Bourn Creative may be quiet — much quieter than usual — but internally, we’ve been quietly humming along, serving clients and moving the business forward. Every year I attend events and conferences and the question everyone is asked always pops up repeatedly, “How’s business?” My answer is always the same, “It’s great. We’re working hard and playing hard and continuing to do more of the work we love.”
My work over the past 10 years to implement, test, and refine systems in our business mean that no matter what happens — whether we’re on a 14-day road trip, attending a conference, or neck deep in client work — everything keeps moving forward and clients are served well. In 2019, I spent nearly 90 days away from home and my office and our web projects never skipped a beat. These systems also mean we’ve been able to minimize overhead and keep our team lean and agile, bringing in highly-specialized subcontractors when needed.
In addition to the work I do with clients here at Bourn Creative, I also deliver digital courses like Profitable Project Plan over at JenniferBourn.com. Profitable Project Plan is a comprehensive business training course for designers, developers, consultants, and agencies selling website services and enrollment is about to close for all of 2020.
