  1. 7 Lessons in 8 Years of Client Services

    Eight years ago next month, I came onboard as Airbag Industries’ first employee (we later became part of Happy Cog).

Here’s what I would share with 2006 Ryan, to not necessarily prevent mistakes but to help him (me) manage them better.

    In the beginning, I worked as a project manager for a retainer client Greg Storey secured. I spent every day for a year talking to lawyers about blogs. I presented designs to lawyers, handled their requests and feedback, and then worked with them to get their new blog populated with content and launched.

Now I am receiving them with enough frequency that we might be onto something. So indulge me as we launch the first installment of “Hey, Hoy!” my (hopefully) semi-regular career advice column.

    The theme for this week? Don’t keep your manager in the dark. They’re there to help you. Let them.
