Beauty Is Where You Seek It

There are many places that we expect to find things of beauty: on the seashore, at an art museum, in the night sky.  However, as I was watching a football game yesterday I was struck by the beauty of a well-executed pass.

Let me start by explaining that I am not a football fanatic.  I enjoy watching my children play and my husband coach football.  I also enjoy watching the Patriots in their weekly game and playfully harassing my husband as he roots for the Ravens.  Outside of that, I don't need to spend any additional time watching

Creativity- A Key Ingredient for All

When my children were little, their days were filled with many games of imagination. My daughter loved to create scenarios involving princesses, ball gowns, and fancy parties. My son would build Lego structures and create adventures for the people and animals that lived within.  Whether playing on their own or having other people partake (I did a fine job as both princess and adventurer), the stories they told were creative and detail-oriented. I quickly learned that they had visions for how the stories were to be told and gladly let them take the lead in these games.

They're

PeKu Milestones- September 2014

Every month we take a look at anniversaries that are being celebrated by both PeKu and its team.  This month we have two to recognize.

First, we have a writer that is in a class of his own. Joe Lawrence began writing for PeKu when we first launched in July 2008.  He wrote for us while deployed with the US Air Force and while starting a family of his own.  In March 2011, Joe decided it was time to focus on other aspects of his professional and personal life.  Much to our delight, he returned to PeKu in

Whole New Look for PeKu

Except for when PeKu was a very young company, we have redesigned our publications constantly.  Typically it takes about eighteen months for us to work through all of our publications, and then we start the cycle again.  Creating new looks for each property keeps things fresh, interesting, and engaging.

This summer we decided to redesign PeKu, the corporate site, even though it had gotten a new look in the spring. Working with our newly hired marketing coordinator, she and I decided that we needed to tweak the new design a bit more.  Once that look was complete, we

Returning to Former Roles at Work

If you haven't performed the tasks involved in a role, it can be difficult to explain them.  Although you may understand what is required, the experience of actually completing the task may highlight unexpected problems or shortcuts.  At PeKu, I have grown with the company, and thus I know the roles of writer, editor, marketing coordinator, and CEO.  However, even though I have worn all of those hats at one time or another, it is good to return to those roles occasionally.

Obviously, I experience the work of a CEO daily.  I also work in the role of
