New Clients and excellent Denver Businesses.

I always thought it would be a great idea for someone to produce a web site where sub contractors, and companies that work for other businesses could rate those businesses. After all, if you think about it, how a business treats their vendors is a big indicator of the quality of service you will receive from that company.

It’s the same premise as the old, there are two types of people in the world and you can easily identify them by the way they treat a waitress.  I was very disappointed when I read about a certain mega Internet/Computer business man who in his biography seemed to treat waitresses  very poorly.  I mean… come on! I was a waiter when I was 20. You learn pretty fast about these two types.

The way a business treats it’s vendors is the same thing to me. If I really want to check out a company before we do business, I will ask to speak to their vendors. You should try it!  It can save you a great many challenges.

So, In that spirit I just wanted to give thumbs up to the following clients for making our A+, really great to work with list.  These businesses and the people behind them are a true joy to work with!  I have included our more recent clients, so if you are not on the list, it has nothing to do with how we feel about you. We love all of our clients!

First and most recent is the Bankruptcy Law Firm of LaCroix and Hand, P.C. in Grand Junction. Absolutely the greatest people to work with. I am confident that is I had a legal issue and needed a law firm , these folks would be a pleasure to work with.

And if you need a Denver Painter, Kevin  at American Painting Specialists has been fantastic to work with. I am sure that professionalism is the same if not better at the customer level.

And, finally for now, working with Ameraclean carpet cleaning has been great. As a Denver carpet cleaning company they specialize in pet stain removal.  As a ling time pet owner, I know the number one thing I want from getting the rugs and carpets clean is stain removal. Very professional  and very good at what they do.

A big Thanks to all of these businesses for being so great to work with!

National Western Stock Show Moving to Aurora?

Western straw cowboy hat
Forgive the straw. I know it's in January and felt is the preferred hat.

I was born and raised in Denver.  The “stock Show” was a huge local event in the 1960’s and 1970’s.  You could drive through downtown Denver and half the business people had their cowboy hats on. The Brown Palace lobby was full of well dressed ranchers, and the parking lot was full of trucks.

Today I read they are thinking of moving the stock show to Aurora Colorado.  That’s like moving Mardi gras from Bourbon street to Tyler Texas.  It just doesn’t make sense.

I understand they need a modern facility, and there are  significant dollars at stake, but as a native of Denver (now in Lafayette Colorado) it just seems that there must be a way.

I propose they settle it the only way it should be settled, a bull riding contest between the mayors of both cities.  The spectacle alone would bring in mega bucks.

Denver Economic fears overblown?

Wells Fargo strategist says economic fears ‘overblown in this weeks Denver Business Journal.

It’s an interesting view, and he bases it on the fact that what is really slowing down the recovery is a lack of work place growth.

Wells Fargo actually see’s things turning around faster than in previous recessions.  See the article here:

I am not sure many of the small business owners in Denver would agree, but it is nice to see some positive spin on this.  I do think the next 16 months it will be very important for all of us to keep the most positive out look possible because we are moving into an election, and that means we will be hearing about how terrible the economy is 24-7.

I am a big believer in the consumer “mass mind-set”.  Consumer spending is not going to pick up when all we hear about is the crisis  and that we are facing doom.

Let’s all try to point out the good in the economy, while acknowledging the challenges. It’s the right thing for business in Denver and across the country.
