Considering a name change for your company? There’s a great Chinese Proverb to ponder: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is today.”  So if a name change is in your future, it only becomes more complicated the longer you wait.  I’m not writing a memoir here – this is real-time, and here are a few tips to consider.

Reclaiming Brighton Boulevard
Long eyed by Denver planners for its potential, the Brighton Boulevard corridor is attracting the attention of developers and businesses wanting to locate in what once was a tangle of rail yards and large industrial plants. Though slow to evolve, the renaissance started with the early vision of urban pioneer Mickey Zeppelin, whose 20-acre mixed-use project TAXI was catalytic to the development of River North (RiNo) – a neighborhood north of downtown that Brighton bisects. Firm believers in the area, Zeppelin and his son Kyle recently opened The Source, an urban artisan market on Brighton. By Margaret Jackson

   ColoradoBiz EXTRA 
I’ve had many vehicles the past few weeks that probably wouldn’t be on most people’s shopping list together. I would argue that the potential buyers of the 2014 Buick Regal and the 2014 BMW 328i would be completely different people, and neither one would test-drive the other vehicle. This has been Buick’s problem for a very long time, at least in the U.S.market. It has pretty much the oldest demographic of any auto brand name. By Jeff Rundles
