In case you missed it, the Olympics are happening! Rio has us all twitterpated and we just can’t stop watching. We love stories and the Olympics are full of great ones. Not to mention watching sports you would never watch otherwise (and the best of the best compete at sports you love). Here are our favorite sports:
Audrey - Swimming
Keely - Diving
Moira - Gymnastics
Mary - Soccer
Allie - Track and Field
Clayton - Table Tennis
There’s a brand new podcast in town from Gimlet Media and our Chief Marketing nerd is obsessed. Science Vs is only a couple of episodes in, but Audrey is hooked. The show pits facts against fads. Take a listen to see what is real, and what is just a passing fad. (Bonus: the host is from Australia and her accent is awesome to listen to.)
Also, did you know the Internet just celebrated it’s 25th birthday? August 6th, 1991 is commonly known as the day the Internet was born. Sure there was a message sent from one computer to another in 1969, and a management system was launched on March 12, 1989, but it didn’t start changing lives until a few years later. And nothing has been the same since. Happy belated birthday Internet!
We found these 7 networking hacks to help you, and us, grow our businesses through relationships. Our favorite tip? Listening. Showing genuine interest in what someone is talking about will encourage them to divulge more, giving you the opportunity to learn more and build a friendship.
We’ve really been enjoying the Pokemon Go stories on the news. Bodies found, ridiculous accidents, and even the start of budding relationships. But what really has us laughing is the story about a Pokemon Go player crashing into a Baltimore patrol car.
What’s been making you laugh this month?
