Five Benefits of Buying Locally

September 12th, 2023

Throughout Colorado and the United States, there has been an ongoing economic movement away from corporate channels of distribution, and towards local businesses; as a result, the small, locally owned business is experiencing a sort of 21st Century renaissance. By operating on economies of scale, corporations are able to offer lower prices, but in a city such as Boulder, where household income is well above the national average, the benefits of buying locally vastly outweigh the comparatively minimal price differences. Here are five important benefits of buying locally: Economic Stability            ... Read More

Entrepreneur – The Dirty Word That My Dad Hates

July 28th, 2023

A true entrepreneur is not just somebody who doesn’t like to work for others. It is somebody who has a burning desire to create new systems and build upon existing ones. An entrepreneur is always thinking of ways to improve everything they come in contact with. Successful entrepreneurs have a part of them that is extremely lazy. This laziness is what causes them to relentlessly think of new ways to make things easier on everybody. They are obsessive problem-solvers; they see every challenge as an opportunity to show people a better way of doing something. The typical office environment drives... Read More

Forging Your Mental Armor

July 22nd, 2023

Your Mental Armor is a positive attitude. Your attitude is the one thing you always have complete and total control over. Your attitude dictates your response to every situation. If you have a positive attitude, you create opportunities. If you have a negative attitude, you create excuses and more unfavorable situations. Building a positive attitude can withstand any, and all, circumstances. It is an invincibility. It is your armor. It will protect you from negativity. You will never become a victim of circumstance. Opportunities will find you because you are always looking up and looking forward.... Read More

Boulder marketing pro tests AI writing tools

June 27th, 2023

Four Artificial Intelligence writing tools tested with one prompt As a marketing professional, I spend a lot of time writing and have written many quality bios in my time. The thing is, I really hate writing bios for myself. It’s hard to talk about yourself. That’s why clients like us to write for them. We’ve been testing Artificial Intelligence lately so I thought I would do a simple test writing an author’s bio, based on a simple bio I wrote. I left in a couple of typos and some sentences I didn’t love, just to see what it would do. In this test, I only used the free versions.  I also... Read More

FLASHBACK: From Boulder High Music Teacher to Award Winning Beer Entrepreneur

June 21st, 2023

Inspiration can connect the most far-fetched or opposite ideas and come from the most unlikely of places. To give it further jolt, necessity is indeed the mother of invention. Put the two together and see what curious results give light. So, let’s play a little trivia. What do Boulder High School and beer brewing have in common? No, I’m not talking about teenage alcoholism so cross that snarky answer off the list. What they do both have in common are some interesting ties through both historical and modern day Boulder in a unique way: Crystal Springs Brewing Company. Some people search their... Read More

Thanksgiving Food for Thought: When is Bigger Not Actually Better?

November 23rd, 2022

Thanksgiving has come to be known as the great American day of indulgence: a day of over-eating, over-sharing and over-spending on Black Friday deals- like that shockingly discounted cooler or that 72-inch flat-screen TV complete with a mail-in rebate. We, the people, have taken our constitutionally granted liberty to take Thanksgiving as the seminal day to relax, spend time with family, and be grateful for all of the excess and privilege we have in our lives. Being grateful is undoubtedly a good thing for our mental and emotional well-being and so is having a holiday that gives us an excuse to... Read More

2015 – FLASHBACK: Boulder-Born Bobo’s Oat Bars Goes Big, Stays Big

February 15th, 2022

“Bobo’s Oat Bars are very moist and delicious. When people hear that they are gluten free and vegan that do not expect to have such a tasty product. Most granola bars are crunchy, but not Bobo’s!” Organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, and fit for athletes… ok Boulder people this one is definitely for you. This week’s budding Boulder business is Bobo’s Oat Bars. Actually Bobo’s is not so “budding” because they are currently ranked No. 2 in the United States behind Kind Bar, and are sold across the country, even into the far-off other country up north (Canada…). You... Read More

Boulder Book Store: The Unbeatable Brick and Mortar

February 14th, 2022

Watch out online retailers: you can’t beat this brick and mortar bookstore. Open since 1973, this three-story powerhouse is a Pearl Street Mall staple and neighborhood icon. The minimalist exterior (the sign outside the store is a testament to directness: written in chunky caps, the word “BOOKSTORE,” hovers above black gridded windows) differs from the garish, if somewhat outlandish interior. For one, the bookstore is enormous; it boasts three fully-stocked stories of books, videos, and gadgets, with each floor offering a different layout and atmosphere. “The Ballroom,” Photo... Read More

Pearl Street’s Rocket Fizz: Your Golden Ticket to Wonka in America’s Healthiest City

February 1st, 2022

In the health-conscious city of Boulder, Rocket Fizz, the soda pop and candy shop located in the heart of Pearl Street Mall, acts as a respite for the sugar-cravers and diet-cheats. To the window shopping pedestrian, the store is unmistakable. From the street, a life-sized Spiderman sculpture beckons you into the store, his wrists poised to shoot webbing at any moment. The large window front hints at the kitsch inside, displaying cardboard cutouts of pop culture figures and retro posters. But the most luring feature is by far the variety of candy and soda inside. The store’s interior is nothing... Read More

Top 3 Highest Rated Boulder, CO Restaurants

January 22nd, 2022

In Boulder, good food is always within arms reach. The Boulder County Farmers Market is among the best in the nation, offering locally grown vegetables, fruits, cheeses, and wine to the city’s farm to table restaurants. This, in combination with Boulder’s proclivity towards environmentalism and health, creates a demand for fresh yet tasty meals at the city’s restaurants, with non-GMO, gluten free, and vegan options for the health conscientious. With nearly 600 restaurants to choose from in Boulder, it’s hard to narrow down which eateries yield the best food and flavor. To help you decide,... Read More
