He does beatboxing, bass and tenor. She does alto, mezzo and soprano. Together, they produce heart-warming a cappella covers.

Modern pop a cappella duo Scott & Ryceejo consists of husband and wife YouTube sensations Scott Shattuck and Ryceejo Nordstrom Shattuck. Having wet his whistle for a cappella production and performance during his 3 years performing with BYU Vocal Point, Scott met his future wife, Ryceejo - an incredibly gifted young lady with an even bigger heart whose talents lay in piano, guitar and singing - at Brigham Young University. Even before they were married, this couple was already recording such songs as "I Choose You" and "Stay Stay Stay" together to give as wedding favors. Since the beginning they've always self-produced all of their music. “A bright pop of fresh, high-quality a cappella,” is how one reviewer describes husband and wife duo, Scott & Ryceejo. The award-winning couple from Orem, Utah has garnered the attention of millions of fans and families for their highly original Disney Mashups series, acoustic covers, and a cappella treatments of popular songs. They just released their first Christmas Album, "Christmas" and are excited to be releasing their newest Christmas music video in early December.

Please remember to bring your business cards and, if you would like, a prize to give away during the drawing.

Looking for a great way to network with business owners and professionals? Join us on Thursday, December 20th for our Connect 4 Lunch event hosted by the Pleasant Grove-Lindon Chamber of Commerce. This event was created in response to a survey we sent out to chamber members from the Pleasant Grove-Lindon, American Fork, and Lehi Area Chambers and has become a popular way to network AND enjoy an amazing lunch at the same time!

Connect 4 Lunch will be held on the THIRD Thursday of every month. This event is free to attend - you just need to pay for your own lunch. Please remember to bring your business cards and, if you would like, a prize to give away during the drawing.

Valley Visioning Survey

By 2065, Utah County will add 1 million people to its population, 85% from internal growth. The Valley Visioning process is planning for healthy and meaningful places for our kids to have places to work, live, learn, and play. A process that brings the people of Utah County together to form a vision can address questions like: How can travel in and through Utah County remain convenient? How can we prepare our kids and recruit talent to fuel economic and job growth? How can housing be kept affordable so that future generations can live near where they grew up?
The Valley Visioning process will explore potential growth decisions, and at the conclusion of the process, policy makers and leaders will know which goals and planning strategies resonate best with residents and stakeholders as ways to achieve desired outcomes.
To create a vision for the future that is, above all, in line with what residents want, we’re asking you to take the Valley Visioning Survey today.
Thank you for taking the time to share your desires for the future of Utah County. Please join the emailing list at to keep up to date on the process and upcoming opportunities to get involved, including a series of public workshops in January and February.

Making Kindness a Core Tenet of Your Company

Bill Taylor

Scan the newspaper headlines, or switch on cable news for a few minutes, and it’s easy to conclude that we are living through harsh, mean, divisive times. But a recent column in the Washington Post reminded me of a truth that is even easier to overlook: Just as bad behavior tends to spread, so too does good behavior. Kindness, it turns out, is contagious. The column highlighted the work of Stanford psychologist Jamil Zaki, who documents what he calls “positive conformity.” In his research, “participants who believed others were more generous became more generous themselves.” This suggests that “kindness is contagious, and that it can cascade across people, taking on new forms along the way.”

Zaki’s insight is vital for improving society, but it applies to companies too. Almost every leader I know wants his or her colleagues to go above and beyond normal standards of service, to impress customers with their kindness. Many of these leaders also believe that achieving this goal is largely a matter of policies and procedures — kindness as a directive. Actually, the way to unleash kindness in your organization is to treat it like a contagion, and to create the conditions under which everybody catches it.
