It All Started With A Chair

2016 is a significant year for SGC. It will be our 10th year anniversary in September and this milestone will not go without a proper celebration. And to think it all started with a chair.

Now I know what you’re thinking. Typically one starts a new venture with a business plan. A new business needs seriously thought out structure including goals and budgets, forecasts and revenue predictions. Where would …

If You Give A Kid Fifty Dollars…..

Those of you who read my blog posts know I can’t speak highly enough of my staff, including their kids. I have somehow created a company and atmosphere that makes us feel more like family than any other place I’ve ever worked. My Administrative Staff’s children have been part of my business from day one, and nothing makes me happier than including them in some of our benevolent activities. …

Why Not Us?

WHY NOT US? How beautifully arranged – these eight letters of our alphabet. Three simple words currently bringing such pride and joy to our home in Central Pennsylvania. A modest, unpretentious phrase uniting a team of boys and their community. Not only has it catapulted them into the limelight and hearts of our State of Pennsylvania, it has brought them worldwide recognition and admiration. Why not us?!

I would be …

It’s All in the Family

Walt Disney once said, “A man should never neglect his family for business”. How could someone whose brilliant mind created the likes of Mary Poppins and Mickey Mouse be wrong?

My father, an 87 year old with more energy than Tigger from Winnie the Poo, is a constant presence in SGC’s daily business. Not a day goes by where we aren’t treated to him popping in to see …


I’ve had several jobs in my life.  In fact, I’ve had several careers!  Who knew the young girl working at the Hershey Drug Store soda fountain back in 1972, making hot fudge sundaes with CMW (chocolate, marshmallow and wet walnuts) for the Hershey Factory workers would one day be in the Technology industry?  I didn’t even know what a computer WAS in 1972.  Even in college computers were reserved in …

It’s Just Like Being In Kindergarten, But Spring Break Is Ohhh So Much Better!

Must play well in the sandbox. I repeat. Must play well in the sandbox.

Must love goals.

Must enjoy competition.

Kicks in the gut only make you want to work harder. “Kick me harder!”, you say every morning before work.

The ability to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep on smiling is a daily activity.

If you don’t know how to prioritize, you will be crushed.

Owning a …

Keeping Tabs

We have committed ourselves to give back to some wonderful, local organizations in our community. One of them is the Hershey Ronald McDonald house. There is nothing we enjoy more than inviting one of our clients to cook dinner with us at the house while the residents stroll through the kitchen to see what is being created that makes their temporary home smell so good.

One of the ways the …

It’s a New Year and I Just Can’t Contain Myself

There’s nothing better than starting a new year. You get to make up fresh spreadsheets filled with hopeful objectives and glance at a clean, white calendar not yet filled with the scratch marks of cancelled appointments or rescheduled meetings. All of our 2014 folders can go in the closet once we go to Staples and buy new containers. Nothing feels better than being organized and starting out the year with …

Talking Turkey

This time of year gets crazy – no matter what industry you’re in. In our country Thanksgiving is billed as a holiday in which we gather with family and loved ones to enjoy a feast of traditional foods and old fashioned customs. For some people this moment of togetherness is bearable for about the length of the meal – 15 minutes. After the last bite of mashed potatoes and gravy …

Impressions Matter

We’ve all heard it – you never have a second chance to make a good first impression. How true this is both in our personal and professional lives.

I recently attended a seminar on Branding Your Business, taught by an amazing company called Ephyra Group and sponsored by the Technology Council of Central Pennsylvania. In summary I learned what’s important is what is said about you when you’re not …
