What Participant’s are Saying:
“I have a number of business-improvement goals on my list this year, and self-help books can be one of the best resources for guidance. But I don’t love to read them. So I was excited to learn about the EntrepreNerds group in Fort Collins…
Within minutes of beginning, we were having a mind-expanding discussion about aha moments in business and new strategies to consider that were gleaned from our readings. With a range of business backgrounds…the insights covered many perspectives. Best of all, rather than kicking myself for not reading a hefty stack of business-improvement books, I felt pleased that I’d found a way to read just one, yet get the benefit of five. Eureka!”
“EntrepreNerds! I call it my business book club. Ariana Friedlander with Rosabella Consulting, moderates and the rest of us talk and learn. I do ask myself how I ended up in such a group, because really what I love are flowers. Growing the flowers is easy; it’s the selling part that doesn’t come naturally. Being an entrepreneur had never crossed my mind, but with the great books to read, the discussions, and most importantly the gentle nudges to set goals and follow through, I have become a real business. Recently I doubled my clients based on acting on one of my goals. Now I will deliver 70+ bouquets a week. Who would have imagined!
-Sheila Balloffet, Waverly Road Farm, Fort Collins
“I joined EntrepreNerds because I thought it was a great idea to have a book club for business books. It is hard to take the time to read these books on my own. EntrepreNerds provides the incentive to read the book, and then we have great discussions. It is wonderful to hear other people’s business experiences and take away ideas for my own.
Ariana runs a great discussion and provides a worksheet to help us achieve our goals from the book. This is the piece I like the best about EntrepreNerds – I actually have a plan coming out of the meeting to incorporate the great ideas from any one book we have read.”
- Kim Nelson, Kimball Nelson Photography
“Participating in EntrepreNerds has been great! The books we’re reading are not only interesting, they also provide valuable and practical business advice. Participating in the discussions inspires me to implement recommendations that have improved my productivity and effectiveness at work. And I have been able to bring back fresh, new ideas to our team.”
- Becca Walkinshaw, GSI
“What I enjoy about participating in EntrepreNerds, is Ariana’s carefully selected reading list. Using older and current titles, all provide opportunities for personal and professional growth. She has wisely chosen author’s who deliver important messages using everyday examples, language, and common sense. Her ability to facilitate connections between book passages and participants thoughts and life experiences is quite enjoyable. EntrepreNerds is well worth the time, I recommend the group to anyone interested in introspection and professional enrichment.”
