We are loving the “spring weather’’ in Colorado. Nothing beats 80s one week and snow the next. As we natives like to say, “If you don’t like the weather in Colorado, wait a minute.”
We also love snacks, gotta satisfy that 2:30 craving. We’ve been keeping some Boom Chicka Pop in the office to share when we’re feeling especially snacky. They have so many flavors to try, we haven't even made a dent! What flavor looks good to you?
We are all lifelong students. We love to watch tutorials on new Illustrator tricks, keep up to date on social media trends and discover new tricks to building websites. This month we’ve been focusing on the importance of clear communication, which for many business starts with a clear mission statement. We love these tips for writing a compelling mission statement.
We also learned the how apologizing too often can be a self-defeating practice and is something we all need to work on. This hard-to-kick habit can have negative side effects on your career by making you appear incompetent and keeping you out of positions of power. Do you need to kick this habit to the curb? We found these 3 tips to be quite helpful.
April Fools got us good (some better than others, AKA Keely and this banana kiwi hybrid growing tip, gullible much?)
Here are our three favorite April Fool’s day pranks from this year:
The Google Gnome
Hu from Hulu
Petlexa from Amazon
