Come build a powerful network of freelancers in Denver

By Drew Hornbein

I’m a freelance consultant in Denver who’s been working on my own for nearly 15 years. It’s awesome: I’m my own boss, I choose who I work for, the work is varied and interesting, I have the freedom to travel, and pants are optional (in my home office anyway).

This is what independent workers will tell you, but we often don’t share the things that suck. I’m my own boss, but I’m also the accountant, the marketing department, and mail clerk. We live in a constant state of feast and famine, always rushing to find the next bit of work before the money runs out. It’s also super lonesome. No one to bounce ideas off of or talk me off the ledge when I am ready to give up, ghost all my clients, and live in the woods as a hermit.

Startup Stories as Told Through Dramatic Portrayals

Before you read about the greatest event in the history of ever, here’s the entire list of Denver Startup Week Events. They are free and they are awesome. Almost as awesome as this…

During an event as big as Denver Startup Week, it’s hard to stand out. You’ve got to be a tech legend parachuting from an armada of neon airships just to get a glance. But we think we have something better. We have Startup Stories as Told Through Dramatic Portrayals, a show featuring Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock and startup luminaries Ashley Kingsley, Bing Chou, and Julie Nirvelli.

These panelists will share their stories while a team of improv comics acts out the narrative.

We asked 3 mom bloggers for tips on how to be awesome online

If you’ve been keeping up with the Name.com Twitter feed, you may have noticed a whole lot of excitement going on at our office at the end of last week. We invited three Denver-based mom bloggers to hang out with us for the day and shoot an upcoming video—and it was a blast!

Emily Vanek, editor in chief of ColoradoMoms.com; Sarah Vickers, the founder of MooseandTater.com; and Daria Drago, the project manager turned blogger behind MominManagement.com joined us for a day full of filming, pampering, and chatting about how to find internet success.
