We had the good fortune of connecting with Dan Koogler and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dan, how do you think about risk?
Risk taking to me is a part of life. I have taken a risk in every turn from the military to owning my own business. Calculating the risk based on where you are at in your life is very important. For me, risk is necessary for me and my family to be able to live where we want and how we want. But I always am prepared for the risk to not work out.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My business TS Labs is a Marijuana Infused Product Manufacturer out of Denver Colorado. We focus on quality and not quantity, so we do solventless extractions, which is chemical free, to produce an ultra-clean product. We are very thorough when buying our plant material, to ensure our finished product is above and beyond Colorado standards. What sets us a part is our attention to detail and our quality standards. Getting to where I am currently in our business has not been easy during a pandemic. Luckily we budgeted carefully before opening this business. I have learned many things along the way that we will use to help us in the future.
I want people to know we are a small veteran owned family business, making a clean product for Colorado. We are pushing the limits of the marijuana industry and will continue to do it.

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 moved to Colorado for the ski resorts, so I would have to take them to Breckenridge or Vail and stay out there for a couple days. But back in Denver I would take them to Dos Santos, Ohana Grille, and catch a show at Comedy Works.

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?
My family has helped me and pushed me to go after what I want in life.
