Green Spaces Named One Of 13 Inspiring Coworking Spaces by Dwell

Dwell recently posted their picks for inspiring coworking spaces around the world and we are happy to say Green Spaces Colorado has made the list.  From the article: "This solar-powered coworking space in Denver's arts district is literally a breath of fresh air, and not just because the plethora of reclaimed wood planters between desks freshens the environment.

Meet a Green Spaces Member: Adam Chandler

Adam Chandler

Like most people in 2008 Adam found himself out of work after he had just moved across country from Vermont to Fort Collins, Colorado. In the face of this adversity Adam did the only logical thing he could think of, he became an entrepreneur. It’s been 6 years now since he started his business New World Global Marketing and for the past 9 months he’s had the pleasure of calling Green Spaces his home.

Adam’s business deals with direct response marketing; provides business’s nation wide with instructional material for Internet marketing. Now you may be asking how is direct response marketing a green business? Well all the products Adam sells are digital that means no shipping cost, no paper usage, no fuel costs, and he teaches others around the country how to do the same.

So we asked Adam what he liked so much about Green Spaces? “As a home business owner working exclusively from home can be challenging distracting and unproductive. Green Spaces gives a new environment to work in which helps increase productivity and effectiveness.  Also, Green Spaces provides an amazing opportunity to network and meet other local businesses to form new partnerships with”-Adam Chandler.

In his free time Adam enjoys going to concerts, camping, hiking, and snowboarding. When asked if he like bacon his response was, “doesn’t everybody like bacon?” If you want to learn more about Adams journey from rags to riches (or nicer rags) check out his website www.MeetAdamChandler.com.

 

Crucial Litmus Test for Every Entrepreneur

We all know ideas are a dime a dozen. So how do you know if your idea is worth pursuing? My b-school friends say that a good vetting question is, “Does your idea solve a pain?” I completely agree but, as an entrepreneur who wants to change the world, I need much more than Advil.

Meet Green Spaces' latest Fireside Chat speaker, Paul Polizzotto, Innovator and Social Entrepreneur

 

 

Paul Polizzotto, Founder and President of CBS EcoMedia, has built a very successful career by discovering and developing great ideas.  In the process, he’s developed a 4-question litmus test that can help entrepreneurs evaluate the mettle, and the promise, of their latest business propositions.

Paul grew up in Southern California in the late 70s and early 80s, and spent much of his time surfing in the polluted waters of Santa Monica Bay. As a result, he suffered from chronic upper respiratory infections, sore throats, and cuts that wouldn’t heal.

He realized that one source of the toxins was the contract cleaning industry. Operating illegally, contractors cleaned parking lots and industrial sites, disposing of the run-off and detergents in the storm drain system, thereby contaminating the river and ocean waters into which they feed.

What to Know about B Corporation Certification

Walk the TalkB Corp status--granted by B Lab, a Wayne, Pa., nonprofit--has become a badge of honor for more than 750 socially and environmentally conscious businesses since 2007. Some of the bigger names to nab the certification include Ben & Jerry's, Patagonia, Etsy, Warby Parker and New Belgium Brewing.
