Marketing tips, thoughts, rants.
Back in 2010, Chair 10 was just starting to grow as an agency. I had moved out of the basement office in our home and rented our first real office space, a small suite that could fit two, maybe three people.
It was time to hire our first full-time employee.
So I started interviewing. Hiring your first employee can be a bit scary. Then I found Brandon. We clicked immediately. It was obvious he loved technology. He loved to be immersed in it constantly, think about it critically, talk to others about it, and work in it. Yet despite this love of all things tech, he was also clearly a people person. Someone who could quickly relate to others and build fast, long-lasting bonds.
So Brandon signed on and we started to work together. Looking back, I underestimated how tough it could be stepping into a situation where it was just you and the boss in a small office all day working away. But that didn’t bother Brandon at all. He dove in, and off we went.
