I have a very vivid memory of being 23 years old and rallying my little, red Subaru up I-15 in Salt Lake City. It was six in the morning, and the sun was just peeking out over the skyline, and I desperately wanted to continue driving North instead of turning onto 2100 South to head to my job as an image editor for a large, online store in the outdoor industry.
It wasn't that I didn't like my job-- my co-workers were hilarious and supportive, and I loved talking to them while we edited photographs of gear and clothing. I got to work in Photoshop all day, perfecting photos of bike gear, outerwear, and snowboards, which was pretty great, and I got very good at editing product photos.
All in all, it was a cool job for a young designer, and I was grateful to work at a fun company with like-minded people.
It was just that every single day I went to that job, something was missing.

Hey everyone! Amanda here--I'm back and getting down to business at Wheelie pretty hard core this week. I am shocked how quickly the last two weeks went by while I was on vacation. I went on a really fun Mother & Daughter trip with my Momma to Minnesota to visit some family and explore the North Shore of Lake Superior. After two weeks of driving 2800 miles, I was pretty excited to be home, but sad to have my vacation end with my Mom.
I've never had a job that I got home from vacation and was super stoked to come back to work, so that is a great feeling. We have so much fun at the office, and all the projects we have going on right now are a total blast!
Hi, Lisa here from Wheelie Creative. Lately, we have had a lot of business owners coming into our office trying to figure out if they need to re-brand their existing companies. They already have established businesses with varying levels of success, and they want to know if changing things up is a good or bad idea. In my opinion, it could go either way. Ready to geek out with me for a few minutes? Let's talk it out:

I'm starting a company podcast.It's called Outside by Design, and it features adventure stories and interviews with entrepreneurs and leaders in the outdoor industry.
Do I know how to write, record, and edit a weekly podcast and then make it available to download for free in the iTunes store?
No. Of course not. Or at least I didn't a week ago.
Happy Friday friends, clients and family! Amanda here! I hope you all are gearing up to have a grand time this weekend in the Flathead Valley. It's going to be gorgeous so get your playing clothes on. Also, because it is Friday, It's time for another round of "A Wheelie___fill in the blank___week!"
This week was fantastic! So many fun and great things to talk about! First of all I want to start this post off with a big Congrats to the Boss Lady, Lisa Slagle. Lisa just closed on her first home and is officially a homeowner. She claims she bought the house for Scout, true, but also it's something you earned Lisa! ;)
The house buying aside, let's chat about this week at the Wheelie HQ. With several project coals on the fire the week flew by in a total blur. We stared our week off by having a second meeting with our super fun client, Mollie Busby. Mollie is the owner of a new yoga studio here in Whitefish, with what I understand, a second location eventually stationed in Polebridge. The name of this fun business? Well, Yoga Hive Montana, of course, and branding this project has been an absolute blast. Mollie is one of our many clients with an exciting, unique startup company, and she opted for our small business package. We love working with enthusiastic people like the Busby's.
