Area Business Tour – Epicentral Coworking

We love to introduce students to local entrepreneurs, and what better way to do that than at Epicentral! Our third time visiting this unique coworking space located in downtown Colorado Springs was full of inspiring stories and challenging lessons.

Five entrepreneurs – Nick Lee (lecturer and co-founder, Lee Spirits), Allison Daniel (photographer and owner, Stellar Propeller Studios), Josiah Seaman (lead developer, New Line Technical Innovations), JL Fields (vegan author, advocate, and coach), and Lisa Tessarowitz (owner, Epicentral Coworking) shared their passions and how they got to be where they are today.

Big takeaways:

  • When you follow your passion, the money will come.
  • Every successful person has had someone in their life recognize their potential, encourage them to be better, and  mentor them in some capacity.
  • Don’t limit yourself to pursuing one thing – you can have several professional pursuits throughout your life or even at the same time!
  • If you’re not being groomed for your boss’ position (or you don’t even want your boss’ position), it might be time to quit and do something new.

Students, we know that some of you will become entrepreneurs (or are already!), and we are excited to see how you change our business landscape for the better.
