'Shady' stories in the life of a Brazilian (small) biz owner
August - 2015

I think that August should have 60 days in its month. At least we could enjoy Summer a little longer....I know I would. Too many things to do before the longer days are gone...Enjoy the short newsletter while at the beach and pay special attention to my newest section at the end called  But Before I Go... H ope you'll enjoy!



Boy...Oh Boy!
Last month I wrote about  my new working van  and how happy I was. Can you believe that, in a little over six weeks, I have driven almost  5,500 miles  already? Yeah, between jobs all over the place like Boston, Cape Cod and the Islands, Motorization Courses, Plantation Shutter courses, and a tax-free weekend, our monthly newsletter took a backseat (no pun intended).

I know that you didn't really miss me, as window shades aren't required at the beach. But next month, things are getting back to normal. Sorry for breaking the news that Summer is almost over! (in case you didn't know it).
Before you know it, it will be time for home decorating again and new window treatments. Why not avoid the rush and start thinking about what to do (see photos to inspire) with those large windows in the living and dining room? Perhaps you've been putting off getting those new blackout shades for a better night's sleep in your bedroom? No problem, just call or text my cell phone at 508-904-2108, or shoot me an email to schedule a visit.
But Before I Go....Last Tuesday on August 25th, it was our wedding anniversary. And what better way to celebrate than to bring Ana with me to Nantucket? Now, don't let me fool you...I went there to work, but the install was completed by noon and we enjoyed the rest of the afternoon at the beach appreciating the breeze and the ocean, and took a moment to look forward to many more anniversaries to come!

What I do...

People don't shop for window coverings often. In fact many haven't 

bought new shades in 15 - 20 years!


My job is to introduce you to the many wonderful features & benefits 

that automated shades have to offer.


As a result you will be able to control privacy, home security (protection) and prevent sun fading via smartphones and tablets whether you are home or away.
