This week I’m sipping on mimosas with Anthony Catanese, as product manager at Beeline in Denver CO. Anthony made a near-cross-country move earlier last year with his wife from Jacksonville FL where he had begun initiating entrepreneurial conversations with community members. It was here where he met Eva Baker from The Teenpreneur and Teens Got Cents and then initiated a connection between him and me.
Anthony isn’t a traditional entrepreneur. He’s a product manager full-time and more of an entrepreneur facilitator, being that he likes to be an observer of conversations so as to bring different forces of nature together. Think of Anthony as the orchestra director bringing together musical artists who can go on to create and do great things together.
Even though he’s a wonderful facilitator, Anthony does have his own dreams of starting a business and diving deeper into the world on entrepreneurship.
In our conversation, we hold a conversation heavily around Slack and other tools that have helped him wiggle his way into the Denver and DenVR Live start-up communities. We also dive into two huge tips that have helped him and can help you have more successful connection based conversations.
