I met Ruthy Doolittle’s Ruth Bradshaw in 2010 or thereabouts, and we’ve been practicing the “be excellent to each other” ethos of 43k Creative ever since!
We met at a Digital Marketing Agency in Colchester, but it wasn’t long before we both spread our wings – Ruth started up her own digital agency that became Marketing Simply, and I started Written, a simple pay-as-you go copywriting service. As you can imagine, the two companies went hand-in-hand and we have ended up collaborating on many projects together over the years.
Since then, we have also both expanded our horizons, but importantly for this story, Ruth has gone on to follow her passion as an Animal Communicator, and an Energy Alignment Method (EAM) Mentor. At first I thought that this might mean our collaborative adventure together was over, but no! Ruth is busier than ever – so many appearances in the media! – so I get to continue working with her, but on her own personal stuff, (Check her out on RuthyDoolittle.com!) and fortunate enough to be part of her EAM Mentor Case Study Programme.
Ruth has a full suite of amazing talents, and the one thing that unites all of them is her heart-centred approach. I have realised that this is what bought us together on this journey in the first place – a desire to “do nice stuff” for nice people, companies, and brands – not necessarily the fact that I could weave some words while she did her marketing magic!
My takeout from this? Enjoy the ride, embrace the adventure, you never know where it will take you!
