We had the good fortune of connecting with Abby Schissler and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Abby, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
My end goal is to make a big impact on my community and for the guests that we host. I believe we already do make a lasting impression on our guests as they are coming to us to celebrate huge life-cycle events. By the end of my career, I hope that I am remembered for having a generous heart and providing a space to bring people together to connect and get back to what matters. Our big goal that gives us momentum to move forward is to live a 50/50 lifestyle. We want to live off of 50% and give 50% back to the community.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Bella Vista Estate is a private oasis where we host groups of up to 28 at a time, specializing in weddings, retreats and reunions. We are a limited-edition property with one of the most breathtaking views in all of Colorado. The uniqueness of Bella Vista is that it is a completely private, gated Estate where there are 3 different homes in which to spread out amongst, a tennis court, in-ground heated pool, and attention to detail that is second to none.
It has not been easy to create what we have, but it’s been well worth it! It is such a special place where you feel the beauty all around you as soon as you step on property!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well of course we would stay at Bella Vista Estate! We would spend the first night relaxing and enjoying the pool, grotto, and the view. The next morning, we would hike to the upper Fish Creek Falls and then have brunch at Winona’s. After that we’d come back to Bella Vista for yard games, pool time, and cooking out on the back patio. We would spend our last morning at Strawberry Park Hot Springs and then shop downtown!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
God deserves all the recognition! What He has allowed us to create up at Bella Vista is magnificent. The views are unbelievable, which have nothing to do with what we do, but what He has created. Our job is to just be the good stewards of the land and property we’ve been blessed with. Dedicating everything back to God has given us the drive to keep pushing forward!
