Today, Zao turns ten years old.
Even typing those words feels a bit surreal. It feels like just yesterday I was dropping out of high school, getting my GED, and Googling “how to start a business”. Within a few short weeks, our articles of incorporation were filed, business licenses obtained, and my (literal and figurative) hungry, 18-year-old self was pounding the pavement trying to figure out who would pay me to build a website for them.
The journey thus far has not always been easy, but it has always been worth it. We’ve had the opportunity to do some incredible work, partner with amazing clients and agencies, and build life-long friendships with people I would have never met otherwise. I’m in a constant state of awe at the caliber of people I get to be on this journey with. Grateful is too simple a word, but I am certainly that.
To every client, employee, colleague and friend who has been on this journey with us – thank you.
To my wife, Melissa, for her undying patience with me – thank you.
To the One I look to, the Creator of all things, Jesus – thank you.
Zao turns ten years old today. Our very best days are ahead of us.
