How We Think


The Idea

“New Year, New You” mantras are pretty cheesy. But, beyond the skin-deep calls-to-action, the idea of reflection is crucial.Every January, we take time as a team to reflect and set goals both personally and business-wide.  In 2013 the “Doctor became the patient,” (we feel for you!), as we addressed two nagging needs: a portfolio and a website that feels more like “us.”

…and voila! It’s 2014, and our new tools have become a priceless addition. It’s amazing what happens when you set an intention. Stop by for coffee and see our printed portfolio (it just feels so good in the hands!). For now, check out our refreshed website and our brand-spanking-new video below.



How it Affects You

The clean slate mentality of the new year is intoxicating. (no wait, maybe it was the champagne?)  But often overlooked in this rush of exciting new goals, are the habit patterns and ruts we face year after year.  Your business is no different, and stale marketing that supports status quo will leave you reinforcing that deep groove each year.

So take a moment.  Really.  Step away from your desk, think big, and determine what you want for your business this year.

  • Do you want to be the leader in your field?
  • Do you want to increase sales?

Ask yourself:

  • What parts of your marketing went well in 2013?
  • What didn’t work?
  • What would you like to improve this new year?
  • Can you do it alone or do you need help?

Green Rising can help you get past the resolution slump in March, and keep you going strong in the 4th quarter.


So, what now?

There’s room to grow – for every. one.

Friendly reminder: we’re coming out of the recession, and it’s time to spread your wings.  Don’t take this time for granted, shed the blanket of caution, and make a real commitment to growth.

Perhaps you see room to nurture your employees, double revenues, or just get the recognition you deserve.  There will always be calls to answer, emails to write, and fires to extinguish, don’t spend another year just keeping the boat afloat…SAIL THAT SHIP!

And call us…we promise it will be exciting.
