Part Three: Achieving
It all started with hello, like a lot of good things do. The more Lauren was learning about and exploring AnyaUp, the more she thought maybe this could be the new start she really wanted and had been working towards.
She kept looking at projects businesses needed completed, and was astounded; there were so many opportunities, and she was almost nervous she would be unable to live up to the tasks presented. Lauren finally came across a project that suited her talents perfectly: A business owner needed help marketing in order to increase foot traffic to his restaurant. It was a pretty big project, and the man did not seem to know much about what he needed, but Lauren thought it was perfect! It was flexible, he seemed open to ideas and suggestions, and Lauren really thought she could shape it beautifully to her talents.
She was nervous and worried to finally start taking on the projects she had been waiting so long to work on. In fact, she almost talked her self out of it several times. Then, Lauren realized she couldn’t shy away from this opportunity and before she could convince herself not to again, she messaged him to say hello. She presented her ideas and how she thought she could help him and hit send. His name was Barry.
Barry could not even believe the relief he felt when he got a message from a “creative,” and then another, and another, and so on. It was almost unbelievable that these people who could save his business from going under, were so accessible and he had no idea. It was almost as if he was drowning, and then realized he could touch the bottom. He felt relief and embarrassment, all at once. There were so many choices, and so many creatives who had all these ideas.
He couldn’t be totally relieved yet, however. Just when he thought he had found his saving grace through AnyaUp, his landlord came to the restaurant that very same morning. His landlord conveyed if he was late with the rent for his restaurant one more time, he would have no choice but to evict Barry. Barry sat and cried openly. His dream was slowly breaking before his eyes, and he felt like he couldn’t stop it.
With all of this riding on the success of his marketing campaign, he knew whomever he chose to lead it needed to be special. Thankfully, one of the outlines put before him really stood out. It was well thought out, and made with his own business and projects in mind; they had catered it specifically to him. After much deliberation, Barry decided that person could do the most for his business, and get the attention his restaurant and food deserved. He accepted her request. Her name was Lauren.
