Eh, the pot angle is overrated. Denver's a hotbed for startups. Additionally the insurance, financial, telecom, and government sectors are on fire right now.

I heard Denver is a easy place to get a job in healthcare but I know Florida and Arizona are by far the easiest because so many baby boomers are retiring to those states.

I don't know if anybody has noticed but Charles Schwab just built a giant campus off of Lincoln not too far from Sky Ridge hospital. At first there were only two buildings but they are constructing a third. I heard they are doing this because they are moving employees out from San Francisco. Now I don't know if that is true but I have heard from a couple of sources.

By the amount of construction I see around the entire Denver Metro area tells me it is booming here.

I know Dallas is hoping they'll get Schwab, but based on the huge investment Schwab made in the Lone Tree campus, Denver has the edge.

Not overrated.
Lot of new businesses are opening up including the medicinal angle of pot.
More people coming in for pot, more families moving in for their sick kids that pot oil helps.
Growth in one sector increases growth overall and pot is growing like mushroom.
Denver was hot before but it's on fire now.

Nothing about employees moving from San Francisco.

There is a caveat to some of these people moving here for the pot industry. The young unemployed that move here for legalized pot. Other than that I agree with you.

They haven't made any official announcements yet, but when they do it won't surprise me if they come here.
