Aspen Business Connect events are not only a way to easily meet the business professionals of our valley and open up circles for enriching new relationships and collaborations, but they are also to connect deeper within our incredible Roaring Fork Valley Community, because it all begins with community.
As the youngest of three, with two older popular sisters, I was that girl who everyone knew, which naturally has led for me to create a world wherever I go that feels like one big family. Whenever I travel I seek out the locals so that I don’t feel on the periphery of it all. Even when I lived in New York City I went for the small town feel by revisiting the same neighborhood restaurants, bars and cultural venues, and soon everyone knew my name. But in the city one can also break out of one’s neighborhood and get that exotic feel of anonymity. Whenever I felt like things were getting too homogenous, I’d break away and try something new and expand my horizons. Even life in Aspen can lend itself to this type of life travel, but one has to make the effort to branch outside their own social circles. As small as this valley may seem, I am constantly amazed when I meet new people who have lived here as long as I have, or longer.
And then there is the element of community that is so important to nurture. The Lake Christine Fire has been a true testament to how strong our community in this valley truly is, revealing how important it is to help and connect with others. But community is not only about banding together at times of adversity, but also to give support, motivate and inspire one another at any given moment. We need community to keep the energy alive and add new dimensions to one’s life, as well as to diffuse the monotony and stress that life can bring if one gets to stuck in one’s own routine.
From the testimonials and feedback we have been receiving, these Aspen Business Connect events are enhancing an eco-system that needs nurturing. I have heard stories of new business relations and collaborations being made and even people hired, or asked out on a date. And the best part of these events? They meld together a colorful blend of interests, ages and professions from all over the valley.
