A wide variety of different winning companies Nancy Workman, CoOwner, SoundTraxx
enclosure-voice 1281_ 9/17/12 - The Colorado Companies to Watch program Award Winners program, 2012, has a variety of different winning companies. "This year's Colorado Companies to Watch winners show the impact small business has on our economy and demonstrate why Colorado is one of the nation's leaders in innovation and entrepreneurship," said Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper. "We want to congratulate each of these companies and wish them continued success." "Small businesses are the cornerstone of Colorado's economy and a vital part of our economic recovery," said Ken Lund, Executive Director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade. The winners employ nearly 2,000 and had combined revenue of $377 million. We are delighted to be part of the Colorado Companies to Watch program to highlight their accomplishments." SoundTraxx’ corporate entity, Throttle Up! Corp., was founded in 1989 in Pocasset, Massachusetts. Our first product was a powerful little lighting system called the Hyperlight. In 1991, SoundTraxx introduced the SoundTraxx D220-IR Diesel Sound System. This was the first sound and throttle system to incorporate wireless control. In 1994, the company moved to Broomfield, Colorado, a suburb of Denver. The DSD-2408 Digital Sound Decoder was the first DCC decoder to be integrated with sound and lighting functions. In 1998 they moved to Durango, Colorado and purchased a new SMT (Surface Mount Technology) line of manufacturing equipment...

The Contradiction of Focus When Building a Business
Larry Nelson, Author, Mastering Change in the Midst of Chaosenclosure-voice 1275_ 9/10/12 [Orig Pub. 12/2009]- When you ask successful entrepreneurs, What are the keys to building a successful, sustaining business? Among other words, they'll say, Passion, A+ Team, Commitment, Innovation, Focus. While all have substance, the successful entrepreneurs have fascinating stories that support those descriptions, I would like to point out that 'Focus' is a double-edged sword. Let’s be clear, focus is a critical element for building a successful business. It's true that if you don't know where you are going any road will take you there. Then again, if you are so focused on where you are going, you could get side-swiped because you didn't see 'it' coming. So what does this all mean? In Larry’s book, Mastering Change in the Midst of Chaos, Chapter 12, Ground Swells of Change - Prepare, capitalize or fall victim, he discusses five different examples of landscapes and their ground swells of change. He also writes about trends of both the past and the future. Trends have an impact on the landscape; however it's the groundswell that will often determine the success or failure of an endeavor, personal or professional. "The greatest difficulties lie where we are not looking for them" said Johann Wolfgang Goethe. A ‘ground swell of change’ is never a solo effort; it takes many active forces to build up a head of steam. Examples include: innovations, inventions, laws, events, in/out of favor fads, something that is displaced or replaced, cultural changes, local events, controversy, fiscal changes, mergers, movements, etc. There's more....

Leonard Nimoy and Star Trek come to Colorado
Leonard NimoyAmerican actor, film director, poet, musician and photographerenclosure-voice 1277 9/10/12 - [Orig. Pub. 4/26/10] At the 26th National Space Symposium, The Space Foundation Recognized Leonard Nimoy with the Douglas S. Morrow Public Outreach Award.      Larry and Pat had an opportunity to have a discussion with Leonard Nimoy of Star Trek fame. But Nimoy is so much more than that. American actor, film director, poet, musician, and photographer. Famous for playing the character of Spock on the original Star Trek television series and films. They decided to talk about other topics that help us learn more about him and what has shaped his character over the past 79 years as well as understanding his hot buttons. We started out by reflecting on some poetry Leonard read as 'whale song' was heard in the background...that was decades ago but it opened up insights to his current interests and concerns. When asked, Is there something businesses can do to motivate children? Mr. Nimoy's reply was an ouch. "I'm not a sociologist, I'm not a businessman, I can't speak intelligently about that. I'll tell you what I am concerned about; I'm concerned about how much television kids watch that is not uplifting, or educational or inspiring in any way. It's all about celebrity, and if you're celebrity, come and tell us about your celebrity. What have you accomplished? I'm a celebrity - I'm famous for having a lot of children, so I want a TV show - It's crazy. What we have descended to in our education, it's crazy! It's really sad, I could go on about that, I'm not going to." He had a great deal to say about advice he would give to someone following his career path. "The biggest fantasy, myth about my work, about being an actor is people who think a look will get you somewhere, be at the right place and time, that kind of thing - luck plays a big role, but I never believed that, not even as a teenager...Education, it's all about education. Learn, learn, learn and devote yourself to a profession. Be professional about it." Larry asked, "Do you feel the U.S. is losing its position in terms of space?" Leonard replied, "Yes, I don't know to what degree this is true. I don't want to be an alarmist about this, but I do think we've got some work to do." We did end with a Vulcan salute. Listen for much, much more...

