Life has lots of steps. Big ones, little ones, scary ones, fun ones. Sometimes they are steps we don't want to take, and sometimes they are steps we have been looking forward to for years. Summer time has always been one of my favorite seasons because it seems like the time when you get to celebrate lots of these "steps." From graduation parties to weddings, the months of May through August always seem to fill up quickly with celebratory activities.


Although most steps are similar at a base level, they differ in the manner and timing for each individual. I have plenty of friends who are currently marching down isles, popping pacifiers into baby mouths, and having 3am bottle feeding times. Me? I can barely remember to feed both my dog and myself, and my (patient) boyfriend has made it his mission to teach me punctuality since I struggle to make it on time to well, anywhere... but I'm working on it.


While I may not have chosen the wedding or baby "steps" at this point in my life (and I probably won't for awhile, sorry Mom), I have chosen the step of being an entrepreneur. And to me, that is a baby. I stay up worrying about our company, I nurture it, I want nothing more than to see it grow and succeed, and sometimes, while I always love it, I don't always like how it behaves. POLISHED. Media Management has taught me such a sense of determination, strength, and a "why-the-hell-not" attitude, that I can't imagine my development as an individual had I not taken this step and the previous steps that led Emily and I to this point.


Everyone has their own paths to walk and steps to conquer. It's up to no one else how you do it or in what order you arrange the steps. Staying true to who you are and #MakingMoves is the name of the game!

POLISHED. MEDIA MINUTE: Image Based Platforms  - Today the POLISHED. ladies are talking about image based social media platforms. Most companies are too nervous to start using Instagram or Pinterest because they don't know what content to put up. 
The #SocialScoop 
A LOT OF people are getting their news from Facebook and Twitter-more than ever before. Paradoxically, most of us don't see social media as an essential news source.

Are you using Facebook to acquire customers for your small business?

Do you struggle to measure the return on your social media marketing investment?

No matter what sort of traditional/digital PR guru you chat up, the parties should all tell you the same thing about creating social media content: "The shorter, the better."

...What we are totally crushing on this month:
We recently had a client turn us on to the BEST little Indian cafe ever. Being that our client is from India, it seemed like a good bet. Thanks, Pari! 

Biju's Little Curry Shop

Staying true to south Indian food, Biju's Little Curry Shop focuses on bringing a new style of Indian cuisine to Denver. Freshly made every day, we combine true southern style ingredients and throw in a little spice to give it a kick.  Add some protein or keep it vegan, it's your call, but we'll make sure your visit is full of flavor.
