Introspective Thoughts from the Development Attaché

Author: JLB

Published On: April 18, 2008

                 Winter, then spring, then summer, then fall.
              The seasons continue to rotate amongst us all.
               Every day, the world spins bringing us towards
                               the sun and away, again.

Do you ever feel like your job is a steady constant motion, where you pass by the same faces and complete the same tasks day in and day out?  I have been in those types of jobs, where your assignments are consistent and constant with little variation.  For me, I enjoy the thrill of the unknown and the life of a Development Attaché is one of consistent surprises.

No matter what I sit down and plan out for FranklinIs and JLB tasks, I always get at least five or six curve balls thrown at me.  With FranklinIs, it might be a new advertising client that wants a fun look, or a new non profit that needs to get the word out about their event, or something new that the office needs.  No matter what I may think I am getting myself into, the JLB office is full of fun surprises. 

I don’t know if you have had a chance to drive past our office lately, but you should.  There is new vegetation in the front that accents our stone building.  Yesterday, I got doused in water, as I tried to set the oscillating sprinkler on the front lawn.  It was kind of funny, and I just had to chuckle to myself. 


Then it hit me, watering the lawn and making sure that the ground is nourished is the exact same thing that we do inside the office at JLB. 

Whether we are working on a client’s website, creating email marketing campaigns, promoting events in the community on FranklinIs, or brainstorming ideas with clients, we are in the constant business of “watering” by taking care of our client’s print, graphic design, writing, editing and web needs.  There are many times that I find myself doused with surprises, but that is what makes it fun and unknown.    

Until my next blog, I’ll leave you with this…

Morning, then noon, then dusk, then night.
We can change it up and make it as exciting as we like.
Every night, the stars will appear, it just depends on how you look at them from down here.     



It’s remarkable working with the team that treats your business they would their own with drive, innovation, humility and a shared love of bringing great things to the wonderful Franklin & Nashville community.

“I started with JLB when they first opened fifteen years ago, when they redesigned a website for me.  They are my go-to company for anything to do with web sites. These guys are professional, talented, creative and an energetic team. I will always go to JLB first for my web design work. Thanks JLB.”

We interviewed several web design firms, but found that JLB’s talented team was the most creative, innovative, and professional. Choosing JLB has been a great decision! We are fortunate to have JLB be a part of the BMC Metalwork’s future as we continue to enhance our business.

“There were a number of website design companies in Nashville that would have done an adequate job for our company. The difference was that JLB wanted to be our partner and has been for 11 years. STAR Physical Therapy has been blessed to have them as a teammate.”
