The Importance of Community in Business

With Expert Panelists Sam Dardano, Tom Fanning & John Geringer


Are you a rugged individualist? Do you think about your business and say, “ Oh yeah, I’ve got this”. Let’s be real; we ALL need community and outside eyes on our business. The learning part of being a business owner NEVER stops and we will always need “outside eyes”, even after we’ve realized a “mature business". Actually, it’s crucial in helping your company stay successful.

Our Panel of Successful Business Owners includes:

Samantha Dardano: Residential real estate broker with Metro Brokers for over 25 years. She is a Colorado native assisting buyers and sellers to realize their dreams of home ownership. Her specialties include extensive knowledge of the Stapleton community & Douglas County. She owns many rental properties and has extensive knowledge of investment properties. Sam has been a member of the Crankset community since the beginning. Along with a core group of community driven thinkers, she collaborated with Crankset to form the very first 3to5 group known today as “The Originals.”

Tom Fanning: Founder and Visionary behind Boomzaa. With a strong background in values-based, high performing leadership…much of it across 30 years in the real estate, resort, and hospitality industries, Tom is pioneering a new type of socially vibrant, smaller-scale residence “community” concept…communities of people, not houses. From Vail to Breckenridge and Dallas to Denver, his experience includes on-site general management and corporate culture development, national multi-site hotel portfolio responsibility, and optimizing executive level team performance.

John Geringer: Executive Vice President – Client Advocacy with CEDRUS Financial. He has been a member of the Crankset community since December 2011. John loves to push people forward to where they want to go. He specializes in helping proven Entrepreneurs and Executives make smart choices about their money and intentionally have impact in the areas of their life that are more important than money.

Come interact with Chuck and our panel of experts to find out how you can use the power of community and continue to have a business that thrives. This lunch is a perfect example of a committed community of business owners where we help to push each other forward. It’s a safe place for all of us to say those three magic words, “I don’t know”. Let’s figure things out together!

What will you and your business gain from being a part of such a transformational discussion?
