Obviously when you own a House there are always responsibilities that come along with that key. When you rented... the landlord hired maintenance company to make sure the lights were changed when they went out, the filters on the AC were changed etc. If you are the landlord (long term and short term) you typically also hire a maintenance company to keep everything running correctly and so you dont get the 3 am call about a water leak. Why is it there is no maintenance company that caters to homeowners? Well now there is! Soteria is a service company that specializes in preventative maintenance for Homeowners. The owners, Levi Randall discusses who this service can especially help and why this is a business model that is taking off all over the nation! Support the show (

A lot of Homeowners are faced with this dilemma. They love where they live but their house is outdated or doesn't have enough square footage to support their growing family.

Today, Matt, Chandler and Jon sit down with Michelle McElroy- Moriarity from Carla's A Classic Design. One of the most important aspects of turning a "House" into a "Home" is interior design. Interior design is a process that provides a set of aesthetically pleasing but also efficient solutions... managing the space available and improving the look of a room(s). This can be a daunting task for a non-trained professional. More and more homeowners are realizing the importance of hiring a professional to do the job right! Hiring a professional can not only lead to a more happy family life but can also increase the value of your home! Home Team Podcast Facebook Page:'s Website: Carla's: Our StoryABOUT CARLA’SFrom the time she was a child, Carla McElroy loved design.  She was constantly rearranging her mother’s furniture and accessories to get that “just right” look.  One day, she skipped school to paint a room in the house. Carla followed her dreams and, a few years later, landed her first job as a commercial interior designer in Texas.  Her passion continued to grow and, as she gained more experience, Carla opened her own interior design business in her Dallas, Texas, home.After years of doing residential design in Dallas, her husband’s job transferred the family to Florida.  Again, Carla was able to still have the business in her home and learned a whole different style of design – Coastal.A few years later, her husband was transferred to Colorado for another position.  For a short time, Carla worked for a local design firm.  After being told her “Dallas style” would never sell here, she decided to go out on her own again.  She believed Colorado would embrace this style, and she was right!As the in-home business kept growing, it required more and more employees to keep up with the demands of what had become a million dollar business. At her husband’s urging, Carla soon opened a storefront in Highland Ranch showcasing her services. The storefront allowed Carla to show the quality of furniture and accessories that she sold.  The added square footage also allowed her to hire more designers to support her growing firm!After years of growth, the business outgrew the Highlands Ranch location, and it was time to start looking for something bigger.  The search led them to Southglenn.  The old mall had been demolished, and a larger outdoor mall was under construction. In February 2010, Carla opened her doors at The Streets at Southglenn with a new name CARLA’S: A CLASSIC DESIGN.The company continues to grow and has served customers in homes all over the country and in Canada.  Clients include restaurants, dentists, doctors and other businesses around Colorado. Carla still loves what she does, and you can still see the passion she brings to every designAWARDSNamed Finalist twice for the ARTS award (Accessories Resource Team) for the best Home Specialty store in the Midwest/SouthwestReign Magazines Top 40 Designers in ColoradoParade of HomesNumerous Genesee Model HomesTwo modeSupport the show (

Is your Home really complete without a pet? Sixty-eight percent of US households own a pet and 43 million Americans own Dogs. There is a reason that our Canine friends have earned the title of "Man's Best Friend".

During his recovery, he was introduced to service dogs.  He began training service dogs for other veterans as a form of occupational therapy. Through this therapy he found his life’s passion; working with dogs to serve his country, when he could no longer serve in the US Army.When Michael medically retired from the army in 2016, he founded Connors Canine Behavior Academy.  The academy’s goal to help of dog owners help find the solutions they need with their canine companions. Since that time, he has worked with over 50 clients and trained puppy obedience, adult obedience, behavior modification (reactivity, aggression, anxiety, etc.), professional therapy dogs and professional service dogs. His experience includes three plus years of training professional service and therapy dogs with two organizations.  Both organizations hold Assistance Dogs International certification.  He attended Animal Behavior College to become a Certified Canine Obedience Trainer.  Michael also holds certifications in Canine First Aid and Canine CPR. Connors Canine Behavior Academy is proud to provide service dogs to veterans free of charge in addition to offering training programs for obedience, behavior modification, and service dog training for civilian clients.

Today Matt, Chandler and Jon sit down with Adam Courchaine, PA-C, MPAS, the owner of NuMed Direct Primary Care.  Have you ever had to wait days, weeks or even months to get to see your Health Care provider? Do you hate the costly office visits or worse yet... having to go to Urgent Care or the ER for after hours visits? You may want to look into Direct Primary Care. Under this model, patients may pay a combination of visit fees and/or fixed monthly fees which grant them access to a set of medical services, including same and next-day appointments, which may take the form of office visits and/or house calls.[2]Typically a direct primary care arrangement is paired with either:A high-deductible health plan, as DPC alone will not cover catastrophic health care such as most surgeriesA health savings account, or health reimbursement account as the associated tax-benefits can generally be applied to DPC and other medical expenses.This is not an endorsement of DPC, we are just interested in giving facts and options to our listeners :) Support the show (
