Sometimes the best way to start is to just get a job in the direction of your dreams, this is also a useful session if you just want to find a good job fast, and your open to helping others being the best way to help yourself.
Then, to help you get started yourself, help your local chamber or other group start a face-to-face IDEA Café Startup Workshop or Franklin Circle as part of what they offer their members. We will help you for free, if you want our help.
We are about to do an outreach campaign to local chambers and other groups, we expect to need people like you to lead new groups in cooperation with them across Colorado and beyond. Attending this online workshop or one of the face-to-face workshops is the first step towards becoming an IDEA Café leader.
