Everything You Need For Sochi


For one month every four years, the best of the world come together to compete for their country.  As athlete’s compete in Sochi, spectators around the world tune in to catch the action.  While the first Winter Olympics in 1924 consisted of 16 events, the current model has approximately 47 events over 15 disciplines.

With all of these different sports and confusing rules, how are you supposed to enjoy the coverage if you don’t even understand what you are watching?

Luckily, we are here to provide you with THE comprehensive guide to every Olympic event. We will start by breaking it down by two categories, Snow Sports and Ice Sports

Best Place to Work Finalist

4s Website

4th Strand would like to share some exciting news! We received the honor of being a finalist (out of over 600 companies) in Atlanta’s ‘Best Place to Work’ 2012 contest in the small business category.  To earn this prestigious recognition, thousands of employees were polled to get real opinions about the companies where they work.  People love to work at 4th Strand and here are some obvious reasons why:

  • We have a relaxed atmosphere for people to produce in without that unnecessary corporate stress.
  • We have fun.  As an example, we created a great online tool to make project work easier and PURPOSEFULLY named it the ‘TPS Report’.
  • We have a business model that enables us to employ good people that continually strengthen our business. When people feel secure, they’re just plain happy.
  • 90% of us show up in flip-flops, unless of course we have a client meeting, which necessitates a temporary wardrobe change.
  • We eat lunch together. Daily. It seems trivial, but we find it’s a great time to refresh, connect and catch up with each other.
  • We ONLY use Apple products. Networking, laptops, desktops, WiFi, you name it  - nothing but Apple products!
  • We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We aren’t too proud to laugh at one another and enjoy the moment, whether it’s an opportunity for improvement or a success.

4th Strand would like to thank the Atlanta Business Chronicle for this amazing honor and wishes continued business success to all the other finalists involved.

Farmer’s Tan

grass compare 2


True confession: My wife won’t let me cut the grass. I know. It’s sad. No seriously, it’s not what you think. She loves to tan while she’s out there hacking away at our lawn.  And like any good husband, I want my wife to be happy. Who am I to rob her of that?

I wish she had come with us to test walk-behind mowers on a 100-acre field of fescue for 10 hours a day. She didn’t even offer.

Last month we tested over 17 new types of mowers. Here come the farmer’s tan jokes. We hauled them out to the great state of North Carolina and began cutting away at over 100 acres of fescue sod.
