Creative Gathering
Creative Thinking

Creative thinking can lead you down many paths, it allows you to explore the essence of “out of the box” thinking. Gathering knowledge allows you to expand and further develop your creative thinking and enhance your processes and strategies.
This isn’t about selling you anything or preaching a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s about learning as we go, sharing what we find that is interesting, relevant, or pretty darn funny. Functionally, this process is a healthy tool for SEO and helps us promote new thoughts or ideas that are hanging on the fringe and haven’t exploded into the mainstream market yet.
