One Year with AgencySparks!

Posted by Joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 Under: AgencySparks
It is so hard to believe that it has been a year since I founded AgencySparks! Here is the blog post that I wrote in February 2, 2014 announcing the company launch.

I have learned so much in the last year!

Here are a few insights:

1. Being an entrepreneur is hard work. Someone asked me early on what is was like not having a boss anymore. My response was quick: now I have many bosses (the agencies with which we work) vs. just one. Also being counted on by others for their paychecks is a great responsibility.

2. Building a team and culture is highly rewarding. I am lucky to have assembled a fantastic team in Stephanie, Katia, and Anastasia.

3. In November of 2014 I highlighted some of the exciting things that happened for AgencySparks in the first year, but we also had to deal with collections problems, lackluster results, challenging personalities, and other issues. Running a business is full of highs and lows.

Here are some of the statistics from the past year:
This year I am putting together an advisory board and pursuing membership in the Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) Accelerator program to help propel AgencySparks to the next level.

I so appreciate all of your kind words and support. This has been an amazing journey so far, and I am looking forward to an exciting year two for AgencySparks!
