What are the reasons that make Thanksgiving so special to our society? I hear so many people get excited for a few days off work and a lot of tasty food but people rarely talk about what they are thankful for when they talk about Thanksgiving.Read More
January makes us think about our goals, it makes us reflect on what we want to accomplish for the New Year. Maybe your personal goal is to lose weight, work out more or connect with more people. Here at Inphonite, we also sat down and thought about our New Year’s resolutions.
For some it’s the gifts, for some it’s the food, for other’s it’s the break and the overall spirit of joy settling into the brisk winter air. While I am a sucker for crafting holiday decorations, drinking eggnog, and shopping holiday deals, I would have to say that the heart of the holidays for me is the time I spend with my family.
The Holidays. The time for family and friends, tree decorating, lights, presents and food. Between all of the cookies, pies, ham, and eggnog it’s hard to think of being healthy. However as we all know, it’s harder to lose weight and return to healthy habits than it is to gain. So, here are some tips and tricks for maintaining your health over the holidays.Read More
It’s Summer here in the Good Olde Pueblo and things have really heated up. With a high this weekend of 106, we have the bright idea of going to Phoenix where it is likely to be 10 degrees warmer. The heat here is all people talk about to newcomers.Read More
Everyone knows that Social Media is about interacting with people. It means forming connections with people to not only get them interested in your business and products but to also get them interested in you as a person to form business relationships and partnerships that will last. What they don’t always tell you, even if it seems to be an obvious point, is that in order to create these online connections through social media sites and through your marketing, you must understand people. What better way to know and understand people than immersing yourself in an environment that encourages social interaction and discussion?Read More
Here at Inphonite we are lucky to be surrounded by great, caring people and to have jobs we love and that can support us. Unfortunately, not everyone is so lucky. When I go home to spend Christmas with my family I am certain of a few things: a roof over my head, delicious food to be shared, and presents for everyone to open that lie beneath a tree that we spent hours decorating. I am thankful for that every day because I know there are so many people that don’t have the luxuries that I do, or even the basic things I sometimes take for granted.Read More
Last year we all received iPads after hitting one of our Sales’ numbers. The company rather hoped the iPad would be a business tool that we could use. There were grand ideas of taking notes during meetings, working on email, and even some other projects.For most of us the iPad became little more than a toy. Some were resold and some handed off to family members. Those of us that kept them use the iPad for reading, social networking, emails and more video games than we’re likely to admit.Read More
We attended the Microsoft Partner conference with a completely open mind this past Summer, wondering what we might learn and what people we would meet in Toronto. We were unprepared for the vastness of the event, though we hung in there and paved our own way as we are apt to do.Read More
The booth is packed and on its way back home, the bags are returned lighter without all the giveaways and swag, and our representatives have arrived safely back home last week. Since MGMA 2012 came to a close I am left to reflect on all the hard work everyone has done to get us to San Antonio this year. Shipments made, artwork designed, flights arranged, rooms booked, meetings scheduled, conference attended, and so much more, all of which took exceptional amounts of coordination and planning. I have always known that Inphonite was comprised of dedicated and organized individuals but never have I been more confident in everyone’s ability to work together to accomplish a goal.Read More
Have you ever attended a tradeshow? Did you know that the electricity, carpet, trash cans, plants, chairs, tvs and various other items are all beingrentedby those of us that have booths? It really is a wonder that companies would rather spend money to rent a cardboard trashcan for $15/day rather than buying a plastic one at Walmart for $5.Read More
I am having a bad day. My hair is a wreck. I tripped up the stairs. My monitor is on the fritz and my coffee date canceled. So I went out to lunch and I came back and blew bubbles. This got me thinking. Gregory, a colleague, was chosen for Federal Jury Duty. He was gone for several weeks. One employee thought it would be fun to put “caution tape” in Greg’s office. What started out as a small idea blew up into a full blown crime scene, and at the center of it, the President of Inphonite lay “dead.”Read More
It's that time of year again—the postcards have been sent out, the art work approved and completed, swag purchased, marketing materials printed and gathered and work has been busier than ever. In a couple of days our annual trip to the MGMA Conference will be upon us, this time in the lovely city of San Antonio. Our representatives will be looking their finest, sporting their blue Inphonite shirts and welcoming guests with a warm smile.Read More
Elandan Gardens is located just off Highway 16 near Port Orchard, Washington. The six-acre site that is now Elandan Gardens was once only a landfill created on the shores of the Puget Sound in the 1930's. In 1993, the Robinson family brought in 30,000 cubic yards of sandy fill dirt and 800 tons of boulders to begin the creation of these impressive gardens.Read More
