Help – Leaf Magazine

read leaf fall issue

Remember last week when it dawned on me that asking you guys for help might be a good thing. (BTW, thank you for the photographer  and lighting recommendations and the printer is still available.

I have a doozy of an ask for you today.  Week before last the Leaf team  (Susan, Lynn, Marti and I – unfortunately John and Roanne couldn’t join us) met down in Connecticut for a day to plan our 2013 Editorial calendar.  We have lots of exciting things in store, but as we talked we all started to agree that the time that we had been thinking will come someday…is actually here, now.

When we started Leaf, we thought…someday we will have more than 100K readers (we now have over a million).  We thought that someday we will legitimately have created something of value….nearly 2 years later and heading into our 3rd year…. we are in the black and we have some big time advertisers and supporters, and we were recently shocked to hear that some of our greatest inspirations and admired outlets in the media world now see us as competitors.   We are still getting used to it, but the bottom line is that we have arrived in a place where we are confident that Leaf has a purpose, a place in the market, a seat at the proverbial table, and staying power.   That is what we set out to achieve….So now what?

We are setting new goals and higher expectations and in order to achieve them we need help.   We need help in navigating the media world, business development,  managing growth, publishing, technology and investment.   We have come a long way on our wits but the success of Leaf thus far proves that this a thing that deserves more.

What can you do?

Can you help us find the right people?  We are looking for investors, partners, media moguls and technology masterminds that can help take Leaf to the next level.   Maybe you can introduce us…maybe you are that….either way…please get in touch if you think you can help.

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

After so many years of installing countless commercial and residential holiday containers, I could do it in my sleep. Seriously, winter containers have to be the easiest thing you can throw together in less than 20 minutes and I’m going to do you a favor and type up the quick and dirty 101 of getting…

Things are Going To Be Messed Up

UPDATE: You can see it is taking shape — hope you like it so far….still working….but getting there!! A serious change up is in order around here and while it is happening, things are going to be a little off. I tend to do these things myself (I just like to have my fingers all…

A Tale of Improving Weather, Gardening and Anaphylactic Shock

The snow is piling up (over the windows at this point) and my cabin fever is turning into a strange and crazy thing. I think I might be developing photokeratitis. We’ve run out of firewood and the oversized roof-cicles are making me feel like I live in a cage. So it is no wonder that…

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

My wife asked me as we drove with our four kids from Maine to North Carolina, what I would like for Christmas. You know the feeling of not really wanting anything other than warmth, good company, good food, and a healthy, happy family. Well, I am having those feelings this holiday season but there are…
