JWilson Pix

To say that Jess Wilson is passionate about photography would be an understatement. With over 20 years of photography experience, Jess has truly positioned herself as a professional in her niche. What started out as a “lifestyle” photography business (helping families document their special moments), has over the last year transformed into a business focused on helping entrepreneurs. Jess noticed that many entrepreneurs become overwhelmed and struggle to create quality content for their online marketing.

One of the main things that sets JWilson Pix apart from the competition is the way the packages are offered. Instead of a traditional “time-based” pricing model, Jess provides a content-based model. All images come with a non-exclusive commercial use license and are delivered within 24 hours or less of the shoot date.

When asked what motivates Jess to be an entrepreneur and business owner she replied, “My family and being available for them. My husband is a wild land fire fighter, so being able to make my own schedule and put my family schedule first has been a huge blessing.”

iDrive Entertainment

Located in the heart of Silicon Slopes, iDrive Entertainment is a company that has created a groundbreaking approach to team building. Our crew went to visit their office a few weeks ago in order to get a more hands on idea of how they’re changing the team building game. iDrive helps teams learn how to communicate more effectively in an, “on the go, fast pace experience”. Now, since words alone don’t really do justice to the iDrive experience, we have included a brief video overview below to give you a better idea of what to expect.

Gone are the days of reverting to the cliche “trust fall” game, or taking the team to a movie (where no one really has a chance to work together and bond). If you’re looking for a truly unique experience for your next team building activity, you seriously need to consider iDrive. You can take your team to them – or even better, they can bring the experience direct to your office! Make sure to book them for your next company event!

Lulu’s Crafty Corner

Lulu’s Crafty Corner is a local “paint your own ceramics” shop with locations in Provo and Payson, Utah. They have everything from dinosaurs and mermaids to plates and mugs to paint. The shops are great for birthday parties, corporate events, family reunions, girls nights or just because!

The business was started about 3.5 years ago by sisters Kathy and Birdie, who developed a love for painting ceramics from an Aunt who would take them to paint when they were children. When asked what she loves most about this business, Kathy told us “I love the magic of art. It slows your heart rate, lowers your blood pressure, calms you and makes time stop. It is pure magic to see people talk and reconnect with one another and not even want to look at their phones while they’re here.”

Make sure you head over to their website at: https://www.luluscraftycorner.com/ and sign up for their birthday club to get a FREE mug to paint on your birthday!
