Where do I even begin? It wasn’t too long ago that I was sitting with one of my best chiks discussing my desire to launch Chikmedia as a full-time endeavor. I’ve had the company for over five years, but always had the fall back of a full-time job to “keep me safe.” Entrepreneurship is scary. Screw that, it’s TERRIFYING. The thought of being out there on my own, independently responsible for my own success, was paralyzing. But the vision of being my own boss, starting a company that focused on supporting women, and leading a team of badass chiks, far overshadowed any doubts I had.
2018 was a tremendous year for Chikmedia. We kicked off with a new brand launch and also hosted our first Chiks’ Night Out: a sell out success. From there, the rest was history. From Inns, to financial investors, to school systems, beauty professionals and nonprofits; our client base is diverse as it can be. We are so incredibly grateful to our clients, those who have supported us along the way and those who we are continuing to work with regularly. It takes a village and we’ve found a damn good one!
Everyone always asks what my plans are for the company, but the truth is, I have nothing set in stone. I have never wanted to be a large Marketing & PR firm who employs dozens of people, but I can’t officially take if off the table. I see us growing slowly, but steadily: a vision I often refer to as “contained growth.” I see us hosting more events to bring women together in meaningful ways. I see us drafting marketing strategies, designing social media content, and positioning our clients as experts to regional media outlets. I see a happy team enjoying two Chikmedia retreats a year and inserting their passion into their work every day. I see powerful, successful women and I see a lot of them!
I hope you stay with us for this wild ride here in 2019 as we look forward to having you!
