What makes Adam Interesting
I have been in the digital world since around 2004. Starting with freelance work for a number of years after school before taking a job running dev & online marketing for a local agency. In 2007 I took a chance to start my own web development & online marketing agency, The Red Theory, growing that company to as high as 8 staff members during its prime. The agency focused on building/growing various businesses, both online and brick&mortar, in the ~$250k to ~$5M revenue range.
2015-2017 was a span of time where I fell out of love with finding/quoting brochure site projects to pay bills/payroll, and realized many of our clients retained us mostly for access to my direct skillset and experience. Then in 2017 I made a very difficult decision to pare down the full-service offerings of TRT, trim staff, and cease having an outside office space to move back home and focus on consulting over implementing for clients.
Paring down client dev/SEO implementation allows me to continue working on my dev/seo skillset with internal projects I enjoy, like my beardcare company, (Tidy Beards). That keeps me more mentally available for consulting other clients on keeping their digital presence and strategies on point and driving growth.
Moving foward, I am putting a strong focus on running Tidy Beards, as well as diving into subscription-based business like the recently launched RacquetBox - a RacquetBall subscription box, as well as other sub projects launching soon, and various web projects like Delim.co.
Along with that, I continue to dedicate a portion of my time towards outside consulting, and am open to positions/situations described above, as well as other creative ideas that come my way.
