Denver Bloggers Club Jenny Finke

SQS020: Denver Bloggers Club with Jenny Finke

One of the communities that I absolutely love is the Denver Bloggers Club. As a long-time blogger, sometimes you just need to spend time with people who actually “get” what you’re doing. Because, blogging is not as common as one would think. In Denver, the Denver Bloggers Club has become my “home away from home” where I can seriously discuss whatever issues or concerns that I may have growing my blogging projects.

10 Amazing Denver Communities to Join

 

  • House of Pod-This co-working just opened a week or so ago. It’s a co-working space for podcasters. This is a brilliant idea and the business model looks solid. I can’t wait to go check it out.

 

  • Women of Denver-This group is for entrepreneurial women in Denver. Krystal Covington has created an incredible community to nurture and grow female entrepreneurs.

 

  • Denver Boss Babes-One of my favorite groups on the list! Roxy Barnes and Chelsea Blankenship created this community and I love it. The ladies are fun loving, hard-working, and share their wisdom freely.  Check out Roxy’s podcast interview HERE.

 

 

  • The Commons on Champa-Recently, I shared a podcast interview that I recorded with Jesse Shuler, Community Manager at the Commons. This is a fantastic resource for startup entrepreneurs in Denver.

The Commons on Champa

SQS016: Jesse Shuler-The Commons on Champa

I’m not sure when I first heard of The Commons on Champa, a welcoming space for entrepreneurs in the process of starting and nurturing their new businesses. As a personal finance blogger (that’s my other project) I was intrigued and thrilled about the idea of a free co-working space. Fortunately for the City of Denver and the entrepreneurial community-The Commons on Champa is so much more than a “free co-working space.”

Jesse Shuler: The Commons on Champa

One of topics that I’m very interested in is the idea of community and community building. With that in mind, I knew that I had to speak with Jesse Shuler, Community Manager of the Commons. In addition to being a great guy, he and Jacqui Dietrich (Manager of the Commons) do an incredible job of coordinator a vast variety of resources and connections for local startups.
