- Ryan McDaniel
After graduating from Oklahoma University, I worked for various companies in Oklahoma City and Tulsa over the next several years, eventually becoming sales manager of a publication in Tulsa, but I felt as though I was still not in a position which would allow me to reach my full potential. The year was 2008. It was at this time that my father’s health took a major turn for the worse. However, he was the same genuine, gregarious, charismatic guy through it all that he was known as over his entire life. During his month-long hospital stay, and through much insistence, he convinced an attractive Dominican-born nurse (Attractive in scrubs? Now that’s saying something!), who he had developed a special relationship with, and myself to start talking on the phone. One night his heart stopped, this time for good, but not before he had put Betty and I together in his final days, when the best he could do is to write notes, with much hardship, still urging us to “go out.” I planted that first kiss on Betty the morning of his funeral, and the rest is history.Continue reading →

Thriving Spaces Feng Shui
Lorrie Grillo is passionate about feng shui. When she was little girl she started drawing floor plans and the idea of arranging environments to create the life people want to live has always been with her. A career in Urban Planning led her to grant writing, marketing and design until she “discovered” feng shui, the 3,000 year-old philosophy and practice of arranging our environments to meet our goals. She had finally found a name for my calling and graduated from The Western School of Feng Shui in Solano Beach, CA where she was certified as an Essential Practitioner of Feng Shui in 2008.
Lorrie started her practice in 2009.Continue reading →

Living Well in Lowry (Jewel Communications, LLC)
I am the third owner of Living Well in Lowry, one of our neighborhood’s longest standing print publications – it literally blew across my doorstep one day six years ago when I saw it was for sale. As a new Mom, and new to staying home, I knew this would be a great opportunity to keep my hands in something I love (writing, editing, sales, marketing, desktop publishing, etc.) while still being able to be home with my kids.
Recently I added a second piece to Jewel Communications – document design solutions. I realized my passion for organized information after I earned a Master’s degree in technical communication from CU-Denver. I have always enjoyed the art of writing, but as it relates to businesses, the importance of tailoring information to serve your audience is the key to getting your message across. Redesigning and simplifying forms, manuals or user guides, creating website content, developing presentations, etc. – I love it all.Continue reading →

Ku Interior Design
I’ve been interested in Interior Design since the day I 1st laid eyes on a House Beautiful magazine. I love so many styles that I could never have them all for myself so I thought I should do interior design for other people instead.
I really love how I help people transform their homes from a place that drives them crazy to a place they can’t wait to get home to at the end of the day. My job is not only about creating beauty but also home that functions for my clients as well as nurtures them.Continue reading →

BEEF KING, LLC
When I moved to Denver in 1992, I quickly realized that all my favorite Chicago foods and Italian favorites didn’t exist here. So I began making and perfecting all my favorite dishes from back home. When my dream job of working as a diabetes educator at Barbara Davis Center didn’t work out, I got up the nerve to begin selling my Italian beef at farmer’s markets. The response has been positive, and now I do catering and have a food truck rolling out. Be on the lookout for the BEEF KING truck serving up Italian Beef, Gluten Free & More in Denver and the Front Range.Continue reading →

Colorado Free University
I have had a long career as a clinical psychologist, but stepped in as president of Colorado Free University after its founder, my brother, John Hand, was killed. With no business background and no experience being a “boss” I took the leap because I believe in the mission and didn’t want to see John’s legacy lost. CFU is a great resource for the Denver community and I was excited to take on the challenge and develop new skills.
My favorite moments at CFU are when I walk past classroom doors and see people of all ages and backgrounds engaged in lively discussion with an eager instructor.Continue reading →
