On a recent virtual martini with The Bureau’s own David, discussing the deep divinity of doing kind deeds — a favorite topic of his, in words and in actions — an interesting topic came up, through a conversation that’s as twisty as a snake: has the cost of creating a website gone up or down over the last 20 years?

I recently read an article about managing your professional decline, and laughed, why would anyone want to manage their professional decline when they can prevent it all together.

Our agency is frequently called upon to brand or rebrand organizations, which entails creating or defining their brand vision with the goal of creating brand loyalty. We’ve found that one of the easiest ways to increase brand loyalty is to be kind. I’ve found this to be so impactful that I recently directed a feature-length documentary called Kindness Is Contagious about the benefits of being nice.
