New Year, new ambitions and Getting Connected at Bristol’s Business Expo in March
January 2019 has rolled around and my New Year’s resolution is to grow my business that I started a little over three years ago, as I went freelance and started to work directly with SME’s on their digital content marketing and social media management projects. It’s been a fantastic few years, if somewhat of a roller coaster, and I’ve learnt a lot about starting a business, keeping myself organised, operational and how to manage workload around a busy family life.
I remember my first graduate job back in 1996 working for the Bristol Evening Post in their newspaper sales department and the Sales Director there at the time, took a chance on me when I was first starting out. He said to me that he predicted that I would, one day, be my own boss and run my own company. Words that have stuck with me and that have been at the back of my mind for a long time as I dedicated myself to working flexibly, and sometimes part-time, over the past twenty years or so, enabling me to raise my children at the same time as I pursued and developed my Marketing career. I’m proud of my hard fought for experience as I have continued to juggle work and family responsibilities.
So; here I am. 2019. A brand-new year spread out before me and my own ambition driving me on. I’m in my forties now with all three of my children at school; freeing me up with more energy, experience and enthusiasm than I thought possible; finally, being able to run a business that I passionately believe in; helping to deliver fantastic and first-rate marketing services and results and helping businesses to grow and flourish.
March this year will see SLC Digital Marketing attend our first Get Connected Business Expo on March 7th. This will be a chance to showcase our services and give us a great opportunity to meet more of the local business community in Bristol. In the next few months we’ll be busy preparing for the event and making sure that we’re ready – and we can’t wait to meet you!
A belated Happy New Year to all of our clients and connections and as for 2019 – bring it on!
