Maxie: Unlock Your Brilliance

A little over a year ago I had my first phone conversation with Maxie McCoy about launching Local Levo Denver. I happen to know the exact date because I was so jazzed afterwards that I wrote about it in my five year daily gratitude journal. But that’s just what Maxie does, who she is – she uses her own surplus of positive energy to energize those around her. As she once said herself:
