The best thing about Health Food stores in Denver is the collection of weirdos that work and shop at them. They’re snobby and sweet, facial tatted and obese. From all walks of life this disparate tribe of characters share one common thread: they care a bit more about their diet then the rest of us. Are you a greenie weenie that’s new in town? Here’s a breakdown of the Natural Food stores you ‘ll find around here. I hope you like stereotypes:
Fancy Mustache Guy
Your spot: Vitamin Cottage
Vitamin Cottage has strict standards to keep you healthy. No energy drinks and no conventional veggies Of course they also sell plenty of junk food and caffeine. Perfect, hypocracy is your middle name! You’re a raw vegan (except liquor and vintage boots) and a you’re not vaccinating your kids (you were fully vaccinated). You’re telling me chem-trails are going to give my kids autism with a cigarette hanging from your mouth? I love you for that.
Your purchase: Bulk cashew/ carob chip power bars. Enough calories to feed you for a month.

Having several interests, ideas and ways to make a living used to be seen as scattered, unprofessional and kooky. Jack of all trades and master of NONE is how the old adage goes. In reality, it’s these traits that were common strengths for many entrepreneurs, but people didn’t often see the connection until the person was “successful.”As that judgment fades into the twilight, a new, more dynamic idea of what it means to make a living for yourself continues to emerge. This new and evolved version of the entrepreneur has the same level of passion and chutzpah – but completely different challenges to navigate in the modern age.The true beauty of this shift in consciousness is how people view and create a “career”, and there are more of us coming forward. We blow past the idea of the one-track-mind and feel freer to explore passions, ideas and seek out collaborations that speak to our hearts and minds, while throwing in the practical tools and right connections to make it all work.Click HERE to read more.
To be alive means you have some idea of what you want to happen in your life. It may not be specific, clear or super mind-blowing at this exact moment, but you have hopes and dreams you want to come to fruition in some shape or form. What you may not realize out right is when the “mind goblins” throw on the brakes, because it’s not always obvious.
I think I can best illustrate my point with a true story that involves cars, racing and me being really clueless.
I dated a guy for a short period of time that owned a race Porsche – a 1972 911 to be exact. It was not street legal and he raced in on it on local race tracks as well as in other racing events nationwide. After a few weeks of dating, he asked me if I wanted to drive it as part of a “ladies day” at the race track. I would be paired with an official racing instructor and race against other ladies on a road rally track. For you non-racers out there, that is a diverse track with lots of twists, turns and curves, not a Nascar track shaped as an oval.
Unbeknownst to him, driving a Porsche was on my rudimentary bucket list. And my first response to his amazing and generous offer? I tried to talk him out of it – several times. Seriously.

Previously we examined the turbulent past of the modern music industry. From here on out we’ll be looking at where the music industry is now and what might happen to it in the future.
In the late 70s a new form of rock and roll came roaring into public consciousness. Punk Rock was spearheaded by the Sex Pistols in Great Britain and the Ramones in the United States. Punk reshaped how people felt not only about music but about the music industry. The Sex Pistols’ snide song “EMI” tells us that “blind acceptance is a sign of stupid fools who stand in line.” Youth all over the world agreed with Sid Vicious’ scathing indictment of the corporate music machine.
