Came across this great video on promoting the Entrepreneurship in Colorado. The previous economic development organization in Pagosa Springs (AEDA) was focused on identifying, assisting, training and promoting small businesses and owners in the Pagosa Springs community. Although it is a long-term strategy, it shows where the many higher paying jobs are created. I have personally seen many of my clients and local businesses hiring over the past 2 years with above average wage jobs in companies such as Growing Spaces, Parelli, PowderJack, Quest Aerospace and other direct based companies in Pagosa Springs. Despite the economic downtown, these companies are growing and providing jobs.
