SQS027: Happy City Denver

One of the most exciting developments in Denver is the growth of its art scene. Even though the threat of unaffordable housing looms heavily on the community, the citizens of Denver are still about to connect with amazing, accessible, and free public art.

Networking in Denver

SQS026: Networking in Denver with Amy Herman

One of the most challenging parts about life (and moving to a new city) is making and sustaining new connections. I love meeting new people and have never met a stranger. But, when you’re living in a city like Denver that is constantly changing and constantly welcoming new residents all the time it’s good to ask…how do you meet people and make authentic connections. So, I thought I would speak with Amy Herman who is an incredible networking in Denver about this topic. She also happens to be a super nice person as well.
