A few projects
As a family-owned and operated roofing business, Amy and Guy Grussing were looking for ways to grow their business. The early days of their business were when people still kept and used phone books. But with the dawn of that little giant we call the internet, the Grussings were eager to have their business on the first page of Google searches.
By adding front- and back-end SEO, regular blog posts, and an active social media presence, within a few weeks Grussing Roofing was on the front page of local Google searches. Amy and Guy attribute much of their new business to their robust online presence. And I’m just happy the greater Twin Cities area can now easily find such kind and honest business owners.
How to say a sweet goodbye to shampoo.
One of the many random things I did while I was living and teaching in Daegu, South Korea was experiment with various ways to simplify my life. My good friend and I spent many mornings before work asking ourselves questions like:
- What can we cut back on?
- How can we use less and leave less waste?
- What parts of our routine do we consider “normal” that we can change?
One of the things we came up with was shampoo, conditioner and soap. And so we began experimenting with the “No Poo Method”. Not only did we try it, but we also wrote about it and invited our friends and family back home to try it too. And you know what’s funny and totally crazy? They did.
One of the editors from Global Cool stumbled upon our original blog post and asked if I’d write an article for the Global Cool community too. Of course I was more than happy to. Read it here.
Treating patients, naturally.
When I’m not strategizing and creating content for Hope Clinic’s social media platforms, you’ll find me peppering Dr. Brad with questions as I collect information for the next post for Dr. Brad’s blog.
I’ve been working with the good practioners at Hope Clinic for over four years now. I generate consistent blog content packed full of practical & natural health tips for the Hope Clinic patient community. Lucky me.
One big world full of small connections.
Sitting in a big, poofy heap of drippy, slushy winter-ness right there in the card aisle at Target – that’s when I first discovered Amy’s writing. Through blurred, tear-filled eyes I read card after card of her Cadence line by American Greeting Cards, each card was more perfect than the last one. I felt an immediate connection to the writer behind these cards; she was saying things as I might say them.
It’s a simply but lengthy little story about how Amy and I became email friends shortly after my aisle-sitting, teary mess. Amy has shared a bit of her story with me and I’ve shared a bit of my story with her. Like we do in life. There’s nothing particularly extraordinary about the story, besides that the story is ours and I love it.
One time I wrote about her here on my own blog, you can read it if you like.
I still distinctly remember the morning I opened the email from Amy that asked me if I would be interested in writing a guest post for her blog. Mother’s Day was the occasion. You can take a peek here and read what came out if you like.
Amy and I are still email friends, today. Perhaps someday we’ll meet. I think it will be near the ocean.
