Caffinated Entrepreneurs

Aug 19, 2020 | Living the Dream

In May, I presented Pennie Works Studio to everyone at Stillwater’s 1 Million Cups event. I have been negligent with my blog posts and am trying to catch up. So even though I know this particular post is a little past its sell-by-date, it was a kind of a big deal and still should be talked about.

l Million is a nation-wide program that encourages entrepreneurialism by providing an opportunity for entrepreneurs to gather, network, and learn from each other. The monthly event features two entrepreneurs giving a 6-minute talk followed by 20 minutes of Q&A. This particular one included a live video feed that remains in the cloud, now and forever.

While my talk did produce some buzz, the return encouragement was not for me to prosper in graphic design but give it up to do stand-up comedy. I just want to say I really do drive an 11-year old Hyundai and the house really does need siding. Not sure why that is funny.
