Marketing consultants, web developers and graphic designers specializing in traditional and digital marketing

Seize the day. Share the love.

At Blue Door Consulting, this is the code we live by. It is {literally} our daily mission to make the most of every moment, every project and every client interaction. We want everyone (including each other) to feel cared for in a manner that brings our core values to life: brutal honesty, collaboration, responsibility and idea-producing with a long-term approach.

It’s not that we don’t make mistakes—we do. But seizing the day and sharing the love means we own those mistakes and we make them right. This is what makes us unique. It’s one of the reasons both clients and team members say they work with us.

Playing to our strengths

Clients also say we’re “real.” We take that as high praise.

We strive to be true to our individual selves, playing to our strengths when working with clients and each other. When team members join Blue Door Consulting, they take the Clifton StrengthsFinder® assessment to discover their unique strengths. (If you’re unacquainted with StrengthsFinder methodology, it emphasizes what’s right with people. Polling organization Gallup has looked at engagement rates among employees who use their strengths and found team members are 8 times more engaged when leaders and team members use a strengths-based approach. [1] By understanding each team member’s aptitudes, our team can tap into one another’s strengths for team and client projects. (You can check out each person’s strengths below.)

With this approach, everyone wins: Blue Door Consulting team members dig into satisfying projects that showcase their talents. Clients enjoy deliverables created with the zest that comes with doing strengths-based work.
