PeKu News- August 2015

August is nearing its end, and we haven't covered our anniversaries and team changes.

However, it's a quiet month here. We have had no changes to our team but do have one anniversary.

  • Gary Hays celebrates his one year anniversary at PeKu at the end of this month. Gary writes on several publications, including Good Life Review, Parched No More, and 'Bout Green. Within these publications, he writes about eco-friendly living, world travels, and home bartending ideas.

The Value of Emojis (AKA Clear Communication)

Over the past weekend my husband and I traveled to Florida to visit my in-laws. Due to a number of reasons, including sports tryouts, summer jobs, and classes starting, we went without any of our children. While traveling I saw a social media comment written by one of our four that was unclear. Did it mean that this teen was unhappy with me? Was it meant to be a tongue-in-cheek joke?

Peku and I are using this motivational coffee to give us a jump start this morning.  My actual inspiration is the goal to inspire, inform, and engage our audience. What's motivating you?

Nurturer of All (Except Plants)

One of my strongest qualities is my ability to nurture living things. I do this in a myriad of ways, but it is what I do best. I've nurtured my children through the many stages of childhood and teen years. Throughout my life I've nurtured cats, dogs, hamsters, lizards, chickens, and many other creatures. Plants, however, I haven't nurtured as well. Let's just say that I leave the plant care in the capable hands of my husband.
