Colorado cool stuff: wine racks, chalk fun and natural caskets

I have a business using reclaimed construction material to decorate homes. I do believe this is environmentally friendly; I am doing my part. Using <a >windows</a> as home decor rather than trashing them has become a fad. And I lucrative one. By Window Man on 2014 10 15

Growing old isn't for sissies

There are more substantive questions to prompt: Why does your parent need to move? Is there a cognitive issue? Is there a physical safety issue? Are they in the same town or state? Has your parent developed a will, power of attorney documents and designated a family member to assist with these affairs? Are you aware of a KELS exam to assess cognition and personal safety? This validates too the ability to self-administer medications as well as the ability to prepare food, eat it on time, and store it safely. Does the elder care facility offer sliding services for someone who has a cognitive decline but is not yet ready for memory care? An assisted care facility is not a nursing home and does not provide that level of care. Who are the local physician care services and do they visit the facility; do they have a good reputation?

Great Article. As a small business owner myself (this is my third) I think #5 is the most challenging. When you are running a small business it seems like nobody is as passionate as you are about the business. The staffing and management have been the biggest challenges for us. Thanks again for the article By Glen Weinberg: Colorado Hard money lender on 2014 10 13

The No. 1 leading sales-killer

Nice job Liz. I just shared this with my team in Colorado and our others 4 offices in the US. We call that "stuff" you talk about head trash as well. We joke around the office about taking out the trash. So thanks for the laugh, the reminder and your words of wisdom. Steve By steve on 2014 10 13

The No. 1 leading sales-killer

Thanks Glen. The #2 sales killer is a close second to #1. Rejection. How it is perceived and ultimately how it is handled are key to sales success. Liz By Liz Wendling on 2014 10 13
