February 14th, 2024

  The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, based in Missouri, found that Boulder Colorado had the highest density of start-up companies per capita in the United States.

Here are five important benefits of buying locally: Economic Stability            ... 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

Snakes and Stallions – Boulders Shelby Car Museum!

April 23rd, 2023

I’m not a gearhead. I don’t know how most systems work in my car. Checking tire pressure, and maybe replacing a fuse or headlight bulb, is about as hands-on as is possible. I know of the internal combustion engine’s work, but couldn’t tell you much about it. Growing up and beyond, cars never interested me all that much (see also: complicated board games, the heaviest/ deathiest of heavy/ death metal, and reality TV). But as with anything, whether or not I generally like it, there’s always the possibility for change. Sometimes all it takes is the right situation, or person, or example... Read More
