We had the good fortune of connecting with Mel Bernstein and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Mel, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I took a big risk moving to Colorado from New York and put all my money into my business. I figured, if I don’t try it, I’ll never know if it will work. I didn’t want to live with regret.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Hard work pays off. You have to set your goal and work hard to meet it. Always think big. I went way past my expectations. I’d say this contributed to spending a very large percentage of my time to working.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite places in Colorado include Garden of the Gods, antique store (Willowstone) and to Mollica’s Italian Restaurant.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My late wife, Terry. If it’s wasn’t for her, Id have nothing. My daughter, Melissa, also helps me now, and she’s a huge contributor to my ongoing success.
