Dig Deep: ROOT’s October Newsletter

Ahhhh… the seasons are changing, and in Colorado, we’re enjoying cold mornings, hot days, and sudden thunderstorms shaking the leaves from the trees; as well pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pancakes, and apparently, feeding the neighborhood squirrels with our painstakingly-carved jack-o’-lanterns.

It’s also National Seafood Month, National Filipino American History Month, AND National Work and Family Month (yes that is a thing and we’re big fans of it!), and that means that three of our clients (Mind Blown, Fila Manila and Kiln respectively) are celebrating this month. Make sure to follow us on our Instagram and Facebook pages to check out ways to celebrate along with us.

Kuvy just got back from Natural Products Expo East in Philly, where she led a session on “Building Community to Build Your Business” with Bill Capsalis of Naturally Boulder. In honor of that, our September’s blog post offered an in-depth “Ultimate Guide to LinkedIn Sales and Marketing That Will Grow Your Business” that you can read right here.  Be sure to watch for our October blog for more info on “Building Community to Build Your Business.”
