Since the summer I’ve been quietly busy mainly because the business exploded in to lots of work.

I’m currently working on 7 Web Projects & 2 film projects. October is a month of delivering a lot of these so it will be quiet for a little while longer on the blog here.

Feeling blessed to have so much work on!

Two Years

By Blog, Work One Comment

This weekend represents the two year birthday of this freelancing lark which for me is a resounding success. A few weeks ago I reached a milestone with the amount of jobs crossing my desk exceeded one hundred which was in itself a real celebration for Ruth and I. It seems like eons ago when I first started – remember this:

Over the past two years I have worked on some amazing projects with some amazing people and I have loved (almost) every single moment of it. Here’s some stats:

  • Cups of tea consumed: 1600
  • biscuits consumed: 1300
  • Pints of water/squash: 1095
  • Websites build: 19
  • Vimeo Posts: 57
  • Megabytes of video shot: 2725
  • Hours of editing: 580
  • Emails Sent: 3515
  • Emails Read: 5857
  • Hours spent on phone: 178
  • Tweets sent: 2990
  • Blog posts written: 14
  • Hours spent staring out my window thinking: 134
  • Post-its used: 264
  • Tracks listened to: 13824
  • Freelancers used: 5
  • Part Timers hired: 1

The Future:

So what’s next? Well – I want to continue and I want to grow the business.
I don’t really know anything about growing a business but I do know that we feel compelled to keep going and to see what happens. We’ve always held lightly to our ambitions and wanted to give more room to organic growth and f course to see what God’s hand in all of this might be.

My hopes are to grow and collaborate a lot more this year. There are still different types of projects I want to do and have yet had the pleasure. I want to combine the great network of professionals I’m connected with. I want to make the business sustainable so I can support a family! I want to create some AMAZING things!

Over the next few months I’ll be looking at bigger business plans, networking opportunities that doesn’t suck, and possibly some rebranding!
