This time last year, we began discussing our 10th year as a company. Over the span of a month, we’d regularly talk about our history, clients over the years, and the friends we’ve made and the good work we’ve done. Inevitably, our conversations would turn into reminiscing and storytelling, and we’d say things like, “Remember that one project . . . ?” and “Remember that one day . . . ?” and “What about that one time . . . ?”
And it hit us: we weren’t celebrating “MarketPlace” in general; we were celebrating the “ones”: that “one” project, that “one” day, that “one” time with that employee or that “one” client.
In that spirit, we decided that waiting for this year, year 11 (literally the 1s), would be more meaningful than celebrating our 10th year. So that’s what we’re doing.
Over the course of April and May, we’ll be celebrating all those ones: moments, meals, projects, employees, clients, friends, etc. From highlighting 11 client moments to creating an 11-layer dip to staging an 11-lap race to posting the 11 most embarrassing photos in MarketPlace history, we’ll be documenting that celebration on our website and our Facebook page, and we hope you’ll check in and be part of it, because if you’re reading this, you’re one of the “ones” we’re celebrating, one of the ones who’s made us who we are today.
