What originally brought you to the Business Incubator (The Mill)?
  • I first came to The Mill by attending an Entrepreneur Launch Pad meeting. After a few ELP meetings, I eventually found out that the space we were meeting in was a co-working environment for entrepreneurs like me. I met several interesting characters and thought I’d enjoy getting away from the lonely work of being an entrepreneur and place myself around other entrepreneurs doing interesting things. I started working in the co-working space a couple months after regularly¬†attending ELP.
What were some takeaways from your time in our space?
  • While at ELP I got involved with the leadership for a moment and started testing and validating my ideas of creating a marketing agency.
  • During that time, a friend I met from ELP, introduced me to Austin Wilson, who over the next few months became my business partner in my first branding agency, Know Better Brand.
  • ¬†While working out of The Mill we developed¬†and validated our first service product, StoryShift, and I have some great memories of Austin and I¬†hashing it out on the whiteboards in the rooms.
  • We took that service to market and landed our¬†first 15 clients and our first client on retainer while working out of the space.
How has your company grown since joining The Mill?
  • I basically went from an idea of what I wanted my agency to look like in ELP to formalizing the agency with a partner and becoming an in-revenue business.
What was the most valuable thing you received from your time here?
  • A space¬†to test and incubate our ideas.
