Chicago Sunrise Photography - Lake Michigan - Today
This is a single frame, shot an hour ago. I was out walking and had to cut it short to head to the beach for the first worthy sunrise in a long while. Although I didn't even seen the actual sun come through the clouds it was well worth the trip. Have a great day.

Story

Business Development & Sales @ MMI (www.michlinmetals.com) Woman Owned Small Business in Aerospace Metal & Stainless Steel Distribution. Lover of Photography when time permits.
Introduction
I love creating efficiencies through the use of technology. Working inside the small business paradigm is a positive for someone such as myself as it allows the flexibility and latitude needed to architect, create, deploy and maintain systems that create intrinsic value to the organization. 

I am a voracious reader and enjoy Epic Novels, Historical Fiction, Non-Fiction (specifically Organized Crime, Espionage, History) and any other great story. 

Lately I have been reading a great deal of content on the web. Subject matter is mostly about G+, Social Media, Small Business, SEO & the Aerospace Metal Industry

I have recently started a couple communities (Under Michlin Metals):
autoawesome community - All things autoawesome

Here are some Circles I would fit well into:
  • Google+ 
  • Google Drive
  • Google Local City Experts
  • Photography
  • Small Business 
  • Reader
  • Blogger
  • Steel
  • Sales
  • Aerospace
  • SEO
  • Social Media

Terrible customer service. Manager who has considerable experience with small businesses was an absolute dolt. After sending the owner of our company in to try and upgrade a phone, she couldn't because she wasn't on as an authorized user. So she called me and I spoke to him, he said there's nothing I can do from here. My name was listed on the account 2x, I mean what sense does that make? How would I be listed twice and her not once? Let me ask you a question AT&T, do you think it's reasonable to have my name 2x or that it would be the boss' name and mine as well???? I just don't understand how a person who goes into the store can't get help. THEY CAN'T GET HELP FROM A HUMAN? How does that work? That's not called customer service that's called telling the customer to go F themselves...Not a great way to handle a 15 year old account. Go to a different store. This place is a joke.

I recently migrated my site to a new responsive design through Confluent Forms. Over the last almost month my conversions have increased, the feedback has been extremely positive from users and we're extraordinarily happy with the final product. David and Tom make a great team. Tom built out most of the site while David helped establish our Google Analytics to such a granular degree I can now talk knowledgeably about how users are flowing through the sites sales funnel. In a situation where your website brings in a good degree of revenue, I would say spend your money on a quality team. David and Tom are nothing less than excellent. They deliver a fantastic finished product that doesn't stop at your sites curb appeal. They dig deeper to ensure you are maximizing every session on your site. Pay them, it's worth it. For our site, we wanted to insure we kept our current rankings and work on improving them, since the migration we're seeing positive trends and no drops in traffic which is good but what's better is our conversions are not only up but they are being tracked much more effectively than ever before...so although our traffic is still on point with historical trends the conversions have increased and again, that's all that matters. I would highly recommend Confluent Forms.

Pizza is great and so are the fries...if you want some quality bar food this is a great place for a pie and some beer. It's been around forever and serving Highwood all the while. Head over there for some solid food anytime.

Can you say LOBSTER ROLL? Well if you want a great one, go there...it's a bit pricey for lunch but on point if you want a good not to fancy dinner....The seafood is amazing and I would expect nothing less from the guys who run Once Upon a Bagel. Delicious.

If you want a wonderful ambiance and a great wine list head over to this amazing little place in Highwood. Cellar Gate has live music outside in the summer w/a great patio and during the winter you can sit by a fire place drinking wine and eating their great apps...it's a must try IMO.

Everything here is quite tasty. I got the special w/steak, chicken and sausage and just did no sausage and extra steak...amazing...and they have this bread that is like naan or pita and it's amazing. Go, now.
