Guns A’Blazing!

Blog Post about celebrating other businesses

Hey guys. Ashley here. As you may be aware, my husband Chris went to Mexico last week to a super remote part of the country up in the mountains. He’s pretty sure he was the only American in the entire town.  This trip for him was so much more than vacation. It was disconnecting from […]

Local Business

Several years ago, a national alarm/security system company came knocking on our door and convinced us to sign up with them for a home alarm system. We kept that system for many years until we decided to go a different route. Having paid this company on time for nearly a decade and having no contract […]

I hate @everyone!

Social media marketing

If you’re a Facebook user, you know about the @everyone feature on Facebook that the group admin can write “@everyone” and it tags every single group member in the post. This is a wonderful tool for administrators to be able to ensure important messages get noticed by their users. For example, a session is cancelled […]

Working Smarter

Working Smarter

I’m sure you’ve all heard the adage “work smarter not harder.” I definitely agree. My secret to success thus far has been to work smarter AND harder. If you can do 8 hours of work in 6 hours, then why not do 10 hours in 8? I feel certain we all agree on the merit […]

Hard Times

Marketing Agency Business Blog

I’ll be the first to tell you, 2022 was a hard year for me. We had many changes at Vitality South in 2022 that necessitated new processes. Luckily for me, I’ve never been afraid of hard work.  One of those changes was the addition/expansion of our IT team to compliment our Marketing and Software teams. […]

The Pain You Know

Last week I was fortunate enough to be able to enjoy a few days of R&R on vacation. We ate too much, enjoyed seeing the beach, and spent time laughing with good friends. On one of the days, my friend suggested that we go get massages, which I was thrilled to do. We scheduled our […]

Why We Listen

This is a true story. Many moons ago when I was getting married at the “ripe” age of 21, I went to a hairdresser to style my hair for my wedding. I had been growing my hair out for months with visions of it being down and long and wavy. It sounds ridiculous saying it […]

3 Whole years!

This past week marked our 3 year anniversary! In some ways, it feels like it has been eons that we have been doing this, and in others, it seems like just yesterday Megan and I were sitting on those beanbag chairs in the Renasant Center for Ideas while we were waiting for our furniture to […]

How to Help a Small Business

Blue circle with text "Do you want to know how to help? Here's 5 great ways!" above a sketch of a megaphone and two boxes with HELP SMALL BUSINESSES in them

Helping small businesses is really synonymous with helping your own community grow. Major corporations that operate within your community obviously employ and sometimes contribute locally, but it’s irrefutable that their profits are shipped out elsewhere. Helping local businesses is investing in the businesses that are invested in our community. It’s giving business to your neighbors […]

Do You LOVE It?

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I do my best thinking while I’m mowing my lawn. I personally get out and push mow it. I have for years, and I enjoy it. There are no distractions, it’s good exercise,  and I have free time for thinking while getting some […]

There’s Nothing Holding Me Back

Business Motivation

In full disclosure, I may or may not have the Shawn Mendes song stuck in my head at this particular moment. My girls, Layla and Vivienne, are currently obsessed with that song, as well as the rest of the Sing 2 soundtrack. But the thought of “nothing holding me back” got me excited all over […]

Throwing Money

Technology Blog

I’ve been working in the marketing and technology industry for more than a decade at this point, and I have discovered a trend. Technology in business is a very specialized niche that is not necessarily all that easy to fully grasp. A lot of people understand specific aspects of it, but it isn’t intuitive to […]
