Hey lunch buddies.  Happy New Year!  I had a great time with family and friends.  I did, however, miss my first of the year deadline for publishing the new NickLeRoy.com redesign.  The good news is that it is up now as of Monday night (2nd).  The bad news is that I had one hell of a time revamping the site and several pieces of content over the past 7 years are now missing.  All 16 of the past #SEOForLunch newsletter issues are on the site now and I’ll work on backfilling some of the key pieces […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas.  For those (like me) who are working this week I hope it’s a week of buckling down and really kicking butt to end the year on a strong note.

I’m looking forward to 2017.  I have a lot of professional and personal goals that I’m finalizing.  If you haven’t yet, consider jotting down a few goals that you can hold yourself accountable for next year.  Push yourself out of your comfort zone – you won’t regret it.

Happy new year in advance – please be safe and I’ll […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  I’m off from work this week which means doubling down on family time and getting a few other items wrapped up before the new year.   As I mentioned last week, a complete redesign for NickLeRoy.com is underway and I’m hopeful it is launched before the end of the month.

I’ll keep this message short and sweet.  Merry Christmas in advance and I hope everyone has some well-deserved time off between now and the new year.

Hey lunch buddies.  The countdown to Christmas begins.  It’s hard to believe we’re a little less than two weeks till the big day.  This past weekend we went out and got our tree.  Nothing too huge this year but a 9.5 footer will do the trick.  My wife and kids have also decided to put up two fake trees downstairs in addition to the small 1 footer my 5-year-old son has in his room.  I guess you can say that the Christmas spirit is in full swing at the LeRoy house.

Work is good.  Continuing to see […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  This weekend was a blast.  My wife and I took our 3 kids to Disney’s on ice show over the weekend.  They had an absolute blast and it was fun to take them to a big event.  We also picked up our Christmas tree over the weekend which added to the fun.

From a work perspective things are starting to calm down from the Thanksgiving madness.  I have a consumer product goods (CPG) client who hit their first ever 1.5 Million organic visit day prior to Thanksgiving.  We were all thankful for that this […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.   Happy belated Thanksgiving to my U.S. subscribers.  I hope you had a restful day full of turkey, potatoes and of course football.

Everything above sums up my Thanksgiving.  Besides the Vikings losing, it was a great day.  It’s hard for me to complain when I have a day off of work and uninterrupted time with my wife, kids and other family.

The short week before Thanksgiving was crazy.  In fact, my apologies for not sending out a #SEOForLunch newsletter issue last week.  I was at the office with a colleague until 9pm finishing up […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  I hope everyone is having a great start to their week.  Last week was full of catching up after a few days in Boston.  I was fortunate enough to have limited meetings which made catching up relatively easy.  This week looks like a great opportunity for getting ahead on deliverables.

On a personal front, the weekend was good (minus the Vikings losing AGAIN).  I was able to catchup on some housework and get some much needed car maintenance done prior to our nasty Minnesota winters.

Just a reminder that I respond to all emails. I’ve […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  I’m back from Boston.  It was a quick trip but a great mini get-away.  We saw quite a few attractions and the food was simply amazing.  Definitely recommend going if you’ve never been.

While on the plane home I wrapped up Dale Carnagie’s How to win friends and influence people in the digital age. I really enjoyed the book and found it valuable from both a business and personal perspective.  I wrote up a quick review for those looking for books to add to their reading list.

Hey lunch buddies.  I hope everyone had a great Halloween.   I know my kids sure did.  The girls dressed up as Buzz/Woody and my son was Batman.  There was definitely no shortage of candy this year between the multiple pre-Halloween parties and the bit of trick-r-treating we did last night. Another fun night in the books.

This Thursday my wife and I take off to Boston for a “long weekend” to celebrate our anniversary.  We are planning on doing a bunch of touristy stuff but if your local and have tips for us on what we absolutely […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  Last week went by insanely fast on my end. My little guy turned 5 years old on Tuesday – he requested pancakes for his birthday dinner so we took the family out to IHOP.   We followed that up by taking a dozen kids to an indoor playground this past Saturday.  Fun times at the LeRoy household.

On the business front, still wrapping up that new blog post I’ve mentioned in past newsletters.  I’m less concerned these days with getting new content out regularly but making sure it’s something extremely valuable for you guys.  So […] Read more
