Louisville, CO Business Owners


The Louisville Business Network is comprised of small business owners from throughout Boulder County and the Front Range Area. We meet each Thursday to exchange leads and participate in a 40 minute presentation or discussion. Each member will have the opportunity to give a 40 minute presentation to the group on a rotating basis, allowing us to get to know your specific specialties for good referrals.

Each Louisville Business Network meeting starts with a one minute commercial given by each member. Share exciting new updates or promotions happening within your company and learn about small business events happening throughout the community. The Louisville Business Network, unlike some other lead groups, doesn't require a certain amount of leads to be exchanged per quarter, guaranteeing that the new business leads you receive here will be high quality referrals.

The Louisville Business Network does guarantee exclusive representation per business category. (Meaning, only business from a particular category may be a member of the group. i.e. one Realtor in the group at a time, one CPA in the group at a time, etc.) To see what business categories are already represented in our group, browse the members on this page.

Michael Keilly

Louisville Business Network Boulder, ColoradoMICHAEL KEILLY

COMPANY: Michael Keilly Fiduciary Services, LLC

CATEGORY: Attorney and Fiduciary Services

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I moved to Colorado after a two week vacation at the age of 21. I fell in love with the people, landscape, and climate of Colorado and can hardly imagine living anywhere else. I enjoy traveling around Colorado and the Southwest.

Both when I travel and at home, I enjoy hiking, cross-country skiing, and cycling. I am also an avid nature photographer.

I have an undergraduate degree from St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico and a law degree from the University of Denver College of Law. During law school, I clerked for a small firm and continued on there and in my own office until 2001. In 2018, after almost 16 years running a successful restaurant, I decided to open a fiduciary practice (assisting people who are unable to manage their own affairs without help) and to return to the practice of law. I am able to use my legal training and my experience to help people manage their affairs and solve problems that have arisen in the legal arena, particularly with respect to estate planning.

Located in the heart of Downtown Boulder next to the Boulderado Hotel, our salon started in The Ember Hairstream, Colorado's first mobile hair salon specializing in weddings. The Ember Hairstream is a renovated 1977 vintage Airstream. Large enough to accommodate bridal parties and give a luxury salon experience wherever we may be, throughout Colorado. We do everything from off the grid mountain weddings to 5-star wedding venues.

We believe in continued education in the salon industry, as well as self-development and leadership courses for personal and professional growth.

We literally hand-tie, knot and sew the hair to completely match our clients hair. A truly unique skill that is not done anywhere else!

Anthony Riske

Louisville Business Network Boulder, Colorado ANTHONY RISKE, MA, MFT-C

COMPANY: Therapeutic Mentor Connection 

CATEGORY: Psychotherapy 

Over the last 12 years of working with people in wilderness therapy, residential treatment, and community-based support, I have been honored to work alongside others during difficult periods in their lives.  Whether backpacking, sitting down for coffee, or hosting a conversation in my office, the privilege of hearing their stories has gripped me—to an extent that it has become my life’s work. The stories that we live are so unique, and the way we express life from them, so defining. I believe the magic of therapy happens when who we imagine ourselves to be is witnessed without judgment, encouraged to live in a way we prefer, and/or challenged to adapt when others help us discover a better way.

I offer to sit with others as a therapist, a story-listener, and a friend. Services I enjoy providing are:

•In-office conversations

•Wilderness therapy experiences (individual or family)

•Storytelling interviews (video interviews to record the stories of your family’s legacy)

•Mentoring (therapeutic out-of-office meetups)

COMPANY: Market Real Estate

CATEGORY: Commercial Real Estate 

I am an enthusiastic, hard-working, entrepreneurial individual with a generous spirit and contagious zest for life. After running my own business for almost six years, I developed the stamina and grit it takes to meet any challenge put before me and creatively and successfully resolve every roadblock I may encounter. I've learned not only what it takes to be a boss, but more importantly what it takes to be an admired leader and team builder. Being a business owner taught me tirelessly to be patient, to overcome adversity, how to hone my interpersonal skills and the balance of juggling many things at once.

After living outside Colorado for the past six years and reaching the goals I had set for my business, I am ready to put roots back down in my home state and embark on a new career in real estate – something I have always has a keen eye toward precisely because it all empowers me to combine my boundless passion for people and for business.

Donald Spears


COMPANY: Whole Systems Healthcare Boulder Clinic

CATEGORY: Holistic/Naturopathic Medicine

Bringing Life to Healthcare: Hello, my name is Donald Spears and I am a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist. While I was trained as a primary care provider in the state of Oregon, I now practice medicine with an emphasis on health promotion through the holistic lenses provided by naturopathic and Chinese medicine.

Through my medical training, I read and decipher the imbalances within the body communicated through the constellation of signs and symptoms presented during times of dis-ease and by taking in the whole picture, a treatment plan is tailored to you as an individual, not your disease or condition. This is truly individualized medicine geared towards you in your totality and your humanness. After determining a treatment approach, I utilize minimally invasive modalities including diet, lifestyle changes, herbal medicine, acupuncture (including non-insertive needling), moxibustion and bodywork to guide you back to a state of health. I work with all types of people and particularly enjoy working with families. I am fully committed to serving you and our community in the restoration of health and sustained wellbeing.
