Lucy Kelleher, Keep them Loyal




Lucy Kelleher, founder of Keep Them Loyal, worked as a litigation paralegal as well as an elementary school teacher. As a paralegal, she quickly learned how important it was to stay in contact with other attorneys, experts, service providers, and clients before, during, and even after a case concluded. Many times, when a “rush service” was needed Lucy knew who she could contact that would be willing to work with their office because Lucy had built up a relationship with them that wasn’t just about what they could do for us. Lucy learned their names, their offerings, more about them on a personal level. Lucy would stay in touch between cases.

Mother’s Day with Linda Gorin, The Best to You

Mother’s Day with Linda Gorin, The Best to You

Today my guest is Linda Gorin, The Best to You. Linda and I will be talking about her business and next weekend’s celebration of Mother’s Day.

The Best to You began as a hobby in 1984. Soon, creating festive gifts for special people became a passion. Back then, the dining room table was the design area and a big order was more than six baskets at one time. It’s fun to remember when the thought of having their own gift basket company seemed like just a dream. It started to become a reality when they opened our first little shop in 1985. As the business grew, Linda celebrated six expansions. Today, The Best to You enjoys a reputation as one of the finest gift basket companies in the industry. They have been featured on Channel 8 and Channel 10 numerous times. The Best to You is in the business of delivering memories!

The Best to You team takes that very seriously. We deliver joy and good will. We build grand displays of appreciation. We send “you can do it!” style encouragement, and “we’re all thinking of you” style comfort. We deliver “work of art” welcomes and memorable farewells. We deliver fun and excitement that create impromptu celebrations. We send morale skyrocketing with our employee thank you gifts and deliver warm, fuzzy feelings of home with our college care packages. We’ve been responsible for expedited wedding proposals, rekindled romances, and when someone’s having a horrible day, we can change tears to smiles.

Our team of creative imagineers is constantly thinking of new and unique designs to thrill and delight. They are master memory makers! If you ever have a custom request, a question, or just need some additional information, feel free to call. We love hearing from you!
