If you’re in the Twin Cities, you’ve prob­a­bly seen inde­fati­ga­ble entre­pre­neur Teto Wil­son on the air­waves, in mag­a­zines, on bill­boards, or at com­mu­ni­ty events. Through every­thing he does he keeps his North Min­neapo­lis neigh­bors cen­ter stage, and he’s affect­ing real change: He hosts town hall events to fos­ter com­mu­ni­ty con­ver­sa­tions around key top­ics at his...

An action figure of Bruce Willis in Die Hard is set on the edge of a buildling
Am I a Bruce Willis fan? Yippee-kay-yay…well, you know the rest. A quick spin through IMDB.com reveals that I’ve seen more than 40 of Willis’s movies at least once, and some – like Die Hard and Pulp Fic­tion – more times than the Nakato­mi Tow­er has floors. The recent news that the for­mer Mr. Demi Moore is step­ping...

Photo of T-shirt that reads, "Your Mom Goes To College"
We intro­duced our daugh­ters to “Napoleon Dyna­mite” in all its dorky, gawky, quotable glo­ry over the week­end. Trust me, if you haven’t worked “Your mom goes to col­lege” or “Gimme some of your tots” into a con­ver­sa­tion late­ly, you’re miss­ing out. But it’s more than just an enter­tain­ing flick. While it’s most­ly about an awk­ward Ida­ho...

A Playbill for The Music Man is held up in front of a stage
Oh, we got trou­ble. Or at least we have for the past two years as COVID has impact­ed near­ly every aspect of all our lives. But as always, a sil­ver lin­ing is start­ing to become clear. Or in this case, I guess, a brass lin­ing – com­plete with 76 trom­bones lead­ing the big parade, with 110...

Graphic of children's book on textured gray surface
I’ve nev­er been a big fan of rodents, but when they come bear­ing com­pli­ments, that’s anoth­er story. When I opened my email last week I was greet­ed with a delight­ful sur­prise: a mes­sage from Lau­ra Numeroff, cre­ator of the beloved “If You Give a Mouse a Cook­ie” books. You remem­ber them: the New York Times-best­selling children’s...

Ornaments hang on a Christmas Tree
It was while watch­ing “A Christ­mas Sto­ry” for around the 800th time over the week­end that I real­ized I should prob­a­bly offer Ral­phie a job. Sure, there are some down­sides, most­ly that he’s fic­tion­al, lives in the 1940s and also is nine years old. But the upsides are plen­ti­ful. In his quest to per­suade his par­ents...

It’s not exact­ly break­ing news that the past two years have been tough on the media. And in Min­neso­ta, prob­a­bly no out­let has faced stronger head­winds recent­ly than Upsize Mag­a­zine. When the region­al busi­ness magazine’s co-founder and pub­lish­er Wes Bergstrom died in Spring 2020, the pub­li­ca­tion went on hia­tus, fac­ing an uncer­tain future. Enter Andy Tel­li­john....

Intro­duc­ing our newest team mem­ber, account coor­di­na­tor Chioma Uwag­wu. Chioma is a 2020 grad­u­ate of the Uni­ver­si­ty of St. Thomas in St. Paul, where she majored in – deep breath – com­mu­ni­ca­tion and jour­nal­ism with an empha­sis in per­sua­sion and social influ­ence and a dou­ble major in cul­tur­al studies. As you might expect from that mul­ti-faceted...

Four women sit around conference table
We talk a lot about the peo­ple of Bell­mont Part­ners, and how our agency cul­ture dri­ves our abil­i­ty to deliv­er excel­lent results for our clients and our community. We’ve received a lot of atten­tion for the work we do, and we’re extreme­ly proud of that. But today, we’ve been rec­og­nized for the most crit­i­cal foun­da­tion­al ele­ment...

Brown index card with three shapes that reads Pop Culture Incorporated: Five Marketing Lessons from Squid Game
Netflix’s mas­sive hit “Squid Game” is packed with nail-nib­bling ten­sion, heart­less dou­ble-cross­es and cut-throat (lit­er­al­ly) com­pe­ti­tion. If you haven’t seen it, imag­ine the chaos and cal­cu­la­tion of a throng of peo­ple angling to score the last Tick­le Me Elmo on the shelf in 1996, only with a lot more green tracksuits. Mil­lions of words have been...
