Tell us about yourself

When growing up, I was always interested in photography, design, commercials, radio, video, and speaking engagements. It all became a natural fit to start an agency and do what I love to do. Every day is different, which makes it enjoyable. Our team motivates me each day to bring in better clients and to be more creative and inspiring. Having people around that are great at what they do and passionate about it makes staying motivated very easy.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Building a team that works well together, respects one another, and takes pride in the care we have for our clients.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Making sure all of your staff are doing well, learning, growing, and feeling like they are accomplishing something every day.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Make mistakes and learn from them.
  2. Start early in life.
  3. Make sure you put people in the right places to succeed.
