Style Statement.com has relaunched, and I didn’t do it alone. I reached out into the world to get guidance and expertise where I needed it, and to my delight, it was a wonderfully rewarding process. I would be remiss to not take a moment to thank the people who helped me get this baby going again.
- To get the ball rolling, I started with a marketing plan from Turner-Riggs, a brilliant husband-and-wife team specializing in strategy and communications. They take your fabulous idea, talk to you, listen to you and then create a step-by-step plan. Kiley weaves her magic by writing and contributing thoughtful ideas; Craig has an impeccable eye and knows the ins and outs of the web. They’re fantastic to work with!
- In the past I’ve felt web developers spoke a different language than me. But Vivien from VG Universe Design changed my mind. She communicates clearly, knows her stuff and has a great eye. She responded to my never-ending questions and design specifications with patience and an unerring sense of what to do. She’s made herself amazingly available, she’s quick and she’s caring to boot.
- Every team needs a grace of all trades. Grace Kerina offers me support, wisdom and an understanding spirit.
- Tracey Ayton’s photographs added visuals that are not only beautiful but also evocative. I love her About page on her website, where she conveys her generous, special spirit with such phrases as “It’s not about me, it’s about you” and “I dream of warm breezes, a beach house, ice tea (unsweetened with a touch of honey), and surrounding myself with things I love.” She’s a perfect match for Style Statement!
- Behind a successful working mama is a supportive loving papa. Thanks C for caring for our little one late at night and early in the morn, thanks for filling the fridge and thanks for pulling up the slack.
Just writing this post reminds me how important it is to tell people how you feel rather than assume they know—especially when it’s encouraging!
