100's & 1000's
Updated: May 19, 2020
Yahno look hey, reaching 1000 followers on Instagram in the bigger picture of social media and online presence is definitely not the Mac Daddy of digital marketing but is an absolute vibe and quite honestly a really BIG deal to us! “We’d like to thank all our fans, without you, none of this would be possible!” *insert crocodile tears… All jokes aside, we are truly grateful to have received such kiff feedback five months into running our little business. Reaching this mini milestone has us feeling all kinds of warm fuzzy feelings in our bellies, so we thought we’d share some of our journey with you.
Our story started the way most good stories do: over a dop with mates, throwing around ideas of what-ifs and can-you-imagines. After the Dutch courage kicked in, the what-if turned into ‘let’s do this’ and the can-you-imagine turned into something far beyond our wildest dreams. We placed a cosmic order to the universe, took five deep breaths, and with 10 really wide eyes, we took the leap. We became the girls who decided to go for it! Why?
We had all worked in the advertising industry before, some longer than others, but we had seen how it goes down and we struggled to resonate with what seemed to be the norm. You know how the saying goes - “if you don’t like it, change it!” - so we did! We thought: let’s forge our own path, sprinkle kindness around like confetti, work with people that inspire us and just create kiff and compelling work that we love to do. Yahno was born!
Fast forward five months, we have learnt how by just being human in the workplace is such an incredibly powerful tool for productivity, how being kind-hearted and understanding has such a positive impact on creativity. We truly believe in our way of working, and that respect, kindness and some good ol’emotional intelligence (a.k.a not being a doos) can go the distance!
Here’s a look at some of our thoughts:
We are truly grateful for every single person who is standing in our corner, cheering us on and believing in us! Thank you for every like, comment, share, recommendation and investment into our dream. No small act of kindness goes unnoticed. It’s truly incredible how far a heartfelt moment over a beer with some friends can take you.
We leave you with this, “Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” - Roald Dahl. Yahno believe it, baby! It’s real!
