Does it even count as summer if you don’t attend the county or state fair near you? This week is the county fair in my hometown and I have been dreaming of funnel cakes and fried twinkies (which, for the record, I have never had it is merely the novelty of the idea that amuses me). I also have high hopes of spending about $75 to play a rigged carnival game to win a stuffed animal I could have otherwise bought for $10 and frankly, don’t need. It is going to be a good time!
And if you are one of the local businesses that participates in the fair I want to sincerely wish you the best! One of my favorite parts of the county fair is seeing the booths and tents put up by local businesses and learning about new ones and supporting what they do. You are the heroes of the week!
Happy Fair Week!
Stuff we wrote this past week:
On Tuesday, you woke up, and with that you had choices. Choices about how you were going to use this precious day. Whatever you decided to do, I hope you were all in.
On Wednesday, it’s been a crazy summer. The list of places Tim and Ryan have been is exhaustive so they wanted to share with you some of their expert-ish travel tips in a new episode of the Funny Business Podcast.
On Friday, Marjorie Kay Hicks kicked off this week’s Practically Social followed by an interesting read about the health risks of being lonely and an awesome video put together by Carhartt.
Stuff we liked this week:
First, this. I am not sure what else to say about how incredible this is.
Second, looking for an adventure? This travel agency wants to help. You give them your budget and they send you on a mystery vacation. You don’t find out where you are going until you get to the airport.
Third, speaking of travel, did you know vacation time can improve employee performance? We all need a break sometimes.
Fourth, speaking of travel…again, here are the winners of National Geographics travel photographer contest. Ready for a vacation yet?
Fifth, a glimpse into motherhood.
How can we help you?
Well, so that’s a start to our weekend and yours as well. We’ll grow this a little over time as we add content and think of other stuff. During the week, we’re primarily going to write about the five major levels of The First Order of Business, and we’ll share our best tips on management, marketing, and motivation.
In addition, we take requests. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there’s a topic you’d like us to tackle.
Thanks for your time! Enjoy your weekend!
