OUR {UN}BLOG

This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

It was 20 years ago today

It’s hard to believe that it was 20 years ago today that I started my business. I am celebrating this milestone (made up of so many moments), by sitting at my desk and doing what I do.

How to Carry On

We received this as an email, and liked it so much that we want to share. If anyone knows who wrote this, please let us know so we can properly credit the author. 

A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water. Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, ‘half empty or half full?’… She fooled them all …. “How heavy is this glass of water?” she inquired with a smile.

IWM : Rachel Evans + Jesse Schiller

After years of working with clients at varying stages of their businesses, we know that sometimes the budget isn’t there, sometimes the content isn’t there, and sometimes the business isn’t defined enough to know what to do first or what to commit to showcasing…but you still need an online presence.
