Carefully Crafted on June 15

Thank You

Last year, in the worst of the recession, I decided to quit my safe, steady agency job to start my own company. There were lots of driving forces behind this decision — not least of which was the opportunity to move back to Ohio and live near my family. I know some people thought I was slightly crazy. I mean, really — who voluntarily forgoes job security to move back to Ohio, one of the states most impacted by the recession, to begin a new company?

Apparently, I do. And, I’m so glad I did.

I love what I’m doing. I’m so thankful to the incredible people who have gone out of their way to refer clients my way. Referrals are the best compliment someone in this line of work can receive. I’m especially thankful for my clients — people who want me to be part of their team. It’s hard to believe that in this short time, I’ve had the chance to work such a diverse group of organizations — among them, a NY Times best-selling author … a mompreneur … a FORTUNE 500 company … a UK-based start-up … a Columbus, OH start-up … nonprofits … other communication agencies.

Starting Geben Communication was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made. Like every entrepreneur, once in a blue moon, I wonder if I made the right decision. But, more often, I have an “a-ha” moment, validating that yes, in fact, I absolutely made the right decision. Without getting into details, I recently had one of those moments. I wouldn’t trade the freedom and flexibility — and the ability to create a solid company culture that values relationships — for anything.

Enough of my rambling. I just wanted to say thank you for your support, advice, business, ideas, feedback and faith. I’m so grateful.
