    If you’re anything like me, sitting at a desk for eight hours a day can be pretty taxing on the ol’ joints. I’d wager that at some point or another, all office dwellers suffer from some form of physical discomfort because of their daily 9-to-5 routine. Check out this list of a few of my favorite yoga poses you can use to combat achy hips and legs, lower back pain, eyestrain and everything in between. Continue reading >

    I grew up as a very competitive athlete. I was involved in all kinds of sports. Quite often in sports, you hear inspiring and motivating quotations from coaches and team leaders. (Side note: Why don’t business leaders give more pep talks?) Continue reading >

    See, it’s my job and my passion to know the skinny on what’s cool around Greater Des Moines. To appreciate construction and public art and fresh flowers on Fleur Drive. To brag about Broadway shows and public playhouses. To beat a path to the door of any new eatery in town.
    But I think my view was becoming filtered, like an Instagram picture. My elevator speech about life in Greater Des Moines was a little stale... Continue reading >

    Realizing I should let it go with an “Atta girl, Ellie, I’m proud of you for knowing the difference,” I instead launch into a lecture about the difference between prescriptive and descriptive ways of viewing word usage and grammar. Being 13, Ellie doesn’t give an inch and we reach an uneasy détente—her insisting that grammar is an infallible set of rules that must be adhered to 100 percent of the time... Continue reading >

    At the end of the day, everyone ultimately wants to be featured, quoted or have their business profiled - and why not? It’s good for your business. Let’s face it; at one time or another, you’ve probably seen a business featured or somebody quoted and thought, “Why not me?” Trust me, you aren’t alone... Continue reading >

    This is the world of sales. We busily seek out and have the privilege to work with great customers. We develop rapport and diligently serve our customers in meaningful ways. Life marches pretty fast -- especially in the world of sales, where you are juggling a million things at once. Salespeople know it is easier to keep a client than to acquire a new one. However, do you have a customer appreciation and retention program plan in place for your business that is timed, thought through, personal and meaningful? If you don’t have a plan, it won’t happen.

    When my wife and I moved to Greater Des Moines 11 summers ago, our two daughters had just finished first and second grade and were still getting quarters from the tooth fairy. 

    Now, in what seems like just a few months rather than years gone by, we’re getting ready to send our graduating senior off to the University of Northern Iowa this fall, and our younger daughter hopes to visit some colleges this summer. Continue reading >

    As humans, I don’t think most of us really like the thought of disruption. Sure, it kind of sounds fun to disrupt someone else, but it feels a little different when someone is trying to disrupt you. Continue reading >

    Over the last couple of years, I have developed a fondness for fiction.  I never saw myself as a person who would enjoy being consumed by fantasy worlds, especially those with mythical creatures like vampires, dragons, werewolves and the like.  I also never imagined that dramatic battles, intense romances and gory death scenes would capture my imagination and emotions.  But, all it took was one gloomy, rainy Sunday, what seemed like a month’s worth of laundry to fold, and a “Twilight” series movie marathon on cable, and I was hooked.

    One of the things I like about working at Business Publications Corp. Inc. is that we’re trying to become a healthier workplace. So when I realized that May is Bike-to-Work month, I decided to take the Des Moines Bicycle Collective’s bicycle commute challenge. Continue reading >

    One day during my senior year of high school, as I was buried under a mountain of college pamphlets and application paperwork, my dad approached me to talk about a school one of his co-workers told him I should consider. Although I had explicitly told him that I refused, under any and all circumstances, to attend a school in Iowa, he got it in his head that this Drake University place might be a good fit.

    You are considering placing an advertisement in a print publication like a newspaper, magazine or our weekly Business Record. Good choice! Even though everyone is saying that print is a dead medium, you’re still reaching thousands of readers. In fact, this article from Forbes explains just how print is NOT dead. However, just because your ad is in a print product doesn’t mean it’s actually making an impact with the readers.

    So, let’s see what we can do to make your ad powerful. I’m going to give you some of my key tips to creating a great advertisement.
