The Power of Simplification

July 2024 #7

Welcome to the July issue of The Compass. Summer is a time to enjoy simple pleasures: sipping lemonade on a porch, watching the kids run through the sprinklers, and lying on a blanket watching a colorful fireworks display. Did you know that simplifying can even improve your business? This month, we dive deep into the art of doing more with less. Our feature article cites famous examples of how simplification resulted in tremendous success. You’ll get to know Kylee Priest, our professional graphic designer and developer, and poke around in her mind for her best tips for effective web design. 

Just for fun, we thought we’d put the JamboJon kids in the spotlight to break down the logistics of web development in easy-to-understand ways. Read up on a recent project that shows how minimizing a website can expand its reach. Finally, we address a frequently asked question: How do we keep costs low at JamboJon? Join us in discovering the many ways simplicity can lead to success. We wish all of you a Happy 4th!

However, the key to sustainable success might be closer than you think. You created a business from scratch, relying on creativity, hard work, talent and a purpose behind everything you do.
