I didn't want to try it, but peer pressure got to be too much and now I too am a #slack  believer...
More than a messaging system, Slack is a whole new way to work. Pin it for later: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/100627372901169741/

In surfing and business, starting off right means growth will be a lot less painful! Let's go to surf camp.

Had an amusing (for me) moment at the beach in which a toddler acted just as you'd expect despite his fancy duds....

It got me thinking - in marketing this happens all the time. What's the best way to handle it when your customers start looking around for the next shiny object?

What's a business to do when customers behave the way customers do - namely start looking for lower prices, trendy options, or the next shiny object?

In all the excitement to release your new product or service, have you made sure your landing page images and CTAs are inspiring trust?
They could be if there's a disconnect or no connection at all! Pin it for later: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/100627372901126222/

Nope, I don't like it when ice cream melts all over me when I'm paying for it. Is there something simple you could change to make your customers just a little bit more thrilled with you?

Sometimes all you have to do is watch. Other times, tweaking a question will help you change everything.

I saw HubSpot published an infographic on eating for productivity, so I thought I'd expand on natural ways to get more done in your work day... #gtd   #productivity

Why do I keep swimming in the ocean despite recent shark attacks that were way too close for comfort? For me the benefits outweigh the risks. Thinking about sharks and business in today's post.

Inbound Marketer and HubSpotter with a penchant for pups and living an active lifestyle.
Introduction
I spend way too much time at my computer.  Fortunately, my dogs insist on a long daily walk and I do volunteer work a couple of times a week.  Gotta stay balanced! Really loving my new place in Wilmington, NC!

I remember our first Texas Instruments computer.  From the moment I tried it, sitting on shag carpet in the early 80s, I was hooked.  The ONE computer class I took in High School was the only one offered, but I did get 102 in the class!  Since then it's been mostly  trial and error.  Lots of trial, some error, but it's always rewarding.

Sometimes I forget that I'm tall.  Six feet tall, to be exact.  Then someone walks up to me and says, "You're tall!" and I have to choke back the smart comments I'd really like to make and just agree with them!

Living in Texas after growing up in New England was interesting.  I did expect more cowboys and horses, to be honest. Now I'm back to the east coast in Wilmington, NC. It seems the perfect compromise!

These days, I do some web design, mostly in WordPress, inbound marketing, and a lot of social media.  I'm open to collaborations and love a good ideas session. Get in touch!

The office staff was nice enough. The guy who came out the close the pool broke a piece of the skimmer, and rather than telling me about it, tossed it on the ground, as he did with the wrapping for the pool cover. There was ZERO instruction given and so in the spring, the water on the top of the cover caused the lining of the pool to fall in. I've had nothing but problems with local pool service companies and while at least these guys will call you back, they certainly don't HAVE your back.

Leslie and her staff were great! She really listens to what you want and need. AND, she'll tell you if someone else can help you for less money. She and her staff are a real pleasure, and had I not moved out of state, I never would have changed agencies!

The portabella mushroom sandwich, the tortilla soup and the italian cream cake. Oh, and the herbal iced tea. Love this place.

I took my car to SLIX because of a badly dented front fender and deeply gouged rear fender. For a reasonable price, they made it look brand new. Maybe it's not a big deal, but I was very impressed that they were able to match my unusual paint color so perfectly. I would absolutely recommend them.
