Instagram Stories help make decisions

A few things I’ve got my eye on in Seattle and beyond thanks to Instagram Stories

November 8, 2017

Doesn’t it feel like we have the whole world at our fingertips lately?  I so love Instagram and the community it creates.  Last week I was at Costco and I saw an awesome-looking snack from Nature Valley and I wasn’t sure if I should buy it.  I asked about it in my Instagram Stories and […]

Women’s Small Business Month at Zulily

October 13, 2017

There are so many world-renowned businesses that have their roots in Seattle and when I see their names in other places when we travel it’s hard to believe that these companies ever started small.
