Rockin' Wins at goBRANDgo!- State of St Louis is good
Completing another week of Awesomeness here at goBRANDgo! I am reflecting on what wins to discuss. Overall it was an exhausting week as projects continue to come in and we crank through them. We are now hiring– yes, I said it- hiring a medium level programmer to help share the workload. But to the wins, last week Derek and I met for our Quarterly Advisors meeting with Steven Harris and Teresa Ruzika of Rubin Brown, Jack Mannebach of Enterprise Bank and Trust, and Bob Guest of Affinity Law Group. We meet quarterly with these advisers to evaluate how our business is doing and I have to say that I left our meeting energized and excited from their feedback. The whole team here at goBRANDgo! has invested a lot of time into improving our business and we are seeing a lot of those efforts start to pay off with better processes and systems.
Another huge win was getting to hang out at the State of St. Louis event, Friday morning. Where Mayor Francis Slay, County Executive Charlie Dooley, County Executive Steve Ehlman, and County Executive Mark Kern all discussed how St Louis is doing as a region overall. I go to this event every year and this was definitely the most positive it has been in the last 3 years. All signs are looking to a great economy here locally and we are optimistic about St. Louis’ future. When asked for questions from the audience, Derek boldy raised his hand and asked, “Would you all please talk about what you are doing to support young entrepreneurship in your respect counties and city’s?” This question launched the panel into a large discussion that took the rest of the event. The win for this was that goBRANDgo! was announced to quite a few people and a voice for young entrepreneurship reached out. Subsequent meetings have been set up with Mayor Slay’s office and we hope to meet with the other executives as well.
Lastly, we received a great referral from an awesome client, Skeleton Key (custom application developers) for another company looking for SEO help. I was able to book the meeting and am excited at working with more great people like them!
