Make Work Fun Again!
by Michael Pietrzak

"Here, memorize these dates or you'll end up living in a van down by the river!"

I just summarized Western education; you're welcome.

Our disdain for discipline starts soon after our first day of school and grows as the stakes are artificially inflated. We're taught to pass arbitrary tests, but not why work matters.

We learn that work is drudgery, something that's reinforced when we enter The Real World.
How do we opt out? You could always sell your worldly possessions and live in a Bhutanese monastery. (I hear it's tricky to get a visa.)

But it's far easier to change your mindset.

I propose a platform we can all get behind:  Make Work Fun Again.Let me show you how.

Maximizing Your Investment Dollars
Why just buy advertising when there is so much more you can do to develop your company's brand?


Advertising is great, but public relations and community affairs build relationships. Sponsoring events and programs through the Longview Chamber of Commerce includes all three branding strategies in one effective multifaceted strategy.

Sponsoring these events and programs gives your company the publicity and 
brand recognition you need in a positive and receptive environment.   Business leaders recognize and appreciate companies that help them gain knowledge and make important contacts.

The 2019 Total Resource Campaign (TRC) is kicking off soon. The Campaign will run until November 6.   Click here for more on TRC!

If you interested in volunteering or supporting this year's TRC, please contact Stephanie Raudales
