Building a Business

The fall of Circuit City, where I was a store manager, started my hunt to redefine who I am and what I will do. After spending years in retail and business operations, I wanted to start and run my own business. I thought I could build it, and of course people would use this new company and services that I started.

Wow – looking back now I am glad I didn’t know how hard it would be. I probably would not of started it, but here we are 13 years later with 2 locations in Northern Colorado and growing.

The changes that had to be made helped define me – from economical client to the changes in technology and products. What a whirlwind I could not have know when I started. I have to thank all of my business community, friends, partners, and those I call family in business. Without these resources and support I would not be where I am for sure. It takes a village for sure. Never think you can do it alone it has taken hundreds of folks along the way. Here is to the next 13 years.
