I always said I took the job at my dad’s agency for two reasons — first, to learn everything I could about business and the web world and second, so I could work alongside my dad and uncle every day. Family is and always has been deeply important to me, so I couldn’t think of a better way to break into my professional career than with loved ones by my side and in my corner. I showed up each day committed to work and to never stop learning.
My dad started his agency out of his bedroom. From these humble beginnings, 34 years and 15 employees later (including my uncle who was by his side for most of these three decades), he grew his agency into a thriving and successful business. I am proud to say that during my time there, I had a hand in helping grow their web portfolio from five websites to more than 70 websites, which we fully built, managed and secured 24/7.
