Like death and taxes (or if you ask Thanos, he will tell you that he is), change is inevitable. We can’t control it, but we can control how we react to it. Sometimes it’s healthy to embrace new challenges even if they are difficult….and fearful.
Being close to 50 years old while tallying up residences in 7 different states and three other countries besides the US, you can imagine I've worked at quite a few different places. Here in Des Moines specifically, I've led creative efforts at a couple of different tv stations and steered strategy at other marketing and advertising agencies. Since landing as business partners with one of the most creative folks I know, Dave Makin, at Nexus 6, we've developed the No Bullshit Guarantee (NBG).
Have you ever seen someone naked that you didn't care to? I did once, it was in the locker room at the YMCA and I saw a colleague of mine, let's call him Butch, strutting around stark naked. It was by all accounts, unpleasant. I quit later that day.
My suggestions for 2019, get out there and make some new friends, show off the human side of your company, and don’t be afraid of the tech wave that’s coming.

Hell yes you do. We get it, some companies will write you a blog but claim that they own the content as a way to retain your business, that’s bullshit and we don’t play that game. It’s yours to keep once you’ve paid for it.
Firstly, there is no cost to meet with us and talk about what we can do for you. Second, each and every quote is custom. We don’t prepackage anything. We can however say that our base rate is $100/hr, which is a hell of a lot lower than most you will find out there.
Apart from having implications in the movie Blade Runner (where the company gets its name) we ourselves are somewhat of a unicorn in the fact that we offer a fair price for top tier services. We pretty humble, regardless of how many awards we’ve won.
