November is here and it is the perfect time to tell you how grateful we are at Bounce for your readership and support of our monthly newsletter, Bounce Ahead.

This is our 6th edition and we hope that you find it to be informative, fun and helpful as you consider your marketing, sales, business development, branding and communications needs and goals. Thank you for being a part of our growing community.

In this month’s issue, we share our take on the notion of year-round gratitude, why it matters and how you can show your community, clients and colleagues that they matter to you and that you appreciate them.

And why not? Being kind and thoughtful is contagious, free and easy to do. But only if you mean it!

With love,
Ada

Bounce Marketing and Consulting, Something to Consider

 

Something to Consider

The fall is typically our favorite time of the year at Bounce. The weather cools down, the leaves turn glorious colors, and a sense of warmth embraces us as we look ahead to the upcoming holiday events with loved ones, to reflect and to celebrate the close of another year.

Awwww, that sounds so nice and cuddly doesn’t it?! But that’s not 2020

During this crazy year, depending on your industry, your skills and frankly, your willingness to think and act differently, you are either scrambling to adapt, scrambling to keep up or just flat out scrambling.

Things Worth Sharing

  • Somebody somewhere once said: “If there’s one skill you have to master in any business, it’s how to sell.” That somebody was probably a salesman, according to Josh Sloan from LeadFuze. Selling is a skill that can be developed. It’s not just for extroverts.
  • One of the regular links inside Bounce Ahead is the inclusion of It’s In Queens, a list of fantastic cultural, foodie and arts events happening all over our hometown, curated by the Queens Economic Development Corporation and its Tourism Council. Thanks Queens, for proving (again) that it takes more than a global pandemic to stop us.
  • Here are 10 mascots of brands that you probably know by heart. But do you know who inspired them to succeed? The team at Bored Panda assembled this great list. We always thought Mr. Clean looked a lot like Yul Brenner. Who knew?
  • Stefanie Flaxman from Copyblogger shares how to love rejection and what she has learned from it. Business rejection, that is. (Hint: we all fail. Expect it.)
  • Bonus relaxation link! Vlogger TinyTrainTracks has created a great 3 minute video of a tiny LEGO train traveling through a big forest. Sometimes all you need is a little break to recharge. Check it out!

Bounce Marketing and Consulting, Small Business, Queens, Lulu's Bakery

(Small) Businesses We Love

One of our most favorite places in Queens is Lulu’s Bakery, a family owned and operated maker of all sorts of baked goodies, located in the heart of Fresh Meadows, Queens.  

Lulu’s has been in our community for more than 10 years and in 2016, they won the Food Network’s Cake Wars baking competition. Since then, our little local secret has gone pop! 

They are moving from their original location to a brand new (and much larger) location a few blocks away. Bounce salutes Charlie Tola and the entire team at Lulu’s Bakery for striving for excellence, being great bakers and of course, re-investing in our local community. Congratulations and see you soon!
