After running at breakneck speed for the last few months, I finally got to slow down over the Christmas break.
I spent a lot of time winding down with family and friends. However, I also had a chance to reflect – often over a few beers – on this exciting new adventure that is Ubiquity Lab.
When I look back 2018, it was one hell of a year – particularly the second half.
I wrote a LinkedIn post titled ‘Innovator. Imposter. Optimist. Lunatic.’ in October last year where I admitted I had feelings of self-doubt, as well as questioned if I was mad walking away from my job to start a business.
But I believed in both the opportunity and the business model. And in hindsight this line from the original post was fairly salient:
I’ve been lucky to have a raft of friends and mentors that have equally supported, challenged and cajoled me.
However, their overwhelming feedback has been remarkably similar: believe in yourself, and fight like crazy to make it happen.
While it’s still early days, this move was unequivocally the right one.
And while I’m the first to acknowledge this may be gratuitously self-indulgent, I wanted to highlight some of the key milestones of the last seven months or so.
Ubiquity Lab would be nothing without our clients. And it excites us every single day to work with you to change the customer paradigm, in a way that fast-tracks business success.
The first few episodes are already in the can, and we’ve had some incredible guests.
We’re aiming for this to hit the airwaves in the next month or so.
All in all, it’s been a bloody big year, and also a really cool and fulfilling one.
I’ve learnt a hell of a lot and am proud of the business we’re starting to build.
Bring on 2019.
