LEAD Brevard High Ropes Challenge!

2016leadbrevardropes-3Last month my LEAD Brevard class hit the high ropes course as part of a team-building experience. We conquered challenges that required team-work, brainstorming and some facing of fears! It was an incredible experience to work together with leaders from across Brevard and to face their fears with them.

The last thing we did was climb some crazy high ropes and walk across things that your mind tells you that you shouldn’t walk across! I found myself volunteering to go second in my group… this coming from the guy who was so afraid of heights when he was a kid that he couldn’t climb a ladder!

It was a thrill to cross the beam and then drop down to safety. Boy was I glad to be back on the ground. I was then able to encourage and be there for the other members of my group as they challenged their fears and scaled the course.

It was a fantastic experience and I will remember this day spent with a great group of people for as long as I live. Life is full of challenges, but those challenges are so much easier to traverse and conquer when you have a team to support you through it all… and I had a great team!

It reminded me of the team I am a part of back at Rock Paper Simple and how we band together not only to build websites, develop brands and launch digital marketing campaigns, but also encourage each other to grow, support one another, solve problems together and sometimes even help each other conquer our fears. I am blessed to be a part of such a team. Thanks, guys! (and gals!)

….one of these days I’ll have to share what cured me of my fear of heights years ago. But that’s a story for another day!

10 Reasons You Might NOT Want To Hire Rock Paper Simple (The Glorious REMIX!)

Joshua Adams Rock Paper Simple HappyBack in March of last year, I was up far too late and had far too many cups of coffee… so I wrote the 10 Reasons You Might NOT Want to Hire Rock Paper Simple and posted it to our poor unsuspecting blog. We all had a good laugh and got back to work. Well, a few months ago, our very own Russ Wood (he’s awesome, give that man a high five if you spot him), converted this goofy blog post about NOT hiring us into an awesome graphic that has since been printed on all sorts of fun stuff! Since we now have a much cooler version of the 10 Reasons, we decided it was time to make sure everyone got to see this glorious remix!

So… anyways, we totally realize that not everyone is a perfect fit for Rock Paper Simple and even if you are looking for web design in Melbourne, FL, we get there might be perfectly valid reasons NOT to go with us. Below are best reasons we could come up with after a very deliberate (and caffeinated) brainstorming session. If we missed any big ones you can think of, please, you must immediately notify us by any means necessary! Whatever it takes, email, post card, phone, telegraph, carrier pigeon; get that on over to us ASAP and if it is indeed a legitimate reason, we will owe you a big high five (and a coke… we will owe you a coke too).

Without further ado… I give you the 10 reasons! (well, actually, I give you one more line of italic text AND THEN I give you the 10 reasons)

We have come to terms with the fact that if one of these are you… it is very likely you will not use our services. We understand, do not fault you and will wait patiently for your circumstances to change.

 

10 Reasons NOT to Hire Rock Paper Simple

10 Reasons You Might NOT Want To Hire Rock Paper Simple

the-world-is-coming-to-an-endWe realize that not everyone is a perfect fit for Rock Paper Simple, so we decided it was about time to sit down and figure out who they would be. After exhaustive research (and about a dozen visits to Starbucks), we think we have come up with ten very good reasons why you might not use Rock Paper Simple to build your website.

We by no means are excluding you if any of these are true for you, however we have come to terms with the fact that if one of these are you… it is very likely you will not use our services. We understand, do not fault you and will wait patiently for your circumstances to change.

  1. You are an in-law of one of our staff members.
  2. You don’t like orange and we use too much orange in our website.
  3. You have internet-phobia and the very mention of INTERNET scares the living daylights out of you.
  4. You enjoy the thought of not having an awesome website. (masochist)
  5. Your primary demographic is the cave-men of Mars and we have no experience with that demographic.
  6. You do not like to talk to friendly customer service representatives. You prefer them grumpy and rude.
  7. You prefer long wait times on hold listening to terrible music when calling your web company.
  8. You have a devious plan to ruin the economy by NOT selling anything.
  9. You are mired in quicksand and moving to dial our number would result in sinking to the gritty depths.
  10. The world is coming to an end and thus you have no need for a website… since without a world, it’s kinda pointless.

 

Ok, so we are really just having a little fun and being silly. But hey, what’s life without a little fun?

(no in-laws, economies or worlds were harmed in the making of this post, although we had an accident when testing #9… we are still looking for Chris in the quicksand)
