They say that time flies when you’re having fun, and I can report that’s true. At SourceCode, we’re so pleased to have recently celebrated our three year anniversary. 

Though the journey’s been fun, it hasn’t always been easy. I never planned to be an entrepreneur, and learning by doing is scary when your livelihood is at stake. More than once, I had to remind myself of what a great mentor told me. Whenever she was nervous or intimidated, she took comfort and a renewed resolve in the fact that “stupider people have done this” and succeeded. Sometimes you need a good joke to get down to serious business.

When Becky and I founded SourceCode, we committed to marketing to people, not to industries or to titles. We’re not an industrial-scale content mill, sending the same emails to every person or running templated communications programs. The secret of our success? We tell stories, make connections, and build bridges. Not to mention an insatiable desire for growth and to prove the doubters wrong. 

Some of the proudest moments of my life have come through my work SourceCode. We received PRWeek’s Outstanding Boutique Agency of the Year award this summer, and last month I was humbled to make the same publication’s 40 Under 40 list. Thinking back to the start of all this, I’m often amazing at what’s transpired and always humbled by the success and recognition. A sincere thank you to all of you who’ve helped me get here – you know who you are

I could ramble on, about my cofounder Becky and the rest of my incredible colleagues, about my family’s support, about late nights and early mornings helping clients, about the businesses we’ve helped build and the clients who have become friends. Truth be told, I often do. After COVID, I’d be happy to tell you about some of them in person. I honestly can’t wait for that. As for now, I’m not dwelling on the past. I’m looking forward to continuing to build the premier technology PR agency in North America. #LFG.
