Waterfalls in Kansas? Tell your friends about it!

Hi there!  As you may or may not know, Mission Repair has locations in Kansas, and we’re not just the “flatland” that you picture when you relate the the state.  The fact is that most of Kansas is FLAT and boring to drive through if you’re traveling across country on Highway 70, but there is a cool website that talks about some of the features and attractions in each state.  Here in Kansas, they are promoting a “Water Fall Tour” and have it mapped on their website!

I know for a fact that my California friends think that I live in a wheat and sunflower wasteland here in Kansas…but we Kansans have a few hidden gems up our sleeves.  I was intrigued, and I think that I’ll take the trip via motorcycle here soon.  I thought I’d share!

Have a good morning, Ryan

Love is in the air, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.  Some people find it difficult to select that perfect gift that means so much.  Candy and roses always seem to do the trick, but you can surprise them with something unexpected. Think of that cell phone or tablet that is always by their side, and if it’s damaged, needs a new screen, or could benefit from some other service: We have a special for you.  Once it’s repaired, every time they look at their trusty smartphone they will always think of you.  Sometimes it’s good to be the hero, and Mission Repair is here to help.

Use coupon code “HEARTS” online or when you visit one of our locations for any new order placed with us.  Coupon code expires 2/14/16 at midnight, so act fast!

Have a great weekend, Ryan

Winter is hitting Kansas City today!

Hello there friends,

I was just watching the news and the weather report came up; it’s not looking good here in Kansas City over the next couple of days. Get out the winter coats!!

gloves

Apparently this weekend it will be 8 degrees F on Sunday morning, and with the wind chill it’s going to feel like minus 10.

Minus 10?  That’s just a bit too cold for me.  I’m a California boy originally and while I do love Kansas, it’s these days that really seem to make me rethink moving back to the beach.

I considered that very move about 8 years ago, but talked myself into riding out the Kansas experience.  Too much more of this and I’ll be packing my board shorts and flip flops for somewhere warmer.  Do you have a room to rent?  🙂

Ah, it’s just Mother Nature stepping in to do her duty, and I can appreciate that.  I’ll ride this one out, I’m not working this weekend anyway so I can curl up and cocoon myself in the house.  Stay warm wherever you are; I have some friends that live in Florida that keep sending me pictures of the thermometer.  I get it…it’s warm.  Thanks!

Take care, Ryan

Wake up and smell the coffee!

I’m up. I get it, it’s a little early (about 5am!) and I could be asleep. I don’t need to be into the office until 10am today, but sometimes I get my best work done in the middle of the night. It’s a curse and a blessing at the same time.

I can really attribute my excellent mood to my iced coffee and bacon today. The house smells amazing!

So for those of you that aren’t morning people (Dandra, you know who you are!) I’m here to motivate you to get up, get ready, and take on the world today. It’s going to be a great December 30th.  Check out the wikihow page on “how to wake someone up“.  #1 is to brew a cup of coffee!

For some of you, you already have tomorrow off. For even more of you, you also have Friday off. This could mean a lot of long weekends for millions of Americans so make today a good one.

So when I say “Wake up and smell the coffee”, I’m not intending to mean “Hey, try to pay attention to what’s going on”…I’m really saying, “Wake up and smell the coffee.” It smells great!

Have a wonderful day, I’m working on some end of the year tidbits for Mission Repair, it’s tradition. I’ll see you back here soon.

The millionth day is coming!

Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.05.07 AM

I’ve been talking abut it all year and it’s probably true that this is more important to me that anyone else, but we are approaching 1 million unique visitors and reads on the Mission Repair Blog (that you’re reading right now!) and as of today we are getting very close:

This month marks a very special place in our history, and our Repair Blog will reach 1 million unique visitors sometime in the next few days. At the inception of the blog several years ago, I didn’t realize the time commitment and dedication it takes to reach such an astounding number of people. These are people just like you, and I thank you for reading it. If you’re not already a subscriber, you can preview the blog here and subscribe if you’d like!

On the “Millionth Day” (as I’m calling it), we will be celebrating with some great specials, announcements, and prizes. I will be watching closely and as of today, October 7nd, 2015, we are currently at almost 998,000 reads and counting. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to write and you’ll have to check the blog for the never-before-seen specials and giveaways that will appear very shortly. See you there, it will be a cyber party and I’m going all out!

So I’m still contemplating about a giveaway. What would you be most interested in? An iPad maybe? How about a new iPhone? Recently we donated a GoPro camera to a worthy cause and that seemed to be a huge hit. No matter what it is, I’ll announce it soon so check back here often if you want to get in on the action!

Take care, Ryan

Your order has shipped!

“Thank you!!! You guys rock.”

The single line customer testimonal we received from our customer, Peter, when he got his email that his iPad was shipping back to him.

This brings up a great point that I don’t talk about too much…but monthly we repair thousands of devices for customers and all goes to plan. Our process works, our customers are happy for it, and we get to repair/service another day.

Thank you Peter for that awesome email. That kind of thing makes the world a better place. It was a great start to my day…TGIF!

Take care, Ryan
