For awhile I’ve been wanting to leverage the blog I’ve built up to recognize folks I come across that for whatever are reason, are awesome in who they are or what they do.  It’s hard enough to find great talent, service, or resources in a day and age where we are overwhelmed with information.  Good people are hard to come by, and I feel compelled to share the ones I come across here and there if for no other reason to promote them as they certainly deserve it.  Consider this volume 1 of an ongoing series I plan to use to highlight some of these amazing folks.

Cheryl Couris – Designer Extraordinaire    Blog    Twitter

Cheryl is the best plain and simple.  A great designer, and amazing attitude with everything she does.  She’s helped me on countless occasions including this very blog and more recently my Facebook splash page.  In addition to design work, she’s got a terrific blog worth checking out and an Etsy store where she sells unique creations.

Mitch Horn – Tattoo Genius    Website    Facebook

Yep, I got one last year, and let me tell you, this fella is the real deal.  I lucked out big time hearing about Mitch from a friend at work, and he delivered above and beyond.  I had an idea of what I wanted, and he took it to a ‘whole ‘nother level.  It’s one of my favorite things in the world now, and just like he told me in the chair…I’m already wanting another.  And make no mistake that he’s who I’d go to hands down.  If you are in the Seattle area and ever are considering, don’t hesitate to reach out to him.

Spencer Gates – No B.S. Personal Trainer    Google+    LinkedIn

One of my recent blog posts featured a quote I loved from Spencer, and it pretty much sums up his approach to life and I embrace it…no shortcuts.  I worked with Spencer for awhile off and on, and my wife has since for over a year.  He’s been amazing for both of us, and he’s everything you’d ever want in a personal trainer.  No excuses, crazy knowledge of fitness and nutrition, and a natural communicator.  Again, if you’re in the area, look him up first.

Know of anyone who deserves to be in the League of Awesomeness?  Would love to hear in the comments.
