Today we’d like to introduce you to Alex Ryden.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Alex. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Guest House started in our home in Jefferson Park. We first sold backpacks and duffle bags out of the house. But people began to ask if the furniture was for sale, too. So we decided to swap out everything we owned for products from local makers we loved. People began shopping every corner of our little two stories Victorian. And as interest grew, we outgrew our home and began partnering with realtors to stage their homes through the same model in Denver.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road hasn’t been smooth, but it has been rewarding. We’re helping realtors, makers and shoppers within our platform. So it’s a constant balance of solving problems and needs. But as we scale the business across CO and in new markets, we’re focused on scaling the value our homes deliver, too. It’s all about being a sponge for feedback and staying focused on the ultimate goal – to make everyone successful in this world.
Let’s talk about business. Tell us about Guest House – what should we know?
Guest House stages homes you can shop. We partner with local makers and independent brands to curate the highest quality furniture, art and goods inside beautiful spaces across Colorado.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Success comes when you’re committed to the success of others.
