My Black City Is Used By Change Makers Across Industries
Ronnie started in the auto industry in 1993 – selling cars at a dealership in Minnesota. After 5 years he realized he wanted to offer his clients something more… He really wanted to offer a solution to people’s needs instead of selling them a car that day. Becoming a broker has given him the opportunity to be unbiased about any car, and helpful to people.
In 1998 Ronnie joined AutoSearch USA, and eventually bought the Southern Colorado franchise in 2007. “I love what I do! I like to help people, and I am looking forward to helping you!”

Why Did You Start My Black City?
We often worry that we don’t have enough resources in our community to go around. When we see someone in our community doing what we do but better, we get a little nervous or intimidated. Instead of using competition to spur on our creativity, teamwork, work ethic and innovation, we become soo overwhelmed with our own fears and insecurities that we gossip, sabotage, or hurt one another. This has happened to many exceptional people in our community. We need to do better and lead by example. Our love for each other needs to be greater than our fear of failure.
If we had to simplify into one word what My Black Colorado is about, it would be LOVE! Because Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
When people come in contact with our brand, that’s what I want them to experience. It‘s not an easy aspiration to live up to, but we believe it‘s worth fighting for and it‘s what we need as a community.
