We’re pretty big into storytelling these days.  Actually, we’ve always been pretty big into storytelling.  We’ve been telling stories in TV commercials, on websites, and at places of business ever since we created our agency in 2013. In radio ads and on landing pages, we’ve crafted narratives that create a sense of purpose for our clients […]

Words of encouragement: Why word choice matters in the workplace

Words Have Meaning: A speech bubble with a quesiton mark, a speech bubble with ellipses (three dots), and a speech bubble with an exclamation point are displayed on top of a yellow background.

Has this ever happened to you? For better or worse—consciously or not—you’ve gotten in your head about the smallest, “stupidest” things, many of which involve certain words or wording.

We played games and gambled on baby-related outcomes, such as the baby’s name, weight, and delivery date. The Big Baby Book Exchange, of course, was a […]

TQS Public Radio welcomes new personality [VIDEO]

TQS Public Radio presents: Alyssa Boczar, a blond-haired woman wearing a dark red-colored cardigan, sits in front of a radio station-style microphone.
