How NOT to Spring Clean

Spring is a season of light, warmth, flowers and spring cleaning. But who wants to spend these warm and breezy days cleaning? Wouldn’t you rather enjoy your time with family or at spring events?

In January of this year, TLC Home celebrated 10 years of  business. Throughout the year we created specials, posted on Facebook, and made an effort to do more speeches and networking. But I couldn’t figure out how to top it all off in a celebration. How do you throw a ribbon cutting for a business that started out as an organizing service? Do you just throw a party at a restaurant, or could we make it more unique to what TLC Home does?  My answer came in September in the form of...
