When we started Firebrand, I was often asked ‘who is your target client?’ In the first few weeks, I found this an odd question – ‘well, anyone really.’ But it’s one that needs answering if we’re to succeed.
As we grow Firebrand, we’re sharing decisions in starting up an agency. One early debate is about job titles – namely what they should be, which levels and who gets what. Instead, we opted to kill job titles entirely. Here’s why.
So here we are in month three of Firebrand. Time to share some more lessons with you.
Firebrand has made its first hire. Here we take a look at the character and mindset you need for the initial team members.
Firebrand is now a month old. We’re signing up our first clients, hiring our first team members, and getting the systems in place. Agency life is a rollercoaster, so right now after the big climb to launch, we’re accelerating into the drop, hands in the air while screaming something joyously incoherent a few octaves too high for respectability. We’re having fun, so I thought I’d share five lessons learned so far.
