Where did it come from
Phil started this journey in 2014 into running an agency, due to daytime commitments the time just wasn’t right. He put the company into a dormant status and left it alone. Fast forward to 2020, he had a very casual client – UK Healing Crystals and a day job. Covid struck and was facing redundancy there was a choice to make, look for a job or push forward as a freelance consultant. He did both!
With a little bit of pushing from a few friends and encouragement from a few more he took a leap and started to build a small client base. That then took a leap and another and another to the point where I had more work than could be practically done, he added freelancers into the mix and that actually meant even more work. (And the job hunt had stopped).
There he was, a solo operator facing full-blown agencies for work.
The plan was to turn it into a limited company in April 2021, which got sped up to December ready to be announced in Feb 2021. The workload increased further with more and more time going into content and social strategies.
