One of the most rewarding things about getting to know so many entrepreneurs is seeing first-hand how many of them are focused on so much more than just financial results. So many of the folks we connect with are focused on having a positive social impact on their community or the world at large. Check out some of these amazing folks below.

Cody Tinnin | Bass Player for Stillhouse Junkies, Multi-instrumentalist, Songwriter, Producer

I’ve been fortunate enough to travel all over the United States with my band Stillhouse Junkies. We have played shows for all kinds of people and had a chance to chat and get to know folks from all different walks of life. No matter what people’s backgrounds are, or personal beliefs, we’re always able to connect with folks through our music. I think music is very powerful in that way and if we can bring folks together through what we do, I’d like to think that has some kind of positive impact on the world. Read more>>

Ryyse Creations is not only a business that allows me to create and express myself but it’s supposed to foster positive change starting with the community and then hopefully the world. The overall goal of Ryyse Creations is to get people to reconnect with nature and to realize how we are all connected. I believe that if people reconnect with nature they will gain a new understanding and respect for everything in life. A lot of people are struggling in so many ways and I think reconnecting with nature will really help people pursue the best quality of life. Read more>>

Dan Zhou | Educator & Entrepreneur at ReadyEdgeGo

We zap away stress and prepare our children for a better future in an ever changing society. In a world where high schoolers outnumber counselors 500 to 1, or 1000 to 1 in California, students and their parents have nowhere to go for help concerning questions on which courses they should take for next year, which major to choose for college, and what colleges are the best fit.

Jesica Marican | Owner of Denver Home Organizing

Denver Home Organizing strives to help our community by helping our most important resource: the people who live in it. We teach how to reduce the amount of time and energy spent managing possessions, helping transform homes into personal sanctuaries. When our homes are peaceful places that truly allow us to rest and recharge, we are better family members/friends/employees/volunteers and we are better equipped to contribute to our communities in meaningful ways.

Jesse Blum | Automotive broker & educator

H.M. Brown & Associates helps the community in many ways. As part of every deal a portion goes to a fund that is used for charitable causes. In 2021 HM Brown donated to multiple organizations from a coat drive to providing food for families on Thanksgiving to the Veterans Administration. The cause that is near and dear to me is the annual Furry Scurry benefiting the Dumb Friends League and their locations. They help dogs, cats, horses and other animals find new homes as well as health and rehabilitation. As a firm H.M. Brown raised $3467 to support this wonderful organization for the 2021 event.
