We’re lucky enough to call one of the greatest nations on this planet home. We hold freedoms and luxuries that some countries only dream about, and July 4th is our day to celebrate the gift we received in 1776.

Independence Day is not only a celebration of the United States officially becoming a country, but a celebration of the values our country was founded on and the men who fought for them.

 

The Declaration of Independence states that every person was created equally and was entitled to certa...

Also known as Leon Day, halfway to Christmas is celebrated on June 25th and marks exactly 6 months until the big day. Leon is cleverly Noel spelled backwards and generally seen as the day to start thinking about thinking about Christmas. A time for homemade gifters to get a head start on their new gift concoctions and a mini celebration for those of us who miss the pleasantness and treats of winter time.

 

There is no right or wrong way to celebrate Leon Day, the early birds start prepping their ...

A World Without Dad

13 Jun, 17

Where would we be in a world without dads? Sure, mom can teach us the same things dad can, but would she do it with the same bad jokes, sarcastic comments, or moustache? Probably not. Dads everywhere will take center stage this weekend to be celebrated and admired, but we still can’t help but think what the world would be like without dads. Let’s face it, life would be easier without the opportunity of being embarrassed every chance you turn a corner, but who would have encouraged us to try the ...Read More

Life is going to throw bombs at you whether or not you’re prepared, especially the entrepreneurial inclined. We cannot change what will happen to us we can only change our attitude towards how it will affect us.

Just because the sun is shining and the days are getting warmer doesn’t mean you have to wait until the cold weather comes back to drink your favorite tea – that’s taboo.

Besides being delicious, here’s a couple of reasons why drinking tea in the summer is actually a good thing.

Myth or fact: Will drinking hot tea in the scorching heat cool you down? Actually, it’s a proven fact, but not everyone will enjoy this technique. Consuming hot beverages (such as tea and coffee) raises your core temperatu...

Let’s start off by saying we promote drinking responsibly and being safe, but we’ve all crossed the line where fun should have stopped two drinks ago. The next morning we wake up clumsily trying to piece our night back together and grateful for coffee.

 

(We feel sorry for those of you who ran out of coffee before your night out because we’ve been there before and we made sure that we would never run out of coffee again.)

 

Why do we lose our memory after a few drinks?

 

Recent studies show that alc...

Once a year we scramble chaotically to find a gift that shows our mothers how much we care. Some by flowers, others by tacky personalized trinkets that she secretly stashes away, but is there such thing as a perfect gift? This year we put together a small list to inspire your appreciation for mom.

Commonly misconstrued with Mexico’s Independence Day, Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexico’s victory in the battle of Pueblea on May 5th 1862, with the victory becoming a sense of pride for the country.

In 1933, instead of building a wall, President Roosevelt enacted the “Good Neighbor Policy” to improve relations with Latin American countries, and thus popularizing Cinco de Mayo as we know it.

Much more than just a day full of tequila and nachos, Cinco de Mayo is a day for people of Mexican heritage l...

As business people and entrepreneurs you have probably heard the term “evergreen” and its importance to your success. We’ve been told to brand everything from letterheads to content, currently I’m holding a business card for…  Wait, somebody left chocolates on my desk…

Who are these from? Oh, my financial planner sent them for my birthday.

Sorry, I got distracted. What were we talking about? Business cards? Why are we talking about a business card when there’s chocolate on my desk?
