Flip the Script I don’t know about you, but I’m determined to put what I learned last year into perspective and let it be my guide for the year to come. I recently reflected with my daughter on what we can take away from last year and use to make this year far better. Among the lessons we’ve both learned: In the face of uncertainty, adapt. Practice patience. Be grateful for the little things. Lead with kindness. Together, we persist. I’m working every day to embody these ideas — as I work with my beloved customers, spend time with my

5 Things 2020 Taught Me as a Small Business Owner

Written by Kayla Riggs — from the perspective of Lisa Riggs 2020 was the year no one could anticipate. Marked by tribulation and turmoil, uncertainty and irregularity, last year gave the term “unprecedented” an entirely new meaning. From a global pandemic to a divided country, 2020 forced us to change the way we socialize, work, and ultimately live.

What It Means to Connect Why do people wear shirts and hats (and anything else you can think of) emblazoned with their favorite sports team? Easy — to feel like they belong and to show everyone a little piece of who they are. It’s not just for big-name sports teams. That concept is true for your business, your event, or your fundraiser — when they’re excited about where they work, what they participate in or what they support, they want to show it.  I see examples of this every day in my work with all kinds of people who want custom socks

Sock it to Test Anxiety

“The first time I administered a standardized test, two of my students became sick from test stress. As I finished reading the directions, a tiny girl raised her hand. Her eyes filled with tears and she told me she was “seeing colors.” It turned out; she was suffering from a migraine. Soon after, a boy raised his hand and asked to go to the nurse. He left the classroom quickly, and immediately threw up,” said Jill Eulberg, Veteran Educator, M.S. Special Education, on WGU.edu. Does this situation sound all too familiar?
