I’m writing to let you know about the Simple Business Workshop that is taking place at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego on July 25.

The Workshop is being taught by former San Diegans (and Point Loma alumni) Peter Gohman, Chris Bauman and Charles Jolley, the founders of Sproutit. Sproutit is a Web 2.0 company that produces online web applications for business. The guys have been living in Prague, Czech Republic, since graduation. They’re moving back to California again, with a successful business in tow.

The Simple Business Workshop is a one-day intensive seminar that will teach finance, marketing and operations skills and methods to creative professionals, such as designers and software developers, who wish to develop their freelance careers into a proper business or who have a business they wish to make more effective.

Peter, Chris and Charles’s first product, Mailroom, has a host of clients that include some of the design and development stars of the new web. They’ll be teaching methods derived both from their own experiences as successful serial entrepreneurs, as well as case studies based on the experiences of their friends and colleagues in the blossoming live web, including Jim Coudal of Coudal Partners, Derek Featherstone of FurtherAhead, Robby Russell of Planet Argon and Scott Lake of JadedPixel.

So, if you think the Workshop, and the issues surrounding it (Web 2.0, online web applications, design and development and entrepreneurship) would be interesting to your readers and would like a chance to grill Peter, Chris and Charles, please drop me a line or give me a call and I’ll set it up. Likewise, if you have any questions that aren’t covered by the sites listed below, let me know and I will make sure I get you the answers you need.

Finally, if you know of anyone else who would enjoy hearing about the Workshop, I’d be glad to have a conversation with them. Please forward their contact information to me or mine to them.