Train, provide feedback and deliver services remotely
enclosure-voice Bob Newman, Vice President of Service Delivery, ViaWest1278_ 9/17/12 - ViaWest operates in 5 states around the country with offices in Colorado, Texas, Nevada, Utah, and Oregon and their ability to virtually manage their teams and deliver their services is something they're proud of. With a wealth of experience in high-level operations management and team development, Bob Newman leads ViaWest’s service delivery group. Newman joined ViaWest’s senior management group in the fall of 2010. He said, "We do have a structure on training that enables us to train remotely, to provide feedback remotely and to deliver our services across those states. Our customers expect that the technology will deliver and is capable of delivering the technical service that they expect. But when you overlay the Culture of Service on top of that, which Bob believes is, 'feelings first and facts second' - which has worked for Bob in his career and he sees it here at ViaWest. What that is, you look through the customer's lens and see what are the implications to their business when technology goes awry, and that happens with every customer. When it does go awry how quickly can you assess, isolate and bring that back up - that culture emanates from our senior management team all the way down to the individual contributor. The entrepreneurs roots of Roy Dimoff and Nancy Phillips permeates throughout the organization as well and that is, we know who our customers are. And we don't pull out the contract and beat our customers over the head to deliver on services. We want our customers to be successful." Listen for more…

Yosh Eisbart, CEO/Founder, NIMBL Customer Focus is North America, Colorado a Sweet Spot!
enclosure-voice 1282_ 9/17/12 - Here's how a Denver based company became a winner in the Colorado Companies to Watch program, 2012 - Fueling the Economic Fire of Colorado. Find a niche - like an SAP professional services company. That's what Yosh Eisbart and business partner Michael Pytell did. They founded NIMBL about three years ago. A Denver startup with customers from Miami, Florida going all the way up to the northern tip of Canada. They are North American focused but their customers really do run from coast to coast and north to south with clients like ExxonMobil, PepsiCo, Nestle... From a Colorado perspective NIMBL has a very nice Colorado customer base - and they are really growing because there are no SAP specialized, Denver based services firms like NIMBL. Yosh explained, "While SAP, the most widely used business software package on the planet, is dominated by the Big Four, NIMBL is small enough to not be subject to the fiscal constraints of the business model of a big consulting firm. Eisbart says. "There's a trend in the SAP marketplace that organizations are looking for more agile, nimble and flexible consulting firms that are able to react quickly and moving away from the institutional behemoth. NIMBL isn't shackled by the traditional handcuffs of profit margins..."

Compelled to address the problem with technology
Asmau Ahmed, Founder/CEO, Plum Perfectenclosure-voice 1274_ 9/10/12 - Today we are talking to Asmau Ahmed Founder and CEO of Plum Perfect. Lucy Sanders, the CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology or NCWIT, with Larry Nelson, CEO, Internet Talk Radio bring us another great woman entrepreneur in this series of interviews that we are having with fabulous entrepreneurs. Women who have started “IT” companies in a variety of sectors, all of whom have just fabulous stories to tell us, about being entrepreneurs. Asmau Ahmed brings over 11 years of experience in chemical engineering, math/statistical data analysis and strategic consulting to Plum Perfect. Her story begins with years of unsuccessfully navigating store aisles in search of make-up and clothing colors to make her look her best. As an engineer, beauty & fashion enthusiast, she was compelled to address the problem with technology. And so she built Plum Perfect, a visual search engine that provides instant personalized recommendations to shoppers using their photos. Plum Perfect is so fantastic because it recognizes that between having a career, a family, and a life, consumers need a quicker and more efficient way to shop. It is a one-stop-shop that allows you to search for and find the right beauty products for you. Asmau said, "What we've really built here isn't just a beauty product or fashion or home product - It is the ability for users to take digital photos [we're really in this culture of photo sharing...] Plum Perfect leverages that culture of photo sharing, and uses that to drive e-commerce, powered by really strong technology." Asmau has always been curious and innovative. At a young age her parents changed the laundry room into a chemistry lab for her. So that was the beginning. In college she became a chemical engineer but, to this day she says, "I love, love, love math. I loved innovating and..." Listen for more…

Success and sustainability through good and bad times
Roy Dimoff, CEO, ViaWestenclosure-voiceLarry Nelson, CEO, w3w3® Media Network 1276_ 9/10/12 - bytes=14158265 [Orig. Pub. 9/6/11]
The path to success isn't always flash, bang, big cash and lots of noise. In the long run it is knowing your customer, getting close, staying close, and understanding your customers needs. That's what Roy Dimoff attributes ViaWest’s ‘good luck' to. It was 1999, when we met Roy Dimoff and Nancy Philips as they started ViaWest here in Denver. "Back in the day", money was practically being thrown at companies. Here in Denver we had a number of very large startups going back to '99, a little pre '99. Local competitors had the advantage with 100's of millions in investments.... ViaWest took a different path, kind of low key, if you were watching from a distance. But up close it was action packed, prudent and practical. Back then ViaWest had one office which still exists. Today they have 22 data centers in five states and six major markets. Roy has a habit of checking in with his HR department and they keep adding employees, which is a good thing, especially in today's market, and they're well over 300 people now in those five states. "Knock on wood, Larry. For all the things that happened and we've seen in the 12 years that ViaWest has been around, and certainly living through two recessions is one of them, things are going extremely well. We are part of a great industry. It's nice to be in this position today. To be able to reflect back at those difficult times, knowing that you survived and succeeded in some fashion." In fact ViaWest is in a leadership position today. Looking back we remember favorite words guiding their strategic path, prudence and pragmatism. Larry asked about challenges facing business today. Roy said, "You know, I think similar to the stock market, there are a lot of ups and downs and you have to be prepared to alter your business plan if there's dramatic changes in the economy. We really reflect on our capital investment and our cash conservation and really want to reflect on all the touch points there. And do we want to be a little less aggressive if we see a double dip recession. I think companies should definitely, definitely understand their debt position, their cash position, their growth, and really understand their expense level extremely well - knowing where they can alter if they have to." ViaWest supports the community, sponsors many non-profits and has won many awards...listen for more great advice...
