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

Hi Tony, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I believe risk is a part of life. We are born with the “Flight or Fight” response imbedded so deep most people don’t even know it exists. Looking at risks from all sides (if I have time) determines the level of risk I take. If I can live with the best outcome and the worst, it is a risk I will take every time! That being said, some of the risks I have taken have backfired, but many have produced results greater than I could have imagined. Marriage, children, and starting my business over from scratch have all paid off in more than monetary gains.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I own and operate a Screen Printing, Embroidery and Graphic Design Company – Colorado Custom Screen Printing & Design. We specialize in graphic design, screen printing and direct to garment printing. We specialize in high definition printing in both bulk and individual orders. We are the only large company to offer single garment orders, as well as customer supplied garments for decoration in DTG, Screen Printing or Embroidery. When other companies give minimums, we offer solutions! All of our equipment is under 2 years old, and kept in pristine working conditions. We also offer a store front for browsing and shopping. We also offer world wide shipping. Our products are in UAE, Baghdad, Maldives, Honduras and England!!

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 parents, my wife’s parents, and my wife and kids get a lot of the credit!! Besides time, monetary contributions and a ton of patience, they have all shown me what is most important, family.
