Day 44/90 – Hanging with the Cool Kids at Startup Grind

Day 44 of the 90 Days of Awesome is in the bank! What made today awesome? I got to go to the Startup Grind Phoenix barbecue with my fellow entrepreneurs.

This is what happens when you tell me to label myself.

Phoenix has an awesome startup community – lots of enthusiastic, smart, and creative people. We are lucky to have so many events and co-working spaces that bring us together. Tonight I got to hang out at Infusionsoft for Startup Grind Phoenix’s monthly event. We had a barbecue, games, and a raffle – very chill, very fun.

Despite all evidence to the contrary, I’m quite the introvert so usually big events like this are overwhelming, but I had a wonderful time. I got to catch up with people I’d met at other events and meet some incredible new people too. The general vibe of the community is “We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.” I loved it.

Have you been to Infusionsoft’s building? It looks like a converted warehouse with super high ceilings, and open layout, and AstroTurf in the middle. I think it reminds me of my gymnastics days where I trained in a gym that used to be a warehouse. I wish they would bring in a trampoline for a day and invite me over.
