It’s all about Serving Others, Ignite Lansing 3.0 Video

March 14, 2010 1 comment

Hey all,

I would like to give a huge shout out to the organizers and volunteers and sponsors and everyone else who helped make Ignite Lansing 3.0 a success!

They were even cool enough to put the time and energy into cleaning up our clips (editing out background crowd noise) and putting our slide videos online. If you would like to see mine you can below.  If you want to see the other 14 awesome presenters, as well as the past 2 events, you can see them here:

I thought Ignite was one of the biggest, most fun events to hit downtown lansing in quite some time.  Here’s to hoping there’s a 4.0 sometime in the future!  If you want to learn more about what ignite Lansing is, check out their site here: .

‘Jacktown’ is Getting Connected, One Young Professional at a Time

So if you are in your 20’s or 30’s and you live anywhere near Lansing you probably know what Grand River Connection is.  If not see this previous post from last fall.  Well believe it or not, Jackson has it’s own up and coming young professionals group that has been holding regular meetings for almost a year now!  It is growing and is on a mission to connect young professionals all over Jackson, or even people from Ann Arbor, Detroit, or Lansing who come to the events.

Get more than just a haircut.

Today’s post is a COOL idea from what sounds like a great place!  I have been told of this place by quite a few people, but it was when I was able to investigate on facebook today that I was sold on the coolness of this idea.  Today I am definitely suggesting you check out HIS Barber Shop over in Okemos.

Here is the description of the barber shop from their facebook groupsite.

“This is more than just a barber shop I intend with God’s help to remind people of his faithfulness to meet our needs even during what the world calls hard times, also this will give you a comfortable enviornment if you wish to discuss your walk with Christ and I will do the same and together we can all grow as children of God”

How cool is that?! Plus if you know a pastor or a priest he will cut his hair for free!  Talk about an act of faith to start a business and hold your neck out there like that!

So go get your haircut and have a conversation with the owner about the shop!  Sounds like a great idea to me!

Keepin’ the pipes clean. We Salute You.

If you have been in Michigan anytime in the last 200 years, you have probably had some type of plumbing issues.  Whether it was needing a functional sump pump in your basement, having a pipe freeze in winter, or the everyday busted toilet, you know what I mean.  We’ve all been there, done that, and don’t want to deal with it ever, ever again.  

Well today I want to suggest that if you come across any of those types of issues, whether big or small, get in touch with the guys over at Hedlund Plumbing.  They are owned/run by two brothers who have had plumbing in their genes from two generations before them!  (No they aren’t Mario and Luigi).  They are actually Bob and Tom Hedlund.  They are great to work with, and they take their work very seriously.  If something turns out to be wrong with their work, they come out and make it right.  They are confident enough in their work to say that they will guarantee it for sevearal years!

You can find hedlund plumbing online at:

They’ll get you fixed up right, and won’t make your wallet look like that pipe up there in the process.

Today’s referral I want to throw out there to anyone around Mid, West, or Southeast Michigan who may have a wedding, graduation party, or any other party coming up, that could use some great background music.

You want the perfect soundtrack to accompany your live event?  Then call A Mills Masterpiece Disc Jockey Services.

DJ Chris Mills will meet with you to go through the details of your event and help you pick out the perfect songs to match the different pieces and parts of your event.  You can choose your own special song or rely on his years of experience to pick out the perfect suggestion for you.

If you want to check out their humble home on the web you can go to but I would definitely email Chris at ChristopherAMills @
