In this week’s video, I interview my friend and colleague, Brent Weaver of where we share small business branding tips for entrepreneurs and small businesses.


Brent started creating websites around 15 years of age and never stopped. Brent spent the first 12 years of his professional career growing HotPress Web into one of the most successful website agencies in Denver. He worked with some of the top businesses and non-profits in the state creating websites and online marketing campaigns.

In 2012, he sold his agency to another Denver superstar, Phil Lockwood at Distill, so he could focus his energy on creating products to help web designer pros become more profitable. In November of 2012, he founded this site, to realize this vision.

Before he sold his agency, in 2009, he created a site dedicated to helping Business Catalyst professionals be more profitable. Starting as just a blog, this site today has helped thousands of BC professionals from around. BC Gurus is now operated by uGurus.

Over the years, Brent has used his experience to help other web designers. He spends some of his time continuing to consult 1-on-1 with web entrepreneurs in the early to mid stage of their journey.

Brent’s primary focus for uGurus is content development, expanding our contributor network, and finding partners to do joint ventures.

In his spare time, he actively enjoys being involved in the Denver community volunteering with the Cunningham Foundation, former Board President of Ethiopia Reads, teaching Junior Achievement classes to local high school students and is a graduate of the Denver Leadership Foundation’s 2010 Impact Denver class.
