Eat the Pie

Happy Thanksgiving! There’s so much to be grateful for!   And remember that it’s not all doorbusters and electronics on Black Friday anymore. A lot of companies that cater to small business owners, like 17Hats, Dubsado, Thinkific, Teachable, and QuickBooks (to name a few), are now offering Black Friday deals. So if there’s a service […]

Tech Trick Treat

Trick AND Treat

I hope you let tech be a trick AND a treat for you and your small business.  Happy Halloween 2018 from Flannel Creative!  And may you enjoy your favorite candies from your kids’ trick-or-treat stash.  At our house, there’s an Almond Joy tax.  Yum!

It’s For Fun

Recently, one of my boys was home sick from school so, of course, we had to watch this movie to make him feel better.  If you’re a ten year old boy, it’s pretty dang hilarious.  (Okay, okay.  I admit it.  I laugh just as hard as the 10 year old.) And then, of course, there […]

Learning New Tech

Name that movie… It’s one of my childhood favorites (okay…it’s still a favorite now), and it’s full of amazing songs like this one that I was singing to my kids whether they liked it or not last week.
