"My life in Boulder"
I am writing a daily blog for 365 days which began on my birthday January 27, 2010. The exciting and fascinating life, thoughts, observations, on everyday life of being a talk show host, internet media CEO, father, friend, sponsor. With stories of the past.
Friends often suggest I write a book about my life so instead I'll try this project for a year. See how it comes out.

Boulder Social Media: experts rip off Boulder business's
Paying a social media expert to promote your company is a monumental waste of money. #socialmedia#boulder
Why?? because these people charge too much money, sit in coffee shops and don't do jack shit to help you actually increase business. Now what does that mean.?? they make promises they cannot deliver on. They don't work. They don't pay attention to your company. They don't really give a shit about your business. They talk the talk but sit on their ass's tweeting to their friends about drinking.......essentially. Okay, they like to go to the apple store and buy crap.
But seriously, they are always young and have no sense of what it takes to be a small business owner, yet they want to charge you a lot of money to fuck around. I have as of yet seen one of these so called hot shots make a difference on one business in Boulder. Even Downtown boulder or the Boulder chamber have gotten into the act, but what difference do they make to increase revenue to local business?? I don't see it and i've been in business in boulder for 30 years. I use social media all of the time. No one can convince me as of yet it's worth.
Take twitter. What fucking use is it unless you are out getting drunk with your girlfriends.........It's stupid. seriously.
