Zooming in Style

The working world has dramatically changed since COVID-19, and chances are, the way you dress for work has, too. With working remotely being more prevalent than ever (along with the fact that it’s likely here to stay), it’s making some of us rethink the way that we present ourselves to colleagues. Being in front of a webcam, in your home, is a whole different situation than being in a [...]

The importance of online business reviews

Having a great website design and regular social media posts aren't enough. Why? Your brand isn't what you tell people it is ... it's what people tell each other it is! Your customers are talking about your business behind your back. They’re the most important people in the world besides family and friends, and they’re having conversations that affect your bottom line. Do you know what they’re saying? It’s simple: [...]

I take pictures!” My meek defense has no effect. A big man on the other side of me is bellowing in my face, his cigarette-tainted breath close [...]
