A Good Problem to Have
Est. Reading Time: 2 minutes
I’m not a big fan of clichés, but I’ve been hearing this a lot lately… “That’s a Good Problem to Have.” I’m not so sure that there is ever a “good” problem, but there are certainly varying severity levels. It’s busy at Beacon – busier than I can remember since Beacon opened 12 years ago. Busy is good. Managing it is the challenge – certainly not a problem. To give you an idea, here’s what’s going on…
- Sep 8: Moderated NCTA’s Emerging Technologies & Trends Breakfast in Greensboro
- Sep 13-14: Four (4) of us attended the Hannon Hill Cascade Server User Conference in Atlanta, Brad & I spoke at one of the sessions on Sep 13.
- Sep 14-17: Brad & I attended the Google Analytics Certified Partners Conference in Mt. View CA.
- Oct 6: We announced our partnership with Bridgeline Digital.
- Oct 13-14: A Beacon contingent traveled to Boston to meet with two of our clients, The Princeton Review (web marketing strategic planning) and Framingham State University (Cascade Server CMS training).
- Oct 20: Google staff will visit Beacon to collaborate on Adwords campaign strategies for several of our clients.
- Many new faces – Trained five (5) new employees since August 1; Nine (9) new employees in 2010 with four (4) open jobs still to be filled ASAP!
- Everyone continues to post great information to our blog regularly – showcasing the talent and personality of Beacon. 133 posts this year – so far!
- Several large scale projects (web marketing, web development, consulting, hosting) are in progress, just starting or wrapping up with Winston-Salem State University (NC), Apex Analytix (NC), Biscuitville (NC), Georgia Tech (GA), The Princeton Review (MA), Bassett Furniture (VA), Basin Electric (ND), Burton & Burton (GA), Los Alamos National Labs (NM), Servigistics (GA), University of Houston (TX), Framingham State University (MA), University of Hartford (CT), G-Force (Sealy), Pines International (KS)– to name a few.
Yeah, it’s busy and some may say this is a “good problem”. As I see it, it’s more of a testament to the talented and dedicated people here at Beacon.
