September 16, 2016 will mark a day that I will personally remember forever. It was the day I filed official paperwork for our business to do business in the beautiful State of Florida. It was the day that our first fictitious name was filed. It marks the day our original and still existent domain name was purchased from GoDaddy. Five years ago today so many milestones were only ideas, and with the help of our HeartWired family they have become a reality.
As a small business that works with other small businesses and nonprofits, we realize the importance of recognizing the small achievements we have made along the way. We are well aware (sometimes a little more than we care for) that we cannot succeed alone. Today we celebrate us being supported by you. Whether you are a client, a friend, a business partner or a passerby… Thank you for supporting us!
Five years feels like forever ago and yesterday at the same time.
Things we would like to recognize that we have experienced over the last five years (this list is only part our/your story)
- Became members of the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce
- Have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau
- Completed Cohort 8 of the Jax Bridges program with the Chamber

We have also had the pleasure to serve many local and global clients throughout our journey. Some of the clients only came to us for a season, while others have been here since the beginning. Whether you still receive services from us, or moved on for one reason or another. Once a client, always a friend and part of the HeartWired family. We are thankful every single day for the trust that people put in us to serve their business or organization.
On this special even of our anniversary, we want you to know that your trust and support has always been the biggest drivers for our continued growth!
So what does the next five hold in store?
Currently we are expanding our staff as well as resources. We just brought on new contractors who will be helping provide the level of service you have grown to expect. We are exploring new partnerships in order to be able to serve our clients better. We envision becoming a household name in the local Jacksonville community and beyond for providing purpose driven design and marketing for years to come. We look to the next five years as we did the last five years, with bold dreams, wide-eyed inspiration and the desire to do more to help others.
If you would like to become a part of our mission minded journey to become an agency that makes a difference reach out to us, we are always looking for great (preferably local) talent. If you know someone who can use our services, we love referrals, they are and always will be our favorite kind of marketing. If you would like to discuss your business or organizations goals and develop a strategy to help reach them, let’s talk, our discovery sessions are complimentary. Lastly if you have been positively impacted by us over the past five years we would love to hear about it. Lastly if you would like your voice to be heard, we love Google and Facebook reviews.
May the past five years be a drop in the bucket on the lessons learned, skills achieved and difference we have made. We are truly blessed and look to the future with anticipation on the joys and triumphs it will bring for you all!
