Meet the Team :: Donna McCullough

Donna is a recent transplant from Kansas City, still sometimes travelling back and forth. This woman is one of the most gentle, caring, good-hearted people you can meet.  On her spare time, she enjoys live music, jewelry making, ceramic arts, and just about any type of art therapy!  She's also in love with Tiny Houses at the moment and the rest of us truly believe she'll take the leap one day!

Meet the Team :: Fred Mahe

Fred has over twenty years experience in the flag business. Fred is a constant source of energy. His presence not only lifts the spirit of his clients but the people he works with. During his free time you can find him skiing, biking, hiking, volunteering at church, influencing a Scout or spending time with his grandchildren. He really knows how to celebrate a birthday…no not cake but by taking a 75 mile bike ride.

How would you describe your job to a child?
I get to sell symbols of Patriotism, mainly the flag of our country, The Stars and Stripes, or perhaps for the State of Colorado or other states and even for our sports teams, like the Broncos.   I get to meet new people every day to talk to them about their flag or flagpole.   My job is fun and I really enjoy it. 

What is your motto or personal mantra?
Be true unto oneself

What’s your favorite line from a film?
Not sure but it would have to come from John Wayne!!    

What phone app can you not do without?
The weather, how boring     

What’s the most important lesson you learned in the last year?
Not just in the last year but my most important lesson was confirmed again last year, one needs to give others a hand when they need it, not when it is convenient to you.  How many times has one saw a situation where you knew you have the abilities to be in assistance in some way to help solve at least some of the problem but “You were too busy” or “Some one should help them”  or “They do not look good, dirty clothes or hair messed up or something is not right” or….   You get the picture     You feel better if you ahead and throw those thoughts out, jump in and give a hand.

What’s your ‘focus word’ this year and how are you implementing it?
Trust

Anything exciting you want to share with our readers?
Life is fun, be sure to enjoy all of it, work, relaxing, reading a book, talking with special people and attempt to be a special person to many.

Meet the Team :: Scott Donze

Scott has lived in Colorado all of his life.  He has over twenty years’ experience in oil and gas accounting and has worked for Custom Flag Company for the past couple of years. Scott would tell you accounting is a boring and thankless job, but working for Custom Flag Company is enjoyable and fulfilling because of the people where growth, teamwork, fitness, fun and friendship are promoted. Scott has known Kim for over 30 years (he is married to Kim’s sister). Scott, his wife and two boys (both Boy Scouts) enjoy the Broncos, traveling, hiking, biking, camping, and working out.       

How would you describe your job to a child?
I count candy and the only thing better than candy is more candy.  (What an accountant does)

What is your motto or personal mantra?
Live like you were dying(Tim McGraw).  I don’t like to pass up a chance to have fun or do something different. 

What’s your favorite line from a film?
“Why don’t you kiss her instead of talking her to death?  You want me to kiss her, huh?  Aaah, youth is wasted on the wrong people!!!”-It’s a Wonderful Life

What phone app can you not do without?
If it weren’t for the google app, my phone would be a brick in my pocket and I would appear half as smart as I am.

What’s the most important lesson you learned in the last year?
I am still learning.

What’s your ‘focus word’ this year and how are you implementing it?
Joy, a word describing the feeling one experiences when accomplishing something of great importance.  (My definition) I try to treat everything I do as if it were of great importance, even if it is counting candy.

Anything exciting you want to share with our readers?
I love to watch the Amazing Race, The Walking Dead, Myth Busters and anything on the Science or Discovery channels.  I also like to travel, ride bikes and eat out with family and friends.
