It’s funny to look back on the first two anniversaries of Richardson Media Group. Celebrating those first and second milestones felt incredibly gratifying. With each one, I allowed myself time to acknowledge the hard work we’d put in and the newfound accomplishments we’d earned.
In contrast, our third anniversary this past August 1st came and went without even a requisite glass of bubbly, much less any other fanfare. I will admit to drinking a glass of red wine when I got home (as I always do) but I didn’t pause between sips to contemplate anything special. Tuesday was just a regular day at the office, full of phone calls, media plan negotiations, and signing off on monthly operating expense checks.
What does this say about where we are at today compared to when we started?
Here are a few thoughts:
"I remain incredibly inspired by entrepreneurship and derive strength in finding opportunity despite the volatility of today’s economy as well as the ever-changing marketing industry."
Truth is, the journey continues and every day confronts us with new challenges. Doing our best work, keeping open channels of communication, seeking partnerships with other talented marketing folks, and prioritizing ongoing professional development will serve us well into the future.
Happy belated third anniversary, Richardson Media Group.
Maybe we’ll get a cake next year.
