Special Dispatch from the Head Sherpa!

This past month has been one of the most exciting in my career! This excitement is similar to when I started MySherpa® nine years ago which gave me some serious “keep you up at night” energy. October marks the month starting, “The Year of the Sherpa” which a self-proclaimed celebration of our clients, employees, partners and the growth and success of our business. We are excited to announce our relocation to a brand new office designed to accommodate our growth! Our new digs are located at 2060 Limestone Road which is near the intersection of Kirkwood Highway, next to the Wawa. Talk about a perk! Delaware Economic Development Office (DEDO) has been very helpful making our transition from Pennsylvania to Delaware. I would encourage other businesses based outside of Delaware to consider relocating. The process to apply for aid is straightforward and the staff at DEDO are accessible, responsive and very pro-business. Please email me if you need a personal introduction. We are planning a ribbon cutting and we will also hold one or more open houses. Keep your eyes open for our invitation.

We Are All Connected – How Social Media is Finding Us Everyday.

This morning there was a power outage on the west side of town, where I live. It was just one of these random power outages where you don’t think there’s been an accident and the weather seems fine. But I heard all the fans and our alarm clock blip off and I knew exactly what happened. I think one year ago, my reaction to this situation would have been: Get up, go look at cell phone for time, call work if I need to, and go out for coffee. Today, I reached for my cell phone and checked my twitter feed to see if anyone else was experiencing the problem. Next, I also used my cell phone to check the local power company’s site to see any outages. Couldn’t get it to load, so I turned on the mobile hotspot on my phone, hooked up my laptop and was able to look at news reports, Facebook postings, twitter updates and, finally, see the power company’s website telling us we had no power.
