Head of the Class
Many congratulations to, well, us! More so to Chris-Anna and Wendy, who started Luscious Verde Cards, because last night, at a gala event in the Cleveland area, we were named on the top 10 of the Weatherhead 100.
Sponsored by the Council of Smaller Enterprises and the Case Western Reserve University School of Management, it's a yearly event and listing that honors Northeast Ohio's fastest-growing businesses. We drank wine, ate food, and Jason even wore a suit. OK, now back to the holiday grind (not that we're complaining)...
As the holidays quickly take over our lives, we wanted to do something extra-special this year and create a holiday card to ship to our military friends to send to their families. By taking a rendition of our popular “Believe” holiday card in shades of green, we’ve created a unique background for our troops to apply a photo and a special note for their loved ones. In you have friends or family in the military you may be a lucky recipient of one of these cards! Yay! Pictured in the photo is Jim Primozic, the big brother of Kelly, one of our beloved print production specialists.
If you’re interested in spreading the holiday joy, visit www.operationlovefromhome.org for more details.

As Seen On T.V.
Tune into CNBC tonight, Thursday, October 9th, for an interview with Wendy, one of Luscious Verde's co-owners, on "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch," at 10:00 P.M. EST. She will be interviewed in a segment about small businesses bucking the trend of the recent economic downturn. Go Wendy!
ADDENDUM: "The Big Idea" was pre-empted last night for coverage of that pesky worldwide recession thing. We'll let you know when Wendy will be on TV. Thanks.
