As many of you know, Tom is a dreamer and is always thinking of new ways to help his clients and grow Business by Barnhill. About a year ago, he came to me and said that he thought we should start offering branding and other services like social media support and website development to our clients. Of course, being the realist with a touch of pessimism, I responded with a big N-O. I felt we already had too much on our plates. I'm sure Tom wasn't shocked by my response. He just let it go, but I could see the wheels turning in his mind.
Then, in November at our family photo shoot, our friend, Jen Lowe (JLowe Photos & JLowe Designs) mentioned that she was looking to do more design work. We've known Jen for over 10 years and just love her to pieces. We got into the car after our photo shoot with Jen and Tom was literally bouncing in his seat. He knew Jen would be the perfect addition to Business by Barnhill and could help us grow a real branding side of the business. Jen has worked as a senior designer and art director for several agencies and design firms, along with being a very successful photographer. Having someone with so much experience in design and branding made it a little easier for me to say yes. So, that was the day that we really decided to expand Business by Barnhill.
I like to think and plan and re-think and make lists...and Tom just does...so, he was ready to go full speed ahead and had a great contact for social media services and website development, Sarah Jane Dunaway (Green Rain Design & Clean and Proper). Sarah Jane has a successful business, blog and podcast, and Tom met with her to see if she would be interested in working with us on this new journey. Thankfully, Sarah Jane jumped right in with both feet!
Over the past few months, Tom, Jen, Sarah Jane and I have worked together to create something special for Business by Barnhill clients. In addition to existing accounting, CFO and advising services, we now have service packages for branding, branded photography, social media and website development. And, all of these services will be under the Business by Barnhill umbrella. Tom and I are still the heart of Business by Barnhill and will be involved with each client and project, but you'll now have the expertise and support of two additional amazing small business owners in Jen and Sarah Jane to support you in branding, social media and website development.
Our website has been updated with some great information on these new services, along with more details on Jen and Sarah Jane. http://www.businessbybarnhill.com/services/
