Westword’s Best Denver Podcast, 2018!

About

PROCO360 is a brand derived from a branding exercise I did with the team at TEEM in Boulder. “Pro-CO” is a shorter, snappier version of what I’ve been calling the radio show, “Pro-Business Colorado.” 360 reflects the notion that those of use who, now my tagline, “Live – Work – Love Colorado,” tend to live life with a more multidimensional spirit. Yes, we work HARD and long so it’s not really a “work-life balance” thing. Some days you just get the view from your office, others its a bike ride and beer with a client. Whatever, every day there’s this underlying, constant satisfaction that we “LIVE – WORK – LOVE Colorado.”

DAVE TABOR

Host, Executive, Entrepreneur, Moderator & Speaker

A former technology entrepreneur, and currently an executive at the state chamber of commerce, I work with business leaders who love Colorado, who are focused on innovation, partnering, and providing opportunities for employees to advance and achieve their dreams.

In the 1920’s my great grandfather came from Europe as a tailor, built a business, and created future for his family, and for me. His story is a story about free enterprise – not the free enterprise that has been under attack because of the few who have built their wealth at the expense of others – I mean the system by which ambitious entrepreneurs can take risk, apply creativity, and doggedly overcome obstacles to achieve their vision and create opportunities for their communities – virtuous free enterprise.

I’ve tried to follow in my family footsteps. In my past, I’ve mortgaged my house to make payroll and worked over 100 hours a week building a business. Now, in a different role, I’m not shy about it – I get JAZZED knowing and speaking with virtuous world-class entrepreneurs and business leaders who could be successful anywhere and choose Colorado! As a younger man, as mascot, I was a super fan of the Denver Broncos. Now, in this endeavor I’m a super fan for Colorado business. I hope you’ll join me.

The views on this website, on my show, and otherwise associated with PROCO360 are mine and not necessarily those of the state chamber of commerce.

About the Show

Pro-Business Colorado

Pro-Business Colorado with Dave Tabor is a show about SPIRIT, the spirit of opportunity created by people who could be successful anywhere, and CHOOSE to start and grow businesses here in Colorado.

It’s different here in Colorado – whether it’s having a business meeting during a bike ride or the special kind of collaboration that goes on here, ProCO360 features dynamic people with interesting businesses, and with subject matter experts who GET that Colorado is special. All my guests are people who inspire me, and who can inspire you, and offer ideas to help us succeed in business.

Dave’s Reading List

I love to read. Actually, I love to listen! I’m a big fan of Audible.com – perhaps one day they’ll be a sponsor of this show. In my interviews, I often play Audible book clips that I find inspiring, instructive or thought provoking as a way to generate deeper conversation with my guests.

If you’re wondering about copyright laws, Audible encourages sharing of clips up to 90 seconds, so I think I’m in bounds, actually helping them and the authors!

Here are some of the books I have listened to and enjoyed! Do you want to recommend one? Please make a suggestion to Dave, Dave at PROCO360 dot com

Can’t Hurt Me, by David Goggins

OMG – David Goggins takes mental toughness to a whole new level. I’m fascinated by this book and it is definitely entertaining. Goggins is helping me rethink past decision I’ve made when faced with adversity, and how I might make them going forward. He’s one of a kind so much so, that I’m asking myself how to apply his principles when I know I don’t want to pursue extremely painful physical challenges (read the book) in order to expand my capabilities. His theme: you can do WAY more than you think if you “callous your mind” against pain and doubt. It’s a strong message.
