Marketing Advice: Take advantage of the tools available for your online marketing. Your front door has moved from your physical location to your Google business listing and your website. Claim your listing, beef it up, work on getting reviews and responding properly to reviews.
Thoughts on the unicycle: Just hop on and go - I have yet to actually test this theory

Thoughts on the unicycle: Not too difficult to ride, turning is a different story.
Zac grew up in the Twin Cities dreaming of becoming a super spy or a cartoonist. After discovering that all the best super spy's come from the United Kingdom, he decided to pursue the cartoonist route. Graduating with a B.S. from the University of Northwestern St. Paul, he got his first job as a part-time animator for a digital billboard at YourSpace Advertising. Making a brief stop as a fraud specialist at Target headquarters, Zac started animating for One Wheel and hasn't looked back. When he's not creating animations for One Wheel clients, you can find him whittling, creating sculptures, extreme Netflix binging, mountain biking, camping, and doodling.
What he loves about working here: There are so many things that make OWM great; It's a tough tie between our quirky team and getting to do what I absolutely love of animation.
Marketing Advice: I'm still in a phase of learning so much myself. From the eyes of an animator, animation involves a lot of problem solving, patience, and more patience. These things are important.
Thoughts on the unicycle: I imagine its a painful learning process.
Danielle comes to One Wheel with a love of writing and helping others succeed at their dreams of building a business. Prior to One Wheel, she worked as an Adult Ministry Director at a local church and started her own blog on faith and purpose for women. Through her blogging experience, she learned the science behind copywriting which uses a perfect blend of her skills of strategy and creativity. When she's not writing and improving SEO for One Wheel clients, you can find her biking on the trails of Minnesota, reading a good book, hanging out with her dog Moose, and making a mean pot of homemade spaghetti sauce.
What she loves about working here: The variety of clients I get to write for. So many interesting businesses!
Marketing Advice: Clear messaging. Keep it short and sweet and directed at your ideal client.
Thoughts on the unicycle: More wheels are always better!

Thoughts on the unicycle: I’ll stick with my bike ;)
