The Fall Season
Dance is kicking in full time. In addition to school - @sparkleslund is training a lot DPAC dance studio and layering in her professional work over the top. We have been working with a friend (@directorbrazil) of ours from Los Angles to rework her branding. It has been a great experience to watch professionals from the entertainment industry work their craft. She will be launching a new website sometime in the next month and she is doing a video project to share her values with other kids. I am amazed that someone so young can feel so natural in front of a camera. She has a long ways to grow, but she is starting off strong #proudpappa.
We expanded our WAV Group consulting firm by adding a corporate communications business. Here is the release on PR NewsWire.
Our RE Technology business is doing great. We are super close to a watershed moment. Since founding the company in May of 2010, we have been installing our solution into about 2 MLSs each month. We are pretty close to 100 publishing partners. I am not sure if we will ever hit 1 Million readers, but we are over 750,000 right now. The best part is that the team at RE Technology has been there for over three years, and that is when the magic happens in a business. They really understand our principles and our customers. It is a great groove to be in.
Our friend Dan Dow is taking the helm in the District Attorney's office. We are really excited for Dan and his family and have already heard from numerous people that work in the DAs office about the positive change he is bringing to the office. It is great for our county to have such a strong leader.
County Supervisor and we are supporting Lynn Compton. Our county is strongly driven by agriculture and Lynn gets that. She is also raising a family here and understands the many ways that families play the most vital role in retaining the quality of life that is so fundamental to our community. Her focus is more on principles than on tactics. That is a good place to lead from.
I really have a good feeling that this election cycle is a boost to business. My hope is that private companies play a more significant role in the economy than government, but we are a long way from that in California today. There has been a ton of M&A activity among public companies in our industry, signaling that big business have lots of access to capital. I am hopeful that there will be more M&A activity among private firms - that is a stronger signal of health since most employers are small to mid-sized private companies.
Thats all I got. Welcome to October - one of my mother's favorite months of they year.
