My guest on today's episode were Miles and Vallene Kailburn, Founders and Chief Executive Officer and Chief Creative Officer of Old Town Media located in Fort Collins. Old Town Media is the company that built my first website for my food trailer. Bear's backyard grill way back at the beginning of LoCo Think Tank.
They've come a long way. We didn't really get into it, but they've won so many awards like Top 200 private companies, Top 100 women-owned companies, Best of Colorado, and many more, as well as a lifetime of service through Rotary Club, and volunteer boards.
We talk about their families growing up, where some of their motivations came from, their technical skills, both non-college graduates, and how they built their skills the old-fashioned way.
We get into the full journey here and learn a lot about their style of marketing and who they really try to support and how they do it. It's more than just a marketing agency. It's really becoming a consultancy about business practices, supply chain, revenue enhancements, and product offerings.
Old Town Media is one of our anchor media companies here in Fort Collins. And I was really honored to spend this time with Val and Miles. We've been Rotarians and even exchange student hosts at the same time. So it was nice to reconnect with these two and you can hear that we're having fun.
So I hope you'll join in and listen and learn.
