Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Our partner, Strategic Essentials, provides comprehensive organizational development training and consulting through the unique Leadership Management International, Inc. (LMI) Strategic Development Process ™. This is training that has really led to our success and continues to add value to our bottom line.

No One Succeeds Alone

In our many years in the marketing business in and around the Reno area, we have learned that success comes easiest when you surround yourself with like minded business partners /alliances which strengthen all parties involved.

Our Partner – Strategic Essentials

We have several local businesses that we partner with to help us continue to grow; they keep our wits sharp and our skills up to date.  Learning is an ongoing and ever productive part of life and business.  As marketing professionals and designers, our expertise may not have always been in managing and running the business side of things. We learned some hard lessons, before we realized that if someone else excels at these things, why not learn from them? That’s where Valerie Cardenas, owner of Strategic Essentials, came in and improved the way we were running our business, ultimately helping us to define our success.

If you are finding that some of your entrepreneurial hats fit better than others, call Strategic Essentials to discuss “What Matters Most” for your organizations development.  They will custom tailor your plan with measurable goals and a timeline for improvement. Ensure that employees (and yourself) are successful in navigating all areas of your organization with this award winning development program.

Since partnering with Strategic Essentials, our business has benefited from  improved sales procedures, productivity across the team, clarity of business goals, team morale, cash flow, and an increase in billable hours.  We have also been able to streamline our invoicing and estimating processes. Learn how you can make your team more efficient and productive while creating a results-based, goal-oriented culture focused on “What Matters Most” for your organization.

This Makes My Day – A “Green Shipping” article we helped a client with…

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

You work hard, you learn things, and over time you get better at what you do… and there is a sense of satisfaction in that.

Sometimes clients rave, sometimes not, and sometimes things just click and you don’t even know it… all while you are busy in the trenches doing what needs to be done and busily doing the best you can.

Then something like this pops into our email “in box” that makes us all smile. It’s an affirmation of why we do what we do and why we do it.

The background is this: Client (Creative Coverings)had been doing some experimenting with some new shipping bags for returning fabric and linen rentals from large events. They were trying to lower the cost of the process as well as the carbon footprint of the return shipping process. Then voila! They came up with the idea of reusable Return Shipping Duffel Bags that could be easily reused and would still work with the UPS bulk processing shipping system. The light bulb went on and they roughed out an article and handed it to us for review. Well we took that article and polished it up so it was fit for media consumption, and then the buzz, excitement and kudos came rolling in! Here is what the client sent us to let us know what had happened.

I just wanted to say thank you to Christian, Judith and Blair for all of your efforts with the Green Shipping Service article.  I sent out to NNBW, RGJ, Catersource, Rental Management, Special Events, ISES, and Entrepreneur this morning.  The response has been fantastic.  NNBW is running on Monday and complimented on what a well written article it was, along with mentioning that he (NNBW Editor) thinks we could get some national exposure with this one.

Lisa Hurley, the editor of Special Events Mag thought it was great and Rental Management is going to come by the ARA booth to see the bag. –

So this morning I sit a little higher and straighter in my chair with a sense that we do actually make a difference from time to time… Maybe more than we know.
