Discovering My Bold through Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt!

 

The Betties found me in my last term of college. That awkward point where you’re overqualified for half the jobs and under-qualified for the other half… I was feeling down on myself and insecure about my abilities for not landing the job. You know THE job. Ya, that one.

Snowshoeing, Winter Hikes and Finding Inner Peace

" Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread." – Edward Abbey

Along the trail, we made some John Muir quips, updated each other on our jobs, our boyfriends, and what we’re doing with our lives. But our longest discussion was how important our time in the wilderness was to us...

New Year Resolution Progress Report: Tubing My Bold Out

 

Being a mom of a four-year-old, super cute, super smart boy and being an entrepreneur leaves little room for extracurricular activities.  I do my best to uphold my new-year resolutions: take the stairs instead of the elevator, do yoga, run, walk, jump, hike, etc. But I have to admit, I had yet to do anything BOLD.  Until this past Sunday!  My family and I were at the #DevilsThumbRanch for the weekend.  We rode horses, fed them, hiked in snow and enjoyed the beauties of the ranch and the surroundings.  But I must admit, it wasn't until I decided to snow-tube (this is after years of not having done it) in a child-size tube, that I remembered how much fun it is to face your fears and to re#DiscoverYourBold.  Okay, I know, you are probably thinking that is not much of anything.  Well, okay, maybe!  But for me, letting myself be completely out of control (I am usually calm, cool and collected) and looking like a novice in tubing of all things was BOLD!  And Fun!

And hence, we will be offering Snow Tubing experiences on our site, inviting all of you to Tube Your Bold Out!  Stay tuned!

2016: A Bold Year in Review

For most of my adult life the holidays have been tough time of year, and I tend to have moments where I am sad and go down a negative path, feeling stuck or at least not where I thought I would be at this point in my life. But the end of the year is also a great time for reflection, gratitude and an opportunity to recognize the awesome events that have happened over the last few months.

Got Ready...#DiscoverYourBold Weekend!

Few months back, I had booked a weekend out in Escalante, Utah for Excursions of Escalante Canyoneering Rendezvous. Few days before trip, flooded with excuses to not want to go; exhaustion from week, opportunity to hang with friends, pro/cons to cost/fun ratio and truthfully, an introvert like myself, having to turn on to a group of strangers, is always an endeavor.

Bold Meets FitLo! Wait, What?!

By Arezou Zarafshan

Back in the month of November, I was doing my daily (or rather nightly) social media stalking.  All CMO's do that and if they tell you they don't, they either are lying or they don't know how to do their jobs!  I stumbled upon FitLo Denver's Facebook page and I was intrigued.

The Hike that Wasn't

The Kindness of Strangers

After a week in different national parks, what I loved the most was being reminded that the outdoor community is so open and welcoming. My travels were filled with random conversations, temporarily hiking buddies, campsite mates and tour guides. Read Full Article Here →
