Jill launched our neighborhood newsletter of Eagle Ranch in October 2014 and the publication has thrived and provided many opportunities for Eagle Ranch residents to come together, socialize and connect.

Having lived in Eagle Ranch the past 13 years and having had numerous careers, launching our neighborhood publication as a partner of N2 Publishing has been one of the most satisfying and personally rewarding chapters of my professional life. I work with a team of residents every month to publish our neighborhood newsletter, The Life! magazine of Eagle Ranch. We highlight local families, pets, athletes, community social events, local charities, etc. each month, connecting residents with each other and with our business partners who support the publication.

People are often curious how a print media company is not only alive but thriving in the digital age. The answer is simple: N2 Publishing makes a product that cannot be beat. We create custom publications that transform places people live into places people love. Our publications give members of a neighborhood the opportunity to learn about their neighbors by reading their stories and seeing photos that are important to them. The result: quality publications that echo the voice of the neighborhood and reflect the community itself.

We currently have a publication in Eagle Ranch and Cordillera (including four Cordillera neighborhoods; the Divide, the Summit, the Ranch and Cordillera Valley Club). We are anticipating launching another publication in the Vail Valley hopefully by June 2016.
