Getting together with other people who like thinking outside the box. That's why I've facilitated IDEA Cafes since 1994, I really enjoy and benefit from the meetings myself!

Movies: Crimson Tide, There Will Be Blood, Get Low, The Fighter, John Carter, Seven Days in Utopia, The Help, Hope Springs, Lawless, Melancholia,
Yes, I've been doing it for nearly 20 years. :) Hope to get others involved over the next few months, and to pass the torch to a new board and staff in the next two or three years. I'm the temporary CEO until we can get this done.
I started it, thought of the idea taking a walk along the highline canal nearly 20 years ago. I still remember that Aha! moment.
Hi John, Welcome to the Tuesday Modern-Day Meditation class Meetup! I look forward to seeing and meeting you soon!
Really enjoyed speaking at the Small Business Chamber recently! Congratulations on the Ben Franklin event, this looks to be very informative and enjoyable. I don't think we can attend, our own CEO Space events are on Thursdays. We are so excited to see this coming together to support small business!!! Rodney & Kimberly Lindsey, CEO Space of the Rockies
