Your New Summer Jam + August Ad Space

Dudes, roll your windows down, put on your jean shorts, and prepare to sing loudly at the stoplight while pointing vigorously. I found our new Summer jam.

Also, let’s talk about ad space. I have some and you might want it. Why? It’s suuuuper effective. Look!

Sarah makes everything crystal clear and painless, then rewards you with the eyes and ears of her delightful readers. It’s like a unicorn and a very pragmatic, hardworking squirrel got together and made a squirrelicorn to help your business thrive. – Kristen Kalp
