Brewyard Beer Company Launches a Branded Website and Realizes Immediate Results!

They discovered what a great team they made while working together on restoring Sherwin’s ’67 Karmann Ghia, and strengthened their bond while restoring several other vintage cars and tackling home repair projects.

How to Incorporate Social Justice into Your Brand

Last night I sat on a marketing and branding panel for the social network for businesses called,Townsquared. In the middle of the event, I asked the group to share what information they expected to see on a business’ social media platforms. The answers varied from specials the business is running to information on topics relevant to the business’ services and products. We had a good discussion and I think it was an enlightening exercise for other businesses to be a part of an impromptu focus group on what to post on social media. One of the comments a woman made about what she expects to see. She said, “social issues Read more

Entrepreneurial Reflections: Finding Your Self & Your Passion

This year, I’ve been fortunate to take two trips to places that area said to be “spiritual”… Places to reflect, re-center and be with self.  Not in front of a computer. Maybe bring a camera, but that’s about it in terms of technology… The two places were Palm Springs, CA and Sedona, AZ. As an entrepreneur, there are so many ebbs and flows of emotions and ever expanding responsibilities… Especially when you have a team. To me, maintaining life balance and being a great leader are a winning combination for everyone in the equation. And… It takes knowing of self, a lot of practice and coaching to achieve this. My focus Read more

Save Money in Your New or Expanding Business

I am sure you have heard the debate- Is writing a business plan really necessary? Is a one-page business plan all you need? Maybe it is because of this lesson I saw my parents learn or my innate desire to go into situations with as much information as possible, but I think no matter what you are trying to accomplish- any new business venture or business expansion should most definitely write a business plan. If for nothing else, for your own information and the time saving benefits it will produce. I come from an entrepreneurial background. My parents ran a food distribution company, called Frank’s Fresh Foods, out of our Read more

Why I stopped resisting grids.

I have a confession. I resist concepts that I don’t understand. A lot of us do, right? Grid design was one of those things. I built my first website on a free hosting platform called, Angelfire over 20 years ago hand coded in pure HTML using Notepad. I’ve always loved the instant gratification of putting code brackets around text, pushing to the web and seeing the result online in seconds. As nerdy as this sounds, it makes my heart flutter and my inner self jump for joy! As web development has evolved, so has design aesthetic and methods for developing templates. I began customizing templates in WordPress in 2008 and Read more

A Tech’s Guide To Navigating Mercury Retrograde

It’s that time of the year again! If you’re unfamiliar with this astrological phenomenon, according to astrologyzone.com, during this  three-and-a-half-week period – Mercury will reverse itself and move “forward” again.

While it’s still on, you can’t actually access any of your files. To make this period as seamless as possible, here are our tips on how to Read more
