    The SoHo Mastermind meeting schedule has changed!

    Due to the on-going issues with reminders from our teleconferencing system, we have adjusted the schedule so that there is never more than one phone meeting per day. (They couldn't fix the system to accommodate multiple calls per day, so we changed our schedule.)

    This has affected the schedule approximately one time per month through December, and the changes are reflected in the updated meeting schedules posted on the site, as well as the Events calendar.

    My apologies for any inconvenience, but I think it will work out better in the end because we will no longer have multiple reminders for one meeting, and none for others. I think. I hope. We'll see. ^_^

    Vancouver, WA  August 17, 2010.  On July 22 Vancouver artists Jennifer Corio and Dave Frei of Cobalt Designworks installed their new 6-foot sculpture Despite the Rain in downtown Bremerton, Washington.  The whimsical metal woman flaunting her umbrella is an ode to the Pacific Northwest weather…and not letting it get the best of you.  “I really have to drag myself outside during the long dark rainy months, but when I do I find it quite liberating and soul cleansing,” says Corio who designed the sculpture.

    Dave Frei, craftsman of the husband/wife team, fabricated the body of Despite the Rain using stainless steel.  Both the umbrella and puddle are made from mild steel with bright metallic powder coat colors.  “I chose orange for the umbrella to add a bit of sunshine to the piece,” says Corio.  Frei adds, “Stainless steel together with a powder coat finish will withstand the test of time even in Bremerton's maritime climate.”  

    This public art project was funded by Bremerton's 1% for art program, administered by the city's Arts Commission.  They wanted seven individual sculptures to adorn Pacific Avenue in Bremerton’s re-energized downtown.  Corio & Frei were awarded one of the sculptures back in February of 2009, and after months of contract negotiations and project holds they began fabrication last April.  

    You can find their sculpture on the corner of 5th & Pacific in downtown Bremerton (map).  See photos and read more about this metal work project on Cobalt Designworks' blog.  

    In October Corio & Frei will install two more large scale metal sculptures at juried exhibitions in San Diego and Palm Desert, California.  View other public works by the artists at their website gallery.

    Jennifer Corio and Dave Frei are a husband and wife team who combine artisan design with master craftsmanship to create graceful metal sculptures of all sizes.   Their business Cobalt Designworks, established in 2008, specializes in the design and fabrication of these sculptures along with custom ornamental and architectural metal work.  They live and work in Vancouver, WA.

    Just a quick heads up that I will be out of the office on a much-needed vacation from Tuesday, August 24th and will return to work on Tuesday, September 7th.

    What My Vacation Means to Masterminders
    There will be no Monday morning Inspiration Call on August 30. The September 6 call will be delayed one day, and will happen on Tuesday, September 7 at 9 .m. Pacific.

    So, if you wish to book a private 1:1 meeting with me this month, please call ASAP so that we can find a spot on my calendar. Monday, August 23rd is my last day in the office this month, and I don't want to leave anyone hanging.

    Hey gang,

    The audios have a new look, and that's because the new format has a bar that allows you to back up if you missed something. Whoo hoo!

    That should make listening to the audios easier and more effective.

    Thanks to whoever mentioned it was a pain in the patooty to listen to the audios, because that lit a fire under me to make it easier.

    Hi gang,

    So sorry about the problem with the audio from yesterday's Advanced Strategies call on networking. The content will be added to our regular curriculum rotation in the coming months, mainly because of feedback like this:

    Delightful call today, Ronnie!  I love your stories.  Those are what I remember when I hang up.

    Thanks, Caron!! LOVE your feedback.

    The commitments from this morning's Inspiration Call are posted in the forum, and the MP3 is posted on the Inspiration Call page.

    Posting the week's commitment was suggested by a member during today's call, and was approved by the majority of those on the call, so that's the story.
