The Launch Of The Amy Rees Anderson Academic Entrepreneurs Program At USU

Last week we announced the creation of the “Amy Rees Anderson Academic Entrepreneurs” Program at Utah State University in partnership with the Center For Growth And Opportunity and today I was so excited to get to go and meet with our very first cohort of female fellows in the program. I was blown away at

My Visit To The White House For The Empowerment Of Women Symposium

Today I was honored to be invited to The White House in Washington DC to be a part of the Empowering Women Symposium where issues such as the economy, healthcare, and national security were discussed.  A group of 30 women leaders from across the country were invited to meet 90 minutes before the Symposium started

Helpful Holiday Diet Tips and the Tale of My Stolen Toffee

I was so happy today when I saw a pretty blue box of V-Chocolates had been delivered to my office…then I was a LOT LESS happy when I discovered that my two business partners at REES Capital had gotten to the box before I saw it and the two of them had eaten almost all

See How Far You’ve Come

It was exactly three years ago today that I signed the final papers to sell my company. As I look back over the last three years I am blown away at how much has happened since then. I transitioned out of my old company, I launched REES Capital (my angel investment firm), got our charity

What an Incredible Day!

What a day today was!  I started my day at 5:00am this morning so I could get downtown for an early morning meeting with President Wheelwright, the President of BYU Hawaii.  He and I had a wonderful talk about the Entrepreneurship activities going on at his University in Hawaii.  They are doing some really incredible

Here’s To Strong Women

“Here’s to strong women.  May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.” Tonight the University of Utah held a Women Alumni event at our REES Capital offices and they asked me to hold a Q&A forum with the women where they could ask me questions about my past experiences and life

CEO Perspective on Treating Employees Well (and other tips)

I was interviewed on Real Recognition Radio by Roy Saunderson and S. Max Brown and the episode aired earlier today.  During the interviewed we discussed questions such as:  Are there differences in the way men and women lead? What makes a great leader?  How important is communication in a company?  How to build a culture? How to

I can’t believe it’s already been one year!

I can hardly believe that it was exactly one year ago, last Saturday, that we signed the closing documents to sell MediConnect (MCG).  Since that day it has been a sheer whirlwind of activity so when I realized that it was the one year anniversary over the weekend all I could think of is how it

Photo Montage of Grand Opening Event

 Rather than writing a blog tonight I thought I would share a few of the fun photos taken of our Grand Opening Event.  First I will show photos of a few of our friends who attended and then I will post some of the other photos of the inside of our offices as not all

The Start of a Grand adVenture (Forbes article)

We all spend much of our lives working with the hope that one day we will achieve a level of financial freedom that will allow us to pursue our dreams. For me, the Grand adVenture that I dreamed about was starting my own mentoring and angel investing firm that would allow me to take all

“Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Do Is Just Breathe…”

 After working incredibly hard for the last few months to get REES Capital launched, our building construction and renovation completed, and setting up our new offices with furniture and decorations and all the hoopla in order to be ready for our big Grand Opening tomorrow, I definitely needed to hear that quote you just read. 

Save the Date for REES Capital’s Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting!

January 4th will be the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for the new REES (Recognizing and Empowering Entrepreneurial Success) Capital offices!  We are very appreciative that the Governor of Utah himself will be coming to do the official ribbon cutting with us, along with many other dignitaries.  We are honored that they will join us

Don’t Look so Shocked!

“Don’t look so shocked that I know how to use a screw driver and a hammer and that I am willing to get dirty hauling boxes in from the storage unit and assembling furniture!”.  That is what I wanted to say to all of the surprise visitors (and there were a lot) that dropped in

Move In Day!

Monday morning we are officially starting to move-in to our new REES Capital offices!  I can’t believe the day has finally come!  It feels like we have been doing construction forever on the build-out of our new space.  Between city zoning issues and getting permits it has been a long process, but it is so

Day One, One Word – EPIC!

Today was day one, I repeat, day ONE of REES Capital and let me tell you that EPIC is seriously the only word that would describe today.  What a whirlwind of amazingness today was! We had news interviews with the Salt Lake Tribune that hit today’s paper: http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/money/55011370-79/anderson-capital-rees-mediconnect.html.csp The Deseret News that hit today’s paper:
