Thanks Sam, As always....your article hits on so many critical components of success. I liked this line.... “Magic” is really nothing more than hard work combined with years of experience! That should be on a plaque. Good stuff. Liz By Liz Wendling on 2014 11 10

Rundles wrap up: Hot or not – Every boom must go a’ bust

Jeff, Great article. I am a lender myself and can't believe the apartments going up everywhere. More surprising is the premium prices people are paying all the way up to Longmont. Unfortunately this is all being driven by extremely low rates, it is not hard to make a nice return when you are borrowing at 2 or 3%. The party is definitely not sustainable and will end badly at some point. By Glen Weinberg on 2014 11 05

Managing uncertainty with confidence

Kathleen, Great column! I was introduced to Robert Schuller many years ago and have devoured his writings finding great quotations and questions that have improved my faith in people, to inspire others, to help others resolve directional issues in their lives (including my own). I love your hit points or questions on leadership, personal development. Your article should be passed out to everyone in a company. Then, let personal responsibility generate change. By Jeffrey C. Fischer on 2014 11 04

Executive wheels: Wanna race?

Jeff: You should write an article on the worst cars and drives on I-70 going from Denver West to Vail. Worst car and driver in my book is any Subaru Station Wagon in the left lane. Driver is usually not even doing the speed limit and won't get over in the right lane to let faster vehicles pass. I call these people a traffic hazard. Also, CDOT needs signs every mile from Denver West to Vail saying keep right except to pass. At least the Subaru WRX drivers are better drivers than the Subaru station wagon drivers!!! Finally, one of my clients has determined that it takes less time to go to DIA and fly to Salt Lake City and go to Park City to ski than attempting to drive to Vail on the weekends.
