Creating a Colorado Cookie – This One Gets Our Vote!

Creating a Colorado Cookie – This One Gets Our Vote!

“Oh my gosh. These are the best cookies ever!” gushed my 19 year-old niece.  ”They’re really good, I wouldn’t changed anything,” advised my husband. My boys just ate them up. This was good.  It meant I was onto something delicious. Having been invited by Better Homes and Gardens to submit a Colorado-themed cookie for their State Cookie Contest on Facebook (Vote now at this link through July 27th), I was trying to develop the quintessential Colorado cookie — a cookie both delicious and evocative of my home state. I was down to two original recipes, Colorado Columbine Cookies and Chocolate Mountain Cookies and I was trying them out on all available relatives: parents, children, spouse, sister-in-law, mother-in-law and nieces. Tough duty for them. My nieces and their friend sample both cookies and find them fabulous! My Criteria for A Colorado Cookie Better Homes and Gardens has only one requirement for this contest: that we use one of their new baking sheets that they have created exclusively for Wal-Mart.

Mountain Girl Does Good – Streets of Afghanistan Cultural Exhibit and Fundraiser

Mountain Girl Does Good – Streets of Afghanistan Cultural Exhibit and Fundraiser

Its been four years since Shannon Galpin first exhibited at the Riverwalk Center. Tomorrow, July 1, she returns with an exhibit that is now touring Nationally as a fundraiser for Mountain2Mountain’s work in Afghanistan with women and children. Four years ago, Mountain2Mountain was born in Breckenridge, as an organization fighting for the rights and future of women and girls in conflict zones – where women’s rights are the most often trampled. In that initial fundraiser, the Breckenridge community came together to raise over $100,000 in a historic night at the Riverwalk Center, which led to the construction and support of two girls schools in Pakistan. Since then, Mountain2Mountain has focused its own efforts in Afghanistan; working in the women’s prisons, creating education and health care access in rural communities, and working with urban youth to find their voice through art and music.  Tomorrow evening an event that began at the Denver Art Museum will immerse Breckenridge visitors in an area of the world most will never see. The lifesize multimedia exhibition re-creates the city...

EvoSwing Golf – Giving Correct Instructions to the Ball at Impact

EvoSwing Golf – Giving Correct Instructions to the Ball at Impact

This video is a quick intro for some of the basic instruction principles of EvoSwing Golf.  It all starts with the most basic…and most influential…piece of the golf swing, the relationship of the club face to the ball! Learning to visually understand and feel with your body the correct movement of the club face is the first step to playing better golf.  Once you know how the club face influences the ball, self coaching will be easier and practice time will be much more efficient! [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPdLVExdyA4&feature=youtu.be] A great swing is a great thing… but only if the club face is giving correct instructions to the ball at impact!!

Biz Monday – The Best Financial Tool for Business Owners

Biz Monday – The Best Financial Tool for Business Owners

If there were a tool that helped you create crystal-clear plans . . . that provided you with continual feedback on how well your plan was working . . . that told you exactly what’s working and what isn’t, allowing you to consistently make smart business decisions to keep your business on track for success – wouldn’t you want to take advantage of it? Well, there is such a tool. It’s called the Budget vs. Actual report. Clarifying Your Plan Clarity is power. The clearer you are with your business goals, the more likely you are to achieve them. Creating a budget forces you to drill down in to the details of your goals. It prods you to think about how one business decision affects all other aspects of the company’s operations. Example: Say you want to grow your sales by 15% this year. Does that mean you need to hire another salesperson? When will the business start to see new sales from this person? Do you need to...
