Sometimes you find yourself and your inner strength in the oddest places – for example a dude ranch.
When people asked me how I got to Colorado, the snarky answer is “Well, I drove over 2,000 miles.” The short, non-snarky answer is “a bad break-up.”
While this is an over simplification, let me try to explain where I was emotionally before I decided to quit my well-paying professional job in Boston to go work a summer...
Yeah, yeah…we know. Resolutions Shmesolutions. We sort of wondered how many people stayed inside on this Colorado snow day and got obliterated on old wine since they have all been on the wagon for a month.
Or maybe you’ve been Planet Orange-ing Fitness Theorizing or whatever. (Patience, Regulars, everyone will be clearing out soon and you can have your playthings back to yourself! ; )
We talk a lot about adventure, challenges, and pushing our limits around here. While most of those activities take place outdoors, we know that our experiences outside prep us for the daily and life challenges that often take place inside. While our experiences in the wild have pushed us and molded us in so many physical ways, it is what it does on the inside that is the most transformational. When we reap the rewards of these experiences, it is utterly life-changing.
The co-founding Bold Betties have gone through a bit of a metamorphosis this fall. We were accepted into the global startup accelerator Boomtown in Boulder, CO. Think Shark Tank, but 3 months long, and nicer. Mostly. ; ) With Boomtown’s help and a ton of mentors and advisors, we are building on what Niki started and taking Bold Betties to the next level. Our journey with Boomtown comes to an end as we prepare for our pitch at Demo Day tomorrow at the Boulder Theater- wish us luck!
