Do you know who Brad Feld is? You should. He is one of my favorite bloggers and favorite Coloradans. Brad is co-founder of the venture capital firm Foundry Group, based in Boulder.
Brad will be speaking about about his own mental health experience and how leaders have the power to drive cultural change and reduce stigma at AllHealth Network's fundraising event on Wednesday, January 31, from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. at History Colorado. I am attending the event and hope you will too. You can get more details and register now at this link. I'll tell you more about Brad and his terrific blog below.
Brad's blog is called FeldThoughts (www.feld.com) and it is one of the few blogs that I read regularly. Brad is an amazing entrepreneur and, even more so, he is an amazing human, as you'll learn reading his blog. Don't get me wrong, Brad's not perfect. (none of us are) And that's the beauty of his blog. He's real. He often writes about the hard parts of life and how he navigates them.
He also reads a ton of books (100 books a year is his goal) and he blogs book reviews, which of course I love. I just read Why We Sleep and Ray Dalio's Principles based on Brad blogging about these two books recently. Brad is also an author of several books, which I plan to read.
Last, but not least, Brad’s blogging helped inspire me to start my blog here in 2018. Thank you, Brad!
Below are a few of my favorite recent blog posts of Brad's:
- @bfeld v52.0 - A wonderful reflection on Brad's 52nd birthday.
- Do You Reduce Stress Or Increase Stress?
- It Can All Change In A Day

I hope I've inspired you to follow Brad's blog and I hope to see you at the AllHealth Network event on January 31st!
UPDATE: I met Brad at the event! Photo below. Told him he’s like Bono to me. He replied, “well, a nerdy Bono.” :)
p.s. I plan to blog about Work-Life Happiness at least weekly in 2018. I'd be honored if you'd subscribe to my blog's emails on my website at: www.mikepritchard.com/subscribe.html
