Homejoy is No More

Some of you may be familiar with Homejoy, the national service that would connect folks with housecleaners. Much like Uber and Lyft, they faced serious consequences by attempting to make everyone that worked for them independent contractors and not employees. Why do we bring this up? Because we want to remind you just how different we really are. Not only are all of our staff full time employees (trained, insured and bonded), but we take the old fashioned approach to everything we do when it comes to your home. Having varying and inconsistent people in your home every time you request a clean is not a very good model to us. Homejoy went out of business last month. Meanwhile, Denver Concierge has been around for 16 years and counting, thanks to our loyal and passionate clients. Thank you for supporting our local business!!!

Partners (and Events) We Love

Every year we attend a fabulous event sponsored by our friend Heather Klutznick at Trilogy Financial. The event is their annual Economic Update and this is their 8th year in a row, which is mighty impressive! Heather has been kind enough to extend complimentary invitations to any Denver Concierge clients that wish to attend the event next week. The registration link is here, and you can enter the password KLUTZNICK at the bottom of the page to waive the $150 event fee. There are breakout sessions as well as a great keynote speaker. If you are interested, click here on the big ‘register’ button. We hope to see you there!!

Why you Need your Sleep

Seasons are changing and with daylight hours adjusting as we move into fall and winter, sleep can sometimes become challenging. We know we get super cranky when we are sleep deprived, but we wanted to learn more.

Queen Bee Corner

by Angela
I would like to dedicate this month’s Queen Bee Corner to Le Central, the colorful French restaurant on Lincoln that is closing after 34 years in business. (Thank you Pam for your email alerting me to the closing).  It’s the talk of the town, as it should be.  Denver is loyal to its independent businesses and I know this from our clients who have been with us for years and years and consider us a part of the family.  We support independent businesses because they build a sense of community.  The downside is we feel their loss more acutely. Merci Le Central.  We will miss you.

September Charity Events

On September 17th we will be attending the annual MS On the Move Luncheon at the Westin downtown Denver. Unfortunately we know a few folks that have been affected by this terrible disease and we are in full support of the search for a cure.

The cause is a great one, and for those of you that are interested in attending and/or donating, more information can be found here.


The World’s Wealthiest People

What do the world’s wealthiest people have in common? If you answered money, that is a great guess.

However we were looking for something deeper, and we ran across this great infographic from The Roosevelts that gives us a better snapshot.
