Clear the Path for Small Business
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
- Mark Twain
Denver is built on innovation and hard work. No longer will we be a city that only puts out the welcome mat for big business, but fails to do the same for our small businesses and entrepreneurs who drive the local economy of Denver. Our small businesses bring diversity to the city and provide not only jobs, but opportunities for others to launch their dream here. We must clear the path for small businesses to thrive. As small business owners ourselves, my husband and I both launched our businesses with big dreams and faced the hard reality of what it takes to make ends meet. That knowledge, my work with small businesses and business districts across the city, and my passion for building a diverse local economy to help people thrive motivate me.
