Celebrating Our Flourishing Community

Christine Des Enfants

There is so much going on at your Cherry Creek Chamber this month!

Our community is incredibly fortunate to welcome an abundance of new businesses, which means...Ribbon Cuttings. We are fitting in as many as we can while supporting our own events. Last month, we celebrated Dog Drop and Squeeze Massage; this month, we welcome HeyDey Lowry and Slifer, Smith, & Frampton. Look for more Ribbon Cuttings peppered in with our traditional 4th Quarter events as we welcome new businesses into our Chamber Community.

Also, congratulations to all of our fabulous winners from the Wicket & Stick It Croquet Tournament noted below. It was a blast!

Marta Spirk Empowerment Coach

What brought you to start your business or get into your industry?  I had built a 20-year career as a teacher, translator and interpreter when I had triplets in 2016. This life-changing event prompted me to begin my own business as a life coach, as I felt the need to empower myself postpartum. Since then, my coaching has evolved into helping women entrepreneurs beyond mindset and into taking action to promote their products and services by increasing their visibility on social media, stages, TV and more.

What do you love most about what you do?  The best part about my work is seeing my clients show up more confidently. It's extremely rewarding to be a part of a transformation process of women who feel awkward or scared to toot their own horn to being extremely proud of themselves and their accomplishments. It's magnetic energy!


How can the Chamber help you? I'm grateful for the chamber and the opportunity to connect with other local entrepreneurs. Since I know the power of visibility, having the chance to be spotlighted, share about my services and contribute to the community is a great start!
