company taking into account all of their shareholders, consumers and employees and the environment, etc. Showing responsibility more broadly. When we talk about Social Entrepreneurship, it's people who found an enterprise with a social or environmental mission. A purpose to do good. It might be to provide clean water - or access to credit in developing countries for people who don't have that access. Francy is also teaching outside the business school, in the ATLAS Program... and she will continue that. Francy said, "There's a new incubator for students who want to launch their own social ventures, it's called Watson University." Listen for more on this exciting news.

Electronics recycling has been largely unregulated 1508_ 3/3/14 - Larry is interviewing Creighton Bildstein, President of Urban Mining2, North American Technology Exchange’s Material Acquisition, Sales and Marketing subsidiary. Prior to this undertaking, he was a co-founder, co-owner and principal in an asset management and disposition company located in Denver, CO for 11 years in which he personally secured numerous contracts with Fortune 500 companies. As you probably are aware, there is a Colorado law, passed last year whereby residences and businesses are not allowed to throw electronics in the trash, it has to be brought into recycling. Back in the late 90s, Unicor a federally owned entity provided prison labor for electronic recycling to private industry - manufacturing and services. Basically prisoners taking apart cameras etc., which contained lead, arsenic cadmium, mercury, silicon... this is really bad stuff. Breaking these electronic devices with hammers created lots of toxic dust. About five years into the project, prisoners, guards and their families started coming down with heavy metals related illnesses, resulting in lawsuits against Unicor. Now they are looking to private industry, the manufacturers of electronics, who really don't tell you what's in their products. Most of Creighton's efforts have involved working with C-level executives within the telecom, data center and cable TV industries finding ways to help them maximize the value of their end-of-life electronic assets. His success comes from creating strategies and solutions to complex problems...Listen for more ideas...
