Action Button

Often when we read the news we feel compelled to do something but we don’t know how. Action Button is an interactive technology featured on news content to make it faster and easier for you to impact the stories you care about — whether by donating to a nonprofit, signing a petition, or emailing a local policymaker. Don’t just read the headlines, change them.

Love where this is going.

Know Yourself Cards for Self-Exploration

Know Yourself Cards for Self-Exploration

I recently purchased The Know Yourself Cards for Self-Exploration by The School Of Life and they sure keep me on my toes. I am currently trying to answer one question a night.

ViewMaster Job Application

View Master job Application

The bar for the “most creative job application” ever received has been raised. Last week, Ryan Beller dropped off a white box with a beautifully arranged ViewMaster inside. Clicking through it revealed his resume and cover letter. Consider me (and the rest of team Tattly) impressed!

Update: We offered him the job. And, he accepted. So, YAY!
