2017: A Year In Review
2017. What a year.
As a creative entrepreneur, last year ushered in new tax policies.
As a woman, the entire year was a rush of empowerment and political action.
As a media professional, Hollywood's power structure started to crumble. The momentum from the fallout created Time's Up.
As an investor and advocate for equal pay, I celebrated a new hashtag: #financialfeminist. My Fridays are now Financial Feminist Fridays.
And just as a person, 2017 was a year that dragged on in the news and flipped through the calendar too quickly. I drank lots of coffee, pitched and completed lots of projects, and tried to enjoy the little things every day.
As for everything else, here's what happened behind the scenes:
25% Revenue growth
50% Local Colorado clients
50% Female clients
22 Casting sessions
8 Commercials cast
38 Days on set
6 TV show productions

We have another big year ahead of us. I'm excited to take it one day at a time and I can't wait to share more with you along the way.
