For bodacious womenpreneurs who want to make more money and have more fun!

1 Million Cups

1MC IconEntrepreneurially (and I’m not sure if that’s a real word or one I just made up!), Kansas City has it GOIN’ ON right now!  Every Wednesday morning, entrepreneurs from across the area gather for 1 Million Cups, sponsored by Kauffman Labs and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. It’s an incredible group of entrepreneurs, advisors and mentors.  Participants are encouraged to leave their agendas by the door and ask the question of others — “What can I do to help you grow your business?”  The group celebrated it’s first year birthday yesterday.  Last year at this time 12 souls gathered to kick off this networking adventure.  Yesterday, there were almost 200 in the room!  The leadership of 1 Million Cups has done a stellar job in creating an atmosphere of support and encouragement for start-ups of all kinds and even for those businesses who may have been around a while and are ready to take it up a notch.

If you’re an entrepreneur in the Kansas City area, stop in.  It’s a place to share your support, get inspired, make great connections and even enjoy a beverage or two (hot or cold)!  See you there!!

TODAY’S TIP:  Share a beverage and conversation with someone who can help you take your business (or your life!) to the next level.  Have a fabulous Thursday!

    HI Jean,

    sounds cool! I got to be part of some similar things last year with our local arts organization: Beet Street which has created Arts Incubator of the Rockies (AIR) to help grow and support the business of artists of all stripes.

    After reading your description, I thought your tip would be the reverse than it was: “Share a beverage and conversation with someone whom you can help their business (or life) to the next level.”

    Still pondering the meanings of it both ways!

    • Hey Steve!
      Thanks so much for that great catch!!! YES, YES, YES!!! It’s a “both/and” — share a beverage and conversation with someone whom you can help AND share a beverage and conversation who can help you! Have a wonderful day and thanks again for taking the time to add your thoughts!! Blessings & joy, Jean
