Yoda Has Left The Building

It’s official — Small Business Specialist, Employee of the Year, Consultant of the Year, and Aurora Small Business Advocate of the Year is officially retired now — and still happier than a millionaire.  We will miss him.  He’s shown below with Glenn Plagens, Director of Business Support and Rural Prosperity, and to the right Chuck is with his colleague and long-time consultant Jim Olp.  Jim gave Chuck his ‘framed’ million!

    

We are excited for Chuck’s next venture and wish him well!

New on board with the SBDC is strategic planning and financial specialists Neil Pollard for Aurora and Laurie Wolmer for the South Metro area.  We are also privileged to have Lanelle Barnett on Wednesdays to assist clients with tax planning, accounting and bookkeeping questions (no, she will not do your books for you nor your tax returns ;^)  Stefanie Dalgar is our marketing expert, and they are all a joy and enthusiastic for small business.  Please give us a ring for one-on-one free and confidential business consulting, (303) 326-8686.  We continue forward without our Yoda Chuck Hahn!
