Episode 105: Investing, Community, Small Business and Gin

Ep 105With Jeff out of town Darcie brings on DC Jim and Russ Ware to discuss Russ’s new venture Good Neighbors Meeting House. Russ and his partner, Yemi Mobolade, currently run the Wild Goose Meeting House. An opportunity arose for them to expand the Wild Goose concept into the Old North End Neighborhood in Colorado Springs, and Good Neighbor was born!

Darcie, Jim and Russ talk about how the Wild Goose made Russ and Yemi more aware of the happenings in the downtown core and how it catalyzed their involvement in the city, how Russ and Yemi go about looking for new business opportunities and building the relationships they need to get their ideas off the ground. Russ also talks a lot about what makes a good investor and how to navigate the funding hurdles for small businesses. Finally, the group discusses Good Neighbors and everything it will offer to the fine citizens of COS. Enjoy the show!
