Monday 8 February was my first day full time on Shoes of Prey - what a brilliant day :)
As mentioned in a previous post, I'm continuing to do some freelance work with The Campaign Palace, because I couldn't bear to part with my advertising family :) In addition to this, we have taken up office space at The Campaign Palace in an unusually quiet corner of the agency. I'd debated strongly with Michael about decorating the space to stamp Shoes of Prey all over it but the very practical business parter that he is, reminded me that we're a bootstrapped start up... so, as you can see, I used our shoes as decoration and I am working on covering the walls with the press that we have had in the last couple of months - something that never ceases to motivate me to go out there and talk to more people about Shoes of Prey!
Michael and Mike have been working from the couch to date. Personally, I need an office environment to maintain routine and focus in my work. I fear that working from the couch would simply result in sporadic tidying of the house and making elaborate meals. Being at The Campaign Palace means that our distractions are minimised to looking at the amazing view and bouncing ideas around with some of the most inspired minds in the country.
Simply being in the same space as The Campaign Palace provides a great opportunity to cross-pollinate ideas and share learnings. Operating businesses side-by-side like this is a new experience for me and I am excited to see how it unfolds.
Have you 'worked from the couch' before? If so, how did it compare to working from an office?
