Jim Rohn is credited with saying “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
Another (anonymous) quote suggests “If you are the smartest person in the room, then you are in the wrong room”
For the past several years I have hosted a gathering at my house every Friday afternoon.
Each week while the weather is warm, I invite a list of about 100 people to stop by for a cocktail on my porch.
The list is made up of intelligent and interesting people I have met over the years in and around Denver. Some on the list are close friends but most are simply cool people I wish I could spend more time with.
I started Drinks On My Porch (or D.O.M.P. as it is known) out of pure self interest. Instead of fighting traffic trying to meet up with one or two friends on a Friday afternoon, why not invite them all over to my place?
Some weeks only one or two people show up and on more than one occasion I have found myself drinking alone on my porch .
A typical week will have a dozen or so people drop in to say hello. There are no RSVPs so I never know exactly who will show up.
This week, I wanted you to meet some of the amazing people I am fortunate to know and asked some of my guests to record a short video clip to share their thoughts or advice.
Watch the video below and let me know if you are ever in Denver on a Friday afternoon!
