Over the weekend, 601am moved two blocks to our new location at 2701 Lawrence, Unit 19. We still have boxes upon boxes of unpacking to do, but if you're in the Denver area, please stop by and say hello. Our entrance is on 27th between Lawrence and Larimer, just around the corner from Crema and other RiNo favorites.
Where did the summer go?! The 601am office will be closed on Monday, September 1, 2013 as we celebrate/mourn the end of summer. Of course you can request new work or check on the status of existing work by visiting our client portal. We will be back, hard at work, on Tuesday, September 2.
In celebration of America's founding, the 601am office will be closed Thursday, July 4, 2013.
As always, you can still request work or check on the status of existing work at https://clients.601am.com.
We will be hard at work again on Friday, July 5th, 2013. Happy birthday, America!
601am is proud to announce that our client, Washingtonian, has been selected as a finalist for a City and Regional Magazine Association (CRMA) award for various categories, but we're especially pleased about them being recognized in the "overall excellence online" category. The nomination (PDF link) honors Washingtonian.com's content, appearance, service to readers, extension of the magazine brand, and ease of use.
Thank you, Washingtonian, for allowing 601am to work with you over the last 14 months. We might be biased, but Washingtonian is the clear winner in our book.
The real winner will be announced in May, and 601am will keep its fingers crossed!
On February 13, 2008, I registered 601am LLC as a company and the little freelance business that I had been working on for years became a "real" company. Since then, "I" has become "we" and the business has taken a life of its own.
601am wouldn't be where it is today without our talented staff, advisors, partners, supportive friends, understanding family, and especially our amazing clients. Every day I'm humbled that I've been able to work with, and for, such incredibly talented people on projects that make me proud. Thank you to everyone who has impacted this business.
We look forward to building the next five years of 601am's future.
Friends and colleagues know that I not only love the work we do at 601am, I'm also passionate about helping others start and run businesses. I'm always telling friends they should quit their boring and high stress corporate jobs and start their own companies (also high stress, but never boring!). Furthermore, I believe that in order to secure a strong and prosperous future for America, we need to instill the values of entrepreneurship in our next generations.
Last year, I became involved with YouthBiz, a non-profit in 601am's neighborhood that "works with Urban Youth to help create the next generation of business owners, job creators and community leaders by helping them harness their passions, skills and dreams through entrepreneurship." This month, I joined their Board of Directors.
Every time I see the kids YouthBiz serves, I come away inspired and hopeful. If not for YouthBiz, these kids might not have been exposed to mentors and resources that would help them excel in school and life. After going through the program, they've learned how to build their own futures through free enterprise.
This week, Huffington Post recognized YouthBiz as a national finalist in their Job Raising Challenge, as an organization that is making an impact in the jobs crisis. YouthBiz has the ability to win $150,000 by raising the most in donations and by being the most viral on Facebook and Twitter. Will you join us in supporting this great organization?

Happy Holidays from the entire team at 601am.
601am is proud to sponsor the 11th annual Bear to Make a Difference Gala Dinner and Celebrity Teddy Bear Auction to benefit the Matthew Shepard Foundation.
Founded in 1998 after the tragic murder of their son, Matthew, Dennis and Judy Shepard honor his legacy by seeking to "Replace Hate with Understanding, Compassion, and Acceptance".
I have volunteered with the foundation for 5 years, currently serving as the Volunteer Coordinator. Beyond my 601am work, I've spent the last couple months staffing the event with dozens of volunteers, working closely with MSF staff to ensure the goals of the gala are met.
If you live in, or will be in Denver on Saturday, October 13, 2012, tickets are still available. Or if you'd like to volunteer for the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
