A Note From The Founder
I'm so blessed. Sometimes I wonder if this is even real life. I can't believe how much I love what I do and the people I get to work with. My clients are incredible. My team is incredible. My friends in the industry are incredible.
Last year, we grew leaps and bounds. We went from 1 employee at the beginning of 2018 to 8 employees by the beginning of 2019. It was a year full of carefully-considered growth decisions. We added some of the most solid, passionate people I've ever met to the team. We launched Selfie Mirror SGF. We purchased MERP Entertainment LLC. And most importantly, we were greeted with unprecedented support from our clients and community.
I'm both grateful and overwhelmed, encouraged and sincerely reverent of what lays ahead for Elevate. We simply couldn't have come to this without the love and encouragement of our remarkable peers and our unbelievable fans.
Elevate is more than a DJ company. It's a movement. It's a lifestyle. Every day we wake up thrilled to make people's day, one incredible experience at a time. We believe life is made up of these special moments and we're deeply passionate about bringing joy and laughter into people's lives through these moments. Because of this, we are relentlessly committed to the innovation and perfection of our craft. We simply won't stop in our pursuit of excellence. Our clients and our fans deserve it.
And as crazy as this sounds, we owe it to ourselves to create the incredible. We, at Elevate, believe we were born to create good in the world and because of that, what we do is our calling.
I want to say a special thank you to every person who has supported me on this journey. For every kind word you've said, for every prayer or supportive thought, for every recommendation to a friend or a client, thank you. For those who believed in me well before Elevate even existed, thank you immensely. You believed in me before I believed in myself. I am here because of you.
As incredible as 2018 and the first half of 2019 has been, this is only the beginning. In my book, we've only completed chapter one. There is more. So much more. We have some very special things coming down the pipe we're excited to share with you. The best still lays ahead and I'm thrilled for what's next.
