PROEDITORS – Video Production for Everyone

PROEDITORS – Video Production for Everyone

Wondering if you’re like me, you have unedited Go Pro and Phone Video footage sitting on your computer just taking up space. I think most of you are nodding your head yes. Meet Patrick Latcham, founder and CTO Tyler Chase-Nason of ProEditors.com. Patrick had an idea, a really good idea that was brought from concept to reality and created a video editing solution to transform your raw GoPro footage into professionally edited movies (click the video above for an example of their work). After a successful run in a position with New York Life Patrick was not feeling good about what he was doing and really wasn’t sure what path to take for his career. He and a buddy decided to pack up all their belongings in a car and head o for adventures in the mountains of Telluride where Patrick began working as a ski instructor. He then moved on to work for the resort. His ah-ha moment for ProEditors came after assisting his girlfriend with a family...

Colorado Mountain Town’s Big Business Startup Scene

Colorado Mountain Town’s Big Business Startup Scene

The forecast in the Colorado Rocky Mountains has been looking bright for skiers and snowboarders. No. We’re not talking about El Nino (although we’re excited that Mother Nature has been delivering the goods this season). We’re talking about the outlook for startup businesses, entrepreneurship and remote working. Remote Working is on the Rise Colorado leads the nation for economic growth (Business Insider, 2014), entrepreneurship (Entrepreneur Magazine, 2013 and US Chamber of Commerce, 2014) and startup activity (Kaufmann Index, 2015). And before you assume that we’re only talking about Denver and Boulder. Think again. There’s a flurry of startup activity, entrepreneurship and remote workers in mountain towns like Telluride, Durango, Breckenridge, Steamboat and Frisco. One of the Many Business Events Held at ElevateCoSpace “Colorado’s population is growing and business is also booming. There’s a lot of momentum here,” says Lindsey Stapay, director of the Northwest Small Business Development Center, an entity that supports small businesses, as well as startups with workshops, business coaching and events in a region that covers mountain...

Kristin Carpenter-Ogden: Verde Communications & The Intrepid Entrepreneur

Kristin Carpenter-Ogden: Verde Communications & The Intrepid Entrepreneur

Catching up with Kristin Carpenter Ogden of Verde Communications and The Intrepid Entrepreneur seemed like it would be a really difficult task however she was there on the phone with me to discuss how much she loves living in a mountain town and how she has not just survived but truly thrived in the region. She is what I would call an Incredible. Kristin is the Founder and CEO of Verde Brand Communications whose office now occupy Jackson, Wyoming, Durango and Boulder,Colorado. Her real title should be the Intrepid Entrepreneur because she is fearless unafraid and adventurous. She was born and raised in California but had an undying desire to live in small mountain town after she graduated from University of Davis, Californa. With money saved up she headed to Durango and secured a job as a reporter at the Durango Herald covering sports, cops and courts and mountain biking.

Coworking Entrepreneurs Open their Doors

Coworking Entrepreneurs Open their Doors

Since out last article on Coworking in the Colorado Rocky Mountains there have been some great new spaces opened in our mountain towns. I just spent a few hours at Drop-In-Desk, a relatively new co-working space located in Steamboat Springs. It was a great place to get some work done. Everything I needed was there- good wifi, copy machine, COFFEE, scissors, printer and new friends/connections.  For more then 10 years I have been either a part time telecommuter or working “stiff” producing full bore out of a home office here in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. In the early days the split between an office and home office was a godsend. When I began full time officing from my home I quickly discovered that dedication and discipline was a very serious issue. The ability to rise from bed and move straight to the computer equaled a permanent PJ professional and really that did not feel very good. I am very excited for the newest Co-Working Space to officially open in the town of...

Take Me Out to the Tax Game

Take Me Out to the Tax Game

Well it’s now September and we are back to work after the long Labor Day weekend here in Colorado. As we tune back into our work schedule we decided to bring you a great business article from Larry Stone​. Larry talks about the great American and summer past time – Baseball… with a twist. Read on to be entertained and a little bit flabbergasted. Every child who attends a “Big League” ball game dreams of catching a foul ball – or even better, a home run. For Tom Sherrill, a California Angels fan from Pomona, California, that dream came true when he caught Albert Pujols’  500th home run ball on May 22nd.  To catch a 500th home run ball is an honor indeed.  Only 25 players in major-league history have reached that 500 home run milestone. But Tom didn’t just catch a piece of baseball history. He caught a tax problem, one that required him to make a vital decision on how to proceed with the bounties of his catch.  Yes,...
