Living in a World with Entrepreneurs: How Passion & Innovation can make an Impact!

Entrepreneurs are spread across the globe, with the same ideals and goals to improve different aspects of the world. We are fortunate enough to be located in a entrepreneurial hub in Boulder, Colorado where the town is buzzing with small businesses & startups. There is a great sense of empowerment being surrounded by the spirit, and motivation of other likeminded entrepreneurs.

When we combine the efforts & innovations of all of us, we can make great things happen. Reaching our efforts in all industries everything from technology, education, health, food, media… can reach a larger audience, thus making a bigger IMPACT than we could even begin to realize. Through meet ups, events, panels, and communities we are able to motivate and empower ourselves & others to not only improve different aspects of our lives, but create positive social change.

Social entrepreneurship should be a foundation for all businesses; integrated into our missions and values, as well as an extension to create products & services to benefit the well-being of others and our society overall. Entrepreneurs are leaders. We have the power and innovations to create opportunities and make positive changes. We all have to do our part, and it starts with coming together and recognizing what needs to happen next, what to look forward to on the horizon.

This past month we have focused on social entrepreneurship, gratitude & mindfulness. We celebrated with other entrepreneurs world wide for the annual Global Entrepreneurship Week where hundreds of cities participated in activities, events, etc. that connect self-starters, investors, and like-minded people together to examine policies necessary to promote entrepreneurial growth, and explore new possibilities and exciting opportunities.

Not only were these events happening across the globe, but right here in Boulder. It was the 2nd annual NewCo event held in Boulder that invites the public to the most important founders and entrepreneurs headquarters in this area to talk about topics related to business, growth, cutting edge innovations, work environments, and much more.

Our takeaways:

1. Find your team. It’s important to surround yourself with people that are going to support, motivate & contribute to your company and the goals that you set together.

2. Work closely with your clients. Be transparent and open with the people that you work with. It’s here where you’re able to easily approach and overcome challenges, as well as the chance to create new opportunities for your company.

3. Find your creative inspiration. Find something that allows you to take a step back from your routine & see something in a different way. Whether it’s a place or thing that gives you that feeling, use it when you feel like you need a refresher.

We had a great time getting together with other amazing entrepreneurs in the area. We collaborated to pitch a creative campaign exercise at Godot Communications, chatted with the team at Anthem Branding on their creative style & processes, and joined all the attendees at Shine to celebrate being entrepreneurs. It goes to show when we come together, we can forge new ideas, relationships & make things happen.

This month continues to remind us of the great potential we all possess to create positive changes in the world. When we use our resources and do our part, we are able to empower & motivate others to accomplish high goals, set new standards, and create innovations that will have a huge impact. I believe we will see great changes in the coming future in all areas of our lives.
