Last summer seemed particularly buggy. In fact, it was pretty hard to mow the lawn or even stay outside very long without being swarmed by gnats. And unlike other years, these "gnats" didn't go away in the summer heat. In fact, they got worse as summer wore on.


Usually gnats try to fly into your eyes and ears, but these guys bit. I bought a gnat hat with a net that dropped down to my shoulders and wore long sleeves and jeans tucked into my socks when I worked in the garden. My clothes were way too hot, but it was either suit up or spray myself with repellent every time I went outside.

How Important Is a Website to a Service Business?

COURTESY OF GUEST BLOGGER, JILL STONE, STONE MOUNTAIN SOLUTIONS & TRENDS IN MARKETING MAGAZINE

CLICK HERE to discover more about Stone Mountain Solutions.


If you have a service business without a physical location it’s crucial to make sure your website reflects exactly what you want your prospects to know about your brand. You don’t have a store for your prospects to walk around in to experience the atmosphere or browse through merchandise. They aren’t able to ask you questions, try on clothes or taste samples. So how do you as a service business owner offer an experience to your prospects? I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “buyers do business with who they know, like and trust” but how do they get to know you? How will they get to like you? How will they learn to trust you? In other words, how do you let them know how awesome you and your services are?

A Winter Scenario Everyone Hopes to Avoid

It’s a winter scenario everyone hopes to avoid.

The snow is piling up, the wind is blowing … and all of a sudden, the lights go out. What do you do next?

We don’t like bad-weather outages any more than our customers do, and we’ve prepared for these conditions by investing extensively to keep the lights on all year ‘round.

(You might have seen our announcement a few weeks ago that our investments in tree trimming, new technology and upgraded lines prevented about 410,000 outages last year. To us, that’s just a start.)

Still, severe weather – like high winds, ice, or heavy, wet snow -- can cause outages even on a strong delivery network. So what can you do to prepare?

Art, Emotion & Logic

COURTESY OF GUEST BLOGGER: Nic East, Jim Thorpe Artist & Co-Owner of Hill Home Forge B&B  www.niceastdesign.com  


Art has long been thought to be the product of logical thinking and indeed throughout the early times when most artists were concrete-sequential thinkers trying their best to copy reality as they perceived it, they strove to make pictures.


Only recently, within the last 100 plus years, have artists made use of their emotions to tell art’s stories in ways that encouraged deeper feeling-involvement.
