Happy Anniversary to Me!

Today marks the three year anniversary of my business. Its inception wasn't the result of a genius business plan, or months of preparation or some late-night creative inspiration. No, quite simply, three years ago today, I lost my job. A job I loved. A job that came with a near six figure salary, a corner office overlooking Peachtree Street and a boss I adored. And it all vanished.

After the obligatory crying, panicking and desperate calls to friends, I sat down at my computer in the corner of my spare bedroom and composed an email to everyone I knew, telling them I was immediately available for freelance writing and public relations work. And Scholz Communications was born.

It's not been an easy path or a direct one, but every twist and turn has led me here, and for that I am grateful.  And I'm most especially grateful for all of you--my family and friends and colleagues and clients--who have continued to believe in me and counsel me through the constant fear  and change and self-doubt.

So thank you, one and all.


  1. Cheers to you for using what you have to get what you need. Proud of Scholz Communications and all it has accomplished.

  2. Congratulations, Dear Laura! You are building your empire. So proud to know you and call you my friend! xoox, P

  3. Congratulations! I was just surfing around your site after reading your post over at Gini's place :)

    I celebrated my agency's 6th birthday yesterday and wrote a post to celebrate.

    Here's to us, eh? All the very best with your ventures.

  4. I love your blog, Laura! You're such a fantastic writer-congratulations on 3 years!

  5. And I'll bet it looks nothing like you thought it would when you dropped anchor and committed to your own biz. I challenge you to make year #4 the very best ever only because I know you can.


Thank you so much for reading my blog! I'd love to hear from you!
