Cheers to Seven Years

Today columbus imPRessions is 7-years-old!!!

Seven, my favorite number, happens to be the year of brass.

The number seven seems to have quite a bit of meaning too. For when it comes to making a grand statement, feeling lucky or seeking the divine, nothing beats the power of seven.

  • The optimum number of hours of sleep for humans is seven.
  • There are seven colours of the rainbow.
  • The number seven is one of the most significant in the Bible. 
  • Along with seven deadly sins there are seven virtues: humility, chastity, kindness, patience, abstinence, diligence and liberality.
  • There are seven pillars of wisdom.
  • The ancient world had seven wonders.
  • The number seven is both lucky and spiritual.
  • Seven also deals with the activation of imagination and manifesting results in our lives through the use of conscious thought and awareness.
Regardless of what seven means, I am thrilled to have built a successful business in columbus imPRessions. These last seven years I've worked with amazing clients, enjoyed interesting projects and met many business contacts; each has inspired, educated and helped me grow over these last seven years. So for that I feel extremely lucky! 

Cheers to seven years! I raise my brass mule mug to seven and hopefully many, many more!

Total Comfort Shoes: Grand Opening Social Strategy

The last couple months I've had the pleasure of assisting Total Comfort Shoes, a locally owned shoe company, with their social strategy, specifically for Facebook to promote and get ready for the Easton Gateway Grand Opening on April 16th.

We've discussed the importance of connecting online with the brands they carry, as well as the local media, creating hashtag strategies and engaging with their Facebook followers. 

Check them out on Facebook and join their Grand Opening Celebration on April 16th to see what they have to offer, check out the store-wide savings and quite possibly even win some pretty cool prizes. 

If you go, be sure to take a photo and post it using #TotalComfortShoes.

My Vacation Day In The Woods

Today I took a vacation day and experienced my first hunting adventure. Sitting quietly in the woods for hours gives you plenty of time to think, and think and think (and take a selfie or two).

I learned quite a bit while in the woods about hunting and myself:
  • Multiple layers are good and Cabela's long john's definitely do the job at keeping you warm. However, I tend to look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man when I hit triple layers.
  • There are so many different types of birds and because of my year's working with the Columbus Metro Parks I can identify a decent amount of them.
  • After hours pass by starring out into the woods it becomes like a desert oasis. Tree branches begin to look like a rack on a buck and distant tree stumps can look like a doe.
  • When you hear a rifle shot on the adjacent property it can be both deflating and hopeful.
  • Hunters are extremely patient people, extremely patient! But, I am way more patient than I give myself credit for.
  • A bearded man in camo is ruggedly handsome.

  • Don't move and stay behind the rifle!
  • Cabela's definitely knows how to use branding to their benefit. Although the camouflage is so good you almost miss seeing their logo.
  • Hunting makes you hungry. So after a day of hunting, leftover coffee in a thermos and some beef jerky taste delicious.
  • The shower and teeth brushing you take after a hunt makes you feel cleaner than you have ever felt before.
  • But most of all I love the outdoors and appreciate how beautiful it is even on a cold late-fall day.
