Every month we like to share business advice with you, make you laugh and show you what we’ve been enjoying this past month. So here are our Loves, Learns and Laughs for January 2017.

We are incredibly inspired by Audrey’s kids and their kind hearts. Her oldest, Merrick, asked his friends to bring items for the homeless to his birthday party instead of presents for himself. He and the family brought the donations to the Giving Heart Englewood and helped serve their Christmas Lunch. Merrick even made a new friend and was featured in an article in the Englewood Herald!
We were so inspired by Merrick and the people Audrey met that the 27th Team decided to provide lunch at Giving Heart Englewood every other month for 2017 starting on February 7. We’d love to have you join us sometime!
We also love the poster our Graphic Designer Extraordinaire designed for our client Rocky Mountain Conference. The poster was inspired by vintage national park posters and we are in love!
We’ve been reading about the importance of a morning routine. For many of us waking up in the morning is a struggle and nights call our names, so the idea of waking up earlier than necessary makes us cringe a little bit. But you can’t argue with science. So how do night owls becoming happy morning people? Baby steps.
As a business owner you are likely meeting new people often, particularly potential customers and clients. Working on impressing them can be draining, but you can ace your first impression in just two seconds. We found this lesson from the founder of Science of People who says it’s more about how you say things than what you say. Get out there and crush it!
Did you know too many space heaters can blow a fuse? Yeah, our office has been having some furnace problems and in an attempt to warm up, we blew a fuse. Don’t be like us and use a few of these tips to keep warm instead.
Innovation is inspiring and we are always interested in new products designed to make life easier. But, sometimes creators take things a bit too far. Here are a few products we’ve laughed at recently.
Pet Rock Mobile Charger (confession: this definitely made us laugh but in a “we might want it” kind of way)
Pet High Chair
What new products have you laughed at recently?
