Graduation and Growth:

Mastering the Next Level in Business

May 2024 #5

Welcome to this graduation edition of The Compass. At JamboJon, this season deserves reflection. It’s a time to turn around and look down the mountain at how far you’ve come. In this edition, we spotlight our recent graduates and how their unique skill set can give your business a fresh vantage point. In our tech tip, we’ll explore the shortcuts that make life a little less demanding. You’ll get to meet our team member, Shanda Aurich, and hear the latest developments in the FCC’s decision to level the playing field with net neutrality.

As an added bonus, we sat down with our mentor and friend, Jonny Johnson, co-founder and owner of JamboJon, to get his advice for those just starting out or wanting to level up their businesses and websites. One of our most recent case studies shows this advice in real time with an older website that needed some attention. Finally, we’ll answer your burning questions about our experience in different fields in our FAQ section. As always, share the love with family and friends - forward them the latest edition of The Compass for insights into the business and marketing world. Last but not least, we wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mothers and mentors!

Meet Shanda Aurich

Web Developer for JamboJon Websites

If you ever gaze at the night sky and feel inspired by a sense of wonder and amazement, you’re not alone. Shanda Aurich, our web developer, is also our astronomy enthusiast, and the skies over Washington State awaken a desire to soak in all the knowledge she can. To keep both her mind and body in shape, she enjoys jogging and feeling the sun warm her face. For her, a deep breath in the great outdoors provides one of life’s simple pleasures. 

Shanda recently completed her degree in web development and computer programming. When she’s not plunking away at  a computer, she loves to read fantasy and science fiction novels. Mention Lord of the Rings and watch Shanda’s eyes sparkle! This proud mother of four finds developing for JamboJon incredibly fulfilling, and she’s constantly growing her programming skills. Being part of a dynamic team and contributing her talents to each project has been a rewarding experience, and she’s excited to see where this journey takes her.
