Champagne dreams

2013.

Full of promise and potential.

In addition to kicking up the yoga, getting the entire family a membership at the Y, and adding a little kale to everything, we're making some commitments in business and life. Simple stuff, but things we believe are important. Thanks for letting us share them here:

In business...
Marketing has and ever shall be about brand and what people believe about your business because of it. Tools -- digital, social, traditional -- come and go, but what people say about you when you're not in the room, that lasts forever. So, in business, we commit to keeping the basics in mind, to providing as much insight and value as we do tangible marketing products, and to being wildly honest (which may mean talking our clients out of work as much as we pitch it.)

In community...
We're investing our time and resources in things that add a little awesome to the place we live, and that help build the capacity that can translate into hope and transformation for fellow citizens who need it. So, in community, we commit to pushing for change and innovation by investing in things that grow ideas and talent from the grassroots (aka the most powerful way).

In life....
We're taking a serious look at health and at balance, at relationships (good and improveable) and at how we are raising our kids to be empathetic citizens of the world.   So, in the general everyday, we commit to the health of our family, and to being more aware of the health of the planet and the people on it.

In conclusion...
Finally, we commit to celebration and serious, consistent gratitude. That is, to being more aware that a New Year's eve is not the only appropriate time for champagne.  (Wednesdays are to be celebrated, too.)

Cheers!
