Leaders with a Mentor Mindset believe that going it alone and not asking for help is a sign of arrogance and that asking for help is a sign of strength. They ask those they lead for help in an authentic, honest and open way modeling the courage it takes so others can do the same.

Spending time running, working out,  skiing, and learning bring me joy.

What a great store. The owners and staff are extremely knowledgeable. Whether you are looking for yourself or for gifts, the staff is patient and informative and will help you get exactly what you want. The oil and the vinegar products are superior to anything I have ever experienced. I give their product as personal and business gifts and they are always a hit.

Scott, Barbi and the rest of the highly trained and qualified staff at Real Life Fitness do a fantastic job of tailoring your workout regimen that will get you the results you are looking for. I have been with them almost two years and have seen dramatic results in my physique, endurance, and strength. I went from not being competitive in 5K runs to winning medals in the 5K and even 10K in local GrandPrix series races. At 47, I am in the best shape of my life because of the expertise RLF provides.

The Grass Valley Courtyard Suites is a wonderful venue for professional gatherings. The staff is very attentive, professional and kind. The accomodations are very comfortable and enjoyable. The location is amazing as it located only a short walk to several great restaurants. The room accomodations are wonderfully appointed and refreshing. Be sure to check out the day spa as well. Very nice!

I love the support I get when I go into Hills Flat Lumber. No matter what project I’m working on, the helpful staff at HFL always has a solution. The great thing is they help me think through the project to make sure I get all that I need the first time so I don’t have to keep running back and forth.

Jerry and his team are second to none. There is no need to go down the hill to look at cars and experience high pressure. Keep the business local and the experience enjoyable. Jerry helped us find the perfect car for our needs well below our budget. He can do the same for you. Make Sierra Auto your first stop when looking for your next car.
