Clever Ducks Take to Water


On the hottest day of the year (111 degrees at SLO Airport), the Clever Ducks took to the water... Morro Bay that is for a picnic and kayaking. The timing was superb as it was hot but not as hot on the bay. Here's a link to the album of photos.

I get by with a little help from my friends…


Late last week Channel Pro, a national trade magazine focused on the small and medium sized business IT providers, called and wanted to send a photographer up to SLO from LA to shoot images at our office to go with an interview I gave a few weeks earlier. That was great news, of course. And our friends at Wingswept were key in the interview and its contents. (I’ll post a link to it here once it comes out).

But then, I immediately thought, how am I going to make the office and me look good. So I called on some good friends. It all went well yesterday. And I want to thank my friends:

Janet Hooper of Recreated Spaces for dressing up the office
Ian Saude of iansaude.com for the fabulous jewelry and wadrobe consulting
Coverings for the great clothes
Salon Lux and Marissa for the great makeup
Christa at Jassi and Christa’s for the great hair

Thanks to my staff for accommodating all the commotion here . It was quite a production. And thanks to the photographer Steve Morales, for making the trip up. And his assistant Brian. We look forward to seeing the results.

Cal Poly Wheelchair and Rotary Mission to Oaxaca

We met our intern Jordan through the planning for the mission. He's just back and here's the video that will show you the brightest lights are those that give back. Jordan, thanks for sharing your light at Clever Ducks this summer too! Congratulations on a great mission to help those who need it most!

Junior Life Guards at Avila

It is summer and Junior Lifeguards (and a sandy house) are a big part of my life. Sophia came in 3rd in Carpenteria in Girl's Paddling. Way to go! Ducks take to water, as you all know!

Customer Service is Everything


I saw this sign at Rancho Grande Motors this week and thought it was worth sharing. Without customer focus there is no reason to be in business. A good reminder!

Matt's Wife Wins: Smiles all around

So Lisa enters this contest for sending someone a smile and mega candy bouquet and Matt gets this today. How cool is that? It made the whole office smile. And the Lindt chocolates went fast. Thanks for making us all smile, Lisa!
