April 2017 Colorado Springs Entrepreneurs Group Meetup

Written by  Mike Schmidt


April 2017 Colorado Springs Entrepreneurs Group Meetup


CSE Group Members:

Well, we are back at our "East Library Home" this month for our April meetup... and we have a great set of 2 Business Speakers for you this month that I'm sure you will find quite engaging and informative.

Be sure to bring a friend this month as we are going to "open up the doors" to some serious PERSONAL FINANCE INNOVATIONS from Mike Wilkinson at MyNetSum who will be introducing their new personal credit management and budgeting services that I believe represents a "fresh new take" on financial planning services.

And to round out the evening, come and get some serious BUSINESS RESEARCH TIPS from Terry Zarsky from the PPLD who after 30 years of service... definitely knows where everything is !



Mike Wilkinson - MyNetSum

First up, will be an introduction by Mike Wilkinson, the CEO of MyNetSum.  I first met Mike about a year ago as he was making plans to re-locate his business and family to Colorado Springs from New Mexico, and as he was putting some of the final touches on his MyNetSum vision.  I think you will find his personal story of early childhood struggle, and eventual rise to successful businessman and father quite inspiring.


MyNetSum, an all-in-one service solution to decoding the financial language, advising you step-by-step to achieve your financial goals. In essence, MyNetSum shows you how to save and earn more money for your household and attain the lifestyle of your choice. Mike’s had one of the roughest upbringings possible as the victim of human trafficking. Mike was adopted by a Soldier’s family at the age of 4 and both he and his father healed each other from their scars.   More Info Here:

About Mike Wilkinson:

Mike’s career started as a car salesman where he discovered a flaw in the system and has spent the last 7 years helping people work through their financial struggles and have the resources to live their desired lifestyle.  Mike’s married to Natalie and the father of 6 children. They spend their time focused on the most important things in life for them; family, education, and their faith.









Terry Zarzky - Business Services Librarian at Pikes Peak Library District

For business owners and wannabe entrepreneurs, Terry Zarsky is the go-to woman at the Pikes Peak Library District in Colorado Springs.  I have known Terry for well over 5 years now, and every time I see her... she is supporting local small business people and entrepreneurs !  One of this communities real "gems"....  Always upbeat, Terry knows virtually everyone in town, and she earnestly wants to help people to start or grow a business. Her knowledge, courses and consulting are free, thanks to the library.  And she has been doing it for 30 years at PPLD !


At this months CSE Group meetup will have Terry Zarsky, our resident Research Guru "Live and Uncensored" ! Well I'm sure Terry will be in "good form" as she will speaking at her "home turf" at the East Library, but she will amaze you about how much she really knows about small business research and how to make it "Work" for you in your business.   

About Terry:

For many local small business people... Terry Zarsky is one of the community's most valuable resources. In an age where endless data is available on everything, knowing where and how to find the answer you need becomes a skill without price. Her experience as a reference librarian means she knows what resources are available and how to use them. Her passion for information means that she is dedicated to sharing that information in a way that makes it accessible to the everyday searcher.

On the clock or off, in the library or at a community event, Terry is always eager to share learning and experience. She is an engaging and passionate speaker with a real love of her subject. Terry is often a featured speaker at the Small Business Development Center helping people understand the resources available to them to build successful business plans and understand target marketing. With her help, the research process is streamlined as she leads people to find exactly the right information for their particular purpose.

Other Entrepreneurial Speakers:

We may have 1 or 2 other 10 Minute Entrepreneurial speakers, so will update you this week on the agenda as we get them confirmed.


Looking forward to seeing many of our new members this month... !


Mike Schmidt, Chair
