For the last five years, I’ve run a small agency owned by a huge holding company. We had a great run including a couple years where we were the top performing agency (percentage-wise) in the whole happy global network family. You get to wear many hats in small agency life, some ill-fitting, but you learn to love them. In the end, I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything, but I’m ready for the next hat. And don’t worry, small agency life is incredibly humbling – I’m pretty sure my head will still fit.
