We had the good fortune of connecting with Mario y Gladis Garcia and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mario y Gladis, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
The balance is very important for sure! but sometimes we can’t keep it. As a new entrepreneurs is not easy because we need to learn how to divide our time in family, home, fun, and our dream. It sounds like a piece of cake but keeping the balance is serious work!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We are true dreamers and we like to work to achieve our goals. We consider that the key is to believe in each other. When the situation is difficult, we always talk and support each other in such a way that we come back with more strength. We are professionals with administrative and operational knowledge with more than 30 years of experience in different fields from the design of fedora hats but with confidence in our capabilities, our passion in our dreams and the desire to establish a local brand that represents us. It is not an easy task but when we feel overwhelmed, we always remind ourselves why we decided to start this beautiful journey called “Urban Hats by Avon Co.”

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?
Avon is a magical place to visit at any time of the year, it is beautiful! We can visit the lake and enjoy an outdoor activity, hiking, biking, camping, enjoying a delicious meal in the delicious restaurants or simply having a drink and enjoying a musical band. Additionally we have neighboring towns such as Vail, Edwards, Eagle and Gypsum to name a few and each one gives us options like the ones we named above.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Avon is a magical town without a doubt, it is a great place to grow our childrens, have our family safe, have a better life, and it is definitely a beautiful place at any time of the year. We believe that the people who live here, who work here, who dream here are the ones who create all that magic, that is why we decided to make a small tribute by naming our brand as “Urban Hats by Avon Co.” also as part of our gratitude we like to support our community whenever possible. So our tribute is dedicated to Avon Colorado.
