What a journey the SEO industry has been so far! I’m going to keep this pretty short (believe me, it could be MUCH longer). But here’s a quick recap of the last 3-4 years;
2010-2011 – I decided to “step out” into the world of SEO after doing it on my own in relative obscurity. I was still teaching music full time, and doing SEO on the side. Evolving SEO was founded.
2012 – I was able to make Evolving SEO my full time gig, only teaching music one day a week. I also became a Moz Associate.
2013 – I moved Evolving SEO to a shiny new office in Worcester, MA. I quit teaching music entirely. I spoke at a number of industry events like SMX East in NY. I began occasionally utilizing contractors to help ease extra workload. My wife also works for Evolving SEO part time.
2014 – Early this year, things were getting difficult. I saw the results of some poor business choices and bad health choices. Around March, I decided to turn things around. I started working with a business mentor while at the same time regaining control of my health.
August 15th 2014 – so today, one day before my 35th birthday marks the next big step. It’s time to hire. I’m nervous. Yet I’m more pumped and excited than nervous. In the last few months I have pushed my workload to the limit and it broke. It’s been a hard lesson to learn, but I think I’m coming away stronger from it.
As you can see, we do things differently here and I think this is an exciting opportunity. At least I hope it’s as exciting for someone out there, as it is for me here. I have a lot to share, to teach and most importantly we have clients to delight.
