10 Years After: A decade of delivery

Time flies when you’re having fun. And apparently I have been. One of my clients, Dan O’Malley from AutoFloors, surprised the heck out of me with a congratulatory message on my 10 years in business. Whaaatttt? Can it be ten years? I got out all my fingers and counted backwards and forwards and sure enough. 10 years have flown by.

What I’ve learned from the experience:

What has made it a great 10 years:

I have enjoyed seeing colleagues move from corporate jobs to become successful businesses in their own right (The Smithton Inn, Spartan Energy, MGM Law, Law Office of Robert S. Hoffman). I love seeing companies I’ve helped name, thrive (Risknology, SciRisq, ValueMyHorse).

Many clients have taken me with them when they’ve moved to new companies. Most have sent me referrals. And, many clients have become friends.

I have been very lucky to work with restaurants I love (Le Bernardin, Giacomo’s Cibo e Vino) and people I enjoy.

I have had the pleasure to work with many committed entrepreneurs I admire, building strong businesses (Dhukani Interests, Talbridge, Impressions, Duco Energy Services, Belverdere Homes, JESCO Construction, J5Global, Urban Dental, OM-PR, and others.

I’ve also had the pleasure to support organizations like TIRR Foundation, SPE and GHRA; and larger corporations like VPC Signs, Exterran, Sign Resource and IHS, and gain friends along the way.

Mixing my rock references here, but in the words of the Grateful Dead, what a long, strange—wonderful—trip it’s been…Thank you for your loyalty, your commitment and your support!
