Cool Stuff Week of May 1st, 2017

By May 2, 2017 No Comments

Urban Coop Company – My family eats about 40 eggs per week – seriously.  So, being the math and finance dork that I am, I decided to create a spreadsheet to determine if it would be cheaper to own my own chickens.  The answer is a resounding no.  However, chickens are cool and having your own eggs is even cooler.  If you are interested, this is the best chicken coop company I found.

NPR Podcast “How I built This” – This podcast is pure entrepreneurship at its best. I love these 20-40 minute episodes that tell the stories of the successes, failures, persistence, and attitudes needed to be a successful entrepreneur.


Calistoga – I recently had a speaking engagement for a group having a retreat in Calistoga. First, with all the rain this year, the hills are green and gorgeous.  Second, I loved the little town of Calistoga.  I stayed at the Mount View Hotel and Spa.  It had a friendly staff and a great little bar and restaurant attached to it.  The rooms have a vintage almost art-deco feel, and the keys are made out of real metal (with real locks).  If you like wine, warmth, hot springs, and good food, Calistoga might be worth a look.

DW Bistro – DW Bistro was voted one of the Top 10 Burgers in Las Vegas by You can check out that article here. If you’re not in the mood for a burger, my go-to is their curry chicken bowl.  Cool place, great food, awesome people.  Enjoy!
