Experts Weigh In: 101 Things Entrepreneurs Are Thankful For

I am thankful for our new location! Five years ago, I started my small business and set off on what has been some of the most challenging and rewarding work of my career. Early on, I had a vision of the type of space I wanted to work and grown my business in: creative, open, warm and inviting. Most importantly, I wanted to find a space in our downtown neighborhood that would be walkable, connected to community and close to all the action. This wasn’t financially feasible at first so we toughed it out for the last five years in an industrial space in the suburbs, quietly growing an amazing little company under the radar. In May of this year, exactly five years to the day of signing the first lease on our first location, I moved my company to a new downtown location perfectly that fits the vision I’ve had in my mind! I’m thankful for all that we’ve achieved this year as an agency but also grateful for the years we spent in a less glamorous space – it’s taught me and my employees how to be patient and work hard. I can’t wait to see what we achieve in the next five years!
