Forging Your Mental Armor

January 16th, 2021

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, CO: Witness the Fitness

December 19th, 2020

If there’s one thing that residents of Boulder do well, it’s keep in shape! Boulder has regularly been ranked by Gallup and Healthways as the fittest metropolitan region in the United States, with just 12.4% of its residents considered overweight. Gallup and Healthways have been measuring obesity rates across the country since 2008 through the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, which surveys Americans’ self-reported height and weight to measure their Body Mass Index. In five of those six years, Boulder has taken the number one position for fitness (let’s just call 2009 a “cheat year”). On... Read More

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

November 26th, 2020

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

Ownership – The Only True Power

November 1st, 2020

“When you work for others, you are at their mercy. They own your work; they own you. Your creative spirit is squashed. What keeps you in such positions is a fear of having to sink or swim on your own. Instead you should have a greater fear of what will happen to you if you remain dependent on others for power. Your goal in every maneuver in life must be ownership, working the corner for yourself. When it is yours, it is yours to lose – you are more motivated, more creative, more alive. The ultimate power in life is to be completely self-reliant, completely yourself.” – Robert... Read More

6 Fall Hikes Around Boulder to See Aspen

October 16th, 2020

It is Fall! We are past Labor Day (usually the official end of summer), but we still have a few days until the Autumnal Equinox on September 23. I’d expect lots of warm days in Boulder to come, but in the mountains, it is really starting to feel like fall. Once the aspen trees start to turn its a narrow window of time to see the mountains shrouded in gold.  There’s several places a quick drive from Boulder to go check out the leaves. Many people simply drive around and then turn back. But not you! Use this list to do some serious leaf peeping around Boulder. Hessie Trailhead, Eldora,... Read More

It’s really not that sad or desperate. Getting something specifically sent to you feels awesome and let’s you know someone out there took the time to prepare the thing, send it, and now it’s here.

Entrepreneur – The Dirty Word That My Dad Hates

July 31st, 2020

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

Triathletes are weird, we know.

July 30th, 2020

“Click, clack, click, clack”.. You are standing in line at Amante Coffee and you peer behind and expect to see a horse, or maybe a girl in high heels. Actually maybe it is a tap dancer. You first look down  and notice glossy white shoes, high socks, and the most muscular legs you have ever seen on a chick. As you continue to gaze up you soon realize that this hairless girl is actually a transvestite! The perfectly smooth legs had you thinking one way, but the tight spandex shorts quickly revealed the other! You continue to scan upward and soon realize that this transvestite is actually... Read More

Ancient Grains but Modern Thinking: Purely Elizabeth Sets a Standard for More than Granola

July 6th, 2020

A kooky philosophy professor of mine used to refer to foods that were vegan, gluten free, and free of refined sugar as “morally pure”. Though he was being a bit silly and facetious, the word “purely” captures perfectly the ingredients, mission and values, and intentions of the now Boulder-based natural food company, Purely Elizabeth. In 2008, Elizabeth Stein was a nutrition student with a dream of opening a natural foods/nutrition company like Nucific and moving out west: the manifest destiny of someone hoping to change the game of healthy gluten-free, vegan foods forever.... Read More

Cheerful & Beer-Full at the Bohemian Biergarten

June 27th, 2020

Sunday’s can sometimes be a bit of a drag – a day to sleep in, run errands, and dread work the next morning. Therefore, when it comes to finding something fun on a Sunday night, the struggle is real. On Sunday nights the majority of Boulder is a quiet community nestled in the foot of the Flatirons. Little do we know, the Bohemian Biergarten is booming every Sunday night with their gut-busting Comedy Show. That’s right, the Bohemian Biergarten is turning those lazy days into Sunday Funday.

Dealing with Debt Stress: Tips to Help

March 27th, 2020

We all find ourselves needing to borrow money from time to time. For some of us, it’s all about tracking down the extra cash so we can afford to pay for things like vacations or new cars. For others, the loans that we take out will be designed for larger expenses, like getting a degree in our chosen field, or putting a deposit down on a home. Although debt can be a common thing in the modern world, problems often arise when we get into so much debt that we no longer know how to deal with it.

Big Beer Brings Protest to Mexicali

February 2nd, 2018

Water is a basic human right, correct? Even within our society’s divided climate, I think that is something we can all agree upon. No person should go without water. I mean, after all, an adult human body consists of about 60% water. It’s safe to say, we need it. Now, let me ask you another question: It’s not a shock to anyone that California, and southwestern states in general have been suffering from a drought, correct? So, why would Baja California be any different? Wouldn’t they be suffering from the same drought as us? The answer is, yes, they are suffering from severe drought, causing... Read More
