Anyone in my position would be wise to tell you how fond he is of his clients, but I can truly tell you that I LOVE our clients.
As I think back over five years of client relationships, I see entrepreneurs and start-ups, ministries, non-profits, educational institutions, and more. So many of our clients are truly impacting the world in positive ways. This inspires me.
With each new client, it’s a chance to learn about a new industry, target a new audience, and solve for a new set of challenges. Because of this, I arrive at work every morning with energy and excitement for the day ahead.
When I think of our clients…
I think of MVretail. This is a small start up here in Bentonville, originally consisting of two entrepreneurs who left their established careers to follow an idea. They saw an opportunity to create software that would allow companies to manage their mobile work force in the retail environment. They’ve poured over three years of blood, sweat, and tears into this idea, and guess what -- they’re doing it! We’ve stood with MVretail as they’ve moved from idea to income, and they’re just getting started.
I think of Praisecharts. Based in Canada, the only way to describe Praisecharts is “innovative.” I don’t use this word lightly, because I believe there are few real innovators out there. But Praisecharts’ owner Ryan Dahl may be the truest innovator that I have ever known. With the founding of Praisecharts, he innovated the way worship pastors browse, buy, and receive sheet music for their worship services. As our partnership has grown, we’ve gotten to be a part of other innovations – worship planning software, a dynamic chord chart system, a new way for Liturgical churches to plan a service, a new way to train your worship staff, an eBook concept on par with the major distributors out there, and a worship media site that integrates seamlessly with music customers.
I think of Hope Force International. Hope Force is a small non-profit out of Nashville, with the mission of providing relief to people who have had their lives turned upside down by a natural disaster. From Haiti to West Virginia, they are impacting lives. Hope Force can’t help everyone in the world who might need it, but they know the major impact they can have on a life when they show up, listen, offer encouragement, and help rebuild.
I think of NWA Healthy Marriages. Imagine what our families and communities would be like if there was no divorce and no broken homes. This vision leads this non-profit organization to provide couples with training and resources to improve their marriages and relationships. They were the first ever Adair Creative client, and over the past five years I have seen first-hand their powerful impact on our community.
We have way too many awesome clients to name, but as you browse our work you will meet many more of these extraordinary businesses and organizations.
