We had the good fortune of connecting with Brent Fletcher and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brent, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I have always believed that we are presented with two options, security or opportunity, and both take a 40+ hour work week. It is no secret that starting a business is a risk and a risk that I needed to take if I was to grow as a person. But I am also a father, and I could not risk my children’s security. So, for me, to take the risk of starting a business, I had to keep my previous job and that meant working 80-100 hours a week. Risk is opportunity, but just because there is opportunity, does not always mean you can risk everything. You have to be smart about it, and great opportunity requires great effort. There are no shortcuts.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I believe what sets me apart from other home inspectors is my willingness to go above and beyond for my clients and colleagues, as well as my thoroughness and attention to detail. I am most proud of building a business that helps individuals better themselves by investing in their own wealth, and therefore helps my community thrive. It was not easy to get where I am, and it’s not easy to get where I want to go. Great opportunity cannot be had without great effort. I was able to overcome challenges by believing in myself and my abilities, by setting goals and taking the steps to achieve them, and by the love and support of my family, who continue to give me motivation to keep going. I have learned that fostering organic relationships is one of the most important ways to build trust within the community. I want the world to know that Fletcher’s Home Inspections, LLC represents integrity, accuracy, and giving back to the community.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love the outdoors, and enjoying sharing the beauty of Colorado with everyone. I would take them camping at Pingree Park, or maybe on a hike to the iconic Horsetooth. I also love to support local, and would bring them to my favorite coffee spots like Harbinger or Alley Cat. I’m a big foodie as well, and would take them out to wine and dine at my go-to hangouts, such as Hearth in Windsor, Choice City Butcher & Deli or The Welsh Rabbit in Fort Collins. And of course, no good trip to Northern Colorado is complete without some beer tasting at Odell Brewery, Horse & Dragon, or Maxline.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My Parents. Although my father passed away when I was 9, his hard work always shined and he taught me the value of a job well done. After his passing, my mother and grandparents stepped up, always going above and beyond to give me a great childhood. Although it was not without hardship, I was taught the value of a dollar and the value of family that you can’t put a price on.
