I was advised that my last blog post was a bit of a downer and on inspection perhaps it doesn’t reflect entirely where things are at the moment. As I said the post was purely a therapeutic exercise written at the spur of the moment right after a particular thing. It served its purpose and I have very much moved on and things have started falling into place. So, success? What is that?
This week we celebrate our first birthday. Aw so cute! Yes we are officially one year in business and to mark the occasion I thought it might be an idea to list out some of the biggest things I’ve learned personally, in that year. So here are our top three things learned from being in business for one year.
Have you any questions for us? How many times have you heard that? You recognise it? It’s that standard finishing the interview scenario. The balance of power shifts somewhat and now you are asking questions of the interviewer. It’s invigorating right, that relief and sudden gain of control somewhat?

It’s not easy starting a web design business, well any business really for that matter, not in any shape or form. Not one bit. It requires patience, and a whole lot of grit, true grit, John Wayne style. It’s not for the faint of heart nor the hardcore realist. Those who take comfort in seeing a regular amount of money being deposited into their account every week without fail should steer clear. It’s not for those who reach 5 o clock every evening and completely switch off thereafter. No sir.
