A note from our founder

When I quit my job to start this firm back in 2006, I had no idea what being an entrepreneur really meant.

As a corporate marketing communications director, I helped a national products company grow globally and I developed a brand that, today, is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. How could I match that sort of success working with small businesses?

In the years since, I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of organizations in a myriad of industries and spread across five continents. I’ve written books, spoken on big stages, and met quite a few famous people.

But that’s not really success. That’s just the fun icing on top of the cake.

Truly, when I look back on our first 10 years in this business, there are two achievements that I am extraordinarily proud of.

First and foremost, I am proud of what we have been able to accomplish for our clients, a great many of whom we have served over a period of years. In fact, as I write this, I’ve received messages from two clients that have been with us at least seven years each. It’s a rare gift to have productive relationships over such a long period of time but I get to enjoy them every day.

My second source of pride comes from our position as an innovator in this industry. By the end of our third year, we had become one of the first agencies in the country building websites exclusively on WordPress. In more recent history, we essentially invented (and no, that is not an exaggeration) both the methodology and the tools to support marketing automation for true small businesses. That we are always one step ahead means our clients can count on us to have their best interests — both present and future — at heart.

After a decade, I have learned what it means to be an entrepreneur — it means being an effective leader for my team and delivering the best return we possibly can to our clients. There’s no success more meaningful than that.

If you’re looking for a firm to help you lift your marketing to new heights, we would love to speak with you. If you are a current or past client, welcome back!

Either way, we appreciate the time you’ve taken to visit our site and we look forward to speaking with you.

Best regards,
