In today’s time, having an attractive and functional website is very important. Most people would check on a company’s website before looking into the services being offered by the company. Having a great website simply means giving the right first impression to potential clients. Gerber Consultants help businesses improve their websites through a number of ways, mainly to help them build more organic traffic to their website, either for leads or for ecommerce. After that has been established, Gerber Consultants help them make sure that the key terminology they're using on their website is what people are actually using on search engines. This company also helps them restructure or rewrite some other content to focus on those high value search terms. “I noticed other people advertising for building websites, or for doing search engine optimization, I thought, well, that's really interesting. So I started to look through the ads. And I looked at what they were doing, and how what they were saying, and how they structured their ads a little bit. And so then I decided to build my own ad off of that.” – Thomas Thomas Gerber is the owner of Gerber Consultants, a consulting company that specializes on WordPress Websites, SEO, Project Management, and Family History Research.

Developing the ability of your kids to do problem-solving and critical-thinking is important especially if they’re in their younger stages.

Some of us might have heard of regenerative medicine before, but never had the chance to really know what it’s all about. We have Dr. Ross Carter today to share his personal experience in going through regenerative medicine. Ross was playing this game. It's going great. And then one time, he caught the ball wrong and landed on his back because his knee just blew out. He never had an injury before in his life. He limped off the court and went into his car. That was the end of his dodgeball career. What happened was he had torn his ACL, had injured my meniscus, and actually caused a minor fracture too. So I recovered generally from it.  “I wanted to help other doctors because I knew I noticed there was a problem in the industry is not a lot of people understood it. So I started learning more. The more I learned about it, the more I wanted to educate other doctors on what the truth was in this industry.” – Ross Ross Carter is the owner of theRegenerative Warrior Podcast, a podcast that specializes in regenerative medicine.

And from there, as you get to know your clients and people that you meet, is one thing that I think a lot of people are missing is we do things just for the sake of doing things and not from a heart space.” – Jessica Lee Jessica Lee is the CEO and one of the founders of NVENN, a company that has a mission of  changing the world through beauty and hair.
