It’s something about those intricate patterns on the front of adult coloring books that consumers just can’t seem to resist. Be it paisley or geometric, flowers or fairies, consumers are trading their styluses for colored pencils, eager to add color to their mood. And who wouldn’t?

We’re all in the people business. Regardless of what you sell, there’s a person behind ever dollar made. And it’s not just your customer. Employee engagement has a direct impact on customer experience. Not knowing what motivates your employees will make it nearly impossible to deliver on your brand promise of serving your customers. What is…

It’s official.  Spring is on the horizon and warmer days are ahead.  Time for daffodils and buttercups, yard sales and remodeling.  Time to clean out the closets and de-clutter the work shed, pull up the weeds and plant the garden.  It’s indeed time for new beginnings. And as a small business owner, what better way…

Now more than ever, customers are swimming in an endless pool of information.  Just about every topic you can think of is searchable online and findable on Google. Yet when it comes to solving their specific problems, many customers feel left to drift at sea, clinging desperately to our websites, social platforms, or physical locations…

  The reality is, businesses need paying customers to stay afloat.
