Today marks the 10th anniversary of Mind My Marketing, a milestone that fills me with immense pride. Reflecting on the journey, I am grateful for the business owners I've had the pleasure of meeting over the past decade. Their trust and collaboration have kept me busy, even through economic downturns, the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, and more.
The annual insolvency statistics reveal that a majority of businesses facing administration, specifically eight out of ten, belong to the small business category :-(
As we celebrate this significant anniversary, I can't ignore the harsh reality that this year seems to bring even greater challenges. Many longstanding businesses have closed their doors, and Mind My Marketing hasn't been untouched. To stay afloat, I had to make tough decisions, sacrificing certain subscriptions, memberships, and domains. It's only February, and the struggle is evident for many I have spoken to.
Nevertheless, amidst challenges, Mind My Marketing has endured. In the current year alone, we have continued to handle website management for a multitude of clients, launched a new client website and embarked on an exhilarating project with an innovative client. This already successful entrepreneur has selected Mind My Marketing for a philanthropic venture and I am delighted to be their initial point of contact.
I understand the difficulties many business owners are facing, and I want to offer words of encouragement. Success in these trying times requires celebrating milestones, cherishing each new sale and pursuing innovative ideas with determination. We've navigated challenges before, and we'll do it again.
To all business owners out there, I wish you success in navigating through these tough times. Remember to celebrate your victories, no matter how small, and embrace new ideas with enthusiasm. As Mind My Marketing steps into its second decade, I look forward with optimism, knowing that our adaptability and entrepreneurial spirit will carry us through whatever challenges lie ahead.
