President’s Message October 2014

By October 13, 2014December 22nd, 2017blog


“Start with the end in mind. ” – Stephen R. Covey, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.

Where does the time go? It seems like yesterday Drew and I were sitting in our tiny office in Drew’s parent’s house working on our business plan. Now, 11 years later, as we look back we are grateful to the people and community around us that have helped pave the way to our success. To show our gratitude we are throwing our annual open house “Shocktoberfest” on October 16th. Grab a costume, enjoy some local food and spooky ambiance, and come celebrate with us. Our newest staff member, Lou Perlaky, will be there along with the rest of the crew. The Nampa Chamber business after-hours will be at Peppershock in conjunction with Shocktoberfest.

In preparation for Shocktoberfest, the holidays and everything else, all of us at Peppershock have agreed to participate in a health challenge. Part of the challenge includes being more physically active, so naturally, we signed up for the Idaho Wine Run! I ran the 5k with my graphic designers, Erick Gutierrez and Alex Rhodes, well they ran, I ran/walked…


We love Idaho wine and because we want to share it with the world we are hosting an event on November 8th that you won’t want to miss: Clips, Sips & Bids part Deux—A work-in-progress screening of the Idaho Wine Documentary will be shown at the Egyptian theater.

Check out our Signature Half-Day Workshops this coming January. Save an afternoon: Two dates, two locations, same presentation, select January 8th at Fisher’s Technology or January 15th at Peppershock Media Office and Studio. Rhea Allen will take an in-depth look at the marketing trends for 2015 and Chris Taylor of Fisher’s Technology will talk about: Identifying and Hiring the Best Employees and Culture & Strategic Execution at Fisher’s. We will also have a special guest speaker to announce soon. Nampa Chamber business after-hours will be at the Peppershock Studio on January 15th.

We are always looking for solid feedback, good, bad or indifferent, it’s how we grow. If you have something to say about us, let us know! And as always we are powered by referrals and always appreciate kind words to others. Who do you know that could use our services? Check out our portfolio and case studies!
