Bridget Bagel and Jim Abraham

Bridget and Jim met in the summer of 2017, as members of a Burning Man camp using liquid nitrogen to create from-scratch ice cream, and serving it to thousands of parched revelers in the midday heat of the Nevada desert. There was an immediate connection, and soon after they were traversing between Colorado and Massachusetts, where Bridget was getting her masters in gastronomy at Boston University. Read more>>

I am forever grateful for the therapy that painting has provided in my life. My neighbor Carl in Steamboat hooked me up with a huge canvas, easel, paint, and brushes around eight years ago. He was into airbrush and no longer using acrylic paints. He kindly gifted me with all his old supplies and a 36×48 canvas. We would talk about how I used to draw as a kid and I really showed a lot of interest. Read more>>

My professional life has been defined by advancement and relationships. In nearly all of my previous positions, I was consistently promoted to greater responsibilities and to roles new to the company. When I decided to leave a position for new opportunities, my employers often would seek to continue our working relationship, and I frequently freelance for former mentors and colleagues even today.

My husband Lloyd and I relocated to Colorado from New York almost three years ago. He and I are live music fanatics and always wanted to “check out” Red Rocks Amphitheater, so we booked our Colorado vacation to include three shows at Red Rocks while visiting this beautiful state. We had actively been looking to relocate out of NY and focus on a more relaxed, healthy lifestyle. The last night of our vacation. Read more>>

Wood Mountain Company started as a tribute to my late Father and quickly evolved into a business I’m extremely passionate about. I wanted to incorporate the time-worn techniques that my Dad used in his fine woodworking projects and combine them with new-age computer numerical control technology(CNC). Read more>>

Bridget Cameron

I am originally from Kauai, and in 2015 I was living in a barn on my family’s property exploring a career change. I’d graduated from the University of Colorado and then in my MBA program years earlier. My dream was to own my own company one day, but I wanted to figure out how to make that dream come true in a way that was joyful. To do something that really meant something to me. Read more>>

I was working as an EMT going to school for nursing to continue on to nurse practitioners. During my school process, I realized I wanted to offer more to people then what I was being taught in my current schooling. This is where I found Chinese medicine. This school of thought and ancient healing called to me. I applied to the master’s program and couldn’t wait to begin. Read more>>

John Kelley and Shen Zhu

We both have full-time jobs and most of our day is spent apart so we created this company as a way to spend quality time together as a family doing something productive together and also as a way to start instilling life lessons for our son. In the beginning, we started making candles and giving them away as gifts. We really enjoyed the interaction of giving our candles as gifts. Read more>>

Food is something we are always surrounded by, we survive off it every day, but to me, food is more than a meal that comes on a plate. Growing up food meant families coming together, birthday celebrations, weddings and more. I grew up in San Diego, CA in a pretty diverse community, my family which is Cambodian and Thai was one of those communities of that neighborhood. Taco shops, sushi bars, pho restaurants, you name it and we had it all growing up. Read more>>

Joey Klein

I started my company nearly 20 years ago. At first, I was really just looking to improve my own life – find a sense of peace and fulfillment that I knew was out there but that I did not embody, whatsoever. I traveled the world and studied with experts in the field of meditation, psychology, and neuroscience to understand how the brain works and what spiritual practices actually hit the mark to transform lives.
