Cycle of Success – More Great Clients

Here’s another installment of our Cycle of Success 

We love talking about our clients and sharing in their many successes. Here are a few more highlights.


I’ll never forget the calls we made for Gov. Dunleavy’s campaign on election day. Being in Alaska, these were the last GOTV calls we had to make that day. Our team was tired. Our voices were hoarse. Some folks had been on the phones for 12+ hours already! But the way our folks rallied was nothing short of inspirational! Thank you Brett Huber!


We’re so thankful for the support and kind words of the talented crew from the Bacon team.


Powerful cause, incredible team – we have the best clients.

Thanks for checking in!

Fun Friday – Greatest Floor Speech Ever?

“There was no battle with, or without velociraptors.”

There’s a phrase you probably never thought would be uttered on the floor of the U.S. Senate. And yet, it did and it was awesome.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to feed your tauntaun.



Women’s History Year

I guess I missed posting anything about Women’s History Month. The government says we celebrate it March 1 – 31, but I say we celebrate it all year so I’m doing a post about it in April.

I know many hardworking women who do incredible work, while wearing heels and juggling a million other things like families, demanding schedules and challenging situations.

One of those women is Gov. Kim Reynolds. I read this article a few weeks back and it made me even more proud of our great governor. Not only is she a woman and a leader, but she’s a conservative.

There’s this article too, that discusses that not only has she shattered the glass ceiling herself, but she’s elevating women into top positions in her staff.

Who’s a woman you’ve looked up to?

Thanks for reading,

This is me with Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of Susan B. Anthony List.



Things I’m Into These Days

Hello once again, friends. I thought I’d drop in to share a few things that have caught my eye lately.

Namely this beauty.

Just a friendly reminder that my birthday is Oct. 8. 

This is one of my Top 5 business books – Pitch Anything: An Innovative Method for Presenting, Persuading, and Winning the Deal by Oren Klaff. I like my business books with a strong dose of action and adventure, and this does not disappoint.  You can read my full book review too.

Before all the pundits have said it, I’ve been saying it. It looks like Beto-mania has reached new levels.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.


What are you into lately? Any books I should check out?

Thanks for stopping by,


National Puppy Day – Fun Friday

In my mind, every day is National Puppy Day. I mean, with a face like this, how could it not be?

Apparently, March 23rd was a time for Americans to celebrate puppies. We’re going to extend the holiday just  a bit and celebrate puppy’s on this Fun Friday. Here are some pictures to make you feel great today.


And of course, we celebrated the Chief Canine Officer on National Puppy Day. I guess we’re going to have to keep a closer eye on those purchase orders. We seem to have accumulated quite a few Greenies.


Have a great weekend,


Pollie Time

Today I will be speaking on a panel at the American Association of Political Consultants Pollie Awards Conference discussing “Business of the Business: Strategies for Resolving the Off-Year Cash Crunch.” #2019pollies

You can check out my bio. 

And if you’ll be attending, please find me and say ‘hi’ – I’d love to chat and catch up.

The Pollies are a great time for those in our industry to network, get an update on cutting edge changes in campaigns and find opportunities to grow business. I am looking forward to catching up with old friends and taking everything in. I’ll be sure to update you afterwards.

Happy April Fool’s Day – The Office Style

If you know me, you know how much I love The Office. I stumbled upon this post, “14 ‘The Office’ April Fool’s Day Pranks.

A few highlights:

  • Put a co-worker’s stuff in the vending machine.

  • Dress and mimic one of your co-workers

You can read the full post here. 


I do think this article is missing one great prank that Jim and The Office team pulled – Dwight Meets “Asian Jim”. For your viewing pleasure

Have a great day!


Fun Friday

For today’s Fun Friday post, I thought I’d share a couple pictures to make you smile.

I found this one online and it gave me a pretty good laugh. You know, I love books.


Last week (3-14) was Pi Day and of course I had to share this one – I know it will come in handy for you.


And finally, #CHQ‘s very own version of the Schrute Buck. Yes, it’s worth the same ratio of unicorns to leprechauns as a Stanley Nickel. Dwight Schrute and The Office should always appear in Fun Friday posts.


Have a great weekend!
