We’ve Come A Long Way Baby!

Posted by on Jan 4, 2010 in Thinking | No Comments

Print Monkey is officially 2 years old in January and as we are at the start of not only a new year but a new decade, we thought we would share with you some of our goals and dreams, both professional and personal, for this year!

Emma:

It’s been hard work getting the business to this point and I think at times it is important to stop and look back at what we have achieved over the last two years!  Our turnover in year 2 was more than 3 times that of year 1, no mean feat in what are being described as the worst economic conditions of recent history.

Whilst I am incredibly pleased with the success of the business to date, I want to continue to grow and evolve the business.  Having Andy on board now will make this task a lot easier.  Our concentration for 2010 needs to be on new business whilst continuing to support, service & provide for our existing clients.

On a personal level, I am looking forward to helping out in Finn’s class, listening to a whole heap of 5 & 6 year olds read – this truly does give me a break from the commerciality of the business.  I am hoping also to be a whole lot fitter in the coming months – Andy mentioned something about mountain biking to work!!

Here’s to a happy, healthly and prosperous 2010!

Andy:

Over the last 2 years Print Monkey has evolved from a dream into a  profitable business.  It’s not been easy but anything worth doing generally isn’t!

I’ve always thought it is important to enjoy what you do for a living.  I was once told Find a job you love and never work a day again!

And so to 4th Jan 2010, I’m here at Monkey HQ with a smile a mile wide and the view is quite nice too – I sit opposite Emma!

We have a few key areas of growth we are focusing on for 2010 and I have my sleeves rolled up ready to graft!

Personally I am looking forward to working closer to home, after commuting to Brum for 10 years.  The 4 miles to Monkey HQ is fantastic and even better on two wheels!
