December Newsletter 2018

Year End & 2019 Outlook 

Wow, 2018 was an interesting year at Denver Concierge. We launched window washing, moved out of some markets and recommitted to others, in short, it went fast!!

Of course, our year had its challenges with labor and scheduling, but thanks to your understanding and patience we were able to pull it off. We truly have the best clients in Denver.

We have exciting plans for 2019, but most importantly we want to be the best service provider you know. Angela, Maria, Blanca, John (Maria, John, and Blanca pictured below, Angela photo credits!) and our wonderful ladies in the field wish you the best for an amazing holiday season, and we sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We look forward to doing an even better job for you in 2019, and if there is anything that we can ever do better, please reach out to Angela directly .

As a reminder, we will be closed on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, returning on January 2.

Happy Holidays!!!

Warren Buffett’s Keys to Success

Warren Buffett has a question for you. “Do you say no enough”?

Surprisingly, that is the main premise of what separates successful people from those of us that maybe aren’t so successful.

Buffett says “The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.”

Once we digested this, it made perfect sense. Beyond saying no more often in our lives, and focusing on what is truly important, he also shares some other great tips for success.

Denver New Year’s Eve Celebrations

What are the best ways to spend New Year’s Eve in and around Denver?

Because we know you love to have fun, we came across some resources for you.

Ever wonder how to include kids in the celebration? The Denver Children’s Museum has a family-friendly celebration during the day called “Noon Year’s Eve”!

From the Avs being in town to Denver‘s Grandest New Year’s Eve party, the folks at 5280 Magazine are here to help.

They recently published “11 Festive Ways to Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Denverand we wanted to share with you. You could even ring in 2019 as the Mad Hatter, if the urge strikes you!

Whatever you do, be safe and we wish you a wonderful New Year’s Eve celebration.

2019 Carpet and Rug Trends 

Along with cleaning your home, we want to pass along anything we can to make is perfect for you.

Our friend Marina Dagenais at Designer Premier always has great content in her newsletter, so we often steal her ideas!!!

This month, Marina wrote about fresh trends in the world of flooring and we wanted to share that with you.

While many of you have beautiful hardwood floors (which we love to see shine), 2019 is predicted to be the year of the carpet.

Her article also taught us a new word, “Hygge” (don’t ask us to pronounce it). Danish for happy living, this style is categorized by using natural materials such as linen and cotton.

Winter Home To Do List

Winter officially starts on the 21st, the winter solstice. Also the shortest day of the year in terms of daylight. (We have a pretty cool winter trifecta here in Denver today and tomorrow, take a look here, but we digress.)

Daylight aside, we have had a pretty mild start to the season. Also, it’s not too late to get your home ready for winter and there are some great projects that you can tackle this time of year.

The nice folks at Mr. Handyman published a wonderful list of things that we can all take a look at this winter.

Home automation, how to protect your mailbox from the deadly snowplow and energy efficiency tips are just a few of the great ideas provided.

We recently installed both a Nestthermostat and a Ring doorbell (great for package theft prevention) and we can vouch for both as great additions.

Nothing like being able to control the temperature in our homes with our smartphone (which never seems to leave our side, but that’s another discussion).

Queen Bee Corner

by Angela

I want to close 2018’s Queen Bee Corner by giving a one-woman standing ovation to all Denver Concierge clients.  You really are the best I could ask for.  And I’ll tell you why.

You are kind to our ladies.  Number 1 top of the list.

You make me laugh.  In a good way, as in it brightens my day.

You are forgiving. We do our best.  Mistakes happen.  You are quick to forgive.

You are flexible.  Readily accepting of our crazy schedule changes.

You are generous in your compliments, in whatever form you express them.

So, I stand and applaud you as best a bee can.

Happy 2019 to all!
