Hi Boris I echo the comments of our team. We all will continue to strive for better sales and market penetration. The so called competition cannot hold a candle to your product, company, and your vision!

Thanks for all the support you’ve given us.

Warm Regards

Boris and Ines,

Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with Scott, Grant and myself this afternoon! It was such a pleasure meeting you, Ines, as The American Dream book that Boris authored speaks so much about you. I am excited to share your generous gift of Plum Bourbon with my good wife, Debbie.

Thanks once again for the opportunity to get to know you and your amazing businesses!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Enjoyed the ride immensely and appreciated the opportunity.

Just noticed that you came to the US $12 richer than myself, with net worth of $25 and nothing else. In a way we have shared not only the journey of Cortec, but also the experience of growing up in a communistic regime and trying to make it as a new and penniless immigrant.

Above all the most treasurable is the friendship and brotherhood that have grown over the years, for which I'm very grateful. Thank you !

Warmest regards,


Snjezana Mikolic  @ 30/01/2017 11:01:18

I must admit that I am proud of You and what I'm part of the team Cortec Corporation!

Your trust and confidence in me means a great deal.

You have built an incredible world class company from virtually nothing.

And you are a man of integrity who stands by his principles.

You are a cherished client and good friend.

Thank you Boris.

Dear Mr. Boris and Ines,

I never take for granted the job I have and I am very thankful and I will do my best to keep up with the good work and to be even better.

Wish You Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Kind regards,

Boris and Ines, thank you so much for the Holiday bonus. I feel very fortunate to be working at Cortec. I wish you the best for the upcoming holiday season, and look forward to a productive and successful year in 2017.



Shannon Garrow  @ 08/12/2016 08:12:16

Boris & Ines,

Thank you so much for the bonus! What a great surprise and very much appreciated from me and my family.

I have loved working for Cortec for the past 10 years and I appreciate all you do to give back to not only the company, but the employees too.

Have a fabulous holiday! (Enjoy and rest some too – not so much work!)

Shannon, Jeff, Josh, & Kayla

Jessica Carpenter  @ 08/12/2016 08:12:18

Boris-Thank you for the Christmas bonus but even more than that, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to work for Cortec. Fourteen years ago I was putting myself through college as a single mom with three little kids making $15,000 a year. I am so incredibly blessed to be where I am today and it is because Cortec took a chance on me. I never take for granted the job I have or how fortunate I am. I am very thankful.

I hope you have a nice holiday!

Jill Pearson  @ 08/12/2016 08:12:32

Utterly brilliant. Thank you for sharing Boris.

Dear Mr. Miksic,

I hope this email finds you well. It was a pleasure to chat with you briefly earlier today at the University of Minnesota Law School.

As a recent immigrant from Albania, hearing about your story was inspiring, particularly due to the fact that you grew up in the Balkans, a region with a troubling past and yet untapped future potential. Your career path also spoke to me personally, as I, like you, aspire to become an entrepreneur and eventually would like to contribute to my homeland (and the region) in various capacities.

I hope we will have a chance to meet again in person in the near future. I would love to hear more about your success and challenges in your investments and any future plans you might have. And if you would like to chat about the history of the Balkans, Albanian politics or prospective investments in the region, I would be happy to share my thoughts.

Above all, I wanted to thank you for taking the time to talk to me. I deeply appreciate your kind gesture. I am sure you are fully aware from your previous experiences that as an immigrant from the Balkans, one does not get many chances to speak with other successful people.


Kathy Selbitschka  @ 24/11/2016 12:11:08

Hi Boris,

I would like to say thank you for the Cub gift card. I appreciate it and I know a lot of others do to.

Thanks again.

Meisner Robert  @ 21/11/2016 08:11:27
Dear Boris,

I finished reading your book. It was fascinating and makes me wish I would have met you earlier in my career. Congratulations on everything you have accomplished!
