How did 10KSB help you?
I left college after two classes, and even though I was able to start and grow my business there were a lot of basics I just didn’t know. 10KSB gave me a crash course in many of these areas, but the most exciting thing 10KSB gave me was an invitation to stop working “in” my business and start working “on” my business. It seems so clear now but at the time my mind was blown. I still need to be reminded of this idea on a regular basis, but the little work I’ve been able to do in a short time now has had a big impact in many areas.

Tell us about a challenge you’ve faced in your business.
We make branded videos for large companies and organizations. Our clients want what everyone else wants, lower cost, higher quality, and faster turnarounds. To address this we’ve had to be creative about the way we collaborate with both our artists as well as clients to continue to add the WOW to all our projects.

What do you enjoy about being a small business owner?
I love the journey. I really feel like anything is possible, and as we grow this business of ours, I get to be reminded of that every day!

Since graduating from the 10KSB Program, is there an accomplishment or goal you’re particularly proud of achieving?
My growth plan was to add Live-Action production to our services. We did. And since I graduated from the program two years ago, with the help of the Live-Action work we’re now doing, we’ve been able to grow Bubba’s by about 200%.
