1. What made you want to start your own company and what’s your favorite thing about being your own boss?
I started my own company because I wanted to be my own boss but I also wanted to provide a much more transparent approach to website design and digital marketing. A lot of digital firms have a very convoluted way of doing things and a lot of times make their pricing so expensive that startups don’t have an equal shot.
One of the main goals when I started Double Up was to ensure I had a custom product that was affordable for everyone.
2. What does it take to be successful in digital marketing?
Knowledge of the industry and forward thinking. That’s what makes this industry so fun – there are always new ways to be creative and to push the needle. Finding those solutions for clients and getting them ahead of the curve is awesome.
3. What about your work makes you excited to get up in the morning?
Well, for one, working at SharedSpace. The networking opportunities are endless and the atmosphere is great. Working here really doesn’t make it feel like work.
The other reasons is to see how our campaigns are performing. Every day we make a changes to accounts that can have a dramatic effect on it’s performance and coming in every day to see what’s happened is always a rush.
4. How has coworking at SharedSpace changed or grown your business?
My first month here, I doubled my revenue from the previous month. That absolutely changed my business and allowed me to hire my first employee. Revenue has also grown each month that we’ve been here. It’s simply the best decision I made in my first year of business.
5. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A professional baseball player – needless to say, that didn’t pan out However, I get the opportunity to coach at the park I grew up playing at so I can relive my glory days It’s a lot of fun.
