Misty Saves the Day Celebrates 1 Year!

By Misty Business, ISO:ALT, Personal, Styled Shoot 4 Comments on Misty Saves the Day Celebrates 1 Year!

It happened: Misty Saves the Day has made it one year, and has been far more successful than I could’ve dreamed.

At the end of this first year, we have 1 employee and 2 interns. We have 28 amazing clients, and we’ve assisted or planned/coordinated 11 photoshoots with 7 more by the end of 2016. We’ve helped numerous people get published, and that has been extraordinarily exciting. I was lucky enough to help style the shoot for the cover of a magazine, help publish another, and have a styled shoot in another.  I got asked to speak on three separate occasions about social media and marketing.  I started a second business, ISO:ALT, an amazing blog for creatives.  I became the VP of Communications for the Hampton Roads Chapter of ILEA.  I’m calling it: it was a banner year.

It’s been a year of adventure, and watching the business grow in a way that I never thought it could. Here’s a fun montage of what’s happened this year – and I’m sure that things will get missed because it was so eventful, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t fantastic:

Guys, this year has been far more than I could’ve hoped for.  Could’ve dreamed!  And these are only the things that I have photos of – the amazing clients, the wonderful blogs I’ve had a chance to write, the things that I’ve helped get published – it’s all meant the world.  I can’t wait to see what next year brings and am looking forward to taking you on the ride with me.

    Speaking as a client of Misty Saves The Day, I simply cannot say enough about her dedication to her client’s success. We have learned so much from her, met and worked with some of the most talented people in the business and my company has more than doubled it’s inquiries and bookings . Misty, congratulations on your banner year….your success is well deserved….you can never go wrong when you truly care about the people you serve!
