What a decade! Who is that young lass with dark hair? Ten years ago I was celebrating the close of my first year in business. A young 26 year old, single, with a mortgage who decided to start a marketing agency in the middle of the GFC. ‘You’re crazy’ people would say, ‘Aren’t you scared you won’t make any money?’ Ofcourse I was! Starting your own biz wasn’t the norm a decade ago and the what if’s were plentiful... but deep down there was this wave of calm. A knowing that ‘I got this’. With my passion for our great industry and kick ass instincts I knew it was the right path for me.
A decade on, we are going into our eleventh year in business. No longer working solo from our dining table but with a brilliant, passionate team of industry pros who love what they do as much as I do.
There’s been so. many. lessons. I worked with some clients who’s values didn’t align with mine, hired some people who were the wrong fit for Polished and pulled more all nighters than you can throw a stick at... but all of these brought me to where I am today and I’ve truly never felt so excited for a beautiful new year. 2020 is shaping up to be the biggest one yet for Polished, we are making some huge changes to the biz, starting with moving into our new HQ in two weeks time.
To everyone that’s been part of the journey so far, thank you 🖤 We’ve got a brilliant family of clients around us and can’t wait to welcome more in 2020.
Happy new year folks x
