Sarah Briam

I have always been an ‘outdoorsy’ kind of girl. Adventurous as well. After college, on a whim I moved to the Cayman Islands to work for the Ritz Carlton. I had never been around such a high level of guest service in my life. It amazed me and it challenged me. After two years working hard and playing hard in the Caymans, I realized I had stumbled upon a job that gave me a way to travel while maintaining full time employment. So, I set my eyes on the property in Avon, Colorado. Read more>>

I grow up with two German shepherds as a kid. I developed a strong love for this breed. I purchased a top pedigree German shepherd when I was 17 and had her professional obedience train and had her protection trained at a later age. She was the last German shepherds I had in my 20’s. In my 30’s, it was time to get another German shepherd to protect the house while my husband working grave yard and my three kids who loved to play outside. Read more>>

Joshua Burger, Jason Braun, Lenny Van Scyoc and William Dalke

Jason Braun kept bugging me about this game he had started playing, Magic the Gathering, and he wanted me to come check it out at a local games store. I had zero interest as I thought it was a kid’s game and I had better things to do with my time. I finally relented and went with him to see what it was all about. I was instantly hooked, so much so that about two years after being introduced the game and the awesome folks who play it, we bought the store that we played at. Read more>>

I got started in Credit Restoration and Education in 2011 in Houston, TX. I was watching television one morning and saw a commercial for a challenger with no money down and no interest for six months! I immediately threw on clothes and called my best friend to drop me at the dealership so I could pick up my new car! Little did I know it wasn’t as easy as it seemed. I was at the dealership for 5 hours just for them to let me know I was not approved because my credit was horrible. Read more>>

Heidi Patchet

Squishy Dough was incorporated in 2014, but really started nearly a decade ago when my son was little. This little bundle of snuggles, laughs and giggles was not so full of joy when it was time to eat. He whined and yelled at mealtime. Actually, he had a food aversion, and I couldn’t wrap my head around it. Partly, because when I grew up, fresh air and farm fresh food was just how we rolled. I hadn’t been prepared for this, and definitely didn’t know what to do to change it. Read more>>

Jassmyn Strode

I started GlowGirl Cosmetics in April of 2020. I have always had a love for beauty care and cosmetics and always wanted to start my own business but put it off for some time. When the COVID-19 happened, it gave me the opportunity to explore my creativity and invest in myself and my dreams. I continued to work on my craft and decided to come out with my own skincare line to start off with and that’s how Glow girl started. Read more>>

Post college I did a couple months backpacking Europe, moved to Yosemite to work at a mountain resort/hostel directly after. During that six months, I met my now business partner, Perry Perkins, whom shared a love for travel and storytelling. From California, we backpacked Southeast Asia, Australia, NZ for a few months before going back to our separate homes, his in Iowa and for me, Pueblo. I bought my first camera and spent the next 6 months as a line cook by day, band videographer/photographer by night. Read more>>
