Finding a Helping Hand on Pearl Street

June 11th, 2017

A few weeks ago, I was having dinner with a couple friends on Pearl Street.   As we were enjoying our meal, we started discussing this blog and some of the dispensaries I should check out – both in Boulder and others in the State.   We decided right then and there, after eating, we’d check out Helping Hand Dispensary which is located on Pearl between 10th and 11th. I’ll be honest, I’ve passed this dispensary a few times and never really given it much thought.  I had never gone in before or looked it up online, so walking in I had no preconceived notions at all.   My first instincts... Read More

The Unseen Bean, Against the Odds

March 21st, 2016

We’ve all been in a scenario where someone didn’t believe we could accomplish something, so we proved them wrong. That’s exactly what Gerry Leary did when he founded The Unseen Bean in Boulder in 2007. The Unseen Bean strives to serve the freshest, best-tasting coffee available anywhere, and it is roasted by Leary, who has been blind since birth. Of course he was met with doubt when he traded in his work as a blind car mechanic to pursue his dream of becoming a Master Coffee Roaster. But Leary beat the odds and proved his doubters wrong. It wasn’t the easiest of paths. Leary went to every... Read More

The Boulder Startup Boom: A Collaborative Approach

October 13th, 2015

Boulder, Colorado – Most come to hike the Flatirons, saunter down Pearl Street for a bite to eat or simply bathe in the reverent beauty that is, Boulder, Colorado. Originally, that is why I came. The aesthetic pleasure of Boulder drew me in, so in 2011 I decided to move here, attend the University of Colorado at Boulder and pursue a degree in Economics. I soon realized that beauty, or any aesthetic pleasure for that reason, just was not enough to hold me in one place. I thought about leaving time and time again, and then one day, I gave myself a reason to stay. I stayed because of the... Read More

Inspiring Fitness at Inspired Athletic Movement

March 24th, 2015

In a health-conscious city packed with elite athletes, a regular visit to the gym can quickly turn into an intimidating event as you suffer through a grueling Spin class next to an Olympic triathlete who’s barely glistening after her ‘rest day’ workout. For some, this can be inspiring, but for others, this can be the final straw in ending their workouts for good. But before you throw in the figurative sweat towel, maybe it’s time to try one more place—a quiet facility that’s clean and open—a gym where you’ll be encouraged to work your way to the best shape of your life, but without... Read More

A Social Media Policy Change for Small Businesses: Facebook will change the way you promote in 2015

December 2nd, 2014

Facebook has changed policies for the 2015 year and it’s going to adjust how your business promotes, advertises, and produces content for your page. On my own business pages, I’ve noticed that my engagement has really taken a turn downwards from recently having some of my heaviest engagement, via efficient organic strategies, in a long while. And it’s not because my strategies have been failing, but that Facebook is allowing way, way less promotional posts to reach consumer users. Here is what Facebook had to say:  “As part of an ongoing survey, we asked hundreds of thousands of... Read More

Rush Bowls: Healthy On The Go!

September 20th, 2014

More and more it seems that Boulder is at the forefront of innovation and business, particularly in the food industry. With the likes of Justin’s Peanut Butter, Horizon’s Milk, and Udi’s Gluten-Free, Boulder has sparked something of a natural food’s revolution. Joining that pack is Boulder favorite, Rush Bowls! The Hill staple is no longer just a place for sorority girls to get their post-yoga smoothies or for students to grab a bowl between classes. Since opening 10 years ago, Rush Bowls’ popularity has allowed them to package grab-n-go bowls available in stores across... Read More
