I pretty much stumbled into Whitespace, the web design and UX agency I started some time ago. All that really happened was I took a step up from freelancing part-time, to retainer work, to full time, to having a business partner. No real start date to speak of or a launch per say. you could call launching the company website a start – but we had been operating for a long time before that though.
Launching my second business to the world on the 1st of June 2012 has been one major accomplishment for me personally. We actually took an idea, built and launched it. The idea was the easy part. Making a tangible, real world product from the idea? That is what I’m most proud of.
What is HumanWrit.es?
HumanWrit.es sells the Writable, a 192 page, square, hard cover notebook, that for every Writable we sell, a classroom of 10 kids receive an exercise book.
It is a high quality notebook that I want people to buy and use irrespective of the story of giving, because if you love using the book, you’ll continue to buy Writables, which means HumanWrit.es will be able to continue to help children in need!
The story of how Adrian, Rich and myself came up with HumanWrit.es is another blog post on its own, but for now, being able to sit here, with a brand new business 9 months after dreaming up the idea is one of pure excitement.
I can’t wait to see where HumanWrit.es will be in 3, 6 and 12 months time and here is to that journey!
