5 Years and So Much More to Come

5 Years and So Much More to Come

Holy moly…we’re hitting our 5 year mark in only a couple of days! Who would have guessed! In 5 years I have succeeded beyond my own beliefs, failed to the point of embarrassment, succeeded again, failed again…and yet I keep getting up and coming back for more. I can honestly say this company inspires me to be better, to learn and to continue to strive to be the best every single day. Nothing has scared me more than this company. When I started out people told me I was scared because I cared so much about it’s success. That stands true today. I still care with all my heart about the success of this company. I have so much I want to accomplish, so much I want ITM to be.

When we started out I thought I knew exactly where we were headed. When that didn’t seem to be working (I tend to be a little impatient) I revamped and decided I would let fate guide me and tell me where we were supposed to be. We’ve worked with so many amazing clients and been a part of events that have brought us to tears (sharing in the emotion of the day type of tears). We’ve said yes to jobs, projects and events we shouldn’t have but taken those moments as learning experiences…we learned that we’ll never do that again!

In the last year I have worked with two of the most incredible women I have ever met and with their help we have developed a plan of attack for what comes after this 5 year celebration and I am so excited!!

We are celebrating our 5 year anniversary with a giveaway for our followers and supporters. Within our own team we are celebrating with a better understanding of exactly where we want to be and where we are headed. I am so excited to start saying no to things we really don’t want to do and to be spending our time focussed on what we really want to be doing.

Keep an eye out here for updates on our changes and our plans. We have so much to share with you. The first one is going to be a service that we will now be offering for free. Yes that’s right, for free. Who gives away work for free you ask? We do! Stay tuned!
