Shop Small, Support Your Community
It’s Small Business Saturday week, one of our favorite times of the year at CCC. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, it’s celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which falls on November 30th this year.

Breaking Through Gender Stereotypes: Are We Making Progress?
I planned on writing a post about social media today, either tips on tackling Twitter or answers to some FAQs from clients, but then I came across this video in Slate. Watch it.

So I thought I would share someContinue reading “Brands Rocking Social Media In The Real World”

Life sucks. Not to be a pessimist, but sometimes it seems that everything goes wrong. Sure, there’s always that saying that someone has it worse than you somewhere, but quite frankly, that isn’t always the most comforting thought in the world when you have your own problems.
