John Hughes, President, Rotary Club of Denver Southeast Over half of Colorado's population, 58% is overweight or obese
enclosure-voice 1492_ 1/27/14 - Rotary Clubs official motto "Service Above Self" is a breath of fresh air in the healthcare mix. We are speaking with John Hughes, President of the Rotary Club of Denver Southeast, here at the 7th Annual State of the State Reception hosted at the Governor's Residence. Joining us is Gabriel Guillaume, Interim President/CEO of LiveWell Colorado a relatively new organization, formed in 2009. Live Well Colorado is working to create opportunities for healthy eating and active living in the state of Colorado as a means to reducing and preventing obesity. We all know obesity is a big issue across the country and while many think it's not as much of an issue here in Colorado - the leanest adults... The reality is over half of our population (58%) is overweight or obese, and that we are in the top states to have a very fast growing rate of child obesity. So while we have the leanest adults in the country, that's not true of our youth. So we have a good idea of where we are heading if we don't address this problem now and a systemic manner. "By that", Gabriel said, "It's not just about programs. It's about effective partnerships that can move potential policy forward, that can change, improve the environments around us so that healthy eating and active living behaviors aren't just the option for some, but the default opportunity for everyone in our state." Hughes pointed out that they have a unique opportunity in this event by bringing together the governmental representatives, state legislators, Governor Hickenlooper, the attorney general and the treasury secretary for Colorado, who have the legislative and administrative responsibilities when it comes to healthcare.

Sam said, "We have really seen a lot of companies and communities come out and support these businesses - highlight them, recognize them - so the program has grown to quite a prestigious honor. This year alone we had a wonderful geographical diversity across the state of Colorado. We had companies from rural and urban communities - communities that we haven't seen on stage before.

Financial Executives of Colorado (FEI) - 1/16/2014

Overcoming the shortage of top coder talent
enclosure-voice 1487_ 1/13/14 - Here at Galvanize, we're talking with Gary Gaessler of Gary Gaessler, Cloud Elements  & Sofia Stolberg, founder, Piloto 151Cloud Elements a cloud integration service, about a program addressing the shortage of talent in the technology community. Gary tells us, "We've extended an internship exchange program with our friends in Puerto Rico, who Gary met last summer at the Founder Institute, along with Sofia Stolberg, the founder of Piloto 151 a Galvanize-like incubator in Puerto Rico.
Antonio Tapia & Christian Rodriguez, Codetrotters, University of Puerto Rico
We actually have two top developers from the University of Puerto Rico joining Cloud Elements for fourteen days, Antonio Tapia and Christian Rodriguez." There is a need for this program, the idea of Cloud Elements CEO, Mark Geene, when Gary was in Puerto Rico this past summer. Sofia ran with the idea - she has actually launched a venture called 'Codetrotters'. Codetrotters is seeking to help startups like Cloud Elements hire top coder talent from under-tapped global talent pools, including Puerto Rico. "On a side note as well, we seek to develop underdeveloped entrepreneurship ecosystems and help strengthen them. So the exchange part of the program is that Cloud Elements has top interns / top coders coming into their company for a period of two weeks during the winter break and then again in the summer. In exchange for those interns, they give back to the ecosystem in Puerto Rico. In the end if Cloud Elements decides to hire the interns Piloto 151 does collect a recruitment fee, but it is 50% lower than the market standard. Part of that 50% discount is that they come back and give to our entrepreneurship ecosystem", Sofia said. . With the shortage of 'top coding talent'... listen to Gary, Sofia, Antonio and Christian for more insights...

Financial challenges, Big GAAP and Little GAAP
Courtney Cowgill, Greg Anton & Chris Pelley, FEI January Dinner Programenclosure-voice 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....

A partnership to create a shift in culture
Gabriel Guillaume, Interim President & CEO, LiveWell Coloradoenclosure-voice 1493_ 1/27/14 - "Working on the issue of obesity, we all have to understand, we have, and have had for quite some time, a culture that is on the move, is looking to have quick and often, unfortunately, unhealthy food," said Gabriel Guillaume, Interim President and CEO, LiveWell Colorado. "I think we are a culture that hasn't had a tremendous amount of opportunity to be physically active of late, given the way in which our workforce has transitioned and in the way we live our lives and even the way schools are operating now days. I think what LiveWell is trying to do in partnership with so many organizations, including the Rotary, is to create a shift in culture. Get people to be thinking about how we get back to a time where physical activity is considered an educational opportunity and not just a recreational piece. Where food is still convenient but, something we take the time to engage in and participate in. Also that we understand this state, which is an incredible state, has a tradition of health. How do we leverage that, to turn back this tide of unhealthy behavior that we've been engaging in for the past couple of generations. I also want to add, this partnership with Rotary is just beginning to evolve and really excited about it. LiveWell Colorado is structured in a way that aligns very nicely with Rotary. We have communities across the state, that we are funding, that are forming local coalitions, some neighborhoods, cities, counties - but they're doing work locally on the ground. Rotary has a great appreciation for local effort, for people that come together and address issues that matter to them in their community. LiveWell wants... Listen for more...Part 2 of 2

Goal Planning & Strategic Planning Critically Important
Gregery Anton, Anton Collins Mitchell LLCLarry Nelson, Founder, w3w3® Media Networkenclosure-voice 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...
