Cary Entrepreneur Presents “Just Try. Just Ask” for Three Groups in August
Cris Cohen continues to take his “entrepreneurial adventure” around the region.
Cris Cohen of Cary, NC, a humor columnist, blogger, and budding entrepreneur, will present his popular talk “Just Try. Just Ask. You’ll be amazed at what might happen: My entrepreneurial adventure” in August to Triangle Creative Professionals, the Southwest Durham Rotary, and the Apex Rotary.
“Just try. Just ask” chronicles Cohen’s humorous yet successful efforts at setting up a small press – Tyrannosaurus Max Press – through which he is publishing his upcoming humor book “Staying Crazy To Keep From Going Insane.” The book is a collection of humor columns Cohen wrote for several newspapers when he lived in his native California and new ones he’s written since he and his family moved to Cary in 2008. Cohen intends to donate the majority of the proceeds from sales of the book to a local baseball league for children with special needs.
Since April, Cohen has presented “Just Try. Just Ask” to a dozen business groups, book clubs, and other organizations around the Triangle.
“Unsure of what to expect, our group was impressed by his gift of comedic storytelling and his openness to answering questions about his own career path,” said Carlee Mallard, founder of the Triangle Community of Developing Careerist.
“Cris is a delightfully funny and charismatic guy whose talents go way beyond his literary accomplishments,” observed a member of the Raleigh Women’s Coffee & Book Club.
Cohen will address the Triangle Creative Professions (www.meetup.com/Triangle-Creative-Professionals) on August 4 at 6 p.m., the Southwest Durham Rotary (http://swdurhamrotary.org/) on August 11 at 12:30 p.m., and the Apex Rotary club (www.apexrotary.org) on August 18 (time to be announced).
