The State of the Agency

Citizen Agency markIt’s been a mad dash these past couple weeks getting things sorted and started out on , the startup that Tara and I founded just about two weeks ago.

We’ve incorporated (in Delaware, of course), had four tremendous individuals agree to be our advisors, found a third agent, begun to work on the underpinnings of our Developer Network (aka CA DevNet) and already have signed up a number of clients and a very cool project that we’ll be talking about over on the new blog (working on a theme for that as well). Oh, we found a lawyer (as Ted said, the only thing that still hasn’t changed in business).

We’ve had some help with our identity and are still working out the kinks, but the business cards that we produced a day before seem to have gone over pretty well so far.

So there’s much more to come and much more to get ideas and advice on, but at least the foundation is beginning to solidify… oh, and if you’re not sure what we’re going to do, y’know, to make money and stuff, well, hold tight, we’re still figuring that one out too. “Go after what you love doing and the rest will follow” seems to be our operating assumption at the moment. We’ll see how it goes.

  1. Uh…so what are you doing? I looked at the website and am totally lost. How can you already have clients if you don’t know what your company is actually going to do?

    Not trying to be mean here… I’m just confused.
