July was a big month for Ruben Digital and our clients! We launched several websites, filmed a few videos, traveled a bit, and enjoyed summer fun around the community.
Let’s Celebrate Our Clients!
We’re excited to announce the launch of a local innovation: DaPocket. Northbrook business entrepreneur & inventor Jack Gale created a highly functional hands-free pocket that allows you to drive and talk on your phone, check texts, conduct business, grocery shop, cook, and walk! Check out DaPocket’s video on their website (created by XVP Studios). This item is especially useful for older adults who tend to misplace their phone or don’t want to carry it because its too heavy!
Real Estate Attorney Ben Weaver started 23 Legal with a simple mission: To help his clients. He believes that a good lawyer should help you, not stress you! We’ve enjoyed running 23 Legal’s strategy on social media and are thrilled to share Ben’s NEW website! Watch his video to find out how he can help you with your real estate needs.

Watch Now: “When Does Social Media Become Too Much?”
In an impromptu conversation, Nate gives Cole the inside scoop about his break from social and they discuss how the two of them differ in their social strategies for business. This video was filmed by Cole’s digital creative content agency Apollo’s Bow!
Around The Community…
Ruben Digital and Innovative Engine collaborated to lead an educational workshop “How to Launch your Own Profitable WordPress Business” at NEIU College of Business and Management. Nate exchanged ideas and laughter with the students as they worked on their websites. Be on the lookout for future events this fall!
Multi-Chamber Business Expo
A summer networking highlight was the Multi-Chamber Business Expo on July 22nd at the Hilton Chicago/Northbrook. Shout out to all of the fantastic people who organized and executed this event! Pictured are Jack Gale (DaPocket), Frank Karkazis (FGK Services), and Robin Fields (Toffee Break Desserts).
We wrapped up July by kicking off the annual Northbrook Days festival with a special Northbrook Chamber BAH event. Members were excited to supported this networking evening set the record as their largest turnout! A special thank you to Howard “Top Dawg” Wallach, who gave us a shout out since all 3 of us were in attendance for the first time in months! We were all smiles catching up with Tom Len and Robyn Kole!
Guess What? Hannah’s Back from South Carolina!
She stayed in Columbia, SC with her dad for two months and loved the opportunity to explore another city, meet new people and of course soak in the hot weather! Hannah found her groove grabbing coffee at The Corner Blend, hitting the weekly Saturday Soda City Farmer’s Market, sweating in Hot Yoga Masala, and enjoying the river walk behind their apartment.
Before Hannah returned, Michelle met her in Charleston, SC for a fun girl’s weekend! Summer is very humid in Charleston, but they had fun relaxing at Folly Beach, walking around Downtown Charleston, visiting the historic Angel Oak Tree, and browsing fun local shops such as Second Street Coffee, Savannah Bee Company, and Playa Bowls.
